Looking For Gluten-free Restaurants Etc. In Ireland And Denmark
0

7 posts in this topic

Well, my sister and I have decided to go to Ireland and maybe fly over to Copenhagen Denmark for a few days in September, So if anyone has been to these places or knows if they have a Celiac Association that I can contact and get information. My sister is fine but I need to find stuff for me.

I have decided to make some dehydrated fruit and chicken jerky to take with me.

Rusla, I found this for you for Denmark:

http://www.coeliaki.dk/default.asp?Action=...ls&Item=783

There's a restaurant text and a list of shops, and a list of relevant words in English-Danish, etc.

If you need a translation of something on the site, just ask, I can read danish reasonably well (it's close enough to swedish).

I really like Copenhagen, and Danish people are very friendly...well worth a visit. :)

Rusia,

If you are in Dublin, try Cornucopia (amazing restaurant) on Wicklow Street and Cafe Fresh at Powerscourt. Both are in easy walking distance if you are in Dublin City Center and have lots of gluten-free options.

Just a couple of doors down from Cornucopia is Nourish, a great health food store that sells gluten free foods. Check out their other locations at: http://www.nourishonline.ie/healthshop/Main/Stores.htm

There's a chemist (i.e pharmacy) near McDonald's on Grafton Street that also has gluten-free foods. (also close to Nourish)

Try the Mrs Crumpets cookies - they are amazing and gluten-free and are for sale in lots of places there.

I was pleasently surprised by the availability of gluten free food in Ireland. A lot of the big supermarkets also have a gluten free section. Some small restuarants I ate at had homemade gluten-free bread. There's more awareness in Ireland than in the US.

A word of warning though - the labeling laws are a little different, so read ingredients. I picked up a bag of potato chips - the label said suitable for coelics (i.e. celiacs), but there was wheat listed in the ingredients. I didn't eat them.

Enjoy your trip. You will LOVE Ireland.

Yep, "suitable for coeliacs" is usually a red flag for me. Ironic...

Thanks! This sounds great. I have emailed the Irish Coeliac Association in hopes they can also send me a list. Everyone I have talked to who has been to Ireland has said the same as you have. I am so excited.

Thanks Paulina,

Sad, Danish is my heritage and I can't read or speak it and that is one of the reasons we would like to go there for a couple of days. We have relatives we have never seen over there that i one reason we would like to go there and the other is because we have never been there.

i just got back from dublin and belfast. both northern ireland and the republic have coeliac societies just look it up on google (like 'coeliac' and 'ireland'). in dublin, in temple bar there's a great restaurant called 'fitzer's' and their menu is clearly labelled. there's also a placed called 'FXB' like a steak place near the river, they are really good with coeliac too.

in belfast, by city hall, there's a restaurant called 'ten square grill'. it won an award for being the best restaurant in ireland! and they are very helpful with coeliac and the food/atmosphere is great.

when i was in ireland another time traveling all over i got a list of gluten-free restaurants from the coeliac society and that was really helpful if you're going to be all over. but also don't be afraid to just ask any restaurant - it's fairly well known there! enjoy!!

    • Here is another point.  My hubby went gluten-free per the poor advice of his GP and my allergist.  It worked.  A tough first year, but he got well.  Thirteen years later, I got diagnosed with celiac disease.  I was shocked!  😱.   Does he have celiac disease?  We will never know because we can not afford to have him do a challenge.  He refuses and I can not blame him.  He knows he will be very sick!   The point?  I am so lucky that we both can not have gluten.  I never worry about him making me sick or vice versa. We made the house completely gluten free for  1) our health and 2) the fact that our kid started helping in the kitchen. Kids make mistakes and I personally need a safe haven.  She wants gluten?  I buy prepackaged stuff and she takes it to school.  All parties and events at my house are gluten free.  Lots of work, but we stay healthy.  She does not have celiac disease.  When she is preparing for a celiac test,  I send her on the porch to eat cookies or bread or whatever floats her boat.  We travel in a gluten-free RV.  I have five sizes of ice chests.  We just have to be prepared for any event.   How can we live this way?   We love feeling good.
    • Freize is right, you need to think about your environment.   Based on that a study I posted for you, you will note that the patients who were diagnosed with refractory celiac disease and THOUGHT they were diet compliant found that they WERE NOT diet compliant.  How is this possible?   This is way out there, but unless you are growing all your own food, you don't really know if it is gluten free.  In the US, we do have laws to help protect our food supplies (no perfect, but a start).    I can not speak for India.  For example, what about your soy?  It can be contaminated by the farmer as it is often rotated with wheat.  Here is an article by Jane Anderson who has celiac disease.  She is very strict as she has DH (celiac rash), but she cites Trisha Thompson who tests foods for gluton contamination, The gluten-free WatchDog (like Consumer reports).  She found that soy which is naturally gluten free, but can be cross contaminated by wheat: https://www.verywell.com/is-soy-gluten-free-562371 so, start thinking about your food supply. As far as a negative TTG IGA or TTG IGG?  I test negative to both.  Only the DGP IGA has ever been elevated in my blood tests (even repeats), yet I had a Marsh Stage IIIIB on my biopsy.  Have you had a DGP IGG?  (I do not see this in your posting).   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ These additonal celiac tests might help you feel confident that you have celiac disease and not something else that is damaging your villi.  But remember, some  folks have celiac disease even with negative blood.  I am not IGA deficient, so this is an area I have not researched.  Not to mention that some celiac researchers do not think that the celiac  antibodies tests are good for diet compliancy.   I wish I had better answers for you.  Try a grain free, whole foods diet of meats, fish, eggs, and vegetables for a while.  All food prepared by you. Who cooks your food now?  Is your home gluten free?  Cross contamination at home?  Kissing a loved one.  We had a doctor with celiac disease who was getting glutened by her little children who were consuming gluten!  
    • I won't say I will never eat out but I can't see me eating out for the foreseeable future. Even then, I will most likely only eat at a dedicated gluten free place. I am extremely sensitive to the tiniest amount of gluten and it's just not worth the risk to me. Eating out is playing Russian Roulette as far as I'm concerned and I'm not ready to play that game yet.
    • You are right. The weirdest part is that I feel fine, however, I am sure cross-contamination is doing damage even when we don't think it is.
