Don’t Go Nuts Earns Gluten-Free Certification
Don’t Go Nuts is excited to announce an expanded ability to serve free-from consumers through Gluten-Free certification from the Gluten Intolerance Group. Don’t Go Nuts products always have been safely peanut and tree nut free, and now this certification ensures its products serve gluten-free eaters as well.
While the company’s roasted soybean spreads have always been gluten free, earning the certification for its energy snack bars required changing oat suppliers to GF Harvest, a company known for serving celiac families with safely gluten-free foods.
“We feel connected to GF Harvest on such a personal level because their Forrest’s experience with celiac disease and resulting desire to develop safe foods is so similar to our Lily’s experience with nut allergies,” said Co-Founder and CEO Jane Pinto.
The next few months will be a period of transition for retailers, with some pre-GF products still on store shelves. Products without the GF symbol have the chance of a minute amount of gluten due to volunteer wheat in the previous supplier’s oats. All products purchased via the Don’t Go Nuts websiteare certified gluten free.
The GF certification means that Don’t Go Nuts products have under 10 parts per million of gluten, exceeding the FDA gluten-free standard of 20 PPM. All Don’t Go Nuts product also are certified organic and Kosher-dairy. No ingredients are genetically modified.
Don’t Go Nuts offers six flavors of energy snack bars (Blueberry Blast, Boogie Board Bash, Celestial Campout, Gorilla Power, Lift Service and Whitewater Chomp) and five flavors of roasted soybean spreads Chocolate, Cinnamon Sugar, Slightly Sweet, Lightly Sea Salted and Pure Unsalted.
