Are gluten free Oreos healthier than regular?
While there is a common misconception that gluten-free foods are healthier, these cookies have the same nutritional values as their gluten-y counterparts. A serving of a normal stuffed Gluten-free Oreos – three cookies – contains 160 calories, 7 grams of fat, 25 grams of carbs and 14 grams of sugar.
Gluten-free does not necessarily mean healthy because all gluten-free foods are not equally nutritious. “An apple and a gluten-free sugar cookie are both gluten-free, but their nutrients vary drastically,” DiGeronimo says. Grocery and health food stores are full of gluten-free cakes, cookies and sweet treats.
What’s different about gluten free Oreos?
Perhaps it’s a matter of preference, but the squishy, gluten-free filling was more enjoyable to lick. I didn’t expect the gluten-free Oreo filling to be any different than the standard Oreo filling, but as it turns out, the cream is easily the biggest difference between the two cookies.
Are gluten free Oreos bad for you?
“It depends,” says Amanda Beaver, RDN, a wellness dietitian with Houston Methodist Wellness Services. “If you have celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivity, these are a better choice. But for everyone else, it is likely not. It is not automatically healthier for you just because it does not contain gluten.”

Gluten-free doesn’t mean guilt-free
“In some cases, the gluten-free has more calories because you are adding more sugar,” says Bonci. If people substitute something like potato starch or tapioca instead flour, they might be eating more calories, not less. “It won’t translate to weight loss,” says Bonci.
Does gluten-free have less carbs?
Just because your diet excludes gluten-containing grains doesn’t mean that you are necessarily eating fewer carbohydrates. Switching to a gluten-free diet might lead to some weight loss, but this is likely due to an overall limitation of calories and not because gluten is harmful or fattening.
