Tampa, FL (PRWEB) August 4, 2009 -- Food Allergies affect up to 6 percent of young children and 3.5 percent of adults in the United States. Scientists estimate over 12 million Americans suffer from Food Allergies. Allergiesandme.com was created to help individuals and families find the products needed to live with their allergies and food intolerances.
"I started the company after witnessing first-hand, the hardships in raising a child with severe multiple food allergies", said founder Jamie Stern. "The company was created to help people with Food Allergies, Food Intolerances and those that require Organic, Vegan, Vegetarian or special diets."
The company utilizes a new central facility to provide hand-selected specialty products for a myriad of dietary needs. To make it into the new state-of-the-art warehouse, each food manufacturer must demonstrate a total commitment to high quality and excellent tasting products.

Additionally, Celiac Disease, an extreme intolerance to gluten, affects at least 1 in 133 Americans, although only 1-in-4,700 is ever diagnosed.
