Food Alerts on your Mobile – great service

October 15, 2009 (FCA)  (, a free online and mobile service, was announced today by Durk  Barnhill, General Manager, TAXI NY. provides critical information and personalized data  management both at home and on-the-go for the nearly 70 million people in the United States and Canada alone suffering from food sensitivities, including food allergies, celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity, and those  affected by their needs including children’s playmates, teachers, friends, family members and co-workers.

“After extensive research and testing, we’re thrilled to launch this  first-of-its-kind highly personalized food management tool,” said Barnhill.  “Charter sponsorships with Enjoy Life Foods, Twinject Canada and Guardian
Angel Foods confirm the marketing value of this tool for these companies and their unique products in the food sensitivity category.”

FCA is a free web service designed to help sufferers of food sensitivities (allergies and intolerances) manage the many types of detailed data they need to keep specific ingredients and foods out of their diets.

The site provides  users with safe, reliable online and mobile tools for creating customised databases, recipe boxes, shopping lists and food sensitivity profiles. In addition to tips on avoiding many foods, FCA helps people discover new food recommendations from others dealing with their same sensitivities – they’re able to share recipes, ingredient updates and other information with the user community.

“There is a growing need for this type of safe and reliable information that is easily accessible through the Internet and mobile phone. The number of people dealing with food sensitivities is growing daily, and we have partnered with FCA for the help it can provide consumers,” said Scott Mandell, CEO, president and founder of Enjoy Life Foods. “Sponsoring this service provides a valuable resource for us to connect with them.”

The online and mobile service are accessible worldwide – and, following a beta stage, include users in the United States and Canada, as well as new user groups in the United Kingdom, New Zealand and Australia.

“I wish this wonderful website was around when my son was first diagnosed,”  said Gina Clowes, founder, “It would have saved me hours and hours of time each year, reprinting ’safe’ snacks lists for family and friends. I know this will be a fantastic resource for allergy parents to share with teachers, relatives, friends and family.”

The site features include:

– My Safe Foods: Allows users to create customized lists of “personally  approved” foods and share them. A great way to find new recommendations for people on restricted diets.

– My Recipes: Input your own recipes, discover new recipes, share with others, and add ingredients to a shopping list or share with friends and family.
