Posted by Beth Hillson on February 22, 2017

Unfortunately, there is no antidote or morning-after pill to ease the symptoms from gluten exposure. Each person reacts differently and uses different techniques to ease the symptoms.

Gluten- and Dairy-Free Chocolate Pudding Cups with Enjoy Life Chocolate Morsels!

Posted by Chrystal Carver on January 20, 2017

They follow gluten-free labeling laws and manufacture their products in a facility that is free from the top eight allergens: milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, soy, and wheat. They also take extra care when sourcing their ingredients, so none of the top eight allergens are brought into the production area. I probably have at least one of every product they make in my cupboard right now.
