12 of the best gluten-free snacks

gluten free snacks

Whatever your reason for cutting out gluten, you’ll probably be looking for snacks that are gluten-free and that taste good too. Going gluten-free doesn’t have to mean you miss out on delicious treats, as you can still easily indulge in many of your favourite foods.

Gluten-free snacks need to be carefully sourced, produced and packaged to avoid gluten contamination. But thanks to the substantial growth in the gluten-free food market (worth an estimated £835 million per year ), there are more gluten-free snacks on the shelves than ever before.

From gluten-free crisps to popcorn and more, here are 12 of our favourite gluten-free snacks to add to your shopping basket! Just be sure to double-check the label and ingredients, on any gluten-free foods to be extra careful.

Gluten-free crisps

Looking for gluten-free crisps to tuck into at lunchtime, or to have with delicious dips? We love:

1. Hippeas Salt & Vinegar Vibes Chickpea Puff Snacks

These gluten-free chickpea snacks are light, crunchy, and delicious with 91 calories per pack. Their tantalising salt and vinegar flavour makes them a great savoury snack choice for an afternoon pick-me-up or a late-night treat.

2. Properchips Barbecue Lentil Chips

These lentil chips are a delicious snack that’s vegan, gluten-free and 94kcals per pack. Nothing but natural seasonings are used to flavour these chips, which contain 28% lentil flour. The only downside to all these chips is how moreish they are! It’s never possible to have just one or two!

Gluten-free crackers
