Travel Gluten Free in Spain

GF Spain 1When thinking about traveling to Spain gluten free and allergy free, I immediately smile as I fondly remember exploring the food and culture across this country numerous times.

I found many safe and delicious restaurant dishes both in restaurants offering gluten free menus recommended by FACE – Federación de Asociaciones de Celíacos de España as well as in ethnic restaurants using my iEatOut Apple app and gluten free dining cards.

GF Spain 2In addition, I discovered ‘jamon Iberico’ which is very delicious cured ham from the Iberian Peninsula and highly recommended! Also, if you want to try authentic gazpacho, some recipes call for wheat flour while other ones do not so be sure to double check the ingredients to make sure it is safe for you to eat!

GF Spain 3Also, much to my comfort, I found the incredible grocery store chain or “supermercado – El Corte Ingles” in Madrid that had multiple aisles of gluten free and allergy friendly food products. In addition, I was surprised to even discover delicious gluten free and dairy free croissants, bread and rolls from ProCeli in Barcelona!

I hope the following tips help to ensure your safe gluten free and allergy free travel throughout Spain and remember to have a glass of tasty Rioja wine for me too!

I am thrilled with the growing number of gluten free beer options that are currently available around the world. Especially considering since I had the very “tough” job of being the North American representative for the world’s first gluten-free beer festival in Chesterfield, UK a few years ago! It’s great to see the wide range of gluten free beer available that now includes lagers, pils, pale ales, blond ales and amber ales from Australia, Canada, Europe and the U.S.

Taste testing the local gluten free beer during my travels is one of my top priorities – in addition to checking out the local gluten free / dairy free bakeries, food products and restaurants of course!

For more details about the specific ingredients and brewing process, visit the respective brewery websites. Here’s to enjoying gluten free beer with your friends and family while at home and during your travels anywhere across the globe! Read more
