ALLERGEN INFORMATION AND FACTS

DOES WFC OFFER PRODUCTS THAT ARE FREE FROM NUTS AND GLUTEN?

WFC recognizes that food allergies are a serious concern – especially among children. It is important that we offer a large variety of product options that are free of the most common allergens.

WHAT ARE WFC’S EFFORTS TO ENSURE THAT PRODUCTS LABELED FREE OF A PARTICULAR ALLERGEN DO NOT CONTAIN TRACE AMOUNTS OF THAT SPECIFIED ALLERGEN?

We monitor all product ingredients and adhere to strict product labeling standards. WFC stands by 100% accuracy in our product labeling. Each product is identified and listed in compliance with the current food labeling requirements. We sample and test ingredients from our suppliers on a regular basis to ensure reliability and consistency.


GLUTEN-FREE Q & A

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE GLUTEN-FREE?

Gluten is a protein complex found in wheat. A gluten-free diet is a diet free of any products made with wheat. By FDA standards, foods containing less than or equal to 20 ppm are considered gluten-free foods.

WHO IS AFFECTED BY GLUTEN ALLERGENS?

Currently, approximately 18 million Americans suffer from gluten sensitivity (either a gluten sensitivity or Celiac’s disease).


PEANUT-FREE Q & A

WHAT DOES IT REALLY MEAN WHEN WE SAY A PRODUCT IS PEANUT-FREE?

We are currently a peanut-free facility, we do not produce items that contain peanuts, and we do not allow peanuts or peanut by-products to be brought into the facilities. We take the necessary precautions to ensure that we remain a peanut-free facility.

HOW CAN WE BE A PEANUT-FREE FACILITY, DON’T WE PRODUCE ITEMS WITH NUTS?

Peanuts are not the same as tree nuts (almonds, cashews, walnuts, etc.), which grow on trees. There is no proven correlation between peanut allergens and other nut allergens.

WHO IS AFFECTED BY PEANUT ALLERGENS?

An allergy to peanuts is one of the most common food allergies. A peanut allergy currently affects approximately 1 million Americans.

HOW WILL WE BENEFIT FROM BEING A PEANUT-FREE FACILITY?

Due to health concerns and the risk of allergic reactions in children, many schools have become peanut-free zones. WFC feels it is in our best interest to do the same. Becoming a peanut-free facility and labeling our products as such will eliminate restrictions and enable more options and opportunities for our customers, providing you with a competitive advantage.
