You only know what you’re missing if you don’t have it anymore. Anyone who gets the diagnosis of lactose intolerance, sees the world a bit smaller: milk, goat cheese, yogurt and many other products are now out of the question. Cosy dining at a restaurant suddenly becomes something you consciously think about, and the same goes for a tasty snack between your meals.
You discover you’re no exception: approximately, between 1 and 3% of the population suffers from food allergies or food intolerance. This seems to be a problem of a small minority, but many allergies are not discovered yet: this is becoming a big problem.
The actual number of people with some form of food allergy is probably a lot higher. The proper diagnosis is missing quite often; many do not even know “where these complaints are coming from.” The scientists’ estimates a range from 20 to 30% of the population in Western Europe had food allergy or intolerance, as shown in publications of the leading trade journal “Nutrinews”. That number is only increasing. So this is a growing problem where many people suffer from, but why are there so few safe alternatives?
VA Foods has set itself the mission to provide those alternatives. From personal and social involvement, VA Foods will expand the market with a wide range of safe food resources. This food is free of allergens and therefore accessible to anyone with or without food hypersensitivity. VA Foods therefore makes products for everyone, because eating food is a social process.
It started with a gluten-free and lactose-free croquet, but now the range has expanded to include several other snacks, bread and stew. VA Foods is a family business where personal motivation the engine is for product innovation. New products are designed for you at home and made with care. Which results in tasty food.
