Peanut Free Baking
If you have a peanut allergy, or you cook for someone who does, peanut free baking can be a serious challenge. Not only do many favorite baked goods contain peanuts, many common baking ingredients–flour, baking powder, baking soda, other ingredients–are subject to cross-contamination and may not be safe for peanut free baking.
Food labeling laws are more reliable for peanut free baking than they used to be but they are not entirely trustworthy, even if you have used the same product before.
In short, does peanut free truly mean peanut free?
I.M. Healthy SoyNut Butter is a trustworthy peanut-free product for peanut butter substitutes in peanut free baking. It's great-tasting and more nutritious than peanut butter in many ways.
