It’s true! Walmart is now carrying gluten free products in test stores with a roll out across the country to follow. Below is a letter from the woman who made it happen, Celiac Sprue Association chapter president and National Foundation for Celiac Awareness volunteer – Carolyn Lynch McKinley. She’s a gluten free dynamo!

This morning my dream came true. I waited two years to the day and it happened. I walked into Walmart and it has been remodeled with new Gluten Free 12 foot aisle. For those of you near the Bentonville store you will find the items below in grocery aisle 9. Words can not express how excited I am to have a store in our community that can help customers save money so they can live better.

The following are currently on the shelf and it is still getting stocked. All of these listed below are quality gluten free food and you can save around $1.00 buying it at Walmart.

I will keep you posted as more items are stocked!! And don’t forget the Great Value Brand will label Gluten Free if it truly is.

Several stores around the country are getting the gf section. Right now I know one store in Springfield, MO and another is Vineland, NJ. If the store does not have a gf section, the gf food will slowly go throughout the aisles.

Thank you to everyone who provide support on this project. Your time was much appreciated.

Selective Substitutions

Since the problem lies with the super-carbs, that is where you need to start. Put your powers to good use by having three days a week with no gluten free substitutes. Stick to lean meats, fruits and veggies on these days. This is a budget friendly idea as well. Put the savings towards buying that new smaller wardrobe. Read More »
