Gluten in German - put it in writing
If you are travelling to Germany with celiac disease, it's important that you have a plan for communicating your diet effectively. In the land of gluten-filled pretzels, breads and of course...beer, you need to be prepared. Nothing ruins an amazing trip like being "glutened". Here's a few lines to remember:
"Gluten Free" in German
We'd recommend going further and say "I cannot eat gluten."
I cannot eat gluten" in German
- "Ich kann kein Gluten essen"
However, if you really want to make sure they understand what foods are gluten-free, and be taken seriously, we recommend:
- "I have celiac disease and I cannot eat gluten. Gluten is in wheat, barley and rye. Is this food safe for me?"
This translation is lengthy and harder to remember, which is why we created professional German Gluten Free Translation Cards. They help take out some of the stress of communicating in Germany, while being taken seriously with a tactile plastic card.
