High-Fiber, Gluten-Free Foods
Staff from The Center for Celiac Disease at CHOP have compiled a list of high-fiber, gluten-free foods to help families recognize potentially hazardous foods for their child with celiac disease.
Look for foods that have 3 grams of fiber per serving or are high in fiber. Some suggestions are listed below.
Grains and seeds
- Brown rice (short grain)
- Flaxseed meal can be added to baked products or sprinkled on yogurt or hot cereal
Fruits and vegetables
These fruits and vegetables have edible skins and can be eaten fresh, frozen or dried.
- Collard greens
- String beans
- Beans (black, navy, kidney, pinto, garbanzo)
- Tempeh (whole bean tofu)
- Whole grain corn tortilla chips with black bean or hummus dip
- Trail mix made with nuts, seeds and dried fruit. You can make your own using soy nuts, dried cranberries, pumpkin or sunflower seeds, almonds, etc.
- Yogurt with ground flaxseed sprinkled on top
- Gluten-free granola with milk
