The Good Bean’s Roasted Chickpea Snacks are nut free and made in a dedicated nut-free facility.
Our Fruit & No-Nut Bars contain no nuts, but they are manufactured in facilities that also process peanuts and tree nuts. We follow Good Manufacturing Practices to ensure as little cross-contamination as possible, by segregating ingredient storage, deep cleaning the production lines, and periodically testing with microbiological swabs. More details here.
Nuts are full of fat
Allergies are not the only reason to avoid nuts. By keeping them out of our bars we have 40%-60% less fat than other leading fruit & nut bars. Our roasted chickpea snacks have only 2g of fat per serving.
Is coconut a nut?
Coconuts are not nuts, they’re drupes. A drupe is a fruit in which an outer fleshy part surrounds a shell with a seed inside. Coffee, olives and apricots are also drupes.
However the FDA mandates that coconut be considered a tree nut for labeling purposes. Available medical literature contains documentation of a small number of allergic reactions to coconut; most occurred in people who were not allergic to other tree nuts.
