THE 2016 ALLERGY FRIENDLY PRODUCT GUIDE:
First let’s look at what people are allergic to. Bestowed explains that the FDA identifies these foods as the 8 most common food allergens:
- Fish (e.g., bass, flounder, cod)
- Crustacean shellfish (e.g. crab, lobster, shrimp)
- Tree nuts (e.g., almonds, walnuts, pecans)
“It can be hard to find tasty and nutritious products safe for every allergen sensitivity, so we’ve put together Bestowed’s 2016 Allergy-Friendly Shopping List. We’ve only included products that meet our strict quality standards with the added benefit of being free of at least one of the 8 most common allergens. I’ve personally reviewed and tested each of these products and give them my stamp of approval. Enjoy!” ~Heather Bauer
