Why We Love Partake Foods

It’s hard to find wholesome, health-focused food designed for people with allergies, and it’s even harder to find allergen-free snacks that actually taste good. Thankfully, Partake Foods is making it much easier to do just that.

Partake‘s cookies and baking mixes are free of the top 8 allergens; including dairy, eggs, soy, peanuts, and tree nuts. All of Partake‘s products are also certified gluten-free, certified vegan, and non-GMO, and kid-approved. (Seriously. Many kids love Partake‘s gluten-free and vegan options even more than their normal cookies and snacks!) When it comes to making healthier, tastier options for baked goods more accessible, Partake Foods is raising the bar, one snack a the time.

The Partake Foods Origin Story

Est. 2016

Denise Woodard’s daughter suffered from various food allergies, which made it difficult to find snacks and treats at the grocery store that were both tasty and safe for her to eat. Recognizing the lack of worry-free, tasty, options available, Woodard saw an opportunity to create more wholesome, great-tasting snacks that her daughter could enjoy, safely and stress-free. She started crafting her own collection of cookies, each made using real ingredients and specific, allergy-friendly nutritional profiles.

Soon after, Woodard started working with a food-scientist to bring her products to life, so that she could share them with others looking for healthier, tastier, safer snacks and treats. After a lot of work creating and refining crave-worthy recipes and vetting allergen-free, gluten-free, and vegan food facilities, Woodard had her first line of cookies ready to go, and Partake Foods introduced its first products to the public.

Since then, Partake Foods has launched 10 cookie flavors, a variety of snack packs, and a collection of baking mixes — all free of the Top 8 most-prevalent allergens (plus other common allergens like sulfites, mustard and sesame). In addition to finding them online, Partake Foods now sells in Whole Foods, Target, Kroger, and many other grocery stores nationwide. As Partake Foods continues to expand, Woodard mentors other Black and female founders in the food industry and has started the Black Futures in Food & Beverage Fellowship Program, designed for active HBCU students interested in exploring a career in CPG food & beverage.

The Science of Partake Foods

Partake Foods makes cookies and baking mixes for people with (and without) dietary restrictions that are safe, healthy, and most importantly, delicious to eat. All Partake Foods products are free of the Top 8 allergens; which includes ingredients like peanuts, eggs, dairy, tree nuts, and soy. They are also free from the nasty additives present in many packaged foods like artificial flavors, preservatives, and GMOs.

Not to mention, Partake is also certified gluten-free and vegan. Using whole ingredients like oat flour, cacao, ginger, beetroot, and sweet potatoes (to name a few), Partake crafts snacks and treats that are better for those who require a restricted diet, for kids, and for anyone who enjoys a solidly nutritious snack — so we won’t blame you for sneaking some yourself.

The Soul of Partake Foods

In addition to making great tasting foods, Denise Woodard and Partake Foods prioritize giving back to the greater community. Continuing its mission to make wholesome, trustworthy snacks more accessible, Partake Foods partners with the Food Equality Initiative to ensure that families living with food allergies and food insecurity have access to safe, healthy food options, educational resources, and support.
