Or visit our Allergence product screening service and set up profiles for each family member with allergen restrictions.
We list over 3,000 products from 180+ responsible members of our Manufacturer Partnership who have signed on to provide detailed allergen processing information including shared line/facility information.
Why the Guides?
While US regulations require manufacturers to label when any of the Top 9 allergens are ingredients of a product, they do not have to disclose when those allergens are processed in the same line or facility as those products are manufactured. Warnings like “Manufactured in a facility that also processes peanuts” and “May contain traces of milk” are entirely voluntary; some manufacturers include them, some don’t, and some will warn for one allergen and not another.
Even a trace of an allergen can cause life-threatening reactions, hence the need for well-researched information that goes beyond what is required on the label: our guides.
How We Source Information for the Guides
SnackSafely.com partners with responsible manufacturers who agree to use our proprietary platform to disclose detailed processing information for each product in exchange for listings in our guides and our interactive Allergence product screening service. We then curate that product data for completeness and accuracy and use it to provide you with information you won’t find on the label or anywhere else.

Each guide is organized into 40+ categories of foods to help you find the products you’re looking for. Some example categories are:
- Ice Cream
- Cake & Muffins

Welcome New Partners

Jackson’s Chips — When their son Jackson was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disorder, their top priority was to find ways to ease his symptoms.
