Ask Leah! The Ingles Dietitian

Sponsored: Finding gluten-free products at Ingles

ingles dietitianQUESTION: Why aren’t all of your gluten free items on one aisle at my Ingles store?

ANSWER: There are several reasons for this:

1. We have too many! At Ingles we have over  5,000 gluten free items including baked goods,  frozen products and meat/ seafood items (see website list,  it would be impossible to group them all on one aisle.

2. Many brands don’t want their products segregated or separated in a special gluten free section and instead want them featured alongside or near regular versions of their products. 

To make it easier for you to find gluten free items at Ingles we have brown and white tags on items throughout the store. Even if items are tagged you should still double check to make sure you have picked up the correct item or that the item clearly says it is “gluten free” on the packaging.
