Thanks for this, the significant other is on a gluten free diet. Most shops are very expensive.
Not a deal, as it's more expensive than "normal" products, and helps spread the idea that this is a legitimate diet - unless you are one of the very few who suffers from coeliac's, then you will not benefit from a gluten free diet. (And Non-coeliacs gluten sensitivity - NCGS - is not a real thing...)

Actually gluten doesn't bring anything good or necessary to your diet a d body so check your facts. Second thing that it's convenient because more and more people do weekly shopping at Lidl and these prices are not so bad
Bloody glutards
I have Celiac disease and trust me, this is a VERY good deal. Thanks for posting connorb13
Good prices compared to other shops. Very helpful - 2 coeliacs in our house. Lidl were very slow in getting gluten free food in - beaten by everyone else including our newsagent. But good to know that they have Finally figured this out. Never used to shop at Lidl because of the bad attitude - now we can give it a go. Hats off to Aldi for getting there much faster!! And Boo to Tesco and Sainbury's for some of the most expensive GF foods on offer.

I assume that you are claiming to have NCGS (as opposed to Coeliac's)? You might want to do some reading... Coeliac's is a very real thing, for approximately 1% of the population. NCGS is almost certainly not.

I read that it's best to have wheat based foods over gluten free even if you have a tolerance as the crap they put in the gluten free stuff is rather questionable.

I suffer with IBS (not been tested for coeliacs but it runs in the family) and have a high reaction to wheat. I tried gluten free breads, and I'm worse off.
Changing diet and dropping both off the list is the best option. I can seem to tolerate some wheat if I have it very rarely. But my best bet it having mints, and mint tea near by. Great way to settle the stomach.

From this page at Science Based Medicine :

"What, then, is the potential harm from restricting gluten from the diet in the millions of people who do not have gluten sensitivity? [...]

For many people they have settled on gluten sensitivity to explain real symptoms they may be having. In this case they may be missing the real cause of their symptoms. There is therefore an opportunity cost of making a false diagnosis.

Perhaps most significantly, a gluten-free diet is very difficult. You have to eliminate all wheat and similar grains from the diet. This has become somewhat easier recently as industry is cashing in on the gluten-free fad, but it is still a significant inconvenience and expense and therefore drain on quality of life.

Further – a gluten free diet eliminates a major category of food from the diet. People on a low or gluten-free diet tend to also be low in whole grains. They risk being deficient in iron and folic acid. A recent study linked low-gluten diets to a higher risk of type-II diabetes.

Avoidance of gluten may also result in a heavy reliance on rice as a staple grain, and this might increase the risk of heavy metal exposure. Again – having a varied diet spreads out exposure to contaminants and toxins as well as maximizing exposure to needed nutrients.“

I think you're misreading my comments - coeliac's is very real. The problem is people who are treating "gluten free" as a fad diet.
I am allergic to wheat to the extent that I stop breathing and need my Epipen and hospital so you don’t have to have Celiac disease to eat gluten free. Even if you want to eat gluten free for health benefits that is up to you. I know someone with severe asthma and they eat gluten free food as the wheat makes their asthma worse. So thank you for posting it is a great deal x

You can have lots of grains without having gluten. Show me scientific proof that wheat contaminated heavily with pesticides and gluten are beneficial to your body and exactly what kind of benefits you get lol
For the benefit of the intelligence intolerant

"Until now it was thought that people with NGCS/NCWS only experienced symptoms and did not have any intestinal damage. However, in July 2016, a team of researchers at Columbia University Medical Center, published a study confirming that wheat exposure in this group is, in fact, triggering a systemic immune reaction and accompanying intestinal cell damage. It is estimated that the impacted population is equal to or even exceeds the number of individuals with celiac disease (the vast majority of whom remain undiagnosed).

At this point, research has not confirmed that gluten is the culprit triggering the immune reaction as is the case with celiac disease. According to head researcher of the study, Dr. Armin Alaedini, “there is some ambiguity there, which is why we are referring to it as non-celiac wheat sensitivity for now.” He explains that “more studies are needed to understand the mechanism and identify the molecular triggers responsible for the breach of the intestinal barrier and the associated symptoms in affected patients.”

Am very much the same here. All your weblinks, medical opinions and studies do not override the blatant fact that eating wheat heavily irritates my IBS. Nobody knows your body like you do and folk will find their own ways to deal with it, 'facts' to the contrary or not.

Posting negative comments and basically inferring folk are fools for doing such reflects on your own issues tbh
As a diagnosed coeliac, this is very welcome news and certainly a good deal.

Isn't this the normal price for rice cakes which are generally gluten free?
Hoping this is national. Thanks for posting, 1 coeliac in our house. Also to the ignorant gluten can make adhd worse specialist put my son on a gf diet and has really helped him.
When will they start a dairy free range, that's what I want to know?
They're way behind the times on that

However it is deal.
So if someone posts a deal on Dr Pepper, but Cherry Coke is cheaper does that prevent the Dr Pepper saving being a deal?
No
So GF “deals” should be compared with other GF items not “normal” food.
As a sufferer of coeliacs I really appreciate this deal being posted.
Had I not seen this post I would not have known Lidl now offer a GF range.
I would not have saved ££
Thanks op, so much cheaper than Tesco’s and the likes ripping the mrs off for being a coeliac!

Just stop wanting to eat junk and move to a low carb ketogenic diet. Problem solved. Money saved.
75% of white people shouldn't be eating grains - Asian have adapted to rice, which is free of gluten.
Humans only started eating grains relatively recently... they are not natural to our diet... IT'S JUNK FOOD!

...or, replacing cheap "bulking agents" in a product's ingredients (such as wheat & oats) with something that is of a higher standard (free from gluten) costs the manufacturer more, so they pass this onto the consumer.
Thank you. As a coeliac, this is such a benefit for me

I’m not sure you know what “relatively recent” means, considering humans have been planting grains for around 10000 years and consuming them way before that.


My OH had most of those symptoms but tested negatively for celiacs. A private nutritionist did blood & patch tests and told him to avoid wheat. Since doing so his symptoms all but disappeared.

(Part of) A comment I made back in 2012...

[ hotukdeals.com/com…646 ]
---
20,000, 2,000, or even 200 years ago our food was not "bulked out" with wheat, rye, barley, oats, & other substances (such as lactose, & food colourings) to make it more attractive to look at or to taste, or to reduce costs in the manufacturing processes.

Pesticides & residues on crops were also not used in bygone years.

Due to the advent of medical research we are, today, able to diagnose more conditions & symptoms (not necessarily linked to food, but also mental & physical impairments, for example).

The intolerances, hypersensitivity, or allergies may well have been as widespread years ago, but we either were not taking the substances or the average life expectancy was less than the typical age at which most symptoms manifest themselves.

LOL. Recent in regards to human evolution. Ancient Egyptians seem to be the earliest to consume grains in large quantities, and the study of their bones shows they had terrible health because of it.
