A lot of people have allergies and dietary requirements. Some that we are focusing on are:
- Gluten Free (GF): Gluten Free diets are used to help people with Celiac/Coeliac Disease, Gluten Sensitive IBS and Gluten Intolerance. Celiac/Coeliac Disease is an autoimmune disorder that causes the immune system to attack the smaller intestine due to the consumption of Gluten. There is no cure for the disease and the only way to handle the illness is by eating a completely Gluten Free diet – this means avoiding Wheat, Rye, Barley, Oats, Malt, Spelt, and Triticale. The best way to avoid Gluten is to always read the label and make fresh food when possible.
- Lactose-Free (LF): Lactose Intolerance can be taken care of by drinking/eating Lactose-Free items. However, Lactose-Free items don’t have to be Soya or Rice, it can be Lactose-Free Milk/Items which is Cow’s Milk that has had the Lactase Enzyme added.
- Dairy Free (DF): Dairy Intolerance is a sensitivity to anything containing cow milk. Alternatives are Soya Milk and Rice Milk.
- Egg Free (EF): Egg allergy is the most common food allergy among Infants and Children – it is something that most people grow out of. In recipes that only use Egg as a component, there are different ways to substitute it – for example, adding extra baking powder to a cake mix.
- Nut Free (NF): Nut Allergy is a common allergy that causes people to be unable to eat Nuts.
- Vegetarian (MF): Someone who doesn’t eat meat or fish.
- Pescatarian (MFP): Someone who doesn’t eat meat, but eats fish.
- Vegan (APF): Someone who doesn’t eat/drink any animal produced product (Milk, Butter, Meat, etc).
