About Ian's

Allergy Friendly/Gluten Free

Allergy Friendly/Gluten Free

Families have trusted Ian’s allergy-friendly/gluten-free products since 2003, when we introduced the first allergy-friendly/gluten-free chicken nuggets and fish sticks to the market. Since then, we have grown to include lots (and lots!) of delicious offerings for any eating occasions.

It is said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and because families have grown to trust Ian’s and its signature yellow branding, many other food companies now go out of their way to look like Ian’s. But don’t be confused; reach for the original trusted yellow brand to serve your family the very best. Then relax and enjoy the carefree, worry-free lifestyle you and your family deserve.

At Ian’s, we too have family members with food allergies and intolerances and take great personal pride in providing you with trusted solutions to meet your needs. That’s why allergy-friendly means more than just what we put in the box.

Our allergy-friendly mission means Ian’s gives you:

  • A variety of great tasting meal solutions made with minimal food allergens, clearly identified on the front of package that the whole family will enjoy! (No more making separate meals!)

  • Choices to fit your family’s needs such as “gluten free”, “dairy free” or “nut free”

  • A handy online search tool to help you find products that meet your family’s needs

  • Easy to read icons and “NO” on the front of our packages, so you can see at a glance which allergens are not in our food

  • Products tested at an independent lab to verify our strict allergen standards

  • Clear labeling that uses product names you can understand

  • An experienced consumer relations team educated about food allergies and always happy to answer individual questions

  • Value sized family packs of our most popular items so you always have enough on-hand

  • Email newsletters focused on food allergies and sensitivities, with tips, new product previews, and coupon contests

Donations made to the leading support groups such as Kids with Food Allergies, the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN), Celiac Disease Foundation, Gluten Intolerance Group and many more. See our Resources page to learn about these and other great support and advocacy organizations!
