Kick the Gluten Habit for Better Health




The Dallas Gluten Free and Allergen Friendly (GFAF) Expo will take place between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., October 27 and 28 at  the Dallas Market Hall. This family-friendly event allows attendees the opportunity to sample new, delicious products risk-free from more than 100 local exhibitors and attend free educational presentations hosted by industry-respected speakers.

While all products at the GFAF Expo are gluten-free, many exhibitors will also showcase products free from the top eight allergens. Presented by Enjoy Life Foods, this event is ideal for the whole family and those following a gluten- or allergen-free diet.

"With flavorful comfort foods like pizza and baked goods to healthy lifestyle options like protein bars and probiotic drinks, this expo offers a wide variety of tasty products for nearly any specialty diet," says GFAF Expo founder Jen Cafferty. "An event of this scale being accessible to the general public is a rare and exciting way to explore new products and sample new options before you buy them."

Approximately 15 million people in the United States have food allergies/sensitivities - and those numbers are on the rise. What was once a niche condition is now commonplace with modified diets like gluten-free, dairy-free, Paleo, Keto and others becoming increasingly widespread.

Exhibitors include Hannah's Gluten Free Bakery, Xochitl Chips and Salsa, Big Box Catering, Salad Spice and Children's Medical Center in Dallas and Plano.

Tickets can be purchased in advance or at the door. A one-day ticket is $15 for adults and $5 for children. Location: 2200 N. Stemmons Fwy. For more information, visit gfafexpo.com.
