All of our products are completely FREE from the top 8 allergens: that means no tree nuts, peanuts, gluten/grains, dairy, eggs, soy, fish, or shellfish.
However, our Crunch Puffs are not Keto or Paleo because they only contain 20-40% fewer carbohydrates than similar snacks, and they are made with lentils.
Sacha Inchi seeds are special little super-seeds that taste, feel, and act similar to nuts, but without the allergy! They are nutrient-dense (high in protein, fiber, & healthy fats) making them the perfect ingredient to include in all of our snacks.
We source Sacha Inchi seeds from our supplier and farming partner in Thailand and Laos.
We do not use emulsifiers so the sacha inchi oil does naturally separate. We recommend storing the jar on its top overnight occasionally. We also suggest that consumers fully stir the butter each time its used OR you can spin the jar on a flat surface a few times to mix it up!
Unlike your average grain-based puff snack, our crunch puffs are completely gluten/grain free. The ingredients we use combine to create a denser, crunchier version of your typical puff snack - so that's why we call 'em crunch puffs!
Great question! Where do we start?
2. Free from all top 8 allergens (that means safe for kids + school approved!)
