Dietary explanation

Jag är glutenintolerant

Det innebär att jag inte tål att äta eller dricka något som innehåller vete, råg, korn och havre.
Till exempel mjöl, gryn, bröd, pasta, pizza, ströbröd, såsredning och panering.
Det är viktigt att det jag äter och dricker är fritt från vete, råg, korn och havre så att jag inte blir sjuk.
Tack för er hjälp.


Where to buy gluten-free food

Gluten-free food can be bought in all the major grocery stores (ICA, COOP, Willy’s, Konsum etc.).

There will be a special shelf where all the gluten-free food are, sometimes they’re marked with the text “glutenfritt”
Sometimes they have one shelf and a freezer for the frozen products somewhere else.
The selection is very good. You can find everything from muffins to pasta to pizza these days.
Most of the products that are gluten-free have the crossed grain symbol on them, but there is one brand that has gluten-free products without having the crossed grain symbol on their products, that brand is named ICA and instead they have a text on their products saying “fri från gluten”.

Other information

Coeliac Disease is pretty well known in Sweden. But most people know it as Gluten Allergy.
Ask at restaurants if you are unsure about if the food contains gluten. Often they will check with the chef.
The chefs learn in cooking school what Coeliac Disease is, so they will know.
