Non-allergic paradise

Finland is probably one of the best prepared countries for allergic sufferers in the world. Restaurants, cafés and supermarkets are all prepared for all kinds of allergies their customers could have. Especially with common allergies against lactose and gluten you don’t have to worry about accidentally buying the wrong product. Information if it’s suitable for you are not just printed on the product but also marked on the price sign at the shelf.

A reason for that is that allergies are pretty common in Finland. According to every second Finn suffers from some kind of allergy at some point in their life. 2 to 8 percent have some kind of food-allergy and 8 percent suffer from asthma.
