Gluten-free snacks heaven... Germany!

Germany is truly a gluten-free snack heaven! They sell Italian brand Schär, one of my favourite gluten-free snack brand, everywhere!

Look for "Reformhaus", or other "Bio-markt", "Bioladen", "Naturkostladen", etc. and you won't be disappointed.

Super thanks to sf my travel buddy for pointing out all the bio shops wherever we go, and shopped with me! I'm snacking on my findings from Germany at the very moment =)

The Reformhaus in/near Viktualienmarkt in Munich has the widest collection I've ever seen!

Thx sf for spotting Denn's biomarkt in [Bamberg??].

Detailed reviews will be posted later =)


    The Tarahumara Indians are an ancient tribe of super athletes that live in the Copper Canyon. Tarahumaran Indian Cirildo Chacarito showed up to a 100 mile Ultra Marathon over 30 minutes late. Cirildo wore his native garb including Hurache Sandals made from the tread of a tire and leather straps. He looked completely out of place amidst these world class Ultra Marathoners.
    The unlikely contender won the race 37 minutes ahead of the 2nd place finisher. To top it off, Cirildo was 52 years old!
    The Media swarmed around Cirildo and asked how he could run such an amazing race. Cirildo said it was the chia seed that gave him all his strength and endurance.

  2. Gluten-free products are also available at chains like DM, REWE, Real and Lidl. Lidl, specifically, has many of its own brands labelled gluten-free. There are several types of sauseges, salami, salad dressings, etc. Real and REWE are also doing this. The selection of gluten-free foods in Germany is rapidly increasing.

    DM is a convenience store, selling a wide variety of products, and it´s not the most obvious place to go for food. But they do carry a good selection of gluten-free items, from snacks to pasta, mostly from Dr. Schaer, which is one of my favorite brands.

    Anyone planning a longer stay in Germany might find it useful to get the booklet listing gluten-free products sold in Germany issued by the DZG, the German association of celiacs. Their website is this: It´s useful because many products are gluten-free, though that is not openly indicated on the package. They also indicate which medicines, toothpastes, etc. are gluten-free.

    You can contact the DZG in English as well.
