Franz Hot Dog Buns are Dairy-free, Egg-Free and Nut-Free

As I slowly plan ahead for our camping weekend, I am making my list of 'things to get'.  Top of the list are our hot-dog buns to go with our Hebrew National hot dogs.  We have eaten these for year, and according to their labeling, they are nut-free, egg-free, and dairy-free, a must in our home.

For those concerned about 'sodium stearoyl lactylate', the following italicized information has been taken directly from the following link, Steve Carper - Dairy or Non-Dairy


Note that FAAN (The Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network) says of calcium and sodium stearoyl lactylate: "They do not contain milk protein and need not be restricted by someone avoiding milk."

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency website says on its milk allergy page:
Ingredients that do not contain milk protein
Calcium/sodium lactate
Calcium/sodium stearoyl lactylate

Note: These lists are not complete and may change. Food and food products purchased from other countries, through mail-order or the Internet, are not always produced using the same manufacturing and labelling standards as in Canada.

You can find typical information on their website such as products, recipes, and locations to find their products.  However, you can also download a $1 off coupon and information about their giveaways and special offers.

2006 was the 100 year celebration of this company that was founded in Portland, Oregon.  Their claim to fame is that they are 'the largest, independently owned bakery in the United States'.


We really enjoy these MILK-FREE, EGG-FREE, NUT-FREE buns and hope to one day stop by the Portland Bakery and take one of their reknown bread tours!  Also, check out if you have a local Franz Outlet.  They are very generous with their coupons!!
