If you live in the UK, you are in luck, because there is now a great choice of gluten free foods available. The only problem is that it tends to be a bit expensive. However, if you know where to look you can find cheap gluten free food in the UK. The good news is that most of it is really good quality too.
UK online stores that sell gluten free products
Online retailers like Amazon offer a good selection of gluten free groceries. They even sell gift hampers (see clickable images below) and many of the suppliers who sell through them offer the option to buy in bulk. Usually, this will save you quite a bit of money on postage and, sometimes, the products themselves.
This hamper contains some lovely sweet treats, making a great gift and a good way to try out a range of gluten free goods.
This hamper would make a lovely gift for a tea lover who is also gluten intolerant.
There are plenty of other online retailers that stock a wide range of gluten free food stuffs. You can easily find them by doing a simple online search. When you do this try to look beyond the first page. There are plenty of online retailers featured on the other pages of the search results, so it is always worth spending a little extra time to find something that is a little different.
Buying gluten free food from UK supermarkets
Most UK supermarkets now stock a good range of gluten free foods. The MySupermarket website is probably the easiest way to find out who stocks what. It also makes it really easy to compare prices and find special offers. However, you do need to bear in mind that some lines will only be stocked in the larger branches or be available if you shop online.
Finding discount vouchers for gluten free food
It is gradually becoming easier to find discount vouchers for food that is suitable for those with gluten intolerances to eat. A great example of a site that often lists them can be reached by clicking this link.
If you do find independent gluten free retailers that you like online, take the time to sign up for their newsletter or agree to accept promotions. You will be surprised by just how many offer discounts and free samples of new products to their regular customers. To avoid your inbox becoming clogged with emails it is probably a good idea to set up a separate email account to do this. That way, you can sign in and see what is on offer once a week or when you run short of items.
