Gluten-Free in Poland

My internet friend Josh Schieffer, founder of and The G Freek Show, recently went to Poland for business and to run the Warsaw Marathon. Although nervous at first, he not only made his gluten-free way through Poland but he also intereviewed the Polish Celiac Society. As someone that recently traveled to Eastern Europe, I can understand Josh’s hesitation about traveling to a previously communist country. The fear of going hungry or even worse, getting glutened, is scary when it comes to travel. You are out of your comfort zone, you do not speak the language, and you don’t know what to do. If you do your homework and you prepare for your trip, you will have a much happier and safer trip.

In this episode of The G Freek Show, Josh discusses differences in celiac support groups in European countries, “gluten-free wheat flour”, European gluten-free labeling laws, and popular gluten-free brands in Poland and the United States.
