Just realized, with a bunch of us together, maybe we can help each other find safe food or share brands that we use regularly. :-)

So, again, starting off.

What works for us:
Field Day Mediterranean sea salt
Bariani Olive oil
Ancient Harvest Quinoa - in the 25 pound bags - grain for the 1 pound boxes are shipped to the USA and packaged here. The 25 pound bags are shipped straight from Bolivia.

What we're checking out:
Some beans ordered online from Rancho Gordo
Nuts in the shell, ordered online from anuts.com
Madhava agave nectar (makes me feel a little off, but might be okay for my daughter)

And that's it, really. Everything else is fresh food from our garden, local farmers, or local ranches.

It's taken us a little over a year to get here, and I'm still screwing it up a bit, because I am not sure all the time what's safe for us. My daughter may have some fructose issues (which will kill all agave nectar hopes, obviously). I might have a couple intolerances on top of allergies. We still get reactions, even on the above diet, where we only eat food from our own kitchen.

But it's slowly improving, so at least it seems to be going in the right direction. :)

sorry ... i realize this is a really old thread, but i am trying to find out if anuts.com has cross contamination issues.  the OP said they were checking it out ... and so am i.


i emailed anuts.com asking about gluten contamination and was told this in my first email:


 -------- Great question. I did a simple internet search on peanuts and they are gluten free. The roasted in shell peanuts are dry roasted so nothing is added to them.


i responded and asked the gentlemen - specifically - if the peanuts were processed on equipment that also processes wheat.  this is his reply:


---------- You will be buying them in bulk. That is how we sell them. So we use a scoop (that is washed) and we scoop the nuts into a zip lock bag. We do have dairy in our plant (and of course other nuts) but no wheat.


so i am no closer to getting an answer and they seem to be pretty clueless.  they also sell trail mix and flavored popcorns.  in my experience there is a high risk of cross contamination.


i have gotten glutened from ordering supposedly gluten free nuts from nuts.com so am very leery of placing an order with anuts.com.    


has anyone gotten a straight answer from anuts.com or spoken to anyone from there that really understands the issue?

Planter's. If there is any gluten they will be labeled. If they are processed in a facility that also processes gluten containing grains, it will be labeled. I eat their cashews and cocktail peanuts all the time.

I had communications with anuts in which they said that their facility if gluten free.  I looked at the ingredients in their trail mixes and flavored popcorn and I didn't see any gluten.  Your post does not specifically state that your contamination issues are with gluten only.  For extra assurance, you can buy in shell nuts.
