Gluten free in Palestine / Israel?

Has anyone out there any tips on how to maintain a strictly gluten free diet in Israel? I will be in a tour group and have alerted the organisation that I am travelling with that I have CD. We will be staying in mostly Palestinian run hotels eating breakfast and dinner there, but will have to fend for ourselves at lunchtime. Any helpful ideas anyone?

Hi there,

You definitely want to print off the card Mary has posted or keep a copy on your phone as it is a card in Hebrew stating your needs.

If you google gluten free Israel you will find lots of advice on cafe's and restaurants and here's an example:

My favourite food company is Eskal and they are based in Israel and here's a link to their products:

I love their gluten free chocolate wafers!

And here's a link to the Israeli coeliac association:

And have a great time.

Thank you for the card, Mary and for the links, Jerry. That's really helpful.

Print off an Arabic one also in case lunch is at a Palestine restaurant.

Choose the rice dish but avoid cooscoos and farina as they are made from wheat.
