These #NewFoodFinds offer some exciting options for those who are managing peanut or tree nut allergies.
The number of alternatives to peanut butter is rising, keeping up with the increase in children with allergies.
This growing number of food options is good news for the food allergic. It’s also good for families without allergies, if they attend schools and activities with “no nut” policies.
In addition to Sunbutter, the first sunflower seed butter widely available for a number of years, two new companies now offer seed butter alternatives.
Here are the latest options:
• Gerbs Seed Butters – Gerbs has introduced Super 5 Seed Butter.
Ingredients: Ground & Buttered Raw Pumpkin Seed Kernels, Sunflower Seed Kernels, Brown Flax Seeds, Black Chia Seeds, and Hemp Seed Kernels, Sunflower Oil.
Other options in Gerbs’ line of seed butters include different varieties of Pumpkin Seed Butter, Sunflower Seed Butter, Flax Seed Butter, and Hemp Seed Butter.
All of Gerbs’ seed butters are free from the “Top 8” allergens as well as sesame and mustard. They are also 100% natural, vegan, Kosher parve, and have no chemicals, artificial additives or preservatives. They are handmade in small batches on dedicated “allergen-friendly” equipment.
• Good Luck Chuck – Good Luck Chuck introduced a new line of sunflower seed butters. There are three flavors: Original Chuck Sunflower Seed Butter, Chocolate Sunflower Seed Butter, and Spicy Sriracha Sunflower Seed Butter.
