Question About Planter's Nut Products
0

10 posts in this topic

I was wondering why Planters nuts are said to be safe and are not produced in a gluten containing facility, yet when I look at their trail mixes, it says that those were processed in a gluten containing facility. Is it possible that their nuts and their trail mixes are produced in 2 separate facilities, the latter one containing gluten? I heard their nuts were safe but seeing this cross contamination issue with their trail mixes is making me think twice with their nuts...

They seem to be a Kraft product and they are good about labeling. You might give them a call tomorrow & see what they say.

most likely it's two different facilities, plenty of companies have the same set up going on...i don't think i've seen anybody get sick from a kraft product and i've had their nuts plenty of times with no issues...if they were made in a facility with gluten, it would say it, just like how the trail nuts do

Planters is indeed a Kraft brand, and Kraft will clearly list any source of gluten in the ingredients, no matter how small the amount.

we buy Planters and have had no problems. Can't believe how many brands of nuts have wheat in them. What's with that! :angry:

*cough* uh...actually, lemme raise my hand on that one. ;) I have trouble with Kraft brands, usually. I'm more sensitive than most, however. My father and brother are less sensitive and seem to eat them without trouble.

see, my problem is that I don't have any reaction when I'm glutened. Which is great, but also a problem because I don't know if I continue to accidentally consume gluten which is preventing me from healing. I will get my blood rechecked in October in Chicago, but 3 months ago, my antibodies were still very elevated, despite being on the gluten free diet for a year.

and, yes, I hate it that nuts are all processed in facilities with wheat! Very annoying. I can't seem to find any nuts in my town that are safe besides Planters (which only have limited types of nuts, mostly salted). I just make an order from nutsonline.com but they were SO expensive. Urghh.
