Mauna Loa Macademia Nuts

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know the gluten free status of these? I'm thinking that they should be okay. The cross contact warning for them states that they were manufactured on shared equipment with peanuts and tree nuts, no mention of possible cross contact with anything else. The only ingredients are macadamia nuts and salt.

 

I think that they are technically a Hershey's product, though, and I don't see any mention of them on Hershey's gluten free list? Does anybody have any more information on them?

I have eaten that brand without issues. There is another much cheaper brand at Costco, but It mentions that it is proceessed in a facility with wheat, tree nuts, peanuts, etc. Not worth the risk or the hassle of finding out if it is safe.

Good to know, thanks! I figured that since it bothered to post a cross contamination warning for peanuts and other tree nuts, that if it was processed in a common facility with wheat, it would say so.

I think that we need a resource sheet for all the safe nut sources. Sometimes finding out information on nuts can be tricky. I'm still trying to find out if Sincerely Nuts company makes celiac safe products...

The Mauna Loa company replied and said that none of their products are classified as gluten free. That's probably a liability prevention measure or something. Since they are apparently not made on shared equipment with wheat, I'm fine with using them.
