What does Vegan Mean?
Vegan means someone who avoids using or consuming animal products. A vegan cake/ cupcakes does not contain any dairy, eggs, or animal products.
Are all your products Vegan?
Yes. None of them contain dairy, eggs, animals or animal by products.
What allergens are your desserts "free from"?
Dairy, eggs, peanuts, all tree nuts other than coconut, sesame, fish and shellfish. Wheat is used unless the Gluten-free option is chosen. Soy is used in our "cream cheese" frosting unless requested.
Are you Kosher?
Yes! All Crumbs Baking Co. products are kosher, parve and vegan.
What does parve mean?
Parve refers to the separation between dairy and meat and even a waiting period between eating them. That means any item containing a dairy ingredient cannot be eaten at a meat meal and vice-versa. For us it means, that our ingredients and processes are not combined with dairy or meat.
Are you non-GMO?
No. We do our best to find organic and non-GMO ingredients. There are ingredients that we have not been able to find that are both organic and/or nut-free and dairy-free. In those cases, we have chosen the allergy-friendly brand over the organic brand. We never stop looking for the best ingredients.
What does “Gluten Free” mean?
A gluten-free diet is a diet that excludes the gluten protein. Gluten is found in grains such as wheat, barley, rye and triticale. Gluten gives elasticity to dough, helping it rise and keep its shape.
Are all your products gluten free / wheat free?
No. For gluten free goodies, please make sure you select the gluten free version.
How do you prevent cross contamination?
We have marked and separated ingredients, kitchen utensils, trays, containers and mixers to prepare our gluten free products. We also use different tables for the production of our products. However, if your allergy is very severe, please know that we are not a dedicated gluten-free facility.
The gluten free products are more expensive. Why?
Because the gluten free ingredients are more expensive.
Are all your products organic?
Although the majority of the products we use are certified organic (about 80%) some of them are not, like our baking soda and baking powder.
