How To Find Peanut-Free Bakeries That'll Make You Go Yum

For many people with peanut allergies, baked goods present one of the most significant risks. Even if a recipe does not contain peanuts, if the food is baked in a facility that also handles peanut products, there is a possibility of cross-contamination due to the same surfaces and utensils being used for both recipes. Trying to locate a peanut-free bakery is important for those with peanut allergies.

Practically every pre-packaged baked good is potentially cross-contaminated with peanuts and tree nuts. Most store-bought baked goods carry a label warning of this potential. Cross-contamination is also possible with any baked goods coming out of a bakery that also makes peanut butter cookies, brownies, and other popular recipes containing peanuts. Unfortunately, many people suffering from severe peanut allergies decide to avoid bakeries entirely due to this possibility.

If you're looking for a source for everyday sandwich bread or special-occasion treats, search out a peanut-free bakery. These are bakeries that do not use peanut ingredients in any recipe. Luckily, there are peanut-free bakeries found in many major cities. Online shopping is another choice, especially if you're looking for specialty baked goods that may not be found in every bakery. Peanut Free Planet and Divvies, two popular sources for peanut-free baked goods, both sell online.

If you can't find what you want from a peanut-free bakery, consider baking it at home. With peanut-free chocolate chips, flour, sugar, eggs, and other baking supplies, you can rest assured that the treats you create have not been contaminated by peanut residue.
