About Us

Gluten Free Goodness is an online super store that was founded & established in 2014 after my eldest daughter Charlotte, was diagnosed with Coeliac Disease. At the tender age of 6 food is everything! So I went on the hunt to find wholesome, delicious gluten free food from across Australia and Overseas.

Gluten Free Goodness is the best place to buy gluten free online, all the products have been listed into categories making it easier for you to find all your delicious and loved products! Our on-line gluten free store also stocks products that are wheat free, dairy free, egg free, fructose friendly, vegan & vegetarian options, FODMAP, paleo & nut free products. We sell a range of products made right here in Australia like Orgran, Leda, Well & Good, Noosa Basics & a range of imported products such as Bob’s Red Mill, Schar and Nature’s Path.

We ship to anywhere in Australia and use a variety of Courier Teams & Australia Post to ship our goods, we also accept P.O.Boxes & Parcel Lockers for your added convenience 🙂

We have a large list of suppliers, so if there is a product you would like to see please let us know via our contact page & we will endeavour to get it on board. As I run the business from my residence, it is impossible to stock large quantities of every single item but I am very fortunate to be able to purchase stock quite quickly & ship it out to our fabulous customers generally within 48 hours! There is a delay on a few products as delivery to my area is only on a Thursday. Cut off times for items from the following ranges Orgran, Leda, Yes You Can & Well & Good have a cut off of Wednesday 11am. These items are delivered to me Thursdays & I have minimal stock of each item on hand as they’re quiet bulky products. Everything else has the standard 48 hours prior to delivery 🙂 I understand that some customers need their products rather quickly so if that’s the case it’s best you shoot me an email to [email protected]  prior to your order to avoid disappointment. I appreciate your understanding and as we continue to grow this circumstance may change 🙂

Coeliac Disease…What you need to know

Coeliac disease affects people of all ages, both male and female. There are 4 family members in our family with coeliac disease – Charlotte, Myself (Laura), My Mum (Jen), My Aunt (Jean)

You must be born with the genetic predisposition to develop coeliac disease. The most important genes associated with susceptibility to coeliac disease are HLA DQ2 and HLA DQ8. Either one or both of these genes are present in the majority of people with coeliac disease. While 30% of the population carry one or both of these genes, only 1 in 30 of these people (approximately) will get coeliac disease.

A first degree relative (parent, sibling, child) of someone with coeliac disease has about a 10% chance of also having the disease. If one identical twin has coeliac disease there is an approximate 70% chance that the other twin will also have coeliac disease (but may not necessarily be diagnosed at the same time).

Environmental factors play an important role in triggering coeliac disease in infancy, childhood or later in life.

People with coeliac disease remain sensitive to gluten throughout their life, so in this sense they are never cured. However, a strict gluten free diet does allow the condition to be managed effectively.

A strict, lifelong Gluten Free Diet is currently the only recognised medical treatment for coeliac disease. By removing the cause of the disease, a gluten free diet allows the small bowel lining to heal and symptoms to resolve. As long as the gluten free diet is strictly adhered to, problems arising from coeliac disease should not return. Relapse occurs if gluten is reintroduced into the diet.

The long term consequences of untreated coeliac disease are related to chronic systemic inflammation, poor nutrition and malabsorption of nutrients.

Fortunately, timely diagnosis of coeliac disease and treatment with a gluten free diet can prevent or reverse many of the associated health conditions.
