GERMANTOWN, Md. and BOXBOROUGH, Mass., Jan. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Kitchology, the first mobile app solution designed for cooks managing food allergies, today launched their e-commerce initiative through a partnership with fellow food technology startup, Tasterie, a leading provider of allergy-friendly food subscription boxes. The relationship will further the companies' shared goal to help the 83 million Americans dealing with food allergies and intolerances.

Kitchology aims to overcome food allergies through the power of technology and this new alliance supplies another tool for the arsenal of its user base. The affiliate relationship provides a direct connection from Kitchology's platform to Tasterie's marketplace, which allows consumers to experience new and relevant products each month, including meal and baking mixes, healthy/energy snacks, bars, desserts and more.

Tasterie puts every item through rigorous screening with manufacturers to ensure each is safe and well suited for the food allergy community.  

Tasterie will have a dedicated recipe channel on the Kitchology web and mobile apps as well. Subscribers gain exclusive access to recipes from manufacturers whose items are featured in Tasterie boxes and dishes from consumers who use these products.

"This synergistic partnership is about families and cooks dealing with food allergies," said Iris Sherman, Co-Founder and President of Kitchology. "They need to discover new products, ingredients and recipes and connect with others with similar conditions. The products Tasterie features are unique and well curated, but often difficult to find. We're increasing the access to these tools for our community."

"Having food allergies does not mean you are restricted to use the same products over and over again," said Dr. Lama Rimawi, Founder of Tasterie. "Our partnership with Kitchology allows us to reach and empower more consumers to take control of their lives."
