The Mono-Diglyceride Question
Oct. 24, 2012 By Candice BradstreetIn the past couple of months I have received several calls and emails concerned that our bars contained soy and/or corn due to mono-diglycerides. So I am here to clear up any confusion and to re-assure all of our customers that we are a dedicated facility that is free of soy and corn along with the other long list!
Our labels have "mono-diglycerides" included in the sunbutter ingredients. We no longer use that sunbutter and haven't for approximately six months, however, the FDA allows us to use up all of our film until our next production and then make the corrections. For that I am thankful due to not having to waste all of that film.
We did look into this issue of the mono-diglycerides in the sunbutter we used to use and the company assured us as well that there was not any soy in it nor corn.
I know that many say that it HAS to come from soy and corn, however, if you further look into it, many also state that by the time the glyceride is made there is no evidence of either of the proteins.
We now use a sunbutter that is purely sunflower seeds and salt. Nothing else is added.
We always do due diligence when it comes to our ingredients and what goes into our protein bars. Remember...for us it is personal...very personal.
We are always an open book and will share the confirmation from suppliers of our ingredients being clean from all of the top 10 allergens. So feel free to call us if you have any further questions!
