If You Have Celiac Disease: Grains and Plant Foods to Include on Your Grocery List

Quinoa (md)

The only treatment for celiac disease is to eat a gluten-free diet. There are plenty of foods that are naturally gluten-free, including fruits, vegetables, beef, poultry, fish, nuts, eggs and more.  Several delicious and nutritious grains can be used in place of grains that contain gluten.

 

Grains 

  • Amaranth
  • Corn
  • Quinoa
  • Millet
  • Rice
  • Sorghum
  • Teff
 

 

Plant Foods/Starches 

  • Arrowroot
  • Buckwheat
  • Flax
  • Indian rice grass
  • Lentils
  • Potato
  • Sago
  • Soy
  • Tapioca
  • Wild rice
  • Yucca
 

This list is not complete. People with celiac disease should discuss gluten-free food choices with a registered dietitian or physician who specializes in celiac disease. Use the Find a Registered Dietitian tool to locate a registered dietitian in your area. People with celiac disease should always read food ingredient lists carefully to make sure that the food does not contain gluten.
