Allergy Friendly Food Manufacturer Goes Gluten-Free


Nonuttin Foods, May 2007 – When the Elliott family founded Nonuttin’ Foods back in 2002, in honor of their peanut allergic child, they never could have imagined the rapidly expanding market that lay before them.  Their first product line included three granola bar flavors, each free of peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, and dairy.  The food allergy-friendly snacks were an instant hit.

Noting the strong demand, Nonuttin’ has continued to expand their product line at a record pace, while improving their already high quality ingredients. 
In November of 2006, cherry fruit chips, sulfite-free dried apples, mini semi-sweet chocolate chips, 70% dark chocolate chunks, and vanilla cinnamon granola clusters were added to the roster.
In February of 2007 two nut/peanut-free trail mixes, Energy Explosion and Hiker’s Delight (one with raisins and one without) expanded the Nonuttin’ product line further.
As if these additions weren’t enough, in late April Nonuttin’ made another big move.  They implemented new gluten-free formulas, and became the first company to begin using pure, gluten tested oats and oat bran in granola products.  The Nonuttin’ facility is now completely wheat and gluten-free.
The switch to new formulas for all of their original granola bars and vanilla cinnamon granola clusters also marked the introduction of GMO free ingredients and the ability to meet “all natural” requirements.
With their processes and ingredients in order, and the first annual “Food Allergy Awareness Week” upon us, the Elliott family felt it was appropriate to release one more product in honor of the occasion.  This week, a new flavor of Nonuttin’ granola bars was launched, double chocolate chunk with 70% dark chocolate chunks and organic free trade cocoa. 
Nonuttin' snacks are an excellent option for lunch boxes.  They are very appealing to children, and suitable for schools with a peanut-free policy.  To order any of the offerings from Nonuttin’ Foods, visit their website or call (866) 714-5411.
