Yes, rice is naturally Gluten Free including brown rice, white rice, jasmine, basmati as well as other select whole grains such as quinoa! However, it’s always important to read the packaging of your product to make sure and check for the GF label, meaning it is Certified Gluten Free.
What does it mean to be Gluten Free?
Technically, gluten is a protein formed in certain cereal grains like wheat, barley and spelt which are ground into flour for foods like bread, pizza and pasta. Those foods do naturally contain gluten to help them keep their shape and provide a bit of flavor. However, for some, those cereal grains are often difficult to digest and process making it important to know if certain foods contain gluten or not.
