I don’t know about you, but I can say for me, that the number of clients coming to me with food allergies has increased exponentially in the past five years. In fact, did you know that over 100 million people have been diagnosed with food allergies and that one in every 13 children has a food allergy? This is alarming, and I am constantly looking for the best food products for patients with food allergies. One of the brands that I have grown to trust the most is Enjoy Life Foods—these products are one of the most allergy-friendly on the market.
Enjoy Life Foods has a wide array of products—over 70 products to be exact! They have everything from baking chocolate and mixes to snack bars and lentil chips. Since 2001, Enjoy Life Foods has offered products that are certified gluten-free and free-from 14 allergens, including: wheat, dairy, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, casein, fish, shellfish, crustaceans, sesame, sulfites, lupin, and mustard. All their offerings are produced in a dedicated nut-free and certified gluten-free facility.
One thing that I love about Enjoy Life Foods is that they are easy to find. Their teal packaging, celebrating food-allergy awareness, stands out on the shelves. And Enjoy Life Foods products are available at over 40,000 retailers throughout the States and in major retailers throughout Canada. You can find Enjoy Life Foods at Whole Foods, Kroger, CVS, Walmart, on Amazon, Vitacost, Thrive, and more.
In addition to being allergy-friendly, Enjoy Life Food products are clean too—they are made with all-natural ingredients, free of refined sugar and contain no artificial flavors or colors. Many of their products are Paleo or vegan friendly as well. Over 20 of their products are now Certified FODMAP Friendly (Watch for my next blog on this topic).
One of the things I appreciate so much about Enjoy Life Foods is their resources! Their Survival Guide explains the top eight allergens and the many common products that these allergens can be lurking in. The Healthcare Professionals section of their website offers tools and resources specifically for healthcare professionals to be able to distribute to their patients. And then they offer amazing recipes!
If you are going to FNCE, be sure to stop by the Enjoy Life Foods booth. They’ll have plenty of resources on hand such as handouts and booklets that you can share with your patients. I hope to see you at FNCE! I love connecting with others who share my passion for health education!
