    Gluten Free 13th Jun 17 at 5:20 PM
    Hi. This is my 1st post as have just joined and haven't found this subject elsewhere.
    My daughter is on a gluten free diet, so is restricted somewhat with her food intake.
    We live in the central highlands of Scotland and have a Co-op and a Tescos express in our village and both, commendably have a modest g/f section. The nearest large town Stirling, is 15 miles away. We have only found a g/f section in two supermarkets there. Morrisons and Sainsburys.
    With the former, by far, offering the best value! About the most ridiculous price we saw, I think, was a small loaf of bread. About 10 slices for £3.00. Morrisons appear to have taken this on board with the greatest enthusiasm and now after a recent refurbishment, have one side of an entire eisle stocked with G/F

    Do you have a Marks & Spencer? A celiac colleague says that M&S have embraced GF and that they have a wide range. If you do have M&S then I suggest contacting them via email to check

    Thankyou. There are a couple of accessible M&S not too far away. The food hall in Stirling didn't have a lot of choice.

    I have the same problem. my local Tesco sell sandwich thins in white, wholemeal and seeded at £1.60. they are really nice. M and S also sell these.
    It's a bit of trial and error. I've written a list of all the nice products that I've found and although some of the good breads are a bit pricier they have a long shelf life and I always freeze some too.

    if you have a home bargains near by and scour the shelves they often have nakd bars and other gluten free goodies on sale.

    as a treat every now and again there is a website called the gluten free kitchen which sell amazing bakery products but you do have to make an order of £20.

    Tesco Stirling certainly have Free From foods, and you may find a larger range in the Alloa superstore. Alloa also has good yellow sticker reductions on bakery from about 5 pm.
