Company Background:

Before Brands is a science-based health and wellness company dedicated to bringing innovative nutritional products directly to families.  Our product development builds on a growing body of evidence in support of nutritional strategies that include potentially allergenic foods as a regular part of a healthy diet.

The Company’s first product SpoonfulOne is the only holistic approach to food allergies, before foods become allergens.  The dry food mix-in powder makes it easy for families to introduce and maintain the most common potential food allergens in the diets of infants and toddlers.  Our patented dietary supplement is made with real ingredients including peanut, tree nuts, milk, egg, fish, shellfish, wheat, soy and sesame, which together account for 90% of food allergies.

The product is based on intellectual property developed by Dr. Kari Nadeau, Director of the Sean N. Parker Center for Allergy and Asthma Research and Stanford University, and licensed to Before Brands™ on a global, exclusive basis.  Before Brands is a member of the Council for Responsible Nutrition. We Nourish Possibilities™.
