Wilton's icing/fondant coloring is manufactured in a facility that processes peanuts and my daughter is allergic to peanuts. What other kinds of icing coloring can I use? This is all new to me, so I apologize if this is a stupid question! LOL
There's also Americolor, which you can find online or at a cake decorating supply store or restaurant supply store. They've got more colors and the ones that I've tried have been more vivid, especially the red and black. If you're looking for something you can purchase locally, Lorann makes liquid gel colors too. I haven't tried them but I've seen them at Hobby Lobby and they aren't expensive at all. I keep meaning to buy some to try, but then I go there for something else and then totally forget (mostly from trying to keep my little monkeys hands off all the neat stuff in Hobby Lobby ).
Also, depending on what other allergies your daughter might have, you can find all-natural food colorings at the health food store, like Whole Foods. I haven't tried any of those yet, they're expensive.
There is an Americolor brand...I don't know if there are peanuts manufactured there, but a lot of people on here including myself use it.
Thank you so much. I will check into those.
You can try Cake Craft as well. They're pretty good, but I don't know about the peanut thing: //www.cakecraft.net/index.html
I e-mailed Americolor about their allergen info. Here's what they replied:
We dont have any peanut/nut products in our facility. Thank you for your interest in AmeriColor.
Americolor or chef master
You may also try Crystal Colors. They are powder colors.
Chefmaster is my color of choice.
For what it's worth, I've used Wilton coloring in products I've made for kids that had peanut allergies and they had no reactions.
I didn't even know it was made in a plant that had peanut products till this thread. Good to know!
Someone who has some older Wilton's colors may want to look at the box to see what it says. It's possible that Wilton's has recently changed where their colors are manufactured and so that now they are exposed to peanuts whereas before they were not. You just never know.
Thanks to all of you that answered!
