Just noticed Aldi are finally doing a gluten free range, lots of different items on the web link but I really like the 6 muffins for £1.29 - not sure of size but other stores charge around £1 a muffin if its gluten free. Great to see there will be some competition in the gluten free now Aldi has jumped on board. Suppose stock will depend on what your local store has but worth looking out for it if you have to have gluten free.

ALDI currently stocks Gluten-Free products as part of its weekly specials. "Once they're gone, they're gone" as they say. UK stores do not currently have any fixed/standard products that are part of a Gluten-Free range.

I work at Aldi; I recommend that if you shop there & want gluten free products, follow the instructions on the bottom of the receipt and go to http://www.tellaldi.com and suggest that they stock them more regularly & if enough people do this, they probably will at some point (as a regular item and not as a special).

It is sad how many people will buy these that don't need to

Why is that sad?? That's actually a good thing. Ignoring any possible health benefit/deficiency, the fact that so many people will buy them that "don't need to", means that they'll sell well and Aldi might continue to stock them as an everyday item, thus helping those who need Gluten free products to have more choice.
So it seems a good thing to me, not sad at all!

I stocked up on the pasta and crispbread. I can't eat gluten for medical reasons but its good that gluten free is a trend as far as I'm concerned as it makes it so much easier for me.In 2004 when I was first diagnosed there was literally nothing in the supermarkets.I cook from scratch because of that and just don't eat biscuits or cakes but to be able to get anything gluten free is great.I may even try a muffin!

Because only like 1% of people need gluten free food and all the other people buying it thinking that avoiding gluten is healthy are going to deplete the stocks for that 1% who do need to avoid gluten.

But it's mostly sad that people think avoiding gluten is healthy, all while consuming fatty, sugary, salty products like this if they don't have celiac disease.

I'm not disputing about people doing it for health reasons that aren't Coeliacs, I'm just suggesting that it's not necessarily sad and it certainly doesn't "deplete the stocks" for those who need it. Far from it. Without the fad dieters, there wouldn't be nearly as much choice for coeliacs now as there is, because manufacturers just wouldn't do the R&D as there isn't sufficient return on investment. So the 99% (your figures, not mine) are helping the 1% to get a wider variety of food. Speaking from experience, the gluten free food that was available 20 years ago was hard to source and not very appetising. Now you can barely tell the difference in some products. That's thanks to the fad dieters, not people with a genuine intolerance to gluten.

I hadn't considered that, you have a good point for the benefits to those who need it.

It's still sad that is achieved through the poor education of the masses though. I want to punch people in the gut who say 'oh I think I have a slight intolerance' and say that's how you'd feel if you did! ☺

You're spot on, some is quite edible, bread is still crap though :|
