The information in this guide may be affected by covid-19.
The gluten-free trend has exploded in Stockholm over the past few years. Finding gluten-free options at restaurants, cafés and bakeries is no longer a problem - perfect for anyone with a gluten allergy, intolerance, or who chooses to avoid gluten for other health reasons. While gluten-free used to be associated with boring, dry breads and other foods, the selection of non-gluten items now includes plenty of delicious alternatives, including gluten-free pizza and pasta. To help you find the best spots, we've created this guide to gluten-free Stockholm.
If you have coeliac disease it's important to bear in mind that gluten-free products can contain a maximum of 20mg/kg of gluten.
