No. All of our products are free of hydrogenated oil and fats. Hydrogenation, a process in which hydrogen is
added to oils to make them more solid, is used by many in the baking industry to help make products moist,
easier to slice and stay fresh longer.
Mono- and diglycerides, which have earned GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) status by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration,
are naturally present in fats and have been used with a high confidence of safety for many years. The mono- and diglycerides we use
are vegetable derived and provide the product quality and taste our customers enjoy.

We assure you that we adhere to Good Manufacturing Practices as established by the FDA. We take abundant precaution to prevent
cross-contact of allergenic ingredients between batches, and our bakeries are inspected to ensure that they meet or exceed all
regulatory and baking industry standards. We understand that highly sensitive consumers need to know when there is even the remotest
possibility of inadvertent cross-contact of allergenic ingredients during processing. To that end we disclose that the following
allergenic ingredients are used in some of our manufacturing facilities and that inadvertent cross-contact is remotely possible: milk,
eggs, soy, almonds, walnuts, peanuts and hazelnuts (filberts). Wheat is used in all of our facilities and all of our products as an
ingredient. Please refer to ingredient labels on our products for full disclosure of the ingredients used in that product.
