Gluten Free Product Specials at Aldi

I love shopping at Aldi as to me they are much cheaper than the mainstream supermarkets. One downside is that they do not carry many gluten free products. However this week, they are carrying the special ‘Has no…’ range, which is no gluten, wheat or dairy, as well as a couple of other gluten free items.

This is the second time they have had this range as a special item. It is very exciting to me as a person that requires these products to help with their diet and it also increases the awareness of allergy friendly products.

I did buy many items from the range last year and was very pleased with the result. There are a few more items this time around but as they say, it is for a limited time so get in quick if you want to get some

Here is the link to the Aldi catalogue that shows what they have. (scroll down and click on the item names on the left)

Some of the gluten free items include:

  • Gluten Free Plain Flour – $2.99
  • Gluten Free Self Raising Flour – $2.99
  • Gluten Free Rice Crumbs – $2.99
  • Gluten Free Gravy Mix – $2.99
  • Gluten Free Choc Chip Cookies – $2.99
  • Italian Gluten Free Pasta – $2.99
  • Gluten Free Pancake Mix – $2.99
  • Gluten Free Falafel Mix – $2.99
  • Gluten Free Bread Mix – $2.99
  • Gluten Free Wraps – $3.99

and a few more things

What I find interesting is some of these things are not cheaper than the supermarkets. The Aldi Gluten Free Flours, for example, are $2.99 for 500gms yet the Orgran Gluten Free Flour from Coles is $2.99 for 500 gms as well.

Also I can get a 500gm packet of gluten free pasta from Coles for $3, same price as Aldi.

So as always, watch what you buy if you need to watch your pennies. Don’t assume just because its at Aldi it’s cheaper. Although it is wonderful to see them thinking about us gluten free folk!

    Thanks for doing this post! After checking at my local ALDI food store, I too found the price to be not that much different. Their pasta (made in Italy) is apparently really good (especially the rice and corn spaghetti). I have some to try, though your comment about the gluten free flour being the same price as Orgran made me laugh as I can confirm, without a doubt, that much of the ‘has no…’ range (this year at least) is indeed supplied by the aforementioned producer. Hopefully I’m not bursting anyone’s bubbles here making this statement, though I think it’s great that they’re trying to get gluten free foods in for us. Can’t wait to try out their new pastas!
