Frozen selection is good but there are too many times where some of the hot food bar items don't have the ingredients listed or they will list the allergy containing ingredients on the bottom but then when you read the entire ingredient list is has gluten?! It doesn't make any sense. I have also seen people use spoons from a gluten item that is sitting right next to a non gluten item and use it, cross contaminating the food.
I only come here for the gluten free lunch bar options - I love the Tikka Masala. They carefully label allergens on the list of ingredients for each dish. Look carefully before choosing though, some shoppers double dip the utensils.
Very few GF options whole foods has really gone downhill
This store has Gluten Bread in the same location as the Gluten Free bread and Gluten Free muffins. If that was not bad enough, now they have no more than one to two feet away an open GLUTEN cookie bar that has cookies in open bins. There are no lids and there are cookie crumbs being swept up on a continual basis right next to not only the Gluten Free freezer section but the Gluten Free Bread Section. When I wrote to Whole Foods Public Relations, they wrote, "I wanted to clarify that while the cookie bar is located in a nearby proximity to the gluten free freezers, it is very much in compliance with safety regulations as all items in that freezer are sealed and properly cared for to ensure that there is no threat of cross-contamination. As you might know, we don’t limit our gluten free items to one section of the store, rather, they are found throughout our aisles to allow for a simple and convenient shop for our gluten free shoppers. The safety of our shoppers and team members is incredibly important and I can assure you that we are always mindful of the way we merchandise items throughout our store." A sensitive celiac can not even go near that as we all know. The manager of the store at the time stated that there should be no problem and that although we carry gluten free items, we are not a gluten free store. So, you decide! I had to pick one star, if it were up to me they would of gotten a negative 100 stars.
great selection of gluten free baked goods, pushy people shop there though
Hot bar and salad bar for takeout items. There is a small bakery with some GF desserts. Grocery store is average-to-small size, but has the basics.
Average-to-small Whole Foods which has the expected staples. Bulk section and salad bar are nice.
I stay away from the open bars for risk of cross contamination but their packaged foods is great and same with the food selection and flours for GF. Their Carmel sauce and pumpkin spice have gluten in it if you’re ordering from the coffee bar, but their soy milk is GF. I would ask for a cold drink over hot as the wand they use for oat milk is a risk for cross contamination as well.
