Freefrom Food Awards

Judges from many walks of life will be coming together in February to taste-test this year’s entries in the 16 categories that make up the Freefrom Food Awards.

Now in their fifth year, the Freefrom Food Awards celebrate the innovation and imagination shown by the food industry in creating foods that do not include ingredients such as wheat, gluten, dairy products, eggs, yeast, soya and sugar that can be associated with health problems and allergies.
 
The judges come from the professional food world (manufacturers, chefs and cookery writers) and from the medical world (dietitians and nutritionists). There will also be some allergy sufferers and coeliacs – plus some ‘normal’ food enthusiasts to benchmark the freefrom foods against their non-freefrom equivalents.
 
A shortlist of successful entries will be published March 1 and the winners, including the winner of the FAIR trophy of the Best FreeFrom Food 2012 (won last year by Doves Farm for their gluten-free self-raising flour blend) will be announced April 17. The Awards will be showcased at the Allergy and Freefrom Show at London’s Olympia May 18-20.
 
Michelle Berriedale-Johnson, editor of FoodsMatter.com, who chairs the judging sessions, said: “We have some really exciting entries this year and are particularly pleased to see that previously slender categories, such as FreeFrom Ready Meals, are positively bulging.”
 
“We are also very much looking forward to tasting the offerings in our new Raw Food and Superfood category – and, of course, in our ever popular gluten-free beer category. We never have any problems recruiting judges for that one!’
