Gluten-free subscription boxes grow in popularity
There is a new food trend that is growing in popularity as more people turn to a gluten-free diet. Subscription boxes that meet a variety of dietary restrictions and needs are becoming more common and being delivered to more homes. People with celiac disease finally have options that allow them to customize the boxes.
Subscription boxes offer consumers the ability to have food delivered to their homes on a monthly or more frequent basis without worrying about remembering payments. Most companies will automatically deduct their fees from bank accounts or credit cards. The boxes tend to fall into several categories with surprise items or custom orders as the most common groups.
People with celiac disease have several subscription box service options that can deliver gluten-free food to their door. It is still important to check ingredients before signing up for the services, but companies are learning it is better to clearly label their items to diminish the number of questions. There are boxes that also cater to other dietary restrictions and do not contain soy or milk.
NatureBox is a popular subscription box service that has more than 100 snack items, and many gluten-free, milk-free, soy-free, nut-free and egg-free choices. You can also select items based on diet by choosing low fat, no sugar, low sodium and other options. The company offers several monthly and prepayment plans, so you can enjoy cranberry pepita crisps or mocha almond bars.
Taste Guru is another gluten-free subscription box service that also offers recipes from chefs. The company changes the box every month by including a variety of gluten-free food products like the NoGii bars. Send Me Gluten Free also offers monthly boxes and includes items such as the Yogavive chocolate apple chips and the I Heart Keenwah quinoa clusters.
