Allergy Info:

Broad Beans themselves are a legume. They are not a peanut or a tree nut. Once they are roasted they have a similar texture and flavor of a nut. So by themselves they are non-allergenic. We produce and manufacture in a facility that is peanut free and nut free. So, we are a NON-NUT facility.

We follow strict guidelines that require our machinery be washed and sanitized before and after each time we make our roasted fava beans. These procedures are called Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP).

We also perform random and scheduled tests during production and packaging to insure that we are gluten free as well as monitor other allergens.

These processes are in place to ensure no cross-contamination of any allergen in our plant.

Here’s a look at the fiber content of some common foods. Read nutrition labels to find out exactly how much fiber is in your favorite foods. Women should try to eat at least 21 to 25 grams of fiber a day, while men should aim for 30 to 38 grams a day.
