The first comprehensive multi-allergen-free baking book, featuring 100 recipes for sweet and savory treats and a foreword by Dr. Robert Eitches, UCLA School of Medicine.
- These unique recipes are free of gluten, wheat, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, soy, sesame, fish and shellfish, which account for 90 percent of all food allergies
- More than 12 million Americans have food allergies; 3 million of them are children
With the number of cases of food allergies skyrocketing--peanut allergies have doubled in the last five years--parents are eager to find recipes for foods that are safe and appealing. Allergen-Free Baker's Handbook offers detailed explanations of alternative foodstuffs, advice about choosing safe products, and sources for buying them. Additionally, these recipes will appeal to vegans, people avoiding refined sugar and artificial ingredients, and whole-foods cooks interested in baking with gluten-free flours such as amaranth and quinoa.
