Question from a parent: Quinoa Queen

A question from a parent:
I recently came across a product, Quinoa Queen, to try for my little guy! It looks promising, but when I called to inquire about some of their manufacturing practices, the owner told me they manufacturer their product in the same factory that handles corn and rice. She informed me the facility and equipment is cleaned thoroughly in between the production of her products and the products containing corn and rice. I was wondering if anyone in the group has a little one with FPIES to rice who tried this brand and was ok.

Hello, I have placed an order and thank you for the tip! I've only ever given her puffed quinoa cereal so this will be very exciting for her. My daughter has FPIES to a lot and is anaphylactic to milk and nuts. I have given her products in the past with may contain and had no issues but I'm choosey about the companies/products. I'm going to email Quinoa Queen and as if they have ever considered puffed quinoa cereal or even puffed quinoa cakes. I haven't figured out how to make quinoa cakes yet but would like something similar to rice cakes (which she cannot have). It's so hard to find friendly baby/toddler snacks and I spend so much time in the kitchen!!

Wow!  Thanks for the tip.  I just placed an order as well.  My son reacts to corn, rice, soy, and a lot more.  But, we don't usually have a problem with particles or manufactured in the same facility.  We do have a problem with "cheap" or "generic" brands in general (who knows what they are really putting in their products- my son is a better indicator than an ingredient list).

So excited to have potentially another quinoa choice!  So hard for me to find good recipes  . . .

Hi i have not tried this brand, but am always looking for some snack options. 2 things that have worked for my daughter are the Gerber Fruit and Veggie melts - they are made from just fruit and veggie purees and also the Gerber Lil Crunchers Garden Tomato flavor. The crunchers are made from corn and garden tomato is the only flavor that works for us...she cant have soy, dairy, rice or oats. These are 2 good on-the-go options for us, they may work for you too

Hi there! I'm the original poster Thank you for your reassurance and advice!!! It makes me feel better that another FPIES to rice kid can handle "May contain" products  

 

 

I was also wondering which brand of puffed quinoa you give to your little one? I would like to try that as well. Thanks!
