ATCHISON, KAS. — Inclusion Technologies, L.L.C. has introduced a line of allergen-free Bits-O-Flavor flakes that are free from what the Food and Drug Administration considers the eight major food allergens: milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts (walnuts, almonds, cashews, pistachios and pecans, for example), wheat, soy, fish and shellfish. These eight foods account for 90% of all food-allergic reactions in the United States.
The new customized flakes come in the following colors and flavors: apple cinnamon, cinnamon, maple, orange, lemon, apple, bacon, blueberry, peach, banana, cherry, raspberry and strawberry.
“Our newly refurbished SQF Level 3 facility is already a dedicated nut-free facility,” said Dennis Reid, vice-president of marketing and business development. “So making this new line of allergen-free flavor flakes is a natural extension for our business in offering customized ingredients that address the needs of the ever expanding food allergy and intolerance market.”Inclusion Technologies will showcase Bits-O-Flavor flakes at the Institute of Food Technologists’ annual meeting and food exposition July 17-19 in Chicago.
