If you, or anyone in your family suffers from food allergies, then you know it’s no laughing matter. Meal times, snacks, parties are fraught with concern and worry about accidental exposures.  That’s why Veggie Fries created a veggie-packed, nutritious french fry that is free of the “top eight” allergens, including wheat/gluten, dairy, soy and nuts. Add them as a side to your favorite meal, or as a warm, crispy, delicious after-school snack, or even to your toddler’s list of favorite finger foods.

Nutritionist Marlo Mittler talks more about allergies HERE, including listing the signs and symptoms of food allergies and a Q&A with Veggie Fries co-founder, Cristina Peterson.

Here’s a snippet of the article:

There is no denying that most kids will never turn down a french fry.  However, parents today are often hesitant to buy them as so many studies report how unhealthy they are.  And for those families who have children with food allergies, there is often a greater concern for serving balanced meals with nutrient dense foods.  Well along comes a great solution, introducing Veggie Fries.  Veggie Fries are not only nutritious and kid-friendly, but parent approved.

Better than that, they are free of the top eight allergens.  So move over french fries, here come veggie fries. Veggie Fries are frozen french fries made from a blend of all natural farm grown vegetables, legumes, and potatoes, chopped and blended together with herbs, spices, and just a pinch of sea salt.

Cristina Peters (CP), one of the owners of Veggie Fries, took the time to share more about their commitment to health and food safety.  

Are all Veggie Fries allergen free? To what extent do you go to ensure this is handled correctly?  

CP:  None of the top eight allergens are present in our formulations.  We test every production run for gluten. Tree nuts, peanuts and eggs are not present in our factory. Dairy, soy and wheat are used in the factory, however good manufacturing practices are utilized to segregate these ingredients.  We are also the only product in the factory that also uses a unique non-GMO oil.  We are committed to the health of our costumers and safety of our products.
