CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Enjoy Life Foods Soft-baked Snickerdoodle cookie earned a place as one of Prevention Magazine’s 100 Cleanest Packaged Foods. The award, given annually by the magazine, cited Enjoy Life Foods Snickerdoodle as a winner in the “Snacks” category, and is the only cookie selected in the top 100 products. Requirements for winning were strict: products had to be GMO- and BPA-free, have no more than 10 grams of added sugar, and contain no more than 200 mg of sodium - besides being delicious.
Enjoy Life Foods is the leader in the "free from" food category, with food products that are all certified gluten-free and free from the top eight allergens; wheat, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, soy, fish and shellfish - the allergens that account for 90% of all food allergic reactions in the United States. With a variety of great-tasting product offerings that include cookies, bars, lentil chips, cereals, granola, and baking chocolate, Enjoy Life Foods gives millions of food allergy sufferers choices from which to “Eat Freely.”
Prevention.com’s feature on the 2014 Cleanest Packaged Food Awards said of Enjoy Life Foods’ Soft-baked Snickerdoodles: “It's hard to believe that allergy-friendly cookies can taste so incredibly good. These little circles melt in your mouth with a burst of cinnamon, but there's no butter at all. Beloved by allergy sufferers and omnivores alike.”
“We are delighted to receive this recognition from such a well-respected publication as Prevention,” says Joel Warady, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, Enjoy Life Foods. “And see this as not only a nod to our delicious Snickerdoodles but also affirmation that our 'free from' cookies, bars, chips, and other allergy-friendly products are seen as a popular solution for people who seek a ‘better-for-you’ alternative to eating, whether they have food intolerances or are simply seeking clean-ingredient packaged foods."
According to Food Allergy Research Education (FARE), food allergies are serious medical conditions that affect up to 15 million people in the United States, including 1 in 13 children. It's a growing problem and increasing the availability in retail stores of foods that are safe for these people is more important than ever.
