I’m not much of a Walmart shopper myself, but occasionally I find myself in the store, looking for gluten-free food stuff or toiletries.
In my last visit to Walmart, I began to realize the store has come a long way on its journey to offer organic food, sustainable food, and gluten-free groceries. Yes, you can buy gluten-free groceries at Walmart! You just have to know where to look.
Just a few weeks ago I wrote about grass-fed steaks exclusively sold at Walmart from Jones Creek Farm. I was shocked to see that Walmart carries grass-fed beef from a regional farm. This got me thinking about what other organic, sustainable and gluten-free groceries I could find at Walmart.
Many people I know gripe at the idea of going gluten-free (and/or eating healthy), and one of the reasons is because it’s so expensive. I offer up 7 tips to eating healthy on a budget in this post. My philosophy is you pay or or pay later – but that is for another discussion.
However, eating gluten-free and following a healthy diet can be more expensive when it comes to the packaged foods aisle. That’s because most gluten-free foods are made with higher quality and/or speciality ingredients vs. fillers like highly subsidized corn, wheat and soy.
As I walked up and down the grocery store aisles of Walmart, I saw many well-known gluten-free brands (and a few unknowns that I saw for the first time at Walmart) adorning the shelves. While I don’t condone eating tons of packaged foods, particularly those loaded with white flour and sugar, I do feel that some packaged foods have their place in our diets. (By no means do I endorse any of the GF products carried by Walmart, this post just simply lists some of my key GF finds.)
- Glutino: I found Glutino cookies, pretzels and other gluten-free products from this giant in the GF industry. Glutino is owned by Boulder Brands, the parent company of other GF brands including Earth Balance, Evol and Udi’s. You can also purchase Glutino products on Amazon.*
- Blue Diamond: I saw “wheat and gluten-free” crackers from Blue Diamond* at Walmart.
- Mama Mary’s Gluten-Free Pizza Crusts: I was impressed to find ready made gluten-free pizza crusts at Walmart*. I haven’t seen these anywhere else before!
- Gluten-Free Breads: I spotted Schar*, Rudi’s* and Udi’s* bread at Walmart too.
- Martha White’s Gluten-Free Biscuits: I’ve seen GF biscuit mixes before, but I’m not familiar with this brand. However, if you want some GF biscuits, it’s good to know that Walmart has a mix you can buy. Walmart also carries Gluten-Free Bisquick* too.
- Gluten-Free Flour from Betty Crocker: This is a decent all purpose gluten-free flour* – not great but gets the job done.
- Enjoy Life Brownie Mix: The Enjoy Life Baking Mix* was the prize find at Walmart. Although it was $8 a box (super pricey), it is the ONLY store in the Denver metro area (including natural grocery stores) that carries Enjoy Life baking mixes.
- Krusteaz Gluten-Free Cornbread Mix: Krusteaz is another GF brand you see often – and Walmart carries its gluten-free cornbread mixes.*
- 4C Gluten-Free Breadcrumbs: I found gluten-free breadcrumbs by 4C* at Walmart. I’ve never seen these before – such a good find!
- Tinkyada Brown Rice Pasta: This is a delicious gluten-free brown rice pasta* – and it’s a buck less than the natural grocery story retail price.
- I also found things like organic coconut oil (something you’d find in the aisles of a natural grocery store, right?) and flax and chia seeds.
As you can see, Walmart has a good amount of gluten-free products in stock.
Need GF breadcrumbs? Walmart has that.
