I have downloaded this guide yearly for the past several years. It is a great resource.
One of the problems with living gluten free is finding products that taste good. This can be based on individual preferences which complicates things.
That being said - I like how they give you the top rated but also the names of other products that were nominated in the category. Frequently, the best products are difficult to find in local stores.
The 2018 Gluten-Free Buyers Guide highlights only the best in gluten-free utilizing The Annual Gluten Free Awards. This year, we had 83,310 individual responses from 3,102 people within the gluten-free community. The guide gives you the opportunity to have all of the results right in an easy to carry book that fits in your purse. This years' guide now highlights 60 gluten free categories. We believe in quality not quantity. You will not need to navigate through 40,000 gluten-free products in our gluten free shopping guide; our process gives you only the very best. Finally, the gluten free experimentation is over!
