Please note that some of the products we use may have been manufactured in a factory where they also manufacture other products containing allergens however we will always list this on our product pages. Please enquire if you have any concerns via our Contact Us page by Clicking Here .
Factories that manufacture food grade products have to follow a minimum of GMP or Good Manufacturing Practice and are regulated by BSi (British Standards Institution) and or FDA (USA Food & Drug Administration) these authorises frequently audit the manufacturers to ensure they are meeting the set guidelines when manufacturing any food product and if they fail to comply with the regulations set out, the company can be forced to recall their products and potentially their business can be shut down immediately.
With knowing this you can feel comforted that the utmost is done to avoid cross contamination with allergen free products and products containing allergens.
What Is An Allergen?
An allergen can be simplified as an antigen that your body creates an immune response to and then tries to fight off the antigen, continuous exposure to these allergens can decrease your immunity and lower your overall health. There are many reasons to factor in when talking about allergens. Allergens can come in the form of household products such as cleaning agents, to dust and in our particular industry, Food.
What can you do?
There is good news, with a growing exposure to allergens scientists have now developed a way to test if you are allergic to an array of substances, please see your local GP for Allergy Testing or do a Google search. It is better to be tested to further gain full control of your health.
We are proud to offer those suffering with an intolerance to allergens an opportunity to enjoy the sweet things in life.
