How do I submit a question to Ask BeFreeForMe?
At the bottom of each "Ask BeFreeForMe" email is a link to submit your own question. Please note that we have a lot of questions to answer and many require research and contributions from specialists and experts, so sometimes it takes awhile to answer some questions!
Why are there only five categories for the allergens (gluten, fish, dairy, nuts and soy)? Why didn’t you subcategorize the nut category between peanuts and tree nuts, or separate wheat from the gluten category?
BeFreeForMe researched the feasibility of breaking down the allergens further than the five allergen categories currently being used (gluten, nuts, dairy, fish and soy). After the research, it was decided to use these five broader allergen labels, since there can be replacement product used (i.e. many recipes generalize ingredients such as “nuts” or “seafood” with no specification to the type or source) We suggest that you explore each one of our recipes and further evaluate the specific ingredients, and if any contain the allergen specific to your concern.
How do I submit a recipe to BeFreeForMe?
On the Recipe tab is a link to submit your recipes that you would like to share with others. We prepare our editorial calendar & recipe content months in advance so you may not see the recipe you submit immediately.
How can you guarantee that each recipe in the BeFreeForMe database is allergen free?
At BefreeForMe our intent is to make sure that our recipes are free of the allergens noted and are safe for those inflicted by that allergen to eat. However, like any situation you are in or item you purchase, it is imperative that each and every ingredient for every single recipe or meal be examined for the detection of any specific allergen. It is each member’s personal responsibility to make sure that any recipe or product is safe for those inflicted with food allergies or intolerances to eat.
