What kinds of organic, vegetarian and allergy-friendly foods are available, such as organic produce, gluten-free products, meat substitutes for vegetarians, etc?
Moderate. Most stores have organic sections, but it's pricey. Haven't seen meat substitutes, but a vegetarian could do well here, despite the fact that Brazilians LOVE meat. There are plenty of grains and beans. - Dec 2011
No issues. Specialty foods are widely available and well-marked. - Aug 2011
