Gluten Free Cornbread

You might think that all cornbread would be gluten free cornbread, since corn has no gluten in it. However, not all cornbread is gluten free corn bread. Cornbread often contains a mixture of cornmeal and wheat flour. Many popular cornbread mixes, including Jiffy and Martha White, contain wheat flour. In fact, wheat flour is the first ingredient in Jiffy cornbread mix. Homemade cornbread recipes usually contain wheat flour, as well, often as much wheat flour as cornmeal. Of course, the cornbread served in restaurants often contains gluten, as well.

If you are allergic to gluten or are gluten intolerant or have celiac disease, you should never assume any cornbread is gluten free cornbread. Always check the ingredients.

Gluten Free Cornbread Mixes

There are a number of commercially available gluten free corn bread mixes, including Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Cornbread Mix, Orgran Gluten Free Authentic Cornbread and Muffin Mix, The Gluten-Free Pantry Yankee Cornbread Mix, and 123 Gluten Free Cornbread Mix. You may find these products at some grocery stores, but you may need to visit a local health food store or order them online, depending on where you live.

When buying gluten free corn bread mixes, always make sure to read the label carefully. If a product is labeled gluten free then it probably really is gluten free, but manufacturers can change the ingredients in a product at any time so an item that was gluten free last time you bought it may not be gluten free today. You can always call the product manufacturer if you have any questions about the ingredients.
