Gluten Free Shopping List

More Coeliac Information

We know how hard it is to figure out what to buy when you are first diagnosed, so we have compiled a beginners shopping list to help new coeliac sufferers figure out what to buy, although you could still use it as a reference even if you were diagnosed years ago! We have included a mix of all sorts including some sweet treats, as we all know in the beginning it's that that keeps us going!
