It seems like celiac disease is the new lactose intolerant. Growing up, doctors never mentioned cutting wheat, barley, and rye out of your diet, preferring to blame milk and cheese for an upset stomach. Now, times have changed and allergies to gluten, milk, soy, nuts, corn, eggs, potato, and fish are common. Allergaroo products are free of the 8 most common food allergens, plus some.
The country’s only allergy-free, gluten-free brand of ready-made dishes, Allergaroo is made with high-quality, all natural and GMO-free ingredients. The contents include rice pasta with a sauce made of tomato paste, vegetable puree, olive oil, sea salt, and spices. They’re low calorie, low fat, high protein, high fiber, and cholesterol free – all this in a microwaveable pouch.
There are three different varieties currently available – Spyglass noodles, Spaghetti, and Chili Mac. All of them are super easy to prepare – cut open the pouch, heat for a minute, and serve.
The Spyglass noodles are penne with ground chicken in the sauce. Unlike other rice pasta, this isn’t gummy or sticky. The soft, delicate noodles are delicious and you can really taste the spices (but there’s little to no hot spices).
The spaghetti noodles are a little al dente (slightly hard) and the sauce is a little thin. The flavor is full bodied and peppery, which more than makes up for it not being a chunky sauce.
As for the chili mac, it’s elbow pasta with chicken chili sauce and pinto beans. The noodles are harder than the spaghetti noodles, which isn’t pleasing. The flavor is great, and cooking it further might soften up the noodles. A very mild chili flavor with hints of tex-mex origins makes this a great dish for adults and children.
