Food and Drink Guide

  • Shopping for gluten free food is made easy with Coeliac UK's Food and Drink Guide.
  • It contains foods that you can eat if you have coeliac disease.
  • Remember to keep your printed Guide up to date with updates we provide.

2018 Food and Drink GuideShopping for gluten free food is made easy with Coeliac UK's Food and Drink Guide, part of our wider Food Information Service which give you reliable, independent and timely information to live well gluten free. Our online Food and Drink information can be accessed by logging in as a member and via our mobile phone app Gluten free food checker. They provide the most up to date information including ingredients lists and nutritional information. And you can refine your product search by any other dietary preferences you may have.

The Food and Drink Guide is split into two sections, to reflect the laws that apply to gluten free foods.

Section 1

  • Lists foods that are gluten free.
  • These foods contain gluten at a level of no more than 20 parts per million (ppm).
  • These foods comply with the law on gluten free.
  • Foods in this section include:
    • specialist, substitute foods available on prescription
    • foods carrying the Coeliac UK Crossed Grain symbol.
  • There is also a reference list of supermarket own brand free from foods and other brands labelled gluten free.

 Section 2

  • Lists foods made without gluten containing ingredients and with controls in place to minimise the risk of cross contamination with gluten containing ingredients.
  • Foods in this section include supermarket own brand foods as well as a reference list of everyday food brands such as soups, sauces and ready meals.

You may find that some of your favourite products are not listed in this year’s Guide. We now provide product information on over 100,000 gluten free and mainstream products by contacting over 200 manufacturers and sourcing product information from a third party, Brandbank. If you can’t find a particular brand within our services this may be because they have not provided us with information and have not provided information to Brandbank. It might also be because the product contains gluten.  If you have any questions please see our frequently asked questions or contact us.
