SwansonVitamins.com is Gluten-Free Headquarters

FARGO, N.D.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–With more than 8,000 gluten-free food items offered on its website, www.SwansonVitamins.com,
Swanson Health Products is a leader in the gluten-free obsession that is
dominating grocery sales today. From flours, snacks, cereals, pastas,
cookies and more, the gluten-free selection at Swanson is varied and
vast. A lifelong gluten-free diet is necessary for those who suffer from
celiac disease, an autoimmune disorder that damages the small intestine
lining and prevents absorption of nutrients from foods that are
consumed. The damage is due to a reaction to eating gluten, a protein
found in wheat, barley, rye, and possibly oats.

“Nearly a third of our grocery inventory is devoted to gluten-free
items,” said Swanson CEO Ken Harris. “We are not newcomers to this
development. Swanson was selling gluten-free products for nearly ten
years before it became a household name. Therefore, we carry brands that
are exceptional in customer satisfaction, longevity and quality.”

Swanson currently carries 126 gluten-free pastas, including best-seller Tinkyada
Brown Rice Pasta Spaghetti Style
. From spirals, penne, elbow,
fettuccini, shells, fusilli, rotini and lasagna, the pasta selection at
Swanson would make any Italian mother happy.

The whole grain selection at Swanson is even larger than the gluten-free
pasta section of the website, offering 330 whole grains. Swanson carries
a huge variety of quinoa, millet, teff, buckwheat, amaranth, spelt,
groats, freekeh, corn, oat and brown rice flours, a large variety of
rices and oats, including Bob’s
Red Mill Gluten Free Old Fashioned Rolled Oats.

Swanson carries more than 120 gluten-free baking mixes, making it easy
to enjoy pancakes and waffles, muffins, biscuits, breads, brownies and
much more. Many Swanson customers start their day with pancakes made
with top-selling Kinnikinnick
Foods Pancake & Waffle Mix
