In a recent inquiry with Nestlé Toll House customer service, I gained some valuable insights into their Allergen-Free Morsels, which I believe will be beneficial for our readers, especially those concerned with food allergies and gluten sensitivity.

Nestlé Toll House offers Allergen-Free Morsels that are specifically designed to be safe for consumers allergic to any of the 9 major food allergens as defined by the US FDA, including peanuts, tree nuts, egg, milk, wheat, soy, fish, shellfish, and sesame. What sets these morsels apart is not just their allergen-free ingredient list but also the manufacturing process. According to the customer service representative, Rachel, Nestlé Toll House maintains a dedicated allergen-free facility, ensuring a vertically integrated supply chain with dedicated trucks and ingredient handling practices, along with specific allergen control procedures. This meticulous approach provides added confidence in the safety of these products for those with food allergies.

It was clarified that only the Allergen-Free specific morsel flavors fall under this category and are also gluten-free, a detail that's labeled on each bag. This information is particularly relevant for those with celiac disease or gluten intolerance, ensuring that they can enjoy baking with these chocolate chips without concern.

Nestlé Toll House's Allergen-Free Morsels are gluten-free, designed in a dedicated facility to ensure safety for those with gluten sensitivity.

However, it's important to note that other chocolate chip varieties, such as the Hot Cocoa & Marshmallow morsels and the Plant-Based morsels, do not share the same allergen-free and gluten-free benefits. The Hot Cocoa & Marshmallow morsels contain milk and soy, while the Plant-Based morsels include soy and are made with whole grain oat flour, indicating the presence of gluten.

This conversation underscores the importance of carefully checking product labels and, when in doubt, reaching out directly to the manufacturer to ensure the safety of food products, especially for those with specific dietary restrictions.
