I created this post featuring the 9 best gluten-free products for people with celiac as part of my May 2020 Celiac Disease Awareness Month campaign. I invited only my favorite brands to be a part of this campaign. Some of this is sponsored content and contains affiliate links. Please see my disclosures.
Celiac Disease Awareness Month is not canceled despite everything going on in the world.
In fact, dare I say that Celiac Disease Awareness Month is needed more than ever for several reasons.
For starters, celiac disease diagnoses continue to rise, perhaps even surge. While it’s generally accepted that one percent of the population has celiac disease, researchers in Denver have strong reason to believe the incidence of the disease is closer to three percent of the population.
On top of surging celiac rates, awareness for the disease remains low. This might explain why it takes a mean average of 11.7 years for someone to get a diagnosis after the first onset of celiac-related symptoms. Take that in. Eleven years!
This means doctors are still not testing their patients for celiac disease despite the presence of symptoms, and it means patients are likely getting misdiagnosed with other disorders, and/or suffering for no reason at all.
Bringing Awareness to Celiac
I’m always looking for innovative ways to bring awareness to celiac disease, and this year is no different.
To help bring awareness to celiac disease and the gluten-free diet, I’m partnering with some of my favorite gluten-free brands – the ones that make my favorite gluten-free products – to do just that.
These gluten-free brands care about the celiac disease community and always ensure there are safe, delicious and awesome products awaiting us.
While it’s never easy eating gluten free, these brands sure to make it easier. So let’s celebrate the companies that celebrate us most!
Best Gluten-Free Products
Below you’ll find nine of the best gluten-free brands on the market today, all hand selected by me and listed in alphabetical order.
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 life much 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 that will ensure you are well fed!

Brazi Bites makes crave-able products my family loves, especially my kids. And because eating gluten free is a family affair, it was a no brainer to include Brazi Bites on my favorites list.
I first fell in love with Brazi Bites cheese bread. The texture of these little balls of dough is amazing. The mouthfeel can’t be beat.
And then they came out with frozen mini-empanadas too. Be still my gluten-free heart.
These snackable bites of joy have a flakey, cheesy crust and are made with only clean ingredients. Best of all, they’re ready after 20 minutes in the oven with no fuss. Lunch (or snack) is served, kids!

Every person with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity needs to know about Canyon Bakehouse. Most of us swear by it because it tastes the most like REAL bread – fluffy, spongy and all!
Discovering Canyon Bakehouse was like running into an old friend that I hadn’t seen in a long time. Now that we’re reunited (Canyon Bakehouse bread + me), we’re inseparable.

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.
I love to create fun snack platters filled with snacky vegetables, dips, and crackers. It keeps me (and my kids) from reaching for sweets every time we’re craving something to eat.
Crunchmaster makes a ton of different types of crackers in a multitude of flavors, making it a no-brainer brand to feature on this best gluten-free products list.

Enjoy Life Foods
Enjoy Life Foods was one of the first brands I discovered when I first started eating gluten free, and I remember my friend telling me that the entire line of Enjoy Life Foods was certified gluten-free.
I’m personally hooked on Enjoy Life’s dairy-free mini chips. They work beautifully in so many of my recipes.
Below you’ll see that I topped sliced apples with nut butter and Enjoy Life mini chocolate chips. Yum!
Enjoy Life Foods make so many products for our community, all portable, snackable, and 100 percent allergy-friendly like the following soft-baked cookies you see below.
In fact, every single item from Enjoy Life Foods is free from the top eight food allergens – wheat, soy, tree nuts, peanuts, shellfish, fish, dairy, and eggs, plus six additional allergens including casein, sesame, sulfites, lupin, and mustard.

Happy Egg Co
I often talk about the importance of eating naturally gluten-free foods, and one of the most bioavailable naturally gluten-free foods are eggs.
I’m picky when it comes to eating any old egg. When have the choice, I choose Happy Eggs and it’s why Happy Eggs is one of the brands I’m celebrating for Celiac Disease Awareness Month.
I eat Happy Eggs almost every morning and love that they have creamy, bright-amber yolks that taste amazing. And these eggs come from hens who get to frolic on over eight acres of pasture!
Here’s what a typical breakfast looks like for me:

I’m always up for celebrating brands that keep my nutrient tank full*, and that’s exactly what MegaFood does for me.
Plus, I’m a sucker for gummy vitamins and soft chews vs. pills, and in this department, MegaFood delivers!
Unfortunately, many gummy vitamins contain gluten, as well as pork, soy, pesticides, and other icky ingredients.
MegaFood gummies and chews are different. They are free from dairy, soy, and gelatin. They are non-GMO project verified, certified glyphosate residue free, and tested for 125+ herbicides and pesticides.
I take daily the Women’s Multivitamin Soft Chews, a B12 Energy Gummies, and a daily Elderberry Immune Support* Gummies. Got to keep that immune system going strong, and MegaFood helps me do just that*.

Mikey’s products are made with simple, recognizable ingredients, making its product line full of foods I can really sink my teeth into!
It all started with Mikey’s English muffin, and today, the company makes all sorts of fun products including the best cassava flour tortillas around and portable breakfast and lunch “pockets.”
Inside these pockets you’ll find a plant-based “cheese” and delicious sauce. The outside crust is perfectly toasted and delicious in taste and texture. And best of all, the pockets are 100 percent gluten, grain, and dairy-free.
