Now the company offers more than 30 PROVA allergen-free nut flavors to address consumers’ nut allergy concerns.

“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,” says William Graham, PROVA’s vice president, sales, North America. “Beyond understanding that nut allergies pose a serious medical concern, there’s the economic impact of children’s allergies, which is presently about $25 billion a year.”

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.
