We’re pleased to announce the latest update to the Safe Snack Guide and our Allergence product screening service.
The Safe Snack Guide is a catalog of over 1000 foods, all free of peanuts and tree nuts with hundreds free of the Top 8 allergens. The Guide is used by thousands of schools and tens of thousands of parents nationwide to help keep allergens out of the classroom and the home.
Allergence is our interactive service that shows you precisely how these products are manufactured with respect to the 11 allergens we track: the Top 8 (peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, milk, soy, wheat, fish, crustacean shellfish) as well as sesame, mustardvandvgluten. All allergen information is provided directly by our partner manufacturers, never from the label.
Aside from many new product additions from our existing partners, we’ve introduced products from four new members of our Manufacturer Partnership. Please welcome:
- Sweetworks – Manufacturers with a 60 year history of dedication to providing customers with the best in premium chocolates and creative confections. Their Sixlets line is gluten-free, nut-free and has only 30 calories per 8-ball tube! They’re the perfect worry-free treat!
- Golden Cannoli – Their dads made the first Golden Cannoli in the back room of their bakery over 40 years ago in Somerville, Massachusetts. Now their 2nd generation continues their family cannoli tradition but with a creative new twist…Introducing the Original Cannoli Chips! These chips are just plain fun, and a great new way to enjoy cannoli.
- Ozery Bakery – A family-owned bakery founded on the promise to make superior quality bread from real, premium ingredients without compromise. Combining traditional methods, international influences, carefully selected ingredients and a modern sensibility, Ozery Bakery’s fresh-baked, healthy bread fuels your life in a way that simply feels good.
- Know Allergies – After an anaphylactic episode on a ski lift in Washington State, the founder of Know Allergies had a dream for a safer snack where allergen warnings were clear and up-front. That dream became a reality with the introduction of a line of delicious bars made with high quality ingredients.
With much sadness, we also announce that one of our earliest partners – Sweet Alexis Bakery – has ceased operations. We wish them well in their next venture.
