Ep 3: Dr. Trill Paullin, Molecular Biologist and CEO & Founder of Free to Feed
In this episode of The Food Allergy Talk Podcast, Lisa Horne interviews Dr. Trill Paullin, Molecular Biologist and CEO & Founder of Free to Feed.
Dr. Trill, as she is well-known, is a Molecular Biologist and mother to two beautiful daughters who had severe infant food reactions to proteins transferred from her diet to breast milk. After processing the painful fact that she could hurt her children through breastfeeding, she started researching how to produce breast milk they could properly digest.
Dr. Trill discovered that many parents experience the same troubling situation. She wanted to create a place for parents to find answers to their questions about infant food reactivity and empower them to reach their feeding goals.
Free to Feed was born to provide the research, resources, and support she wished they had early on. They have started this mission by creating an annual subscription to empower parents through their food allergy journey, a tracking app built specifically for this space, personal consultations, as well as an allergy friendly post-natal multivitamin.
Parents can take a free quiz to see if their infant is likely experiencing food reactivity. https://quiz.tryinteract.com/#/61e8581a2548d600180ca799
Once you complete the quiz you also receive a complimentary 40 minute deep dive course into infant food allergy symptoms by Dr. Trill.

Welcome to Food Allergy Talk
I’m Lisa Horne of Food Allergy P.I., host of the Food Allergy Talk podcast. I’m a holistic nutritionist, cookbook author, food allergy community advocate and blogger. I am married with 5 children ages 4, 6, 9, 11 and 14. We live on a small ranch in southeastern Arizona, where I homeschool all 5 of our children.
I got involved in the food allergy community through support outreach and fundraising in 2009, following my oldest child’s first anaphylactic reaction. Later in 2012 I initiated legislation to allow for stock epinephrine to be available for all students in Arizona schools. Later in 2013, that bill became State law. In 2018, I began focusing my energy on reaching out to the food allergy community through my blog, Food Allergy P.I., where I share my own experience caring for food allergies, travel, dining out, product finds, and recipe creation. Most recently, in 2021 I authored The Everything Nut Allergy Cookbook.
