Should be fine.
I've taken food items abroad (Europe and S.America) and brought stuff back with no problems.

I tried to take butter to Malta in January, they binned it because it was a 'paste'.

It's not the airlines it's security.

I think they would allow you to carry dairy free spread in your checked in luggage. As long as it can be stored outside of the fridge, I suspect it might go runny in the heat. I've carried soya milk cartons in my checked in luggage. Gluten free breads, pastas etc should be fine. On a recent trip to Paris I identified the nearest supermarket and looked at the products they carried online and they carried most free from products. I appreciate that you may not be nr a supermarket but it's worth looking. Anne

I would've put it in my checked in luggage not my hand luggage.
Thanks everyone!

Thank you! I don't think I'm near a supermarket at all. But I think I'll just take pasta to be safe . I did look at the airport info and it just says about not bringing meat and animal products but nothing about anything else. Hopefully the pasta and noodles will be okay! :)

You'll have to slather your gf stuff in hummus/ tahini etc. If you drink tea/coffee I'd pack some dairy free milk alternatives. Enjoy your hols! X

Yes fine....they have Lidl in Greece practically everywhere for cheap food too.
24% VAT so food can be expensive.
