For those living with food allergies or intolerances, food shopping can present a monumental challenge.
With this in mind, ‘free from’ brand Free & Easy has unveiled a new range of food and drink products to help home cooks create dishes – whatever the dietary requirement.
Free & Easy’s range of soups, sauces, ready meals, curry pastes, gravies, and soft drinks blends ingredients, spices and seasoning to create flavours for easy and healthy meals.
Free from wheat, gluten and dairy, as well as other allergens such as nuts, celery and mustard but with flavour, Free & Easy foods and drinks have been made without artificial additives and preservatives, are low in salt, sugar and fat and are also suitable for vegetarians and vegans alike (accredited by the Vegetarian Society and The Vegan Society).
The latest statistics from the charity, Allergy UK, estimate that 45% (Coeliac Society data) of the UK adults suffer from food intolerances, yet just 2% have been diagnosed with food allergies.
But despite the fact that such a large proportion of the population is affected, food shopping remains a key hurdle for those living with or catering for food intolerances or allergies.
