Baking Environment Free From the Top 9 Food Allergens
All of our snacks are prepared with great care. We started the company because Co-Founder Rob Dalton has a severe, life-threatening allergy to peanuts and tree nuts. His safety and the safety of our consumers, is our number one priority. In order to provide safety for those with food allergies and the best product quality for all, we built out our own dedicated bakery in Boston. We never allow the following ingredients* into our bakery:
- Tree nuts
* We advise customers to read labels carefully. In addition our products are vegan, gluten-free and Non-GMO project verified.
We have gone to great lengths to ensure the safety of our ingredient supply chain. Wherever possible, we source ingredients from single-source suppliers to reduce the risk of cross-contamination with allergens (the majority of our ingredients are in this category). For example, our flax supplier only grows and processes flax, our oat supplier only grows and processes oats. Our oats are harvested by an oat-only combine and processed in a gluten-free, oat-only facility.
88 Acres ensures product safety for those with food allergies by enforcing strict allergen-safety protocols. Each ingredient supplier is thoroughly vetted. Allergen and gluten documentation, and Certificates of Analysis are collected for each ingredient. Our bakery is certified gluten-free through the Gluten-free Certification Organization. We bake our snacks under strict regulations and perform routine rapid tests to ensure our products are gluten-free.
