Travel Gluten Free in Spain
When 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.
In 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!
Also, 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!
