Turkey Question from Graham Voss - 13 January 2013
Q: We have booked an all inclusive holiday to stay at Side Star Beach Hotel in August 2013 and my 5 year old daughter has coeliacs disease which means that she requires a diet free from wheat and gluten.
I have been trying to find information online about food labelling and gluten free products which might be available in Turkey but have not had much success.
Just wondered if you could tell me which is the nearest supermarket to the hotel that sells gluten free products and also if you know where I would be able to buy gluten free products.
A: We have not managed to find concrete information on shops in that area but we did find this article which might be of use: http://www.glutenfreemrsd.com/2010/06/eating-gluten-free-in-turkey.html
Also, if you dont know it already, this site has useful info for celiacs on holiday: http://www.celiactravel.com/
