Review and Giveaway:(US only): Namaste Foods



Who is Namaste?
They are a small  manufacturer of fine foods that contain no wheat, gluten, corn, soy, potato, dairy, casein, peanuts or tree nuts. In business since 2000, they continue to strive to be the best at what they do so that you can enjoy all the foods you’ve known and loved all your life.

They also sent me 2 of their product mixes. As pictured, I made their cookie mix and added some chocolate chips to it.( Please note this is only a few of the cookies it made- the bag will make more than what I have on the plate. The others were in the oven baking.) Gerry and I liked the taste of the cookies and didn't find them much different then any other types of cookies. When one gets used to eating the store or bakery brands, you will notice a slight difference in the taste, but we found  it very minimal. They mixed up nice and baked nicely as well.I'm even giving some to my niece's bake sale she is having at the school, since they are nut free, AND with so many children having food allergies nowadays, I thought it would be something different to add to what I already baked.

I also recieved a pasta and cheese mix, but we weren't too keen on it.One has to remember that with allergy free foods, I am told, the taste won't be exactly a comparison to what you've had before, but it's always worth trying if you are looking for that substitute. It's no different than buying no name. You either like it or you don't.

As you may know, I have food intolerances, and currently avoiding a few foods till I see the specialist at the end of October.

We do believe that Namaste has a great line up of products here and does offer great price comparison's to their competitors- costs per ounce.

Namaste is celebrating 10 years and is know as one of the most respected manufacturers of gluten and allergen free foods in the USA.
They offer free allergy free and gluten free recipes on their web site, as well as living well information about food allergies.

Namaste Foods produces products free of as many allergens as possible for a good reason. Allergen-free diets are an every day part of the lives of millions of people who struggle with many chronic health disorders. Discovering a hidden food allergy can make a world of difference in your health. But that is only the tip of the iceberg. Food allergies cause inflammation and poor nutrient absorption, resulting in a variety of health problems including Celiac disease, Colitis, Crohn’s disease and many more. An allergen-free diet is often beneficial to those with Autism, GERD, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, food sensitivities and Lupus, just to name a few.





Nasmaste would love to give away to one  of our lucky readers in the USA, one of their prize packs as pictured.
A random draw will be made by Random.org on October 3, 2010 from all entries recieved.


To Enter:
Please tell us if you or someone in your family has food allergies or intolorances and what kind?

Thank you, I would love to try this. I have a corn allergy, which makes it very difficult to eat at restaurants or any packaged mixes.
Since so many foods contain corn syrup I can't even enjoy sweets in most cases.

We're an Asian family so everybody is partially or total lactose intolerant. But I would rather give these to my cousin because her son has Celiac disease.

I have celiac disease (gluten intolerance) and was diagnosed in 1996. Lots of great choice out there now since 1996 :) For convenience, our family (hubby and son who is 3) are on a glutenfree diet so I dont' have to double cook every night. Thank you for offering a gluten free giveaway!
