Eating in Barcelona not a problem for coeliacsby Mariangela Celiberti - 2015.12.02
In Barcelona coeliacs will no longer be discriminated against if they want to eat out: the council has created a gluten-free restaurant guide especially for them. Born with the cooperation of the union of restaurateurs and approved by the Coeliac Association of Catalonia, it includes 41 places including Italian, Japanese, traditional food, sandwich bars, brasseries and fast food. The president of the association, Olga Cuesta, stressed that, thanks to this guide, you can be sure to find a team that knows and applies the food safety standards established by the association in the kitchen and in the dining room. The certification lasts one year and is renewable, if they pass the regular checks. According to their estimates, 75,000 families in Catalonia have a celiac member and about 2,000 cases have been diagnosed in Barcelona.
