About Food Allergies
Understand What "Allergen Free" Really Means
It’s a catch-all phrase that can be confusing. There is no official definition of this term. Most people use it to say that foods are made without certain ingredients. The tricky part is making sure the product you are considering is truly without your concerning allergens. That’s why on Dr. Lucy's labels they say “made without milk, eggs, wheat, gluten, peanuts and tree nuts.”
Otherwise, Dr. Lucy's has noticed that “allergen free” usually refers to the eight major food allergens: milk, eggs, wheat, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, fish and shellfish. Ninety percent of people with food allergies are allergic to at least one of these. However, it’s important to know that some people are allergic to other foods; for example: sesame, corn, strawberries.
Another important thing is to know how a company ensures that their product is made without certain ingredients. At Dr. Lucy’s they have incorporated three key features into their Quality Program. First, they buy their raw materials from carefully selected producers. Thus they are starting with ingredients that are presumed to be without certain allergens. Then, they use the best available testing to make sure there are no detectable allergens from their list. Lastly, Dr. Lucy's doesn’t allow wheat, gluten, milk, eggs, peanuts or tree nuts into their bakery. So, they remove the chance of cross-contact during production. These three safeguards allow them to provide the highest quality foods made without certain ingredients that you can buy.
Know Your Problem Foods
Know your problem foods and any tricky alternate food names, similar allergens or routine contaminants.
Did you know that whey is made from milk? And, that spelt is so closely related to wheat it usually causes the same health problems? Or, did you know that some spices and grains are milled in situations where nut contamination is likely? Or that most oats produced in the U.S. are wheat-contaminated due to shared fields and machinery?
Lucy’s delicious cookies are made without the common food allergens --- wheat, milk, eggs, peanuts and tree nuts. Dr. Lucy's also tests for trace amounts of these allergens. In addition, their oats are certified “gluten free”. All of their products are made in a dedicated facility. Dr. Lucy's goal is to provide excellent foods that you can trust.
