Free From Fortnight Fundraiser - EU Top 14 Allergens



As my Free From Fortnight Fundraiser starts tomorrow, Monday 15th September I am excited and intrigued as to how the two weeks will pan out. There are many pitfalls with starting a restricted diet and it is often not until you start that you appreciate the extent of the task ahead.

I will be excluding 14 food allergens plus caffeine, chocolate and alcohol. The EU food information regulations state the 14 main recognised food allergens that must be labelled in all packaged food (also applies to loose foods from 13th Dec 2014) are:

Milk
Gluten containing cereals
Egg
Ground Nuts
Tree Nuts
Soya
Sesame
Fish
Crustaceans
Molluscs
Celery
Mustard
Lupin
Sulphites

You can find out more about all of these allergens and many more at Allergy UK.
lease share my progress and donate (if you feel you would like to) through my
Just Giving page.

My first day coincides with a business trip that wasn't on the calender when I created my Fundraiser. I leave tonight so in preparation I have found some tasty ready packaged snacks that are freefrom the 14 allergens, caffeine , chocolate and alcohol. These with a good dose of fruit, vegetables and meat will see me through Monday.



Wish me luck and speak to you soon x
