Shelf Reliance is now offering certified gluten-free THRIVE foods

Nearly 100 THRIVE foods are now certified gluten-free! We’re proud to announce that the THRIVE foods listed below have gone through a rigorous certification process to ensure they are gluten-free, all at no extra cost to you. Go gluten-free with THRIVE today!

Gluten-Free FAQs

1.  What is the difference between naturally gluten-free and certified gluten-free?
A product that is certified gluten-free is packaged under gluten-free conditions, meaning that the room and machinery it is packaged with are exclusively used for gluten-free products and are tested regularly to ensure that they are gluten-free. The product is also tested for gluten after packaging. Some of our products are naturally gluten-free, but we will not certify them as such if we do not do the gluten-free testing ourselves or cannot verify that the supplier’s manufacturing procedures are gluten-free.
2.  What does gluten-free certification entail?
We are certified gluten by the Gluten Intolerance Group. In order to be certified by them, we sign an annual contract that allows them to inspect our facilities and review our testing records and cleaning procedures.
3. Is there a price difference between certified gluten-free products and other products?
Our certified gluten-free products are no more expensive than the other products we offer. We have taken on the gluten-free certification process as one of our daily quality control processes to ensure the high standard of THRIVE foods. We are excited to provide certified gluten-free products at no additional charge.
4. Are all packaging options certified gluten-free?
Because of the considerable cost and effort involved with certification, our pouches are not certified gluten-free at this time. However, all other packaging options—#10 cans, pantry cans, and buckets—are certified gluten-free.

Nearly 100 THRIVE foods are now certified gluten-free!
