Successful meal planning requires a little imagination and knowledge – that goes for everyone. Fortunately, many foods are naturally gluten-free, including plain meats, fish, poultry, eggs, milk, legumes, nuts, seeds, fruits, vegetables and grain alternative, as well as flours made from rice, corn, soy and potato that can be substituted for traditional gluten-containing items. Thrifty Foods shows you how!
Thrifty Foods is pleased to offer shoppers 1200 gluten-free items and counting. If there is a specific product you are looking to locate that is not listed, or if you have a question, please call your local store, or get in touch with us by email.
