It’s Raining New Gluten-free Foods
It’s raining new gluten-free foods! We’ve put together a list of new gluten-free products that have recently been added to grocery store shelves. While these items are from brands we trust, and boast nutrition labels with ingredients that don’t include gluten, remember that there’s always the risk for cross-contamination to occur in food processing facilities. Testing these foods with your Nima sensor before you consume them will give you more information that confirms what you’re eating is safe.
Gluten-free Breakfast Foods
We all know easy it can be to skip breakfast when you’re running late, but with these new microwaveable Breakfast Bowls from Dr. Praeger’s, there’s no excuse. The zesty Huevos Rancheros version includes cage-free eggs, potatoes, black beans, salsa, and cheese atop a corn tortilla while the Egg Whites and Kale is a medley of cage-free eggs, kale, gold potatoes, onions, and peppers topped with cheddar cheese. Yum!
Gluten-free cereal doesn’t have to be boring or bland. Barbara’s Puffins cereal now comes in a Berry Burst Protein flavor, which means each serving not only tastes like berries but is packed with 6 grams of protein to fuel your day. Made with blue corn instead of wheat, the lightly sweetened cereal puffs are a fun pinkish color that will brighten your morning, no matter what side of the bed you wake up on.
At last! Udi’s has added English muffins to their already-plentiful line of delicious gluten-free foods. Available in whole grain or white, these English muffins are also gluten- and soy-free. We’re super excited for all the new gluten-free breakfast possibilities at our fingertips: breakfast sandwiches, eggs benedict—the list is endless!
Gluten-free Frozen Meals
This single-serving stir-fry is a convenient way to spice up boring lunches. Each bowl starts with a bed of red and brown rice and is topped with broccoli, baby corn, red peppers, shelled edamame, raw shrimp (so they won’t be overcooked once you heat up the meal), and a punch of sriracha sauce. Simply microwave the bowl and your gluten-free meal will be ready in minutes.
Gourmet yet classic, these single-serving pastas are perfect for those who are craving gluten-free comfort food. Whether you’re a college student or a busy professional, anyone who’s crunched for time will appreciate how easy it is to have a warm, gluten-free meal on the table in minutes. Try all of Udi’s tasty varieties: Garlic Mac and Cheese with Spinach, Mac and Cheese, and Pesto Tortellini.
Instead of navigating gluten-free take-out, try this delicious alternative—the two-serving bag is perfect a for date night in. Packed with rice noodles, fresh zucchini, red peppers, carrots, edamame, and cashews all combined with an intense pad Thai sauce, this meal satisfies Thai food cravings without the worry of a non-gluten-free kitchen.
Here’s a gluten-free side dish that’s delicious any time of day, whether you’re trying to round out a meal of scrambled eggs, roasted chicken, or a hearty salad. Made with shredded brussels sprouts, red bliss potatoes, and scallions, these veggie cakes are certified gluten- and soy-free. They come individually wrapped, making it easy to portion out your serving.
Frozen pizza is turning a new corner with this allergen-safe pie. Daiya may be known for its dairy-free products, but this vegan pizza also happens to be a gluten-free pizza! Its 10-inch wheat-free crust is loaded with zesty tomato sauce, slices of meat-free pepperoni and crumbled Italian sausage, and melted shreds of Daiya vegan cheese.
Gluten-free Bread and Pantry Staples
Udi’s calls these new loaves of gluten-free sandwich bread “Our Best Bread Ever!” With a soft texture, this bread is available in either multigrain or soft white varieties in 12-ounce or 24-ounce loaves, depending on how many sandwiches or slices of toast you eat. Don’t forget that like any bread, gluten-free loaves store well in the freezer and still taste fresh upon thawing.
Carrot Ginger is the newest flavor to join the ranks of Amy’s many organic vegetarian soups. It’s made with organic carrots, ginger, coriander, and a bit of cream, and makes for a delicious, light lunch paired with a salad on a rainy spring day. Try topping your bowl of soup with some toasted sunflower seeds for a nut-free crunch!
It can be harder than you might think to find gluten-free salad dressings in the grocery store, especially creamy ones. This classic orange-hued dressing is made with real mayonnaise, tomato paste, tamarind puree, tamari (a gluten-free soy sauce), and uses cornstarch and xanthan gum as thickening agents in place of other glutinous ingredients. It’s thick and tangy, making it not only excellent on salads, but a yummy dipping sauce for fresh veggies or oven-roasted fries.
Who doesn’t love a cookie that tastes like it was just pulled out of the oven? Indulging in these soft-baked gluten-free cookies will satisfy your sweet tooth without compromising your gluten-free safety. Replacing wheat flour with tapioca starch and brown rice flour, these cookies come in three totally tempting flavors: Peanut Butter Coconut, Salted Caramel Cashew, and Maple Pecan Chocolate Chip.
Still haven’t found the perfect gluten-free cracker? Search no more! This hearty cracker is bursting with healthy ingredients like sunflower, sesame, and flax seeds and uses oat flakes, rice bran, and potato fiber instead of wheat. It’s sturdy and won’t crumble on you, making it a great addition to your appetizer platter or snack pantry, whether you’re pairing this crispbread with cheese or dipping it into a bowl of fresh hummus.
Arriving just in time for spring, these refreshing sodas are sweetened with fruit juice and are available in two bright flavors, Rhubarb & Strawberry and Lemon Elderflower. While we think they’d make a great non-alcoholic option for your next garden party, either flavor would also up your cocktail game if mixed with a distilled, gluten-free liquor like rum, tequila, or potato-based vodka.
Whether you’re on the go or just craving a snack, these gluten-free bars will tide your hunger over. They come in indulgent flavors like Chocolate Marshmallow, Banana Caramel, Cranberry Orange, and Maple Sweet Potato, which all sound like desserts to us! Each box contains five crispy bars made with three types of sorghum, plant-based protein, and certified gluten-free oats.
