SunButter LLC has began dry roasting sunflower kernel on new, top of the line roasting equipment to provide an improved taste and quality. SunButter Sunflower Butter will now be produced in one continuous process from field to table that will ensure a fresh roasted flavour, improved product consistency and a finished product that is free from all of the top eight food allergens. SunButter produced on the new equipment will arrive on store shelves in the spring of 2016, and the packages will carry a 'Now Soy Free' burst.
SunButter is the leading sunflower butter and alternative to peanut butter. It is enjoyed by people with peanut, tree nut, and other common food allergies, as well as those seeking a healthy alternative to peanut butter. Justin LaGosh, SunButter Director of Sales and Marketing said, "The new production process allows us to improve our fresh roasted flavour while also ensuring consistency in our texture and colour in every batch. Because the new roasting equipment will be solely dedicated to SunButter, we can guarantee that SunButter is free from the top eight food allergens, including soy, which is critical for families with food allergies and schools seeking a peanut free, school safe protein-rich menu option. SunButter is a solution to help schools become peanut aware and avoid serious allergic reactions in school."
The company advises consumers with food allergies to read labels carefully. SunButter has always been free from seven of the top eight food allergens including peanut and tree nuts, but only product with new packaging is free from the top eight. All SunButter products are clearly labeled for common food allergens.
