If you have Celiac Disease or are gluten intolerant, Stockholm is a good place to study abroad, with gluten-free produce available in most large supermarkets and some special bakeries.
Some supermarket chains such as ICA, Coop, and Hemköp have a larger choice of gluten-free products than others. Keep in mind that gluten-free products may be shelved alongside regular versions of the same item or in just one gluten free section. This varies from store to store. If you do not find what you’re looking for, try another location in the city as stock varies between supermarkets. Don’t be afraid to speak to a store manager, who may be able to order more gluten free products for your local supermarket.
