Default Gluten free?

My hubby seams to have developed an alergy to foods containing wheat. Does anyone know where Gluten free products can be purchased, especially some sort of breakfast cereal?

Default Gluten-free at Eroski on-line

Eroski online have a number of gluten-free products (although I couldn't find any gluten-free cereals when I had a brief look) -
EROSKI / online: Tu supermercado en Internet

Change language (see 'Cambiar idioma') to 'English'

Enter '07470' [post code] in the third box (Visitar la tienda / Visit the store)

Next page select 'visit store'


Once you're in the on-line store there is a key word of 'Gluten-free Food' on top of the page.
When you select this you get a side bar with different key words (e.g. Breakfast)

Welcome to the forum Sandrad and thanks for your suggestion. He has found cornflakes to be acceptable as an alternative to his regular cereal Weetabix, although containing more sugar, his condition does seem to have stabilised.

It just seems to be a case of going round the supermarkets, reading the labels. Unfortunately he has had to stop eating the pan with alioli and olives, which he loved and ate in great quantities!!
