Update to Safe Snack Guide and allergence

As the kids head back to school (yay!), we’ve made a number of updates to the Safe Snack Guide – our catalog of snacks that are free of peanuts, tree nuts and (mostly) eggs – and Allergence, our interactive product screening service where you can research EXACTLY how products are manufactured with respect to the 11 allergens we track including sesame, mustard and gluten.

New Members of our Manufacturer Partnership

We welcome seven new members to the SnackSafely.com Manufacturer Partnership, now numbering over 60 companies that provide us with significantly more information regarding the potential for allergen cross-contact than the FDA requires. All ship nationwide.

These companies use coconut ingredients (considered a tree nut by the FDA) so their products are not eligible for inclusion in the Safe Snack Guide, though you can find them in Allergence for diets where coconut is not a concern:
