Kraft just launched a gluten-free version of its iconic mac ‘n’ cheese
If you’re gluten-free and have been missing some of your favorite comfort foods since you eliminated them from your diet, we have some good news. A classic childhood (and adulthood!) favorite is now available in a gluten-free version for the first time ever: Kraft Macaroni & Cheese!
Kraft’s new Gluten Free Mac & Cheese is made with brown rice and corn pasta, but the company says it is just as smooth and cheesy as the original. Just like the original, it comes in a 6-ounce box with a packet of powdered cheese sauce. Each serving has 260 calories and six grams of protein. You can find it in select stores nationwide, including Target, for around $2.49 a box.
While this is the first time Kraft has made a gluten-free version of their macaroni and cheese, there are a few other brands you can find in stores nationwide as well.
The brand Banza has a variety of boxed flavors made with chickpea pasta and Annie’s has a handful of gluten-free macaroni and cheese flavors, including pasta made with quinoa and rice flour or red lentils.
While not technically boxed pasta, the brand Udi’s makes a frozen gluten-free macaroni and cheese, as does Amy’s, which is also dairy-free. The brand Evol also makes a few different kinds of frozen gluten-free macaroni and cheese, including smoked gouda.
You can also make your own gluten-free macaroni and cheese, as you can buy plain gluten-free macaroni from a variety of stores and online retailers like Amazon.
You can then follow any recipe you’d like, as long as the other ingredients are also gluten-free. This recipe from Mama Knows Gluten Free also calls for evaporated milk, powdered dry mustard and lots of cheese, including mild or sharp cheddar, parmesan and a block of Velveeta.
And in other gluten-free news, Oreos will be selling a gluten-free version of their iconic cookie starting in January 2021.
