Award-winning curry sauces from Anila’s are ideal for curry lovers with food allergies or intolerances…being dairy-free, gluten-free and sugar-free, and containing no onions or garlic.
With Food Allergy and Intolerance Week running from January 24th to 28th 2011, it’s the perfect time to discover how Anila’s Authentic Sauces can spice up the diet of anyone who has to take special care over what they eat.
Anila’s has a range of eight curry sauces, based on traditional Indian recipes. They have won 11 Great Taste Awards, and in 2009 Anila’s Spicy Korma Curry Sauce scooped a Free From Food Award. The Goan Green was recently voted Best Vegan product in the Veggie Awards 2011 run by Cook Vegetarian! magazine.
Suitable for vegetarians and vegans, as well as being sugar-free, gluten-free and dairy-free, they also, unusually, don’t contain onions or garlic, so are perfect for people with different intolerances or allergies.
“Producing items that are sugar-free, dairy-free and gluten-free is quite mainstream now, but I’ve noticed an increasing trend for people who are intolerant or allergic to alliums, like onions or garlic,” says Anila Vaghela, who founded the family-run business of Anila’s Authentic Sauces in 1997.
“I base my recipes for Anila’s curry sauces, chutneys and pickles on the dishes I create for my family, and don’t use onions and garlic. I seem to be gaining an increasing number of allium-intolerant customers who are delighted to discover that my traditional and tasty products don’t contain ingredients that upset them.
“Many people mistakenly believe that all curries contain onion and garlic, and curry-lovers could be missing out on their favourite foods because of this belief. But I don’t use alliums in my cooking or my products, and they are proving very popular.”
Anila’s also produces a distinctive and delicious range of 16 different mouth-watering ‘handmade’ chutneys, pickles and dips which are made with single fruits and vegetables, and team up perfectly with a variety of dishes, snacks, meats and cheeses.
Based in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey, Anila’s also has a unit in West London. Anila’s products are sold at John Lewis Oxford Street and John Lewis Bluewater, and top quality gourmet stores, such as Harrods, Wholefoods and Planet Organic, plus hundreds of other outlets that include health food stores, garden centres and gift shops, as well as smaller independent stores such as Budgens at Ascot, Shepperton and Crouch End. Anila’s also sells direct to the public at around 20 farmers’ markets across Surrey, Berkshire, and Buckinghamshire, including Guildford, Walton, Windsor, Maidenhead, Ascot, Ripley, Reading, Beaconsfield and Farnham, and online via www.anilassauces.com
Food Allergy and Intolerance Week is held from 24th – 28th January 2011 and run by Allergy UK.
