We have a large selection of Gluten Free products from bread, pasta and cookies to spices and sauces. In this section you'll see our certified gluten free products but we also have several other products (for those who follow a gluten free diet by conscious choice rather than absolute necessity) that do not contain gluten but are not certified gluten free.

Pasta

This may seem an obvious category at first … but take into account the many alternative spelt, kamut, rice and quinoa pastas plus the choice of conventional or organic semolina pastas and you’ll see that it’s not just about boring old pasta shapes anymore!

Below we've listed what the company's main pasta ingredient is but they are much more interesting than this list can possible suggest!

We also have the equipment to make your own pasta as well as pasta utensils and tools. It's not hard but it is fun and tasty!

Spices & Seasonings

Spices are usually the first thing people smell when they come into Foodstuffs. They are so evocative of all our memories! We have a huge (yes we mean huge) selection of bulk spices, many which are very obscure and hard to find like asafoetida!

Whether you need an little or a lot, just help yourself! Look for our organic and non-irradiated spices from Simply Organic and Splendor Garden that come packed in glass jars or resealable bags. Arvinda's makes wonderful natural curry powders and Los Chileros has so many varieties of dried or powdered peppers that you'll be amazed! Our salt selection is quite varied with Himalayan Salt being the most popular right now, but we also have wonderful Maldon Salt in smoked and flaked...

Sauces & Condiments

Sauces & Condiments are something we use every day and they can change a whole meal with just a dash of flavour!

We carry several varieties of hot sauce - like Blair's that comes in Sweet to Death or Niagara Habanero that is scorching. Our line of organic mustards are sublime and we even carry a sugarless, low sodium ketchup for those that just can't do without. Check the World Cuisine category too, for more amazing and delicious condiments.
