In most grocery stores, you will commonly find a section or aisle of gluten free foods with others spread throughout the store. It is convenient, but the selection is limited and focuses on big company brands for quick sales. I understand their logic, but if you are looking to pinpoint your favorite pasta, bread, crackers, etc, you aren’t guaranteed to come across them here. Don’t ignore specialty natural allergy stores like Naturally Soergel’s in Wexford, Gluten Free Zone in Murrysville or Whole Foods Market. I agree that these places are more expensive, but with some products, there is a world of difference worth paying for.
That said, I recently discovered that Whole Foods tries to simplify the process further by adding lists of gluten free products they carry in each store. You pick your store’s location and the list you see corresponds directly to that specific branch. When I pulled up Wexford’s list, there were 24 pages of thoroughly itemized foods and personal care products.
