The party starts at 8:30 pm eastern time this evening. The hashtag is #foodallergy. Our panelists are Gwen Smith (Editor), Simon Clarke (Food Editor) and Susan Clemens (Moderator) of Allergic Living Magazine. Yesterday, we introduced Solutions to Savor, Allergies and Me, and Fancypants Bakery. Today, I am pleased to introduce our other three sponsors.
Kinnikinnick Foods is an amazing food allergy and celiac friendly company based in Canada. Kinnikinnick has a dedicated wheat-free, gluten-free and nut/peanut free facility--remarkable, isn't it? They have some wonderful products available in a number of stores. I even spied some safe doughnuts in the freezer section at the grocery store, gluten-free, nut-free and peanut-free--not an easy combo to find! They also have Kinnikinnick TV, including an excellent video about the importance of gluten-free facilities and equipment. It puts a whole new light on cross-contamination.You should really check it out!
Navan Foods is owned by food allergy mom, Jennifer Elizondo. The customer service at Navan is second to none and they have an extensive selection of food allergy and celiac friendly foods from which to choose. They also have a brick and mortar store, located in Virgina Beach, VA. I hope to get down there one of these days!
Sweet Alexis is a wonderful nut-free, peanut-free, dairy-free and egg-free bakery owned by Michele Fellows, a fellow food allergy mom. Please take a look at a post I wrote about Sweet Alexis early in 2009: Sweet, Sweet Alexis and Her Amazing Dairy-Free, Egg-Free, Nut-Free and Peanut-Free Bakery. Michele's baked goods are exquisite; if you read my post--linked above--you'll see how much we LOVED those Sweet Alexis goodies!
Thank you to Allergic Living Magazine and to all our sponsors--we couldn't do it without you! Looking forward to seeing you this evening.
