gluten-free Nuts

Hi,

 

I am interested in buying nonGMO and gluten-free nuts and found this site. I am wondering if others have ever purchased products from it.

https://nuts.com/gluten-free

Thanks!

Looks good for gluten free, even has certifications. My issue is they all come from a peanut facility.

While on this topic anyone know where I can get reasonably priced, cashews, pistachios, macadamia nuts etc. that are Gluten, peanut, soy, and dairy free? I always find ones made in the same facility as or over $9 a lb.  Pretty much why I have been sticking to almonds, coconut, pecans and seeds -_- . I miss the others honestly.

I have some nuts.com bags in my freezer now!  Yes, I use them.  Gives me piece of mind for sure.  I do purchase other nuts from Costco, but not the ones labeled that they are produced in a shared facility with wheat.   I also take the time to contact nut companies and inquire about how they process their nuts.  Usually, those companies just process the just-harvested nut and do not manufacture any flavored nuts.  

I like ordering and shipping nuts.com orders to my parent's house in Georgia.  Reduces the amount of time for shopping and doing gluten research while on vacation.  

Do not forget that this is nut season.  I buy bulk, on sale from the grocery store (in the shell) and freeze them too.  Wash and crack them open.  No worries about cross contamination.  Kind of slows down nut consumption for those in my family who tend to over eat!

I and many others do Nuts.com. Great company! Try their goji squares, you'll swallow your tongue.

Ennis, I have no answer on cashews and since pistachios always come with the shell split, I have no answer on those either HOWEVER, Nuts.com has macadamia nuts in the shell so you could get those & you could even wash them off before cracking them open so you made sure to eliminate any peanut residue on the shell. I must warn you though that the suckers are very difficult to crack. You can't do it with a nutcracker. Here are some methods:

As for me, I throw the nut on a hard surface to get the inside loose, you can shake it near your ear & listen for the rattle. Then I go to the joint seam in the concrete driveway, place the nut in the joint with the "navel" up & whack it with a hammer.

gluten-free Nuts

Are you saying you are one or we are?  Sorry had to ask. :)

I agree with Nuts.com.  I've ordered from them and had no problems.  They tend to put cryptic messages on their packaging though so it may be while before you can get to opening it.

Where do you get your coconut? I've been trying to find safe unsweetened coconut and haven't been able to find anything other than products from questionable sources. Thanks!

Unsweetened coconut flakes, toasted pieces, and de fatted flakes I use Let's go Organic from where ever is cheaper at the time, normally nab it on sale at my local grocers. For flour I stick to Nutivia Organic coconut flour as I normal find it on health sites for under $10 for 3lbs and tend to add it to everything for a thickening agent, cooking flour, fat/fiber source in shakes and icecream, etc.

    I cannot expound on the factual information listed in previous posts. I can, however, encourage you to follow your instincts as the mom, but also caution you with the statement that it takes a lot of time to heal. My 12 year old daughter has...
    Sounds yummy.  I am trying a new recipe -  https://www.health.com/recipes/veggie-enchiladas-with-creamy-poblano-sauce  
    So first, nobody here has called you ignorant. Second, "What the animal, eats you eat" isn't correct, especially if you are implying that gluten fed animals mean that their meat would not be gluten-free. There is no research to back this up...
