The importance of B Vitamins and Iron

When eating on a gluten free diet, it is important that you take in the right amount of B Vitamins and Iron as a lot of these nutritional sources can go missing when you are cutting certain foods in your diet. Our online gluten free shop in Australia have listed the importance of these nutrients and in which foods you can find them in.

B Vitamins

Niacin, riboflavin, thiamine and folate are all the different types of B-Vitamins that are found in gluten containing grains. Therefore, if you are sticking to gluten free diet foods in Australia, it is necessary to find alternative sources for these vitamins. Examples include:

  • Thiamine: black beans, lentils and sunflower seeds
  • Riboflavin: Soy beans, green leafy vegetables, eggs, turkey and almonds
  • Niacin: Tuna, chicken, turkey, beef, lamb, prawns or salmon that would all work perfectly with Chang’s Wok Ready Noodles


Iron can be poorly absorbed by someone who has damage to their small intestines after gluten exposure. The best sources of iron for someone on a gluten free diet include red meats, the thigh or drumstick of chicken and turkey, as well as leafy green vegetables. We recommend you consume The Gluten Free Food Co Vegan Mac N Cheez with a side of the iron rich foods mentioned above.
