Grocery Shopping Part 3: Reading Labels

In the past two installments of the “Grocery Shopping” series, we talked about planning your meals and about making your shopping list. Today I want to explain why it is important to read labels when you are at the grocery store. Not because gluten is hidden in everything… but because almost anything can be labeled Gluten Free! 

A few extras in addition to the video:

  • The apps listed are my favorite if I decide to use an app.
  • The FDA guidelines don’t apply to alcohol, so you still need to be extremely careful choosing alcoholic beverages.
  • In general there is an “Allergens” list at the bottom of most updated ingredient lists. I find that anything that doesn’t list “Wheat” is usually safe.

Happy shopping!

    UGH! I hate reading labels but is so required! Yesterday I bought “dry roasted peanuts” …. normally that means peanuts and salt … occasionally an oil ….. Not these!!! salt, sugar, corn starch, corn syrups solids, torula yeast, spices (contains celery), paprika, dried onion, dried garlic, natural flavor, maltodextrin, …… Ugh!
