SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Legacy Food Storage, a manufacturer of good tasting, high-quality gourmet meals for food storage and emergency use, today expanded its gluten-free emergency food and supply offerings with a new 16 serving sample kit and a 32 serving, 72-hour emergency kit. These new kits provide more options for individuals suffering from celiac disease or otherwise following a gluten-free diet.
According to a study published in The American Journal of Gastroenterology in March, more than 1.5 million Americans have a severe immune reaction to the gluten protein in breads and other foods, mainly inflammation in the small intestines. Another 1.5 million without celiac disease follow a gluten-free diet as well for various reasons, including losing weight or for simply eating healthier.
“While Legacy has long provided gluten-free, freeze-dried entrees and sides for emergency situations, those with celiac disease or choosing to eat gluten-free for whatever reason haven’t been able to purchase smaller sample size packets or emergency kits without gluten,” said Phil Cox, CEO, Legacy Food Storage. “The new sample kit lets them try these tasty and simple-to-prepare gluten-free meals before deciding to purchase them in larger quantities, and the new gluten-free 72-hour kits makes the entire kit appropriate for their health needs.”
Each kit includes a variety of servings of Legacy’s nine gluten-free emergency meals (http://www.preparewise.com/food-storage/gluten-free-food-storage.html#.VS5TYIf_2lQ) and side dishes, all manufactured in strictly monitored, contaminant-free facilities. These foods include:
- Enchilada, Beans and Rice
- Cheese & Broccoli Bake
- Cheese & Broccoli Soup Mix
- Cheesy Potato Soup Mix
- Vegetable and Rice Soup Mix
- Potato Soup Mix
- Spicy Corn Chowder Soup Mix
- Classic Chili Mix
- White Bean Chili Mix
The new kits cost $46 for the 16-serving sample kit and $94 for the 32-serving 72-hour kit, and can be purchased online from Legacy affiliates such as http://www.preparewise.com and http://www.buyemergencyfoods.com.
