Storing Gluten-Free Foods Separately

7 of 7 in Series: The Essentials of Sharing a Kitchen with Gluten

For the most part, you don’t need to have separate storage spaces for the gluten-containing and gluten-free foods unless you do so for convenience purposes. But if you have kids on a gluten-free diet and others in the family still eat gluten — or if some people in the home have behavioral issues or learning disorders — then having separate storage areas can be a very good idea.

For gluten-free loved ones, it’s easy to look in a pantry and be overwhelmed with all the things they can’t eat, even if the things they can eat actually outnumber the things they can’t.

By separating gluten-containing and gluten-free foods in the pantry, you make choosing from their safe shelves quite easy. Plus, the number of things they can eat becomes more obvious to them. This can be a big psychological boost in what could otherwise be a daunting experience.

Mark gluten-free foods with a “GF” right when you get home from the store so the kids will have an easier time helping you put everything away in the right place.
