For a new arrival in Jeddah, it is a bit of a challenge to find gluten free sources whilst traveling.
Over a period of 4 years, I have put together some sources that can help you find the specific
gluten-free resources you need in Jeddah, which I am happy to share. There will be 2 follow up
articles in the following months about ‘Gluten-free restaurants in Jeddah’ and ‘Gluten-alternatives in Jeddah’. Here are the gluten-free resources in Jeddah:

  1. Danube, Serafi Mall: has gluten-free flour, plain flour, coconut flour, corn tortilla,
    sunflower seed bread.

  3. Star market:   has Mung bean noodles and tofu.
  4. Asian stores (Sarawat Superstores. Koreana supermarket/restaurant in al Hamra/Berry
    Garden market in al Zahra) may sell  the following:

Note:

  • I would like to acknowledge some of the contributions made by some of the women
    from WhatsApp group “Real Food”, Jeddah.
  • Tip: If you see something unusual or unique in a shopping center – like gluten-free stuff,
    you might want to stock up, as they may not be available on your next visit.
  • Please do your own research about what kinds of foods are gluten-free.
