To mark Food Allergy Awareness Week in the US, Nestlé Toll House has released a new allergen-free chocolate chip product line for use in baking.
The Simply Delicious Morsels range will initially offer two varieties, Semi-Sweet and 67% Dark Chocolate, both of which are completely free from all eight major allergens: peanut, tree nut, milk, egg, wheat, soy, fish and shellfish.
Both variants are made with three ingredients: cocoa butter, pure cane sugar and 100% real chocolate, and are also free from artificial flavours, preservatives and flavours.
Packaging for the new product line will feature a teal ribbon, which signifies that the products are allergen free to consumers.
Haig Basmadjian, marketing director at Nestlé Toll House said: “We are thrilled to launch Simply Delicious Morsels because we believe the exceptional taste of Nestlé Toll House should be enjoyed and shared by everyone.
“Simply Delicious Morsels are a great option for bakers who want to feel confident that the ingredients they are using are high-quality, taste great and are safe for all to enjoy, including those with any of the eight major food allergies.”
Both variants of the Simply Delicious Morsels range will be available from selected US retailers from June onwards, with a suggested retail price of $4.99 per packet.
