Do any of you mamas have any good links for bulk gluten-free food? (Not rice. I don't digest it very well, which makes going gf harder.) So I'm looking for potato flour, quinoa, etc.

Thanks!

I think Amazon is supposed to have good deals.

I'm going to look at getting a corn grinder ( i'll see if I can find the one my parents have and post the link ) to grind my own...be cheaper anyway.
Right now I buy from UNFI locally.

I've just started buying gluten-free from Amazon.com. I bought a dozen of these Tinkyada noodles:
http://www.amazon.com/Tinkyada-Brown...5684336&sr=8-2

They are good. I also bought a case of Annie's gluten-free mac n cheese. Per unit I save around 30 cents to over a dollar, so that adds up, and shipping is free over $25. I also bought three large bags of Pamela's gluten-free baking mix at around $12 per bag in the 3-pack. My local store has these priced at $17 a bag so Amazon saved me $15 right there. This mix makes killer cookies and banana bread and I also use it to whip up simple and tasty muffins. I am going to try the pizza crust next.

You can browse the gluten-free section there. I enjoy reading the reviews too and getting ideas. I have a feeling I won't be buying very much gluten-free stuff from my local store anymore. It isn't any wonder Amazon stock is going up. Cheaper prices, and delivered to your door for free, it's hard to beat.

I've been trying to do this, too, but GF food is already so expensive that buying in bulk is almost prohibitively so. Amazon is great and I also place orders with Bob's Red Mill. With the added shipping there the cost might not be less than what I pay at Whole Foods, but I'm guaranteed to get as much as I want instead of driving 20 minutes to find there's only one small bag left.

Bob's Red Mill and UNFI are where I get my whole grains for baking bread. For me, BRM is much cheaper, even with shipping, than my local sources.

I bought a case of brown rice flour and amaranth flour (Both organic) off of Amazon some time back for a good price with free shipping somehow.

I also like to check prices at Vitacost. They often have good prices on brands like Bob's Red Mill and Tinkyada.

I know you said you don't digest rice well, bu t I just wanted to put a PSA for those that use rice flour. I have found it in 1 pound bags for just 87 cents at the large asian market! I have used this flour for my celiac dd and dh and they have not complained. It's a lot cheaper than Bob's Mills.

I get tapioca flour at my Asian market, too. It's like 79 cents for a 12 ounce bag.
