Safe Snack Guide and Allergence: Three New Partners, 120+ New Products!


While you were lounging with your bare feet in the grass and a cool drink in your hand, we were hard at work vetting new products and welcoming new members to our Manufacturer Partnership!
The Safe Snack Guide is our catalog of over 1200 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, mustard, and gluten. All allergen information is provided directly by our partner manufacturers, never from the label.
