2010 Free From Food Awards

The shortlist of Free From Products which are being considered by Foods Matter for the 2010 Free From Food Awards has now been released.

What an excellent initiative the Free From Awards are, they have helped give the special diet foods industry recognition that did not previously exist.  The list of foods being considered includes a wide variety of excellent products which really illustrates how the ‘free from’ market is growing and maturing.  Free from is being acknowledged by manufacturers and retailers alike and the selection  embraces products from a much wider sphere than just the baked goods historically at the centre of the ‘free from’ market.

The full list is  below separated into several categories.
