Nut Allergies

The Good Bean’s Roasted Chickpea Snacks are nut free* and made in a dedicated nut-free facility.

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.
