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

Best check with the airlines

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 meant the Airlines have all the information online

in checked luggage or carry on ?

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.
