*Please note Beef-Less Ground Beef contains barley malt extract. We do not have celiac but rather wheat intolerance.
Barley malt extract is used to enhance flavors. Because it's used in very small quantities, the end product usually contains 20 parts per million (ppm) of gluten or less meaning it can be legally labelled gluten free. Depending on your level of intolerance, allergy or Celiac disease this may be unacceptable for your diet.

It’s one of the top ten cheapest grocery stores in America. Dave Ramsey; the budget expert’s team put together a list of the top most affordable grocery stores in America and Trader Joe’s made the cut.

Read The Trader Joe’s Memoir About How It All Started
Interested In how this all started. The New Yorker has a good write up of the memoir.
Does Trader Joe’s Have Seasonal Items And How To Tell Which Trader Joes Items Are Seasonal ?
Yes, Trader Joe’s gets new items all the time and a good portion are seasonal. Who missed pumpkin season? Meaning they will only be available for a short period of time.
Which really means how do I know when I need to pick up a few extra bags of my favorite new products lol. Simple, look at your receipt.
All seasonal item will have HOL (abb for Holiday before the item). Shad and I just recently learned this tip for an associate (see picture below)

MY GUY DID YOU SERIOUSLY JUST DO ALL THE THINKING FOR ME?? You're literally my favorite person right now I thought all, hope was lost when i cut out gluten on top of being vegan. Bookmarked ftw
Okay, you guys seriously ROCK!!! Thank you SO SO MUCH for taking the time to document and share all of this with us! I have been vegetarian for 34 years, but recently discovered that I am gluten AND DAIRY sensitive. Ugh! Having you there to guide me as I educate myself or RE-educate myself about what to eat, is such an immense help and comfort! Thank you so much!
Great to have this list- thank you! I wonder if you can help me ascertain whether Trader Joe’s frozen Blackbean & Corn Enchiladas are gluten free? They say Vegan and they USED TO also say gluten free but no longer do. I’ve asked a store worker but have not been able to find out why the labeling changed. Thanks!!
Nija Clark | The Vgn Way
We’ll definitely look for this the next time we are at Trader Joes and let you know what we find. We just picked up the Trader Joe’s Vegan Enchilada Casserole which is gluten-free too. Only allergen is coconut.
So many things at Trader Joe’s have now switched to either be labeled made in a facility with wheat, or are no longer marked gluten free. It makes me so sad, I’ve been watching it happen all summer:-(
Nija Clark | The Vgn Way
Agreed, we are actually writing an email to ask them about this and will post when/if we get a reply.
where is the pdf?
