Are Spaghetti Noodles Gluten-Free?
Traditional spaghetti is made from wheat flour, so it is NOT gluten-free. Thankfully, there are more gluten-free spaghetti brands available these days than ever before, so it’s easy to find gluten-free spaghetti at the grocery store.
Gluten-free spaghetti can be made from all kinds of gluten-free alternatives: corn, white rice, brown rice, lentils, chickpeas, quinoa, cauliflower, peas, almonds, cassava, beans, and more!

which gluten-free spaghetti noodles are the best?
Every family will have their own preference, but after almost a decade of eating gluten-free, here are our top picks for gluten-free spaghetti:
Best Overall: Jovial Brown Rice Spaghetti
After almost a decade of eating gluten-free, Jovial Brown Rice Spaghetti is consistently our favorite. It’s got a texture most similar to traditional pasta, is relatively inexpensive, and has a neutral flavor that won’t overpower the flavor of the sauce. It’s becoming ever more widely available, so I can pick it up at Kroger, Sprouts, Natural Grocers, Whole Foods, Amazon, Thrive Market, and more.
Best Fresh Gluten-Free Spaghetti: Capello’s Almond Flour Spaghetti
This fresh pasta has a lovely homemade taste and texture, so if you’re looking for fresh pasta, this is a lovely option. The only real downsides for me are that it’s not shelf-stable (so it’s tougher to keep on hand), and it’s definitely expensive. At $9-11 per box, it’s one of the priciest of the bunch!
Best Bean Or Lentil Spaghetti: Banza Chickpea Spaghetti
Banza spaghetti consistently comes up as a high protein recommendation. It has a pretty decent texture (if a touch more dense), but I can definitely taste the bean flavor without sauce. If you’ve got little ones who are particular, this one may not pass the kid test. But if you’re counting macros, or eat a plant-based diet, this can be a great way to squeeze in some extra protein and fiber on pasta night!
Best Budget Friendly Gluten-Free Spaghetti
Barilla Corn Spaghetti is probably the most budget-friendly option out there. If money’s tight (I get it! Gluten-Free foods always feel more expensive!), Barilla can be a great way to go. It’s also one of the more widely available options out there, so it can be easier to find.
FAQ + Tips For Buying gluten-free spaghetti:
Is Gluten-Free Spaghetti Healthy? Like traditional pasta, some brands are healthier than others. Corn and white rice-based pastas won’t bring much protein or fiber to the table. Brown rice and quinoa-based pastas have a decent amount of protein and fiber, and lentil and bean-based pastas can pack lots of each into a serving.
What Kind Of Gluten-Free Spaghetti Is The Most Like Regular Spaghetti? Texturally, I find brown rice spaghetti to taste the most similar to traditional spaghetti.
What Is Gluten-Free Pasta Made Out Of? Since it doesn’t rely on wheat flour, gluten-free spaghetti can be made from all kinds of things! Common ingredients are corn, rice, brown rice, lentils, chickpeas, beans, cassava, peas, and quinoa.
Where’s The Best Place To Buy Gluten-Free Pasta? Honestly, the best deal for many brands is to stock up or buy in bulk. I love Thrive Market for stocking up on my gluten-free pantry staples. Amazon can be another good option!
