Green Chef wins top spot for gluten-free meal delivery, plus reviews of Epicured, Trifecta, and more.

For people with celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivity, following a gluten-free diet is key to preventing side effects. Other people without these concerns say they just feel better when they avoid eating gluten.

Whichever category you’re in, finding a gluten-free meal delivery service can be challenging. While a number of companies offer gluten-free options, most produce meals in facilities that also process gluten-containing foods, which increases the risk of cross-contamination.

Our writers, editors, and registered dietitians have tried nearly 30 meal delivery services. For this article, we vetted brands with the greatest variety of gluten-free options and prioritized those that take measures to reduce exposure to gluten in their meal preparations.

So, which meal delivery service is best for gluten-free eaters? Read on for our top picks.

There are many factors to keep in mind when selecting a meal delivery service, especially if you follow a gluten-free diet:

  • Certification: In particular, if you have celiac disease or another gluten-related condition, you can choose a service that is certified gluten-free or produces meals in a gluten-free facility to reduce the risk of cross-contamination.
  • Variety: You may want to check the menu for meal variety, including options that fit your tastes. Some services also offer options for other dietary needs, such as vegetarian and keto. This may be especially important if you have other dietary restrictions.
  • Ingredients: If you prefer organic food or meals free of artificial ingredients and preservatives, you’ll want to browse company websites for more information about the quality of ingredients used.
  • Prep time: Keep in mind that the amount of preparation required may vary. While some services deliver dishes that are ready to eat, others provide meal kits that often require 20–40 minutes to cook.
  • Cost: Along with the price of every meal, you’ll want to consider the total cost. That means accounting for factors such as shipping and other add-ons.

Gluten-free meal delivery may be an option if you’re following a gluten-free diet and looking for an easy and convenient way to save time on cooking and grocery store runs, with healthy meals delivered straight to your door.

Just keep in mind that if you have celiac disease or another gluten-related condition, some services’ gluten-free meals are prepared in facilities that also handle gluten-containing ingredients, so there is a risk for cross-contamination.

Green Chef is our pick for the best gluten-free meal delivery service because it’s certified as a Gluten-Free Safe Spot business by the Gluten Intolerance Group and offers a variety of fresh and flavorful meal kits suitable for a gluten-free diet.

Most of the meal delivery services included in this article also offer dairy-free meals.

For example, Daily Harvest offers meals that are entirely gluten-free and plant-based. Similarly, Trifecta Nutrition provides a meal plan that is vegan and gluten-free.

Though HelloFresh doesn’t have any specific gluten-free menus or meal plans, they do offer some recipes that can fit into a gluten-free diet.

However, keep in mind that meal kits are not prepared in a gluten-free facility, meaning that cross-contamination is possible.

There are a variety of Green Chef meals to choose from, many of which are gluten-free. However, note that it may depend on which meal kits you select, as some dishes do contain gluten.

If you have a gluten-related disorder, or simply prefer to avoid gluten, gluten-free meal kit delivery services make it easy to enjoy healthy meals delivered straight to your door.

When selecting a service, you may want to consider factors such as whether meals are certified gluten-free or produced in a gluten-free facility, as well as:

  • cost
  • ingredient quality
  • menu variety
  • required preparation time
