Gluten and Wheat Containing Product/Ingredient list


Go to:-  Gluten Free Recipes


The following list contains a few commercially prepared products which may contain gluten or wheat,  plus some common ingredients which should be avoided. The main purpose is to highlight some lesser-known products/ingredients which contain gluten or wheat for  the less initiated, in particular people who do not suffer from allergies themselves, but may have to cook for others who do.


It is not a definitive list of all foods which contain gluten/wheat.


Many of the products below can be made at home and you will find substitutes for some on the Gluten Free recipe page. These will have an asterisk (*) beside them. Also,  check the UK Online Food Shopping  directory  for retailers who sell Gluten and wheat free  products.
