The best way to check if a product contains gluten is to look at the label, many brands do print a list of allergens including gluten on the back of their packaging and many others also carry the crossed grain logo as below which means the product is suitable for coeliacs.

But beware, there is still a lot of products on the market which do not adhere to such specific packaging. If in doubt, research it. You can sign up for a fee to Coeliac UK and upon registration you will be sent a comprehensive mini handbag size food and drink directory which lists thousands of suitable foods, with hundreds of manufacturer lists including supermarkets. If you don't want to to sign up for membership the guide costs £10 and is renewed yearly with updates available online. It is especially useful if you come across a product which isn't labelled very well or does not specify allergens, the directory will most likely list this phantom food.
