The Free From and Allergy Shows
Gluten-free options are on nearly every Melbourne menu. Requests for milk alternatives are not just common but expected, and mock meat is becoming more and more common.
But that doesn’t mean having specific dietary requirements is always easy, especially with serious allergies.
The Free From Show is a weekend-long expo at Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre to showcase the very best in dietary-specific and allergen-friendly products. You'll find gluten-free beer from TWØBAYS Brewing Co on the Mornington Peninsula, Classica International's vegan spelt sourdough croissants and dairy-free milk from Mylk, among others.
The expo will include three days of lectures, demos and tastings from more than 100 exhibitors including Ben & Jerry’s ice-cream; Calmer Sutra tea; Field Roast, which does vegan meats and cheeses; and Sweet William, which sells vegan and gluten-free chocolate. The show will highlight products free from gluten, nuts, parabens, sugar, soy and animal products, and talks will help newly diagnosed coeliacs and teach you how to reduce toxins and chemicals in your home.
Fri & Sat 10am–5pm
