The chocolate we use is free from gluten, eggs and sea shells, but contains cow’s milk and may contain traces of nuts and soya. All ingredients, nutrition facts and allergy information on our packaging meet appropriate legal requirements.

Nut & peanut allergy

The Steenland Chocolate factory is nut free and it is highly unlikely that peanut traces are present in our chocolate. Traces of peanut materials being present as a result of potential cross contamination at the beginning of the supply chain are estimated to be lower than 1 mg/kg.

Independent analyses after processing into cocoa mass shows that peanut allergens were not present at a detection limit of 2.5 ppm. Concerning the involuntary presence of peanut allergens in cocoa, we agree with the position of the ECA (European Cocoa Association) from June 2005.
