I have dealt with you in the past and wanted to let you know that your gluten free translation cards are fantastic! We were in a busy street in the middle of Istanbul and wanted to have lunch on our way to visit Topkapi. I showed your gluten free card and ended up being shown by the owner by way of pointing what I could and could not have. When my meal came, it looked so good our friends ordered the same lunch. It also worked in Rhodes, Greece as the owner advised me they put flour in their rice which is most unusual for me. Thanks to your cards we are able to travel wherever we wish and have absolutely no problem with my gluten free diet. In fact, I feel that we are given superior treatment as the owner normally becomes involved and the cards are taken directly to the chef to confirm that the food is all right for me. I have told many people of your business and I hope they are using it to their advantage as I do.

Just wanted to let you know your food allergy translation cards were great for travelling in Hong Kong and Thailand. With a severe MSG food allergy (plus other food allergies) I wondered about the wisdom of travelling to Asia, but I had two weeks away and not one food problem. The great benefit was being able to tell the waiter to show the chef the food allergy card. Often the waiter would say, "Can do - without" But I would insist they show the chef the card, then the waiter would come back with a different story. They were then very concerned and kept checking that I would only eat from the 'safe' dishes.

We wanted to let you know how grateful we were to have my husband's food allergies translated into Spanish and Italian. We used your Italian food allergy cards constantly on our trip, as there were numerous occasion when English was not spoken. They were also a tremendous 'ice-breaker'... in one friendly Italian restaurant, the waiter (after he read all of the allergies) threw up his hands, said 'vino' and brought a bottle of wine saying that's all he could have!

I just wanted to tell you that the food allergy cards that we ordered worked just great. Everywhere that we went my husband would just show them his card and they took it to the person in charge and they checked to make sure that there was not any cottonseed oil in the products. It seems that Germany does not even use cottonseed oil but my husband said the cards were worth their weight in gold to him. So you see, you have a very good product that you are selling. I am sure it will help many other people in the same situation. You can use this letter as a testimonial if you like. We are very grateful to you. Again, thank you.

I have returned from my trip to Bangkok. The strongly worded food allergy cards were amazing. First, I asked the waiter if peanuts or peanut oil were used in their recipes. They usually said no. When I showed the waiters the strongly worded card, they paused, went to check with the cook and/or manager, and usually suggested a particular meal to eat. At most Thai restaurants I stuck with dessert. One restaurant was extremely accommodating, cooking my food from scratch with freshly washed pots and utensils. The SelectWisely cards were a life-saver!
