Are Idahoan Mashed Potatoes Gluten Free?

We get a lot of questions about whether Idahoan mashed potatoes are gluten free and the simple answer is YES!

But let’s back up.

Are Idaho® Potatoes Gluten Free?

Well, obviously if Idahoan products are gluten free, that would make potatoes gluten free! Gluten is a type of protein found in wheat, rye, barley, and other grains. Since potatoes are a vegetable, and not a grain, that inherently makes them gluten free.

This makes potatoes a great, and versatile, solution for anyone that has Celiac disease or just doesn’t tolerate gluten well.

5 Ways Idahoan Mashed Potatoes Fit in as Part of Gluten-Free Diet

1. The Obvious

Use Idahoan mashed potatoes right out of the package for an easy and convenient (not to mention delicious!) side dish.

Buttery Homestyle Mashed Potatoes are gluten free.

2. The Thickener

Instead of using flour to thicken gravies or sauces, use dry Idahoan mashed products. We recommend our Original line for its neutral flavor.
