Joanne Hollander's suggestions, observations and a few anecdotes about food and eating today:

Food Allergy App Verifies Soyummi's Puddings and COGOResearchers estimate that to 15 million American are living with food allergies, including 1 in 13 children (under the age of 18). An even greater number — between 30 and 50 million
of Americans suffer from food intolerances, such as lactose intolerance, which aren’t life threatening, but nevertheless require stringent avoidance to remain healthy. As technology becomes increasingly integrated into our lives, it isn’t surprising that technological solutions, like the Content Checked food allergy app, can now help Americans navigate the grocery store and hopefully, will have them reaching for Soyummi Puddings and COGO Coconut Milk Smoothies more frequently.

For the first time, if Content Checked app users scan any Soyummi Pudding or COGO Coconut Milk Smoothie variety that are currently for sale in the US, then they will receive a detailed report about the allergens, or lack their of, in each flavor. When Joanne Hollander, our founder and product developer, started Soyummi Foods, she was inspired to develop allergen-friendly food because she struggled to find food at grocery and health food stores that adhered to her son’s lactose intolerance diagnosis and realized that other moms who have children with one or multiple food allergies struggle in the same way. Since Soyummi was created because of a mother’s experience with her child’s food restrictions, it’s significant that our puddings and smoothies are now listed on Content Checked. It feels like the allergic community is validating Soyummi Foods’ products.

It isn’t that individual consumers with allergies or who have kids with them haven’t shown that there is a real need for Soyummi Puddings and COGO Coconut Milk Smoothies already. We get many emails and comments on our social media channels that show us that people with lactose intolerance, allergies, and even vegetarian or vegan lifestyles rely on the food we create. We always have. But somehow, now that over 72,000 US users, as of October 21, 2014, (and growing) have our products at their fingertips, it seems a whole lot bigger.
