May is National Celiac Disease Awareness Month. An estimated one in 133 Americans has the disease and the only treatment is to maintain a gluten-free diet. Up to 6% of the American population lives with a gluten sensitivity. With so many people interested in going gluten free, check out these tips for saving money on gluten-free products.

Go Natural
Many foods are naturally gluten-free. That means you don't need to spend extra money buying pricey products that try to charge more for cutting out gluten. Oats and wild rice are generally gluten-free and are very inexpensive. Stock up on in-season fruits and vegetables, which are also affordable and naturally gluten free.


Eat Eggs
Eggs are also a naturally gluten-free food item. And they can be a very inexpensive source of protein.


Shop Online
Standard grocery stores seem to be stocking more gluten-free options, but you may be able to find better deals on websites like vitacost.com. The site offers a big selection of gluten-free baking mixes, pasta and condiments. Check for coupon codes that will cut extra cash off your purchase price.


Print Coupons
Check out the websites of your favorite gluten-free brands for printable coupons. Udi's offers $1 off coupon to those who sign up for their email list. Crunchmaster also gives a $1 off coupon for those who sign up for the Crunchmaster Community. Printable coupons are available for Rudi's Gluten Free Bread, Enjoy Life products and EVOL gluten-free frozen meals.


Subscribe and Save
Check out gluten-free brands like Glutino on Amazon which offer a Subscribe and Save option. When you set up regular deliveries of the product you'll enjoy free shipping on orders over $35 and an even lower price per unit. Plus right now Amazon is offering a 20% off instant coupon for Glutino products.


Visit Bargain Grocery Stores
Bargain grocery stores may surprise you by carrying gluten-free products at a fraction of the price of a typical grocery store. One worth checking out is Aldi, which has been known to offer a decent selection of gluten-free products, including those that are naturally gluten free.
