The Dallas Gluten Free and Allergen Friendly (GFAF) Expo will take place between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., October 27 and 28 at the Dallas Market Hall. This family-friendly event allows attendees the opportunity to sample new, delicious products risk-free from more than 100 local exhibitors and attend free educational presentations hosted by industry-respected speakers.
While all products at the GFAF Expo are gluten-free, many exhibitors will also showcase products free from the top eight allergens. Presented by Enjoy Life Foods, this event is ideal for the whole family and those following a gluten- or allergen-free diet.
"With flavorful comfort foods like pizza and baked goods to healthy lifestyle options like protein bars and probiotic drinks, this expo offers a wide variety of tasty products for nearly any specialty diet," says GFAF Expo founder Jen Cafferty. "An event of this scale being accessible to the general public is a rare and exciting way to explore new products and sample new options before you buy them."
Approximately 15 million people in the United States have food allergies/sensitivities - and those numbers are on the rise. What was once a niche condition is now commonplace with modified diets like gluten-free, dairy-free, Paleo, Keto and others becoming increasingly widespread.
Exhibitors include Hannah's Gluten Free Bakery, Xochitl Chips and Salsa, Big Box Catering, Salad Spice and Children's Medical Center in Dallas and Plano.
