I get a lot of questions about whether my products are appropriate for people with various dietary restrictions. Here’s a run down of how Love Plus Flour items may or may not fit your needs:
Everything I make is 100% kosher, from the products to the process. Moreover, everything is pareve (non-dairy). None of the items I sell have any dairy in them, even when the product name or description includes words like “cream”, “milk”, “butter”. My facility is overseen by Rabbi Mordechai Kaplovitz, Reliable Kashrus of Cleveland. You can see my certificate of kashrut on the Hashgacha page.
As mentioned above, everything I make is 100% non-dairy.
SOME of my items are vegan. Refer to the chart below to see which ones.
Because only a small number of my products contain nuts, it’s easier to tell you which have them than which don’t. That said, I do make things with nuts from time to time. I do a thorough cleaning of my workspace before and after preparing those products. It depends on a person’s sensitivity as to whether this is good enough, and I take no offense if someone is uncomfortable buying from me for this reason.
A handful of my products are what I would call “gluten friendly”, meaning they have no gluten in their recipe. That said, this is a bakery and flour gets EVERYWHERE. I do my best to clean up before preparing these items but, as with the nut-free items above, a person should exercise their own judgement when ordering.
