Is it just me or is it shocking how many people have food allergies these days?! From dairy, wheat and peanuts, to corn, soy, and even potatoes, the further along we seem to come in “technological foods”, the more and more people seem to reverting back to the basics. Hmmm, I wonder why?!
Well with out me going into a whole long spiel about the negative roles that GMOs, pesticides, etc. play on our foods and our bodies, it is fair to say that we need products we can rely on to not only taste good, but be good – and safe – for us to eat!
Namaste Foods is one of these companies, creating a huge array of products that are not only gluten-free, but are free from the top 8 allergens as well.
THE PRODUCT: Namaste Foods is a whole line of delicious and convenient foods that are free from the top 8 allergens (including: wheat, gluten, corn, soy, potato, dairy, casein, peanuts and tree nuts.) In business since 2000, this grassroots company takes pride in being the best at what they do so all of us can enjoy the foods we’ve known and loved our whole lives – just healthier.
Namaste Foods takes pride in creating worry-free products that are a better value than their counterparts (thanks to their “higher yield” mixes, compared to competitors; ie, all their cake mixes make TWO rounds as opposed to one. [Who ever heard of a one-layer birthday cake anyway?!])
With 23 mouth-watering varieties, including a Bread and Pizza Crust Mix, Waffle and Pancake Mixes, Seasoned Coating Mixes, Soups, and even Dessert Mixes, there is not only something for every taste, but for every meal!
NUTRITION-WISE: Namaste Foods do not contain any wheat, gluten, corn, soy, potato, dairy, casein, tree nuts or peanuts. Carefully made in a dedicated allergen-free facility, they are 100% all-natural, and are free from preservatives and GMOs.
However, I do want to state that just because a food is gluten-free, does not necessarily mean it is a health food. I mean, cakes and brownies are not exactly something that should be eaten at every meal. With that said, the foods that Namaste brings to the table are definitely much healthier than you would typically find and make it feasible for those with food allergies to enjoy birthdays, holidays, etc. without feeling deprived or left out.
Furthermore, Namaste Foods has included many recipes on their website that their products can be used to make. While many of these recipes are filled with “unhealthy” additions, they can easily be tweaked to make them more nutritious, again, allowing everyone to enjoy foods that were once considered “off limits”.
WHERE TO BUY: Namaste Foods can be purchased directly through their website, or to find the retail location nearest you, please visit their Store Locator.
FINAL THOUGHTS: No longer is it enough to just be “gluten-free”, but many companies are now making it a point to be totally free from the top 8 allergens so the majority of consumers can eat them without having to think twice. This is especially great when it comes to products that you typically see (or at least used to), in pantries across the US. From waffle and pancake mixes, to pizza crusts, and seasoned coating mixes, Namaste Foods really does have you covered.
Tasty and healthy, these products are great for everyone, whether or not you are concerned with allergens! Try any or all of Namaste Foods today and see for yourself how amazingly delicious allergen-free foods can be.
