We strive to disseminate accurate information and educate the public to help people who suffer from food allergies. The Food Allergy Net, operated by NH Foods Ltd. since 2003, provides videos of allergen-free recipes. The number of recipes that use allergen-free processed foods is being increased under the supervision of a pediatric allergy educator* who is a registered dietician with the hope that we can reduce the day-to-day dietary burdens of users.
In addition, the Nipponham Foundation publishes a booklet that contains recipes, holds seminars for nutritionists and registered dieticians, conducts allergen-free cooking contests, and undertakes other measures to increase public understanding.
Note: A specialized allergy co-medical certification program certified by the Japanese Society of Pediatric Clinical Allergy
Food Allergy Net Information Website
NH Foods Ltd. launched the Food Allergy Net website in 2003 with the hope of providing food allergy-related information to as many people as possible and to relieve the burdens of food allergies to the extent possible.
The site provides a wide range of information including videos of allergen-free recipes and specialized information relating to food allergies prepared with the cooperation of experts.
We also receive several thousand comments from users via the Food Allergy Net website each month, and we make use of those opinions in various initiatives including the development of products.
Allergen-Free Recipe Booklet
The Group has undertaken a variety of initiatives relating to food allergies since 1996 with the aim of providing the “Joy of Eating” to many people. One aspect of these initiatives is the provision of “Safe Recipes,” allergen-free recipes from the Food Allergy Net website.
A booklet with the recipes was also published so that they can be used by a large number of people.
