In partnership with the American Diabetes Association® and Beyond Type 1, Egglife helps answer the question: What can I eat?
Chicago (June 8, 2022) – Every 23 seconds, someone in the U.S. is diagnosed with diabetes1. Egglife Foods, the disruptive food company that uses eggs to transform ordinarily carb-heavy foods, announced a $100,000 commitment to champion wellness and show its support of individuals with special diets, including those living with diabetes, by partnering with the American Diabetes Association (ADA) and Beyond Type 1. With their latest campaign, egglife® wrap hacks, Egglife highlights ways people living with diabetes can use egglife egg white wraps to reimagine their favorite foods that typically feel off limits after being diagnosed.
As part of Egglife’s partnership with the ADA, the brand will sponsor the ADA’s summer camps and campers throughout the country. At ADA’s camps, campers learn how to choose foods that work with their eating plans to improve their independence and diabetes management while enjoying a traditional summer camp experience. In addition, Egglife and Beyond Type 1 will be partnering on digital content that highlights food solutions and general education for those living with diabetes.
“Managing diabetes is often overwhelming and it can be stressful trying to figure out what you should or should not eat,” said Dan Bieritz, Executive Director for the ADA Illinois and Wisconsin Markets. “This partnership with Egglife helps us highlight safe, simple and delicious ways those living with diabetes can ease some of this extra pressure and still enjoy their favorite meals.”
egglife® original egg white wraps proudly participate in the ADA’s Better Choices for Life program. Participants must meet specific nutrition guidelines designed for individuals managing diabetes. Made with simple ingredients, egglife egg white wraps allow you to reimagine pasta, pizza, sandwiches and more. To help others unlock limitless recipe possibilities, Egglife released a free digital cookbook of delicious wrap hacks that showcase how egglife wraps can turn any food favorite into a better-for-you meal or snack.
“Egglife Foods was born out of our founder’s kitchen due to her own need of healthy, low-carb and low sugar alternatives that taste good, so helping individuals with dietary restrictions is part of our ethos,” said David Kroll, CEO at Egglife Foods. “When people are diagnosed with diabetes, one of the first questions they ask is ‘What can I eat?’ Food can suddenly feel restricting and stressful. Egglife wants to be a solution to that problem. We’re grateful to be partnering with the ADA and Beyond Type 1 to empower individuals with diabetes to navigate their dietary needs with confidence.”
Egglife is encouraging consumers to get involved in the campaign by engaging with the free digital cookbook at Tasteofhome.com/sponsored/egglife. Each view of the digital cookbook during the month of June will trigger a donation of $1 to the ADA summer camp financial aid fund, up to $15,000.
To continue the brand’s commitment, Egglife will also be sponsoring Beyond Type Run – the Beyond Type 1 New York City marathon team – leading up to American Diabetes Month® and the NYC marathon in November.
