Gluten Free Foods

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
When we lived in the Ramstien area before we did not have to worry about such things. I am gotten so used to finding what I need where I am I don't want to assume that ease when I get back next month. I am sure on base as a bit but wanted to know about off base options. Are there any stores off base in the Kaiserslautern area that are natural foods stores with gluten and dairy free offerings?

Reformhaus and Naturkostladen which usually have a selection of gluten and dairy free, in addition to organic foods, natural beauty products and supplements.

Here are some links. I miss the lovely German Naturkostladen!

Also, if you are interested in having an organic fruit and vegetable (and other organic foods)box - delivered the Martinshof Biobus is great! You can sign up for an Abokiste, and add other products to it if you like.

My husband's been getting these really tasty gluten-free spelt (Dinkel) Brötchen at dm market. They are sold in packs of four and not baked, so you have to bake them in the oven for a few minutes first. They're also organic. I don't know if you have dm markets there, but if you do they also have lots of good organic food, maybe more gluten-free food too.

dm Drogerien also usually have a few items, pretty expensive but I think it's one brand that is also available at Alnatura Biosupermärkte. It's items like breads, cookies, some pastas.

YES! I'm looking at the bag now and it's called "Ciabatta Rustica", in a yellow bag, brand name is Schär. Laktosefrei!! I see they have a website: http://www.schaer.com/en/ and it looks like the whole company is all about gluten-free products.

I just thought of something else: if you can't find those specific Dinkel / spelt products, most German bakeries carry some kind of Dinkel Brot...although often it's mixed with wheat (as with rye/ Roggen, which is also gluten-free), even what's called "Dinkel Pur" can still have up to 20% wheat, so be careful and just make sure there's no wheat at all. You should be able to find either 100% Roggen /rye or 100% spelt /Dinkel bread at regular bakeries or at least in Biomarkt bakeries or Reformhaus. You can also just ask at any Biomarkt or Reformhaus to see gluten-free products, because its definitely a sought-after thing here too!

I think Schär is the company available at dm. Also, frei von... products specifically list what they contain and what not on the cover (saw it at Alnatura today).

I am so glad to hear this!!! I was sure that others followed this diet there just didn't know how easy it was to find.

What do I need to look for for Gluten free? Dinkel? Ist das Gluten?

I am so rusty in my german I can't wait to get it all back!
