Frequently Asked Questions

1) Are your products produced in a peanut free and tree-nut free facility?

Yes, all of our products are manufactured exclusively in facilities that do not process peanuts or tree-nuts.

2) Are your products milk free, casein free, and lactose free?

Yes, all of our products are manufactured without milk, casein, or lactose.

3) How do I get Meraby’s Allergy Family Foods at a store near me?

If you would like to see our products at a store near you, simply fill out our Retailer Request Form (click here) and provide it to your grocer.

4) Are your products manufactured on equipment that also processes milk and egg?

Yes, we do manufacture our products in facilities that manufacture other products that contain these ingredients. However, extensive cleaning procedures are utilized before Meraby products are manufactured to ensure there is no cross-contamination. Our manufacturer uses a “wet” cleaning procedure, as opposed to a “dry” cleaning procedure, which ensures a more thorough removal of possible allergens. We also test every batch to ensure our products are completely dairy and egg free.

5) Do you have plans to produce any wheat free/gluten free products?

Yes, as Meraby expands its product line, we plan to introduce wheat free/gluten free products. To ensure you’re aware of new product introductions, please visit the contact us page of the site and send us an email letting us know what you would like to see in the future.

6) Do your products contain sulfites or sesame?

Our products do not contain sesame or sulfites.

7) Why do you use evaporated cane juice, instead of refined sugar?

Recent studies show that consumption of refined sugar may be a contributing factor to other health related problems, such as diabetes. Since we’re concerned about our consumers’ overall well being, we’ve taken steps to ensure our products contain ingredients that contribute to total body health.

8) Can I use another oil in your mixes besides canola oil?

Yes, you may use any oil that your diet will allow. We recommend canola oil because of its heart healthy benefits, and because it is not a common allergen. Other dry mixes call for the use of vegetable oil, which is actually soybean oil. However, if soy isn’t a problem for you, then you can certainly use it.

9) Are your products vegan?

Yes, our products are considered vegan since they do not contain any animal by-products, such as eggs or dairy, nor do they use refined sugar.

10) Are your foods organic?

No, Meraby foods are not organic. While we strive to ensure we are providing health conscious products, we are unable to make our foods organic. In order to eliminate possible allergens, our manufacturing and supplier requirements are very strict, and thereby quite costly. If we added the additional requirement of organic onto our products, it would not be cost effective.
