World’s Largest Health Food Festival Returns to Chicago

May 14, 2019 Visit USA No Comments Email Email

Nourished: The Gluten Free, Allergy & Specialty Diet Festival, formerly The Gluten Free & Allergen Friendly Expo, is returning to the Schaumburg Convention Center June 1-2 with expanded offerings to better accommodate the most popular food lifestyles. In addition to the existing Gluten-Free and Nut-Free zones, Paleo, Keto, and Plant-Based products will bring variety and educational opportunities to everyone living a gluten-free lifestyle. As in the past, all products at the festival will be gluten free.

Sample gluten-free products at the Nourished Festival

At the Nourished Festival, attendees will have one-on-one moments with over 150 brandsexhibiting the best products for food sensitivities, food allergies and modified diets. The festival also provides the opportunity to sample and purchase products, meet founders, receive coupons and attend free educational presentations hosted by industry-respected speakers.

While all products at the Festival are gluten free, many exhibitors will also showcase products free from the top eight allergens. Managed by The Nourished Group and presented by Enjoy Life Foods, this event is family friendly and ideal for anyone following a specialty diet lifestyle.

“Our festivals nourish the needs of the entire food community – whether its those with celiac disease, autism, autoimmune or inflammatory conditions or those committed to living a healthy lifestyle,” says Nourished Festival founder, Jen Cafferty. “With comfort foods like pizza and baked goods to healthy lifestyle options like protein bars and probiotic drinks, this festival truly offers something for everyone. An event of this scale being accessible to the general public is a rare and exciting way to explore new options and sample products before buying them in store.”

A sample of this year’s exhibitors includes:

  • Kiki’s Gluten Free Foods, a local Chicago area company, will be sampling and selling their gluten-free Deep Dish & Pub-Style Pizzas, Artisan Ravioli, Pita Breads, Desserts, Dry Mixes & more!
