Has anyone had any luck getting wheat free/gluten free bread and pasta?

Also does anyone know if there is a Health Food shop anywhere - we are in Cabarete and had heard there might be one in Santiago.

I know that there is a GNC in the Capitol, but It doesn't sound like that is what you are looking for. If you are looking for gluten fee wheat pasta/ bread, good luck finding it.

In the future, remember to stock up on this sort of thing before you leave So. California or Greenwich Villiage to fly here; Southern California and Greenwich Villiage, .... the only 2 places I know of in the World where people seem to "suffer" in large concentrations from an intolerance to wheat. :tired:

There was a recent thread mentioning a health-food products aisle in Playero, IIRC. If not, try La Sirena in POP or Nacional in Santiago - they do sell these products.

A friend of mine has to have gluten free products. She went to Santiago yesterday and found many suitable items in National, including pasta I believe.

HA - well, it actually is an allergy. I'm currently being tested (or will be tested next week) for gluten allergy and it can make a person very miserable and constantly sick. So - don't mock! :)
