Gluten Free in Argentina

For someone on a gluten free diet, travel in Argentina is a delight. Not only are the staple foods celiac-friendly, but all products list whether or not they contain gluten. This includes; candy, spices, ice cream, yogurt, beverages, condiments, ect. Its also widely understood when you say “soy celiaco/a” (I´m a celiac) or “sin trigo” (without wheat).

Grocery stores don’t seem to carry much, but dieteticos, which are Argentinian health food stores carry a variety of goods. The bigger cities have a wider variety of GF products but most carried some kind of cookies and pasta. The best store I discovered was Dietitico Viamonte in Buenos Aires which carried many kinds of GF bread, cookies, crackers, pasta, cereal, and even empanadas!
