Food allergies are nothing to sneeze about. While some bring mild discomfort, others can cause pain, sickness, or even death. The top 8 food allergens are wheat, eggs, milk, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, and seafood. You can learn more about these allergies from the Food Allergy Research & Foundation.

If you or someone in your family has food allergies, your local Hy-Vee registered dietitian can help you find alternative foods to avoid allergens. Here are just a few of the brands we're currently loving.

  1. Safe + Fair Popcorn Quinoa Chips

    Non-fried chips made with non-GMO grains and free of nuts, eggs, milk, wheat, and soy, this delicious snack is sure to satisfy your sweet-and-salty tooth.

  2. Amy's Rice Mac & Cheese

    A cheesy, creamy, and satisfying alternative to pasta, Amy's Rice Mac & Cheese is made with gluten-free organic rice pasta. Plus, it's kosher, soy-free, and free of tree nuts.

  3. Goodbelly Probiotics

    This probiotic-rich beverage is organic, vegan-friendly, soy-free, dairy-free and includes no GMOs. Some flavors are even gluten-free as well.

  4. Enjoy Life

    If you haven't discovered the Enjoy Life brand, you may be missing out—especially on their gluten-free and vegan brownie mix, which features all-natural ingredients, such as whole-grain teff flour.

  5. Katz Donut Holes

    Now's your chance to satisfy that donut craving. Katz Donut Holes are gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, and contain no nuts. What they do have is a delicious sweet glaze.

  6. So Delicious Frozen Dessert

    If you need to avoid dairy, that doesn't mean a creamy frozen treat is off limits. So Delicious is a dairy-free cashewmilk-based dessert that includes flavors such as dark chocolate truffle and salted caramel cluster.

  7. Safe + Fair Granola

    Most granola contains a host of the top food allergens, but not this Birthday Cake-flavored granola, which happens to be gluten-free, nut-free, and vegan.
