A list of products and brands that are free of the top 8 allergens AND made in a dedicated facility. Allergy friendly brands for baking, snacking, and more are included in this list.
Being a parent to a child with food allergies means that I can’t just run to the store and grab granola bars and cookies before a play date. (Obviously). I do make a lot of our snack and treat foods at home, using ingredients that are free of the top 8 allergens. However, sometimes there are things that I have to buy from the store, whether it is baking ingredients, granola, seeds, or convenience snack foods.
Since Baby Bee was diagnosed with his allergy, I have become VERY concerned with cross contamination. You would be surprised at the number of products that say, “made in a facility that also processes tree nuts”, or “made on equipment that is shared with tree nuts.”
I am very cautious about these products, and I don’t let Baby Bee eat them of course. Although it’s only been a few months since his diagnosis, I have been doing some research on products that are made in a dedicated allergen free facility. I have come up with a list of products that are free of the top 8 allergens: milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, and soy, and they are made in a facility that does not process any of these allergens. This is not a sponsored post, I just wanted to gather a list of products to share with you.
Disclaimer: I am not a healthcare professional. Please check with your doctor if you are unsure if these products are safe for you or your family. Always read labels, as ingredients and manufacturing processes change. This information is current as far as I understand it from the websites of these companies.
I will update this list as I find more products that are made in dedicated allergen free facility. If you know of any, please let me know in the comments!
