Want to know the best gluten-free to buy? Want to know which brands truly serve the celiac disease, gluten sensitivity and food allergy communities? This post will enlighten you with some of the most recommended gluten-free products and brands. Please note some of the brands featured in this post are or have been sponsors of Good For You Gluten Free. This post contains affiliate links. Please see my disclosures.
I’ve been on the gluten-free “diet” for nearly 10 years due to celiac disease. Over the years, I’ve tried a lot of products and I’ve gotten to know a lot of gluten-free brands.
Some foods I’ve liked, others have been okay, and sometimes a product just misses the mark.
Years ago, a company could get away with selling sub-par gluten-free foods. Competition was low and gluten-free products were scarce. The gluten-free community would take what it could get.
But today, with the gluten-free market valued at $7.59 billion with no signs of slowing down, companies can no longer afford to force feed the gluten-free community subpar foods.
Gluten-free people don’t want bland, tasteless, dry or crumbly foods; rather, they want foods with great texture and taste, as well as products that are reasonably priced and from brands we know and trust. Is this too much to ask?
This article includes some of my favorite gluten-free products from some of the most trusted gluten-free and allergy-friendly companies around. These brands make life on the gluten-free spectrum a little easier for all.
Best Gluten-Free Products
The products listed below come from trusted gluten-free brands that truly care about the celiac disease community and always share innovative safe, delicious and awesome gluten-free products. Please note I have ranked brands based on my preference for the brand and trust in the company. All opinions are my own.
(1) Best Gluten-Free Flour: Bob’s Red Mill
Bob’s Red Mill has been one of my favorite brands for a long time and with good reason. The company makes a slew of gluten-free flours and products that make living a gluten-free lifestyle much easier and tastier.
While I love many Bob’s Red Mill products, my favorite is Bob’s Red Mill’s 1:1 gluten-free flour blend.
I use this flour as a cup for cup swap in most baked goods recipes. When a recipe calls for one cup of wheat flour, I use one cup of Bob’s 1:1 blend.
Search my website for the keywords “Bob’s Red Mill” and you’ll find a ton of inspiring recipes, including this list of 17+ Classic Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Flour Recipes. All of my recipes will ensure you are well fed!
Other Gluten-Free Flour Brands:
- Better Batter
- Cup4Cup Flour
- GF Jules All-Purpose Flour
- King Arthur’s Measure for Measure GF Flour
- Pamela’s All-Purpose GF Baking Flour
(2) Best Gluten-Free Bread: Canyon Bakehouse
Every person with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity needs to know about Canyon Bakehouse. Most people on the gluten-free diet swear by it because it tastes the most like real bread – soft, fluffy, spongy and all!
I highly recommend purchasing the Canyon Bakehouse Bread in the stay-fresh, shelf-stable packaging. It’s way softer than the freezer-found loaves of bread. Trust me on this one!
Other Gluten-Free Bread Brands:
- BFree Breads
- Outside the Breadbox
- Bread Srsly (sourdough)
- Chebe Bread Mixes
- Franz (also makes a stay-fresh bread)
- Little Northern Bakehouse
- Schar Gluten-Free Bread
- Three Bakers Bread
(3) Best Gluten-Free Cracker: Crunchmaster
When I have a bad case of the munchies, I know I can always turn to Crunchmaster crackers to give me that taste and crunch I desire. These “crack”ers have gotten me through many intense snack attacks over the years.
Crunchmaster makes a variety of crackers in a multitude of flavors, making it a no-brainer brand to feature on my best gluten-free products list.
Other Gluten-Free Cracker Brands:
- Blue Diamond Almond Nut Thins
- Good Thins
- Mary’s Gone Crackers
- Milton’s Gluten-Free Crackers
- Nairn’s Cookies and Crackers
- Simple Mills Crackers
(4) Best Gluten-Free Cereal: Three Wishes Cereal
My wish for a high-protein, low-sugar, grain-free cereal came true when I discovered Three Wishes Cereal. Three Wishes cereal tastes like the cereal of my childhood, albeit without all the junk ingredients. I snack on it like popcorn.
Other Gluten-Free Cereal Brands:
(5) Best Gluten-Free Pasta: Tinkyada Pasta & Jovial Pasta (tie)
I think Tinkyada and Jovial brown rice pastas have the best texture and taste compared to other corn- or quinoa-based pastas. Both are widely found in grocery stores nationwide, including Walmart.
Other Gluten-Free Pasta Brands:
- Banza Chickpea (GF) Pasta
- Explore Cuisine Black Bean Noodles
- GoGo Quinoa Pasta
- Lotus Foods Rice Ramen (see my article about gluten-free ramen noodles)
- Lundberg Farms
- Miracle Noodles
- Right Rice
- Tolerant Lentil & Bean Pastas
- truRoots Ancient Grain Gluten-Free Pasta
There are several brands of pasta that make fresh vs. dried pasta. You can find these pastas in the fridge or freezer section at many speciality grocery stores.
I love all of these brands so much, and cannot choose a favorite. They are all so good!
- Cappello’s Almond Flour Pasta
- RP’s Pasta
- Taste Republic
- Trader Joe’s Gluten-Free Egg Fettuccine Noodles
(6) Best Allergy-Friendly Brand: Enjoy Life Foods
Although there are more than 160 foods that can cause an allergic reaction in people, there are eight allergens responsible for 90 percent of food reactions in the U.S., including:
- Crustacean shellfish
- Tree nuts
Enjoy Life Foods was one of the first brands to make its entire line of products free from the Top 8 allergens, and the company continues to churn out tasty snack foods for kids and the whole family. I’m personally hooked on Enjoy Life’s dairy-free mini chips. They work beautifully in so many of my recipes.
Other Top-8 Allergy-Free Brands:
- Better Batter makes a variety of gluten-free flours and cake mixes. You can find the company’s all-purpose flour mix on Amazon.
- free2b foods makes nut-free sunbutter cups, bagel chips and other treats. All free2b foods are free from the top eight allergens plus free from coconut, mustard, sesame, and corn. Shop for free2be foods products online.
- Libre Naturals is a Canadian company that makes a variety of granola bars and oatmeal that is free from 11 food allergens (peanuts, tree nuts, dairy, eggs, soy, wheat, fish, shellfish, sesame, sulfites and mustard). All Libre Naturals products are made in a dedicated gluten-free and allergen-free facility.
- Made Good makes a variety of snack products including granola bars and cookies. All Made Good products are free from the top eight allergens in a dedicated nut-free facility.
- Namaste Foods makes a variety of gluten-free and free-from flour blends and baking mixes, including my personal favorite chocolate cake mix, which nicely turns into chocolate cupcakes too in a pinch. All Namaste products are free from the top eight allergens and made in a privately-owned gluten and allergen-free facility certified by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization.
(7) Best Gluten-Free Tortillas: Mikey’s
Mikey’s products are made with simple, recognizable ingredients, making its product line full of frozen foods I can really sink my teeth into. But if I’m being honest, I love Mikey’s cassava flour tortillas the best. When heated, they are soft and have a perfect flour-like texture.
Other Gluten-Free Tortilla Brands:

(8) Best Gluten-Free Frozen Pizza: Etalia
Etalia frozen gluten-free pizza is the most artisan-like gluten-free frozen pizza I’ve found to date. The crust is delicious and the toppings are far superior to anything you’d find at a grocery store. You can find Etalia online or at Whole Foods and other natural food grocery stores.
Please note that Freschetta gluten-free pizza is a close second, and it’s easier to find Freschetta at your local grocery store.
You can find my complete list of gluten-free frozen pizzas in my article, Best Gluten-Free Frozen Pizza: Ranked and Tested for Hidden Gluten.
(9) Best Makeup Brand: Red Apple Lipstick
Red Apple Lipstick is a brand that cares deeply about the celiac and gluten-free community. Every single product is certified gluten free, a rarity in the makeup space. You can choose from lipsticks and lip balms, to mascara, blushes and a variety of makeup you’ll love.

Other Great Gluten-Free Brands
Here are a few great gluten-free brands that don’t fit into one “best of” category but that definitely feed and fuel the gluten-free community:
- Aleia’s Gluten Free makes breadcrumbs that I really love. I’m not a fan of Aleia’s cookies (much too dry), but the breadcrumbs and oven-fry mixes are fantastic!
- Brazi Bites makes crave-able Brazilian cheese bread my family loves, especially my kids. It’s a no brainer to include Brazi Bites as one of my favorite gluten-free brands.
- Glutino makes some delicious cookies and other gluten-free treats worth noting. For a long time, Glutino was the brand to buy if you wanted an Oreo-like cookie. But once Oreo released its gluten-free Oreo cookies, Glutinos took second fiddle.
- The Good Crisp company makes gluten-free Pringle-like chips that my family is totally addicted to. Read my article, Are Doritos Gluten Free? And a List of Chips that are Gluten Free to learn more about gluten-free chips. You can get Good Crisp chips on Amazon and at Whole Foods.
- Goody Girl makes cookies and snacks that are delicious and indulgent. The company’s thin mint cookie rivals the Girl Scouts famous — albeit gluten-y — version.
- Ian’s Gluten Free makes frozen chicken nuggets, salmon bites and panko breadcrumbs. I enjoy so many of Ian’s allergy-friendly products.
- Kinnikinnick: All products are made in a dedicated gluten-free facility and are free from gluten, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, and soy. They make a variety of baking mixes and cookies that are pretty good. Shop for Kinnikinnick products here.
- Namaste: Makes really good baking mixes. I personally buy the Namaste chocolate cake mix, which I use to make a simple chocolate cake or cupcakes for my daughter’s school. Namaste is also a top 8 allergen-free brand.
- Simple Mills makes crackers and baking mixes. I think most, if not all, of Simple Mills products are grain-free. I’ll add that all of the Simple Mill products I’ve tried have been pretty good too.
