It’s never too late. Gluten is a protein present in wheat flour, which is widely used in commercial and homemade baked goods. Gluten is also found in flour made from barley, rye, spelled, and triticale, a cross between wheat and rye. Gluten helps the dough to rise and lends shape and a chewy texture to baked goods. Wegmans offers their own store-brand gluten-free packaged options for baking mixes, snack bars, pasta (corn-based), frozen waffles, chicken nuggets, chicken strips, and macaroni & cheese.
