SECAUCUS, N.J., Aug. 17, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Approximately 15 million people in the United States have food allergies/sensitivities - and those numbers are on the rise.

What better way to sample alternative food products than a fun day at an Expo? The Secaucus Gluten Free and Allergen Friendly Expo is returning to the Meadowlands Exposition Center October 13-14 from 10am-3pm daily. This weekend-long, family-friendly event allows attendees the rare opportunity to sample new, delicious products risk-free from 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 byEnjoy 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," said 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."
