We are no longer cooking with peanut oil.

As of August 2022, we returned to cooking in 100% expeller pressed, high oleic sunflower oil. Because our chips have a 6-month shelf life, none of our chips anywhere should contain peanut oil as of February 2023. At this point, any chips sold through this website will be fresh from our factory and will not contain peanut oil.

A Note about Peanut Allergies:

The FDA does not consider refined peanut oil to be an allergen. The refining process removes the peanut proteins that are responsible for most allergic responses. According to a scholarly article published through PubMed (a database of the National Institutes of Health), "It has been shown, in well-designed studies, that refined peanut oil can be safely consumed by the vast majority of peanut-allergic individuals."* This necessary measure will allow us to continue supplying you with a safe, allergy-conscious, non-GMO product that maintains its highest quality and exceptional taste.
