Gluten Free In Australia
0

2 posts in this topic

Hi Guys

I'm moving to Australia next week and i would love to know if anyone has been or maybe lives there, do they have any information about products or gluten-free Restaurants I can eat in?? I am going to Perth first for 5/6 months then i will travel so any information is greatly accepted.

I have checked out celiac society of Australia and each region had its own costs which are very pricey at 110 dollars for membership.

Hi Michelle,

Where abouts in Australia are you moving to? You should have no trouble finding gluten free foods in Australia. Most supermarkets have a health food section with plenty of gluten free options. Also there are many products throughout the supermarket that are labelled gluten free and many that are gluten free by ingredient. In Australia the law states that any allergy causing ingredient much be listed on the label therefore once you work out how to read labels it is very easy to tell if a product is gluten free or not. An example of this is if you pick up a yoghurt and it says thickeners but does not state what type it will be gluten free as if it did have wheat it would have to be stated on the label.

As far as restaurants goes awareness of gluten free is very good in Australia. Many restaurants and cafes indicate on the menu the items that are gluten free. Where I live in the suburbs of Melbourne I can choose from gluten free pizza, gluten-free fish and chips, gluten-free charcoal chicken, Indian, Thai, Italian all within a five minute drive so you have no problem. Even small towns often have gluten free options available.

If you have any more questions please don't hesitate to ask. :)
