Fody Food Co., a company committed to bringing back the joy in eating for those suffering from digestive issues with its abundance of gluten-free, low FODMAP, and dairy-free foods, has announced its continued support of the Celiac Disease Foundation, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating diagnosis, treatments, and a cure for celiac disease through research, education, and advocacy.
Celiac disease, a genetic autoimmune disorder in which the ingestion of gluten leads to damage in the small intestine, affects 1 in 100 people worldwide and often goes undiagnosed. Currently, the only treatment for celiac disease is following a strict gluten-free diet. While most patients with celiac disease see their symptoms improve on a gluten-free diet, 30-50% of adults have persistent symptoms and damage.
Fody Foods, a proud B Corp certified company, creates a wide range of delicious products in a variety of categories including sauces, salsas, condiments, dressings, and snack bars, all free from the triggers commonly associated with digestive discomfort. The products are certified gluten-free, Low Fodmap, Vegan and are non-GMO verified.
Steven J. Singer, founder of Fody, was also the co-founder of Glutino, one of North America’s leading gluten-free food brands, where he recognized the positive emotional impact that his gluten-free products had on those living with celiac disease. In Fody, he has identified a similar opportunity with another underserved community – the millions of IBS sufferers. With the backing of clinical research, Mr. Singer launched Fody Food Co. in 2016 to continue to provide gluten-free and low FODMAP options for people with celiac disease and digestive disorders. “We’ve always been dedicated to serving the gluten-free community safe, delicious products, and continuing to support the Celiac Disease Foundation is an exciting next step in strengthening our commitment,” said Mr. Singer.
“The Celiac Disease Foundation values Fody Food Co.’s commitment to raising awareness of celiac disease and expanding food choices for those who require a gluten-free diet,” states Celiac Disease Foundation Chief Executive, Marilyn G. Geller.
