I love Trader Joe’s as I’m sure most of us do but I do wish they labeled more things gluten free. If you want a complete list of all the gf items as at the front desk area and they’ll give you one.

Disappointed with TJ labeling. They have a ton of products with a "g" icon - but then has a disclaimer - made on shared equipment with wheat. I have brought it to managers' and headquarters' attention - that these products are not really gluten free

Anything labeled gluten free must test under 20ppm. Walnuts, almonds and pecans are safe for celiacs-no shared equipment used to process. If you ask, they will call to verify how an item is processed having an answer in 5-10 minutes.

I only go there for store brand bagels and sandwich bread. I’ll stock up and freeze what i buy so i can make less trips there. Unfriendly staff, parking is a nightmare and no fresh prepared GF food. It’s great if you’re eating organic, not GF.

They have several GF options that are Celiac friendly as well. Their price points for the products are way more reasonable than several other places as well.

I was so excited to get gluten free food from here. I had fresh bagels and bread that were delicious. However I started noticing I had a really bad stomach ache and nausea. I tried to brush it off because I don’t want to always assume it’s from gluten. After further research it turns out not all of their equipment is safe and there’s high probability of cross contamination. Spent a week sick :/.

Their gluten-free bread is almost better than their wheat bread I used to eat. Their website has a list of everything that's GF. Labeling saying so can be tricky to find. Edit: Been getting a reaction from the tortilla chips the last 2 times I had them, so steer clear if you're sensitive. Took away a star. Second Edit: It's disappointing to say, but I've since had a several reactions to a few of their processed foods, not just the chips. Lowered to 1 star.

Many gf baked goods. I love the slices loaf of bread in the green bag. Noticed they put out new varieties of Gf bagels the other day. Their chocolate chip cookies are the best. Also my favs Gf pancake mix (pumpkin for holidays), stuffing mix, flour, noodles, chips, breads, bagels, some frozen items like breaded chicken but be careful to look for the Gf approval I’ve found that even if there is no wheat listed I still don’t feel well.

This is by far my favorite grocery store. They have a hand out that lists all gluten free options, and then most applicable items are also labeled GF too. And the staff is so helpful and friendly!

I’ll give them 1 star because you can’t give zero. Corporate ignored 3 email requests for info, only after I blasted them in social media did they respond in writing with corporate garble. The basis of their business is pre-packaged veggies and fruits, and it’s not unusual to coat them with gluten because of glutens preservative qualities. They would not answer the question even after being asked three times in writing “ are your pre-packaged items coated in gluten”? Stay away at all costs, they have very little that is gluten free anyway.

I love trader joes! I put off going for awhile because I found it overwhelming at first (usually crowded) but then I took the time to walk through and found a lot of really great gluten free and dairy free items. The gf flatbread is great and the best part is most things are decently priced. I'm addicted now!

So much cleaner and better managed than Safeway, however, their GF options are limited and nothing is labeled. Safeway is poorly managed and maintained, and not an enjoyable shopping experience in the least, however, if you’re new to the area or just dropping in and looking for a simpler shopping trip accompanied by clearly marked “Gluten Free” labels, Safeway is a smarter choice. Because most everything is Trader Joe’s brand, very few items come up on my GF app, “The Gluten Free Scanner” (full version). Sure, you can read labels, but as a severe Celiac I need to know the conditions under which food has been handled or processed to ensure that I don’t get sick. I tend to follow the “Certified Gluten Free” labels for anything processed, but as far as I’ve seen, you won’t find anything in TJ’s. So far, so good, though! I can eat [most of] the meats here without contamination and tend to eat a more whole food diet, anyhow, with no issues. (I say “most of” because I’ve only tried chicken, stew meat, and shredded meat from TJ’s, but as a former Floridian who was constantly contaminated by Publix’s meat department, it’s so nice to not get sick from the food you cook at home...) I hope this can help your shopping experience! Best Wishes, Sara

My son was recently diagnosed with Celiac disease, and Trader Joe’s has been a life saver! There are so many gluten-free products available, and they are easy to find with just a little effort. There is a great list of GF products on the website, and if you aren’t quite sure whether something is GF or not, the staff will call and check. The GF bread is delightful - truly the only bread I’ve found so far that isn’t horrible. Just wish there was a store closer to Durham!

Found only a loaf of bread. Not even one breakfast cereal. When I asked an employee, I got a shrug and “gluten-free is mixed in”

Friendliest grocery staff in town! Many budget friendly GF options. Will provide you with a list of all GF options in the entire store if you ask. Always go out of their way to provide a GF treat for kids with allergies at the sample station. **Would like to see more paleo friendly options.

I spent some time in the store reading ingredient labels and found only a minute amount of gluten free products as compared to organic products. Also checked the beer section, nada. They used to carry gf beer but no more! If your conscience says “eat organic” than fine but if you have an autoimmune disease like Celiac, just get produce or move on. I would of given one star concerning gf products but the help were great.

Well, I was just there and they have some gluten free stuff but very little vegan stuff. The list is limited but if you ask for a list before you shop it’s much more helpful. They had one blue cornflakes available but don’t stock VANS. They do have a Trader Joe’s brand frozen pancakes, waffles, cauliflower crust for pizza and some other things. I had to search hard without the list though which ruined my morning.

Trader Joe's used to be my main grocery store before diagnosis. But I'm disappointed at their lack of gluten free options (including things that probably don't really need gluten ingredients for any reason other than cheapness). I loved their pastas and frozen meals and condiments but those are all very limited for me now/off limits. Their chicken sausages are good, and it's a good place to go for frozen veggies and cheeses.

Not great. I guess everyone knows now that they de-listed most of the things that had been labeled GF or no gluten ingredients, probably because of CC complaints as below. Sadly, they didn't take the opportunity to improve the products, just shrank the list down.
