The Free From Food Awards are designed to celebrate the innovation and imagination shown by the food industry in creating foods that are free of wheat, gluten, dairy, eggs, nuts, soya, sulphites and other allergens. They’ve been running for 8 years and we are delighted to have come home with at least one award every single year to date.
The Awards are run by FreeFromFoodsMatter, an independent website packed full of information about Free From Foods including directories, new product reviews and the latest news and research.
This year, we entered 3 categories and were awarded a HIGHLY COMMENDED in all of them.
One of the lovely things about these awards is that we get great feedback from the judging panel, which is made up of Free From Food specialists, chefs, cookery writers, nutritionists, dietitians and ‘everyday’ people who live with special dietary needs. We’re so chuffed with the overwhelmingly positive comments from the judges that we want to share them with you:
The Innovation Award:
Booja-Booja Chilled Chocolate Truffle Selection
‘The first freefrom chilled truffle I’ve seen – comes so much closer to that wonderful soft creaminess of a traditional fresh truffle.’
‘Some really fun and unusual flavours which work surprisingly well in combination with cocoa.’
Desserts & Puddings:
Booja-Booja Pompompous Maple Pecan Ice Cream Alternative
‘Goodness ME this is a treat! Very unexpected as this is nut-based.’ ‘Good flavours, really enjoyable, didn’t taste remotely ‘freefrom’!’ ‘Amazing – so few ingredients.’ ‘Smooooooooth, creamy and tasty.’
Confectionery & Chocolate:
Booja Booja Rhubarb & Vanilla Fool Chocolate Truffles
‘Sharp, discernable rhubarb, light vanilla flavours.’ ‘A zingy combo!’ ‘Very pleasing combination of crunchy shell and smooth ganache filling.
