And according to Food Allergy Research & Education Facts & Statistics:
Only eight foods are responsible for 90% of food allergies in the United States.
The 8SAFE® label identifies a recipe that is made without any of the top eight allergens: wheat, milk (dairy), soy, egg, peanut, tree nuts, fish and shellfish. The label also takes it one step further to exclude all gluten (not just wheat).
In doing so, the amount of people who can safely eat an 8SAFE recipe becomes ridiculously inclusive by catering to over 40,000 different combinations of common restrictions.
And the beauty of it is — 8SAFE recipes aren’t intended strictly for those with dietary restrictions.
You can be anywhere on the spectrum from avoiding all or none of these trigger foods and be able to enjoy these recipes.
