Jan 02, 2015 01:15PM
The Gluten Free Media Group is holding the second annual Phoenix Gluten Free & Allergen Friendly Expo on January 17 at the Renaissance Glendale Hotel & Spa. The Expo will allow attendees to sample hundreds of gluten-free products, and they will also have the chance to meet food manufacturers, authors and bloggers.
The event is designed for the celiac community and those with gluten sensitivities, autoimmune/inflammatory diseases and autism. Athletes and the health conscious can also benefit from the Expo. Allergen-savvy health care practitioners will be available to answer medical questions. Guests can attend free lectures and connect with gluten- and allergen-free restaurants, associated nonprofits and more.
All vendors are 100 percent gluten-free, and many also showcase products free of the top eight allergens: milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, soy and wheat. The Expo also offers personal care products, vitamins and supplements and green household cleaning alternatives.
Tickets can be purchased in advance or at the door. A one-day ticket is $20 for adults and $5 for children. Location: 9495 W. Coyotes Blvd., Glendale. For more information, visit gfafexpo.com.
