Not really gluten free
Not a gluten free friendly store. Their gluten free products are not 100% gluten free
Well, they used to be five star a gluten-free grocery store. Now, not so much. I used to go through the aisles and say "no, Christine, do not buy the produce because it goes bad quickly." And always give in.. and my fruits and vegetables would be bad within two days. Now, you can find me bypassing produce and then sifting endlessly through products reading the backs of the packaging just to find something -anything- I can eat. Recently, they removed the gluten-free aisle labels, making it difficult to find gf options. Then, if you finally find a product labeled gluten-free, make sure you also check the back of the packaging to make sure it is in fact gluten-free and made a gluten-free facility. No thanks. Whole Foods ... Harris Teeter ... Farm Fresh.. Etc are where it's at.
ok gf selection but I found out by store employee that their gluten free store brand products are not really gluten free. Certified gluten free is best.
This place has the cheapest gf pasta around. Everything i get here is reasonably priced. Their Sliced meats and cheeses are easily marked gf, which other grocery stores don't do. I love this place
Love it if you ask they will give you a list of everything they sell that is gluten free they are nice and kind and everything is healthy
Gluten free food are clearly marked, so it makes shopping so much easier!
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!
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 couple reactions to a few of their processed foods, not just the chips. Took away another star.
Not too many gf vegan options. I got sick from eating sprouted brown rice. I would only eat items that state gluten free here.
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.
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.
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.
They have some gluten free things, but I've had a reaction to the Trader Joe's brands. When they used to sell the Udi's bread fresh, it was wonderful. No problems. They've also discontinued some of the gluten free pastries from other companies and substituted their own, but no longer gluten free. I also hate that I have to read every label on every shelf to find the few gluten free items mixed in with everything else. I only go there when I can spend and hour looking for gluten free labels. Not a gluten free friendly place. Think they just want to look good, and don't really care.
Trader Joe's GF products are not made by TJ's nor tested to be GF. After repeatedly getting sick trying many of their products, and talking to the local manager and being referred to a manager in Calif., and taking the time to connect with them only to hear more BS. I simply refuse to take my chances with their BS corporate half truths ever again.
A great and relatively cheap place for a casual lunch or dinner (think picnic 😉) I get the BBQ chicken salad that is really good,
