Why should we use tablelabels™?

How do you use tablelabels™?
Tablelabels™ are very easy to use. Write the name of the dish, check off the appropriate items, fold them like you would any place card and place it next to the dish. If you are hosting a party and want your guest to know “what’s in it!” let them know with tablelabels™.

How were the food items selected for placement on the tablelabels™?
The Mayo Clinic’s website was one site used to identify many of the top food allergy symptoms and concerns that include nuts allergies, egg intolerances, yeast and shellfish allergies, as well as dairy and gluten (celiac disease) concerns.

Why are some food listed for what the ingredients “are” and some identified as “free” of an ingredient?
The words were selected very carefully as to what is usual and customary in normal everyday language usage.

What if my allergic food is not listed on the tablelabels™?
Tablelabels™ were designed with a blank line for just that reason. When you made a dish with a specific allergic concern, that is not preprinted, that ingredient can be written into the blank space.

Use food place cards and food labels for your holiday buffet to easily identify common food allergy ingredients.
