Health Experts Join Forces with Tesco to Launch Food Intolerance Week
More than one in three people suffer from a food allergy or intolerance and many more may do but are unaware of it Health expert and GMTV regular, Liz Tucker, has joined forces with Tesco and food intolerance experts, YORKTEST Laboratories, to highlight the increasing problem of food intolerance and the effects it can have on both mental and physical health during Food Intolerance Week 2004 (26-30 January).
The partnership aims to raise awareness of food intolerance among the public, advise them on how to identify food intolerances and how to cope with this in everyday life. One of the major activities taking place during the week is a regional road show, which will be located at five Tesco stores across the UK to enable the public to find out more about food intolerance. Tesco has chosen the week to launch its new own-label range of Free From foods, which are gluten, wheat and milk free - including some foods previously unavailable to those on a special diet. The range includes hot cross buns, chicken nuggets, dairy-free spreads, sausages and pitta bread
