Working magic on alleviating allergies
Everybody struggles to get going after a long weekend, but there was no slacking in the FoodTalk studio for Sue Nelson and Guy Routledge – they had some fantastic advice to hoover-up too.
To kick us off, we noticed we were in a bit of a Wandsworth world. Sue was born there, Guy lives there and, most importantly, our first guest Helen Roberts is working Wandsworth magic for local companies in the food industry. Advice, workshops and events – they do it all to help.
For the rest of the show, we got to grips with a massive talking point in the Food Sector at the moment – food allergies and intolerances. With more and more people discovering health issues, it has coincided with many more businesses sensing the gap and popping up to help.
First of all, we heard back from Mannavida – they create some amazing kits designed to help people with a gluten intolerance to enjoy delicious breads in their home without having to scour the supermarket shelves for a bread that’s not only expensive but doesn’t taste as good as bread should.
Our final guest, Mittun Sharma, wishes that cost was the only issue in his weekly shop – he currently has the added drain of time, ever since his family discovered that his daughter is allergic to nearly all food types. The hours spent trying and failing to find suitable foods led him to creating his myAllergy app – a tool of good for people aghast at their allergies.
