Glutenfree Shopping

8 typical dutch glutenfree snacks you should try!

By  | 


Visiting a country is not only about sightseeing
but also about culture. Part of the culture is of course the food! The dutch
cuisine is not very famous, but some Dutch
glutenfree delights you definitely have to try.
1.  Haring


Glutenvrij Haring
      Absolutely my favorite is the raw herring. It’s served on a typical Dutch way
with unions and pickle. How to eat it? Just take the fish with your fingers by
the tail and eat it! It can be served with bread as well. So ask for a herring
without bread and make sure they use clean cutlery. Yum Yum!
     2. Drop

A typical Dutch candy is drop. This product is
originally not glutenfree but when you walk in to the Albert Heijn supermarket
and buy any suikervrije (sugarfree) drop, they are glutenfree. This candy is
delicious and moreover works when you have a sore throat.

3. Stroopwafels
   This is a typical dutch cookie. Unfortunately not glutenfree, but you can find
   them gluten-free in the supermarket chain Ekoplaza from the brand Lieke is vrij.
See the picture.

in the Berenstraat offers glutenfree pancakes. They are always on the menu, so
just walk in!

5. Patat.

The typical dutch fries are one of my favorites. My
favorite place to get my portion patat is located in the Heisteeg. They have glutenfree
mayonnaise available as a topping as well!

6. Cheese

What is a visit to the Netherlands without eating
cheese? This delicious dutch food is glutenfree! There are several shops in
Amsterdam where you can try and buy cheese. Try the Old Amsterdam, one of my

gluten free cheese

7. Stamppotje

A typical Dutch meal is a stamppotje. This is
mashad patatos with some mashed vegetables. A shop called Stamppotje
is located on different spots in the city and sells freshly made portions of
different sorts of traditional Dutch ‘stamppot’. Don’t get any gavy with it
because this is mostly not glutenfree.

8. Bitterkoekjes
In the supermarket you find cookies
called bitterkoekjes. They are made from almonds, sugar and eggs. To be honest,
they are available in Italy as well.  So
it’s not only typical dutch, but a natural glutenfree cookie is absolute worth
a try.
