What are safe brands of peanut free cashews and cashew butter? After we discovered cashews were safe for our daughter with a severe peanut allergy, we went on the hunt to find cashews made in peanut free facilities.

To my surprise, we found cashew butter that’s delicious too. It’s definitely one of our favorite peanut butter alternatives, along with SunButter.

Below are 12 peanut free cashew options, 5 peanut-free cashew butters, and 7 cashew brands that are NOT peanut free.

🚨CASHEWS THAT CONTAIN PEANUTS OR MAY CONTAIN PEANUTS🚨

Most cashews are made on shared equipment with peanuts, which makes shopping for safe cashews extremely difficult for individuals with peanut allergies that need to avoid cross-contact.

Here are several examples of cashew brands that are NOT peanut free. These cashews contain peanut oil or are packaged on shared equipment with peanuts:

⚠️QUESTIONABLE CASHEW BRANDS⚠️

Until I receive a response from these companies, it is uncertain whether the following cashew brands manufacture their cashews on the same equipment as peanuts. Their packaging and website do not clearly state this information.

We will update the article about the safety as we hear back from these companies:

ARE CASHEWS PEANUT-FREE?

Cashews are peanut-free. Cashews are a tree nut and peanuts are part of the legume family. However, tree nuts like cashews are often processed on the same equipment as peanuts, creating a risk for cross-contact allergic reactions.

Even though companies usually follow cleaning and testing procedures for the top 8 allergens in the United States, tiny unseen amounts of peanut protein can remain on the equipment. This is referred to as cross-contact or cross-contamination. Learn more from FARE.

Our daughter has reacted to food that was processed on the same equipment as peanuts, so finding foods like these cashews and cashew butters packaged in dedicated peanut-free facilities is a major blessing for peanut allergy kids and parents like us.

CAN YOU BE ALLERGIC TO CASHEWS AND NOT PEANUTS?

A peanut allergy and a cashew allergy are two different things.

  • You can be allergic to both peanuts and cashews.
  • You can be allergic to peanuts and not cashews.
  • You can be allergic to cashews and not peanuts.

Working with a medical professional, testing, and tracking reactions in a food journal can help you can figure out which nut your body reacts to and which it can safely eat.
