Medical question - wheat allergy
I have a friend who is coming to Turkey on holiday but she has a wheat allergy.
I have tried to find the Turkish language expression for: 'Gluten Free' so that she can eat safely, but I've had no luck so far. Can anyone help please?

Re: Medical question

I'm pretty sure this has been asked by someone before and a lot of helpful replies were made. I will have a look round for you, try the "search" function or I'm sure some clever bod will be on here to help shortly.

Re: Medical question

Hi Bexxy.
Thanks for that. I didn't get the 'gluten free' part but all of the wheat info will help.

Hi Ray,

We printed out a few copies of the Turkish version of the gluten-free card and brought them with us on our last trip to Turkey. They were a godsend when we went to restaurants. A word of warning, though, avoid corn bread and gravy unless you are sure they haven't used a wheat based raising agent or thickener.

If you want to go to the bother of baking/cooking, the big supermarkets sell "glutensiz" flour and pasta. We brought some cornflour and bisto from home because we needed to be sure that it hadn't been cross-contaminated.

Hi Maria,
Any chance of getting hold of a copy of the Turkish version of the gluten-free card?
Nice to know about the glutensiz flour and pasta...thanks.

Ray,
You can print them out. Here's the link to the website that Tykatem kindly posted on the thread that Bexxy directed you to.

P.S. Should have told you that I haven't seen any Glutenfree biscuits or buns in the supermarkets, so better stock some if your friend has a sweet tooth. We brought some Glutenfree bread with us last time cos you need something to mop up the runny egg at breakfast.
