- Herbs and Spices
- Spreads and Oil
- Beverages (most beverages except for beer!)

In the last decade many new companies came up with Gluten Free Alternatives for your Gluten Free Diet. In many supermarkets are now available Gluten Free breads, pizza, pastas, cereals, pastries, snacks, sauces etc. Be careful, to secure that the food is gluten free always double check that the “Gluten Free” Certificate is shown. That gives you 100% security that the product is not made of gluten ingredients. But be aware that Gluten Free Alternatives contain also more fat, read here.
