Walk into most grocery stores these days and you will find a whole (albeit small) section dedicated to “Gluten Free Foods.” Not only this – but you will also find gluten free foods still scattered throughout the store. Maybe strategically done by the grocer so you’ll buy more.
You’ll find cookies, and flours, and breads, and brownie mixes. You’ll find cereal, cereal bars, and sweets galore. Forget the fruits and vegetables. You have your own aisle dedicated to replacing all the things you haven’t been able to eat on this new celiac buzz.
A research paper done by Lee, Ng, Zivin & Green reviewed the costs and variety of gluten free products available in several types of grocery stores and noted that (what we all know) gluten free products were twice as expensive as other wheat-filled products and was impacted by type of venue.
