I don't know what it's like in your part of the world, but in the two big supermarkets in our town, there are considerably fewer gluten free products available than there used to be - other 'free from' products have taken over a lot of the space in the freezer cabinets devoted to such products, so there's only room for a few gluten free products.

There is another supermarket that sells a greater variety, but that's further away and life these days is busy, following the death of my husband. I'm considering ordering from them online, but I do find it annoying that the free from aisles are reducing the amount of gluten free products in favour of more popular free from products.

By the way, it's my daughter who has coeliac disease.

Sorry to hear that Gillian. It must be tough. Perhaps ordering on-line just might be your answer. You could try it and see how it fits in with perhaps once a month to that other store?

Around here the specialty aisles are growing, with a lot more variety than ever before.

Hi dragnlaw,

Thanks for your suggestion.

I haven't tried ordering anything online - delivery charges are pretty high and there are problems with goods coming into Northern Ireland now.

We have been managing to find a reasonable variety of food now at our local supermarkets. One has a reasonably good variety in their freezer and the other in their chilled aisle. The chilled aisle has a few products that are sold as gluten free and others that just happen to be free of what my daugnter and I refer to as Bold ingredients. There is also a food company here in Northern Ireland which makes all their products gluten free.
