  • If you have food allergies or dietary restrictions, be sure to carefully read the labels for all ingredients, including condiments and spices. For example, some brands of ingredients (especially sauces, salsas, etc.) may contain gluten and/or MSG and/or soy and/or fish/shellfish and/or carrogeenan (a seaweed-derived food additive difficult for some people to tolerate) and/or whatever other kind of ingredient/allergen you need to avoid to accommodate for your own family’s food allergens and dietary restrictions.
