It is estimated that food allergies have increased by 50% over the last decade (source). With such a high rate of increase, it is more important than ever to be aware of the potential for allergens in all foods.

There are many reasons why someone might want to find allergen-free foods. For some, it is a matter of life and death. Others may have milder reactions but still want to avoid discomfort. And still, others may simply want to avoid processed foods as much as possible.

Whatever the reason, there are many ways to find allergen-free foods. This article will explore some of the best options.

Allergen-Free Foods Database

One of the best places to start when looking for allergen-free foods is the Allergy-Free Foods Database (AFFD). This database includes both packaged and unpackaged products from a variety of brands.

The AFFD is searchable by allergen, so you can easily find what you’re looking for. You can also search by product type, such as “baking mixes” or “cereals.”

Allergy-Friendly Recipes

Another great resource for finding allergen-free foods is allergy-friendly recipes. These recipes are designed to be free of common allergens, such as milk, eggs, nuts, gluten, and soy.

There are many websites and cookbooks that offer allergy-friendly recipes. Some of our favorites include:

  • Cooking for Isaiah (website)
  • The Allergy-Free Baby and Toddler Cookbook (book)

These recipes can be adapted to your specific needs and preferences. For example, if you’re allergic to eggs but not dairy, you can substitute another ingredient for the eggs. Or if you’re gluten-free but not dairy-free, you can use gluten-free flour instead of wheat flour.


Finding allergen-free foods doesn’t have to be difficult or time-consuming. With a little bit of research, you can easily find what you need.
