Coeliac App

Following a gluten-free diet can be problematic and complicated. A new app, 'Gluten-free on the Move' , from Coeliac UK may help.

The app includes directory access to nearly 10,000 products suitable for a gluten-free diet and allows users to scan items as they shop to see if they are listed. The app's Venue Guide finds local venues serving gluten-free food.

Anyone can download[more] the app and look at the free services which include: Label Guide to help understand food labelling, Gluten-free Checklist, Eating Out Tips and latest news from Coeliac UK. Membership, at £20 per year, is needed to access the Food and Drink Directory and Venue Guide. In addition Members receive a hard copy of the directory; Crossed Grain Magazine issued three times a year; and access to the charity's expert helpline.
