Walmart carries a slew of gluten-free products and even has its own certified gluten-free line of privately labeled products under the Great Value name. I’ll share with you which gluten-free brands you can find at Walmart and what Great Value products are certified gluten free. This post was last updated January 2022 and contains affiliate links. Please see my disclosures.
Walmart has come a long way in its effort to cater to the gluten-free community.
Not only is there a dedicated gluten-free section in many Walmart stores, but also gluten-free products are found peppered throughout the store, you just have to look for them.
If you’re on a budget, or you just want to save some money because eating gluten free is expensive, then Walmart is a wise place to shop for some of your favorite brands. )Did you know researchers found that gluten-free foods cost 242 percent more than their gluten-y counterparts?!?)
The reason gluten-free foods are more expensive are likely because they contain use higher quality, less popular and sometimes more expensive ingredients, and these brands pass on these costs to consumers.
While every Walmart is different, and some locations have more gluten-free foods than others, I have found at least a small section of gluten-free foods in every Walmart I’ve visited.
In my Walmart in Centennial, Colorado, the gluten-free section used to be a very small section, but these days, it’s a good-sized section, and Walmart even has a section in the frozen food aisle dedicated to gluten-free products as well.
To quickly identify the gluten-free section, look for a yellow banner hanging above the section titled, “Gluten Free.” Here’s what it looks like in my local Walmart:
Also, you look for additional gluten-free items throughout the store, not just in the gluten-free designated area. These items are sometimes labeled with a yellow shelf tag, that also says “gluten free.”
The dedicated gluten-free section of frozen foods was more subtle, and harder to find, but most Walmarts will have one. This is where you may find gluten-free breads, tortillas, gluten-free frozen pizzas, frozen meals, frozen waffles and more.
Keep in mind that not all gluten-free products have a yellow shelf tag, so you may have to peck through the aisles to find gluten-free items. I suspect that companies have to pay for the yellow tag and not all do.
For example, some cereals, like Chex and Lucky Charms, which are both labeled “gluten free,” are found in the cereal aisle vs. the dedicated gluten-free aisle. I also noticed that Walmart carried Taste Republic gluten-free pastas, but they were located in the refrigerated aisle near the other refrigerated pastas.
Of course many products are gluten free even if not labeled gluten free, such as peanut butter, canned fruits, etc., and again, you just have to know what to look for.
Certified Gluten Free Great Value Products
Walmart’s private-label brand, Great Value, has a handful of “certified gluten-free products.” These products are certified gluten-free by the Beyond Celiac Gluten-Free Certification Program, a leading third-party gluten-free certifying agency.
Below is a list of certified gluten-free Great Value products at Walmart to date (please remember, Walmart is adding new products all the time, so this list may not be inclusive of all certified gluten-free products):
Great Value Gluten-Free Breads and Pastas:
- 6″ Tortillas
- Hamburger Buns

I found many of these items in the gluten-free section, but some were located elsewhere. I also found that not all the gluten-free products listed are available at all Walmart locations, unfortunately.
Putting Great Value Products to the Nima Sensor Test
Upon the request of a reader, I put two Great Value products to the Nima Sensor test. The Nima Sensor is a portable gluten-detecting device that enables you to test your food for hidden gluten. You can learn more about it in this article, 13 Things to Know About the Nima Sensor.
I first tested the Great Value gluten-free hamburger buns (I wanted to test the bread, but I couldn’t find any). As you can see, Nima is all smiles, which means it did not find any gluten.
I also tested the Cream of Mushroom soup, and again, Nima Sensor didn’t find any gluten. I encourage you to read my article where I discuss store-bought gluten-free soups and share more Nima test results. The Progresso soup results may shock you as they shocked me!

How to Save Money at Walmart
While you’re already saving money just by shopping at Walmart, I have a few other tips to saving money when you shop.
(1) Stock up on naturally gluten-free foods.
Walmart has added a ton of organic fruits and vegetables, so stock up on these healthy, antioxidant rich foods, all which come at a good price.
Additionally, things like beans and rice are naturally gluten-free and you can get them at a great price at Walmart as well.
I also found organic, sustainable and grass-fed meats are now available at Walmart, so don’t pass up on the opportunity to save by purchasing these responsibly-sourced meats.
(2) Bring those coupons.
Just because you shop for gluten-free foods doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a good coupon or two. Are there brands you love and use often – like Enjoy Life, Bob’s Red Mill and Schar?
Check these brands’ websites for printable coupons, and read my tips for finding amazing gluten-free coupons and deals. They really do exist!
(3) Shop private labels.
Walmart’s “Great Value” products are offered at a great price. This means you’ll save even more money going with Walmart’s privately labeled branded mac and cheese than the name brand option.
(4) Buy frozen produce.
A great way to save money on groceries is to buy frozen vegetables. They are often frozen at the peak of freshness and last longer than fresh produce. If you’re looking to save money, Walmart has a ton of frozen vegetables to choose from, all which come at a great price and last for a long time when frozen. Be sure to check labels to ensure everything is gluten free.
