Kitchology, home of 160 million Americans with dietary needs, joins Maven


...such as vegan, gluten-free and food allergy aware content, has moved to the new digital media network Maven (ticker symbol MVEN).

Kitchology is thrilled to be a part of the Maven community. It is a unique melting pot of ideas and topics that impact the everyday and the everyone,” said Kitchology Founder Iris Sherman. “The rich voices of award-winning journalists, best-selling authors, analysts and emerging bloggers build on one another like nowhere else.”

Sherman, a mother of children with severe food allergies, was inspired to create a recipe book the whole family could enjoy. In her research, she discovered that 160 million Americans live with special dietary requirements and she determined they needed their own community of support, news and recipes.

A patent-pending digital wellness platform, Kitchology aims to improve meal and snack time for people with special dietary needs by providing the tools to create safe, delicious recipes everyone can enjoy.

“The passion that Iris and her Kitchology team bring to their channel is exactly what we’re looking for as we build the Maven coalition,” said Maven CEO James Heckman. “With their expertise and our tools to help them build community, we believe their large and diverse audience will grow ever more engaged.”

Dozens of award-winning journalists, best-selling authors, top analysts, important causes and foundations are bringing their organizations to Maven’s coalition of elite content channels.

Maven is an expert-driven, group media network, whose innovative platform serves, by invitation-only, a coalition of professional, independent channel partners. By providing broader distribution, greater community engagement and efficient advertising and membership programs, Maven enables partners to focus on the key drivers of their business: creating, informing, sharing, discovering, leading and interacting with the communities and constituencies they serve.

Based in Seattle, Maven is publicly traded under the ticker symbol MVEN. The executive team and operational board members include digital media pioneers James Heckman and Josh Jacobs and technology innovators Bill Sornsin and Ben Joldersma. For more insight, head to
