Peanut Free Cookies

If you are living a peanut free life you may have wondered what foods are safe to eat. Are cookies on grocery store shelves safe if they don't contain peanuts? What about those warning labels like “may contains” or “processed in”?

What you eat depends largely upon your comfort level. Many cookies on grocery store shelves really are safe to eat because some manufacturers go to great lengths to clean their equipment. However, most allergists warn against consuming items with warning labels. A study revealed that up to 7% of items tested contained enough detectable peanut protein even though peanut was not a listed ingredient.

Luckily the food industry is taking allergies seriously and many manufacturers are going to great lengths to either manufacture their cookies in dedicated peanut free facilities or clean and allergen test their product lines.

Following are a list of just a few of the cookie manufacturers that go above and beyond to ensure their cookies are safe for those with peanut allergies. Some can be found on grocery store shelves, others can be ordered online.
