Who we are at Nutfreeliving
Nutfreeliving was formed by me, Angela, five years ago and two years in to a diagnosis of nut & peanut allergy for the eldest of our three daughter's.
Initially after experiencing Anaphylaxis following a lick of an ice cream containing nut (age 11) my fears for my daughters future were spiralling out of control. I turned to nut and peanut allergy support forums and found it very reassuring to talk to other parents, parents experiencing the same fears, parent's trying to navigate the daunting world of allergy.
Eventually I noted a gap in the provision of a quick guide to seasonal products and formed Nutfreeliving Food Guides which share products that our suitable for both nut and peanut allergy and free from may contain statements. My work has also involved working with a major high street supermarket Technical Department to improve the allergy labelling on their website.
I also run specific support groups for University and school years and a general forum for allergy chat. All can be found on Facebook and Instagram.
The idea for the Marketplace ~
We created Nutfreeliving Marketplace where we source and sell products with assurances they are nut, peanut free and free from may contain statements.
We wanted to create an online shopping experience specifically for those living with the challenges of peanut and tree nut allergy and those who avoid may contain nut statement products. So often online retailers and supermarkets food search options for nut free are inadequate and poorly managed.
We are now sourcing many ' free from' ranges but only if first and foremost they are confirmed nut free.
