The Allergy & Free From Show 2014

The Allergy & Free From Show 2014
I was so wrapped up with skincare that I almost forgot about the food side of the show, that has got to be a first for me. I stocked up on my favourite treats - Nakd, Rebel Kitchen and Ten Acre. I was a little disheartened to not find more 'new to me' treats but that may have been because my attention was distracted. Here is what I did discover -

Rubys of London - a Vegan Patisserie also specialising in wheat, gluten and sugar free. I found this stand late in the day and most of the stock was gone. I bought a Raspberry Coconut cupcake and it was divine (pictured above). If you live in London get yourself down to Greenwich Market.

Nizami Foods - when I was greeted with a warm smile and a plate of delicious samples, I immediately wanted to know some more about this company. Nizami have a range of sauces, chutneys and pickles described as “world cuisine with an Indian twist” I bought three bottles of their Romesco Sauce which is vegetarian, gluten, wheat and dairy free and no artificial ingredients

Freego - an online 'supermarket' for gluten free products but I was informed they offered many products catering for other allergies/intolerances.

Mr Sugarpuffish’s taste buds were tingling for chocolate, every time I turned around he was tucking into samples. I asked him which ones stood out and his vote goes to Pana Chocolate (vegan, gluten, dairy & soy free) and Cocolo (fairtrade & “may contain milk” warning for the dark chocolates).

For me, the Allergy Show will always be a great day out because it fits my lifestyle and ethos. I am always looking forward to the next one as soon as I get home.
