Ingredient Snapshot: William Graham, PROVA’s vice president, sales, North America, has announced the immediate and ongoing availability of new nut flavors, especially suited to consumers who suffer from tree nut allergies. “Three million of the more than 15 million consumers who have food allergies need to avoid nuts to prevent allergic reactions that can be quite severe. Beyond understanding that nut allergies pose a serious medical concern, there’s the economic impact of children’s allergies - presently about 25 billion dollars a year," he said.
In spite of the fact that allergies to nuts are common, they are widely used because they are considered to be a healthy ingredient that can enliven the taste of an abundance of dessert and food items. PROVA technology has found the solution to the nut allergy challenge in a new line of 30 allergen-free natural type nut flavors that are well suited to a wide range of products. Peanut, pecan, pistachio, coconut, pine nut, almond, cashew and hazelnut are among the allergen-free natural type nut flavors now available from PROVA. These flavors capture unmistakable good taste without imparting the effects of troubling components that trigger allergic reactions.
PROVA’s allergen-free nut flavors come in liquid and powder form. A comprehensive list of them is available by calling 1-877-PROVA US or contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. Customers are encouraged to request a meeting with a nut flavor specialist to learn more about formulating or reformulating their products to meet the needs of a growing number of consumers who are reporting allergies to nuts and products made with nuts.
