Can Natural and Artificial flavoring contain peanuts?
i have no real information--hopefully someone here does.
i remember watching an Oprah show about food allergies and the expert label lady said it could.
i guess it's one of the "call the company" ingredients.
I have heard that natural flavor can contain eggs. In fact something I picked up the other day said it had natural flavor and beside it in parentheses it said eggs. I guess the other person is correct, call the manufacturer. Better to be safe than sorry!
According to the new labeling law (not exactly "new" anymore) if there are any of the top 8 allergens in the product AT ALL including in hidden places like natural or artificial flavorings, it must be disclosed on the label.
That is a long sentence.
eta this applies only to foods. Beauty products can apparently put allergens in the fragrance and it's ok for them to not label for it.
Vaccines can contain a multitude of food protein from the adjuvant and the culture medium. This is a protected trade secret and does not appear on the package insert. I believe that vaccinations are the main cause of peanut allergies.
