Charcuterie KitVIA MERCHANT

It’s never been better to eat gluten-free. The recent spotlight on celiac disease means more gluten-free snacks gracing store shelves. Shopping for the gluten-free person in your life used to mean opting for non-food items and lackluster treats. Now, whether it’s a birthday, promotion or “just because,” there are plenty of gluten-free gift baskets that are just as delicious—if not more so—than their gluten-laden alternatives.

If you’re an individual with celiac disease or you have a gluten sensitivity, you’ll want to verify your packaged food has a “gluten-free” label before purchasing,” says Registered Dietitian Nancy Snyder, MS, RD. “In order for packaged foods to carry this label, they must contain no more than 20 parts per million of gluten. If there’s no label, be sure to also scan the ingredient statement.”

Nancy recommends that aside from avoiding top contenders—wheat, rye and barley—there are hidden sources of gluten that might not be as obvious. She notes that flavorings, hydrolyzed plant protein and modified food starch are just a few potential sources of gluten. Something to keep in mind is that because wheat is one of the top eight allergens, itor any ingredient containing or derived from wheatmust be declared on the label. “However, barley and rye are not subject to this same treatment,” Snyder warns. “When in doubt, reach out directly to the food manufacturer to request a gluten statement.”

Our list of the best gluten-free gift baskets only includes items that are naturally GF (like fresh produce) or include a certified label so you can shop with confidence.
