KIND Snacks Introduces Granola Clusters

KIND bars are some of my favorite snack bars to keep in my purse.  They travel well, meaning they don’t fall apart, melt or crumble.  Now KIND Snacks is introducing a fun, new snack: healthy grains granola clusters!   These look like the perfect treat to sprinkle over Greek yogurt, fresh fruit or to enjoy in a bowl with some almond milk poured over top.

    I have a question (in general, not just about this product). If a product says gluten free (as this granola does) but doesn’t say certified gluten free, can you assume that the oats they are using are gluten free oats? Or are they allowed to say gluten free on a product containing oats, because oats themselves are technically gluten free even though we KNOW they are probably cross contaminated. This has puzzled me for quite a while, so currently I avoid any oats in products UNLESS they are certified GF. BUT I wonder if I’m being too carefull. Any insights?

    • Hi Kathleen,

      Generally, unless oats say they are “gluten-free oats”, they aren’t. Gluten-free oats have to meet specific growing & processing standards to carry that title. KIND snacks lists their oats as “GF”:

      Whole grains (gluten free oats, brown rice, millet, gluten free oat flour, buckwheat, amaranth, quinoa), evaporated cane juice, coconut, honey, canola oil, chicory root fiber, sesame seeds, molasses, sea salt, Vitamin E (D-Alpha Tocopheryl Acetate).

      Additionally, they maintain a dedicated GF facility & test their products for the presence of gluten (less than 20 ppm)

      I hope that helps! Please let me know if you have any other questions.

      Kim

    My Wegman’s has these in 3 of the varieties. They really stick with you especially if you mix them with Greek yogurt. I love that they contain no refined sugars and that they aren’t really sweet. I got them on sale for $3.99 each.
