GMPs are enforced in the United States by the US FDA, under Section 501(B) of the 1938 Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21USC351). The regulations use the phrase “current good manufacturing practices” (cGMP) to describe these guidelines.
The Good Bean brand follows the guidelines and principles of Good Manufacturing Practices.
In practical terms, GMPs means precautions are taken to prevent cross-contact of materials during storage, handling and processing of foods, especially where shared production equipment is used. We make sure the equipment is cleaned and tested with the utmost care for food allergens before production of our snacks.
Our chickpea snacks and bean chips are produced in a nut-free facility. Our bars are currently produced in a facility that also processes tree nuts, and peanuts.
Both facilities also process, soy, wheat, and dairy, so we cannot and do not claim absolute clinical elimination of common allergens.
If you are highly sensitive and are ever in doubt, remember to make Safety First your credo.
