More than just a fad diet, eating gluten free is in fact vital to individuals suffering from a condition called coeliac disease. A lifelong autoimmune disease in which the small intestine reacts with hypersensitivity to gluten, this reaction leads to difficulty in digesting food.

With an increasing demand for nutrition friendly retreats offering gluten free cuisine we share our top 5 gluten free healthy foodie holidays, opening the doors even wider to a world of gastronomic globetrotters.
