National Baking Week – Ready, Steady, Bake!

From Monday 15th – Sunday 21st October 2018 it is National Baking week! National Baking Week is a great week to celebrate the cherry bakewell, the chocolate brownie and the unforgettable gooey chocolate chip cookie! However, if you have an Inherited Metabolic Disorder, you may not be able to indulge in all these bakes, as they come from the supermarkets’ shelves. That’s why we’ve created a list of providers, who offer some suggestions on baking recipes suitable for patients with certain Inherited Metabolic Disorders!

 

Adapting to a new diet or avoiding certain foods, due to your condition, can be tricky. With Inherited Metabolic Disorders, the foods you must avoid can differ hugely, depending on your condition and the severity of it.

 

As your patient organisation, we want to help you in every stage of your journey with an Inherited Metabolic Disorder, including adapting to your new dietary requirements. Here, we’ve collated a list of places you can find recipe ideas to suit your diet.
