Almonds

Recommended Posts

I bought a bag of roasted almonds.  The ingredients list: "dry roasted almonds and sea salt," so the ingredient list itself is compliant.  However, it also says in another area on the bag it states, "Allergy Information: packed on equipment that also packages products that may contain milk, soy, wheat, peanuts and other tree nuts."  Does that mean it is not whole30 compliant?  I've seen similar information on other packages so I was wondering.  Thanks!

You're okay.  They have to say that for legal reasons related to allergies, but cross contamination of that sort doesn't bother the Whole30.  Carry on :)

Thanks for asking this question, I was just looking for similar because I bought some coconut flakes that has same small print referring to grains and nuts and was wondering if it would still be compliant.

Have you read "It Starts With Food?"  There may be more details there.  (It's been a while since I've read it, so I can't say for sure, I know they talk about the science of what not to eat, if not also the science of what to eat.)

Also, if you don't want to eat almonds, then don't.  They are listed as "Occasional" fats on the shopping list, they're not recommended as more than a closed handful every other day, or something like that.
