This #NewFoodFind is exciting for those allergic to peanuts and soy. In January 2016, SunButter® LLC began dry roasting their sunflower kernels on new top of the line roasting equipment. SunButter Sunflower Butter will now be produced in one continuous process from field to table. This will ensure a finished product that is free from all of the top 8 food allergens.
SunButter produced on the new equipment will arrive on store shelves in the spring of 2016. The packages will carry a 'Now Soy Free' burst.
"Because the new roasting equipment will be solely dedicated to SunButter, we can guarantee that SunButter is free from the top-8 food allergens, including soy, which is critical for families with food allergies and schools seeking a peanut free, school safe protein-rich menu option," said Justin LaGosh, SunButter director of sales and marketing. "SunButter is a solution to help schools become peanut aware and avoid serious allergic reactions in school."
The company advises consumers with food allergies to read labels carefully. SunButter has always been free from seven of the top 8 food allergens including peanut and tree nuts. Only the product with new packaging is free from the top eight. All SunButter products are clearly labeled for common food allergens.
