About Us

Free From Living is the UK’s first mainstream magazine, dedicated to free from life. 52% of UK households avoid some sort of foods, from people living with coeliac disease, people living with allergies or intolerances to people choosing to make more sustainable choices in the food they eat. Free From Living is here to simplify free from life. It stands up for its readers, helps them to take control of their conditions and inspires them to enjoy the pleasures of great tasting food.
