Gluten-Free Foods: 6 Affordable Options (PHOTOS)

Posted: 12/11/10 12:15 PM ET

With the increased awareness of celiac disease and gluten intolerance, new gluten-free products are continually hitting the market. Many of these products come with a high price tag as they must be produced in specially designed kitchens separate from products made with wheat, spelt, rye or barley. Some gluten-free foods contain uncommon flours and ingredients to maximize their texture and palatability. Eating a gluten-free diet does not have to cost a lot of money, however. Many foods are naturally gluten-free and will not add a lot to your grocery bill.


Produce

All fresh and un-sauced frozen fruits and vegetables are gluten-free. Buy vegetables in season as they are usually less expensive. Frozen berries are usually less expensive than fresh. If you have a local farmers' market, consider it as another cheaper produce resource.
