Since being diagnosed with Celiac Disease, I’m constantly amazed by the odd variety of things that make my day just a little bit better. Things like:
- Finding Kettle brand chips in airport or hotel gift shops (great emergency gluten free travel food!)
- Being able to have ‘normal’ cereal for breakfast. Like Arrowhead Mills Buckwheat Maple Flakes
- Finding out that one owners of my favorite restaurant, Crave in Mount Pleasant, is a celiac too and she has the kitchen trained
- @AuntRissy brings home some Pamela’s Pecan Shortbread cookies form the store
- The hotel where I’m staying has an omelette bar
Today, my celiac joy was looking at the label on a container of Emerald Nut Cashews.
This is a great example of how food labeling should be done.
ALLERGY INFORMATION: Manufactured on shared equipment. May contain other tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, soy, milk or sesame seeds. May contain shell pieces.
As a customer (and celiac sufferer) I really appreciate the information placed on the label. This way, I have the information I need to make an informed decision about whether they are safe for me to eat.
Thank you Emerald Nut Company! Love the cashews!
Footnote: I eat these anyway and have not had a problem with cross contamination.
