Alessandra Bester from Functional Food Company has been working on allergy friendly products. The idea came after years of experimenting in the kitchen looking for ways to manage her son’s Autism, Epilepsy, Allergies and her own IBS, Coeliac Disease and Fibromalagia.
‘I have learned a lot about the FreeFrom market having been the consumer who observed the growing range of products over the last 10 years. I quickly realised that free from gluten doesn’t mean free from fat, sugar and other allergens.’
In developing our products I needed to make sure that while using novelty ingredients I kept the levels of sugar and fat in healthy range. The nutrition calculation program was very flexible when assessing and evaluating less mainstream ingredients.
We use everything that nature has to offer around the world from baobab, acai berry, maca, matcha to homegrown pea powder and oats.
We are innovating producing a range of snacks that taste amazing & are also FreeFrom: gluten, nuts, dairy as well as other common allergens, with carefully reduced sugars. Our products are organic & without any colouring or preservatives with only natural ingredients.
