Gardenburger Flame Grilled Burger no longer Gluten-Free?

This just in…

I have heard from a reliable source that Gardenburger is changing the formula of their Flame-Grilled Burger to no longer be gluten-free! Since they HAD the best gluten-free veggie burger on the market, I’m terribly disappointed, and have emailed them a protest letter to that effect. If you also don’t want to lose a gluten-free burger option- please take the time to contact the company by phone or email and tell them how much you care! I can’t believe that another of my favorite products is going the way of the Boca Burger. *sigh.* I’m so depressed.

Update: It seems that the current line from Gardenburger is that only the formula for their Flame Grilled Burger has changed. Black bean chipotle and their breakfast sausage are currently both gluten-free, so make sure to keep buying these products- we want Gardenburger to see our purchasing dollars in action! When the sales of the flame grilled burger go down and their remaining gluten-free products go up, maybe they’ll notice. *Thank you to Tee for this update data*

Looking for a substitute? Checkout this roundup I did of Gluten-Free Veggie Burger Options. The Gardenburger info is outdated, but I will adjust once I know the full story. Hope this helps!

  1. Say it isn’t so! I love GradenBurgers. In fact, I spent some time on Sunday making my own Garden Burgers because I couldn’t find any at the store. (I know, Sea… you’re shocked that I eat veggie burgers. LOL)

    :) Thanks for posting this.

  2. Major bummer! I’ve heard (but have not yet tried) Amy’s GF veggie burgers, perhaps these will be a consolation replacement?

  3. Sea, how awful! And the worst thing about it is that I didn’t even know GardenBurger sold any GF burgers. I used to live on Amy’s burgers and was so disappointed when I found out I had DH because they all contain bulgur (I just checked Amy’s website–they don’t list any burgers as being GF). Thanks for the tip, and I’ll be calling.

  4. Kara- Amy’s has a relatively new gluten-free burger called “bistro burger.” It’s not as good as Gardenburger WAS, but it’s edible. Here’s the link:

  5. veggiburger makes two burgers gluten free…original and protabella mushroom…I found them at my local Publix grocery store. My kids ate them and liked them..they are pretty good but I really like Sunshine burgers especially the barbecue and southwestern.

  6. i love gardenburger sausages! We go through a box a week around here. I like sunshine burgers the best, but for grilling, the gardenburger flame grilled were tops. I have written them a letter at their website. We definitely need to flood them with letters.

  9. I warned you all 3 months ago in this post on celiac.com when I learned that Gardenburger was being gobbled up by kelloggs that we needed to get our voices heard!!!!

    At first it looked like they were going to keep this formula…but basically no one cares…I cannot tell you how many times I have told people how difficult it is to find meat analogs if you are GF, and they tell me “You may need to start eating meat” It pees me off that in this day and age when GF is being recommended for many more populations other than Celiac (Autism, Downs, MS) that the big companies have become less GF friendly rather than more!

    Good Luck all!

    Love & Light,

  10. PS I just got off the phone with the company…they said the black bean chipotle are the same and so are the breakfast sausage..”We have ONLY “reformulated” our burger” (For now I am sure!) Like they don’t have enough gluten burgers they couldn’t keep that one.

    Love & Light,

    Tee
