2011 Best of Gluten-Free Winners: Part 1, GF Bread & Other Staples

Best of Gluten-Free Awards

Drum roll, please…Here are the long-awaited Best of Gluten-Free Award Winners!

Thank you to the 5,800+ people who voted. Your votes counted, and here they are.

That said, we hardly feel that we could do your voices justice with a simple list. For example, artisanal bakers Mariposa, in Oakland, CA, came very close to winning our brownie category — despite the fact that it went head to head with ‘bigger,’ at least in size, competition. We think these are brands you should know about too! So, stay tuned to profiles of runners-up in the next few weeks.

Meanwhile, here are some results from our big categories. (Wondering where are the other winners? Don’t worry, we’ll be listing restaurant and other winners very soon.)

  1. Thank you so much for posting this. I agree w/Jamie above, now we know what to buy without having to experiment with expensive stuff! I’m anxious to see more categories posted.

  2. This book ” The Essential Gluten-Free Grocery Guide” will become your very best friend in the grocery store or while shopping online for GF foods/products. If you don’t own it, get it. Keep it handy as it will make your GF life so much easier. We don’t go to the grocery store without it.

  3. I am in love with this one company Schar. They are all gluten free and have everything from bread, bagels, pizza crusts, and all different styles of pastas. They also have cookies, crackers, and mixes too! I know they are hard to find in some stores, especially since I have moved. But their site is

  4. I think surveys like this, especially polling 5800 people for your survey certainly helps us in making better decisions in choosing products at the store which leads us to saving money in the long run.


  5. Alisa,

    I’m sorry I hit the wrong key. If you go online to wendys.com they have a gluten free menu you can bring up whenever you need.

  6. I have a feeling that people cannot find some of the better GF products. I know people have different tastes, but Tinkyada??!!!! It is easy to find but,
    in my humble opinion Bi-Aglut (all products), and Glutano Tagliatelle (old- fashioned noodles) are worth the effort to find. In addition, Joan’s flour, cookie mixes, bagels and pizza are wonderful. Also agree that Snyder’s
    taste like real pretzels. This stuff is too expensive to just “settle.”

  7. Excuse me, my aged brain fooled me once more! It’s JULES’ flour and cookie mixes and JOAN’s bagels and pizza. As if this whole GF thing is not confusing enough

  8. the BEST pasta is Bionaturae’s rice, potato, soy spaghetti; it cooks better
    and tastes like the real thing. I buy 6 packages whenever I come across it
    bec. I can’t find it in as many stores now. Please try this! Also Pamela’s
    pancake flour is the best for gravies and any thickener you may need for

  9. Grainless baker makes the best sandwich bread as well as cinnamon raisin breads. This is from my picky daughter who was just diagnosed.

  10. I personally can’t stomach Enjoy Life’s cookies…I love their lentil chips and even dairy free chocolate chips, but the date paste in their cookies is just gross to me. Pamela’s cookies aren’t that great either. I’ve fallen in love with Dr. Lucy’s allergen free cookies…they taste so good even my boyfriend who isn’t on any kind of allergen free diet demands that I keep ordering more. They’re amazing, and they don’t taste like “healthier” cookies…which is the most important thing.
