Planning your next gluten free travelling adventure? Getting in touch with the local Celiac Association may be a good start. If anyone knows anything about how they ‘do gluten free’ wherever you’re going then it’s likely to be the country’s local Celiac Association. Most of them have information on what kind of gluten free labelling legislation the country has, a list of safe products and advice on how to shop and eat out in that country. Some associations do of course provide better and more in depth information than others but all of them will provide at least some idea of what’s it’s going to be like travelling to that country as a coeliac. A few of them have certainly helped me out on various trips. I hope they are of use to you too. I’ve added a little ‘don’t miss’ for the countries I’ve visited personally 😀
