Your Guide to Gluten-Free Grocery Shopping
At the Deli
Ham and cheese are both gluten-free, right? Not so fast. Low-fat cold cuts are often injected with wheat-based fillers to replace the lost fat. Look for a certified gluten-free label on the package, and if you’re planning to order a gluten-free sandwich at the deli counter, be sure that it’s prepared in a dedicated gluten-free area. Crumbs from gluten-containing breads and shared knives and meat slicers often introduce gluten, so be extra-vigilant here.
