For families or adults living with food allergies it can often feel like so many foods are off limits to you. But there is a whole world of allergy-friendly brands and products available to us! I have scoured the internet (especially Instagram) to find brands of all sizes and varieties, and came up with a list of over 60 food allergy conscious and inclusive brands worth knowing. From dairy-free chocolate to nut-free spreads, instant oats to dried fruit, nicecream to dairy-free milks, this thorough list compiles all the best allergen-free “alternatives”. Bookmark this great resource for quick reference!
*The intention of this list is to help you discover new brands that are allergy-friendly and inclusive. I have intentionally not included allergen information for each brand as products, ingredients, recipes, and production facilities can change over time. It is up to the individual reader to determine if a product is allergy safe for themselves. This list is not “free-from” a specific set of allergens, and does not focus on the top 14 allergens necessarily. Always read the labels and allergen statements, and contact the companies if necessary to determine if products are safe for you and your family before consuming.
