Diamond Foods/emerald Nuts

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I wrote to Diamond foods to inquire about the cocoa roasted almonds -- a friend gave me a baggie of them, but I couldn't find the nutritional info and ingredients online. Here is their well-written response:

Thank you for your recent e-mail concerning gluten in Diamond Foods


The Emerald of California product line is produced and packaged at the

Diamond Foods processing facilities. Some of the Emerald snack nut

products contain gluten. They are as follows.

Emerald Honey Dijon Glazed Walnuts 'n Cashews

Emerald Backyard Grill Glazed Walnuts 'n Almonds

Emerald Honey Roasted Peanuts

Emerald Chocolate Brownie Walnuts

Emerald Dry Roasted Walnuts

Emerald Wasabi Dry Roasted Peanuts

Emerald BBQ Dry Roasted Peanuts

Emerald Chipotle Dry Roasted Peanuts

Emerald Berry Blend Trail Mix

Emerald Breakfast Blend Trail Mix

Emerald Tropical Blend Trail Mix

Diamond adheres to superior Good Food Manufacturing Practices, and all

processing lines are thoroughly cleaned between

packaging runs of the different Emerald products. However, there is no

way to be absolutely certain that our Emerald products

have not come in contact with gluten. Because of Diamond Food's concern

for those who have severe allergies, we want our

consumers to be fully informed so that they can make the appropriate

choices regarding using our products.

We appreciate your interest in our products.

You know, I read lists like that and I just can't help but thinking why in the world are they putting gluten ingredients in something like (non-flavored) dry roasted walnuts? That is insane. Thanks for posting that!

I crack my own nuts. It is tedious, but that way I can be sure that they are gluten free.

I became addicted to those chocolate almonds not long before I went gluten-free. I have a box of the snack pouches at the back of my cabinet waiting for me to become daring. I think I'll wait a while; I'm sure my mom won't argue with having a few extras added to her snack drawer.
