1.0 out of 5 stars Not Flour or Allergin Free., 7 April 2014
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Organic Ground Almonds 1kg 1000g Organic Almond Flour - Gluten Free Baking - Certified Organic by the Soil Association - PINK SUN (Grocery)
This product is NOT "almond flour", it is "almond meal" or "ground almonds". You can purchase ground almonds for a price much lower than this.
I bought this "flour" because I have food allergies, but the only thing is can guarantee is that it is gluten free. It is NOT stated in the product description that this product "may contain traces of other nuts, peanuts, milk, soya protein and cinnamon." As a result I am unable to use it. This should be more clearly stated in the description seeing as many of the people buying it will have food allergies other than gluten.
I am not impressed with this product, it is not what it is advertised to be. I have gone back to another brand of ground almonds I know contains no other allergens and is not pretending to be almond flour.

A very helpful review. I wish more attention was paid by Amazon to ensuring product descriptions are exact especialy when it comes to selling or promoting goods for people with allergies. I too have bought products which turned out to be not as described and therefore unusable.

PINK SUN Ltd says:
Dear Customers, PINK SUN certified organic ground almonds are packed in a facility that also handles other food products, some of which contain allergens. Strict processes are in place to avoid cross contamination. The allergen containing products are packed in a separate room, on a separate line and at a different time to PINK SUN almond flour. However, as the products are held in the same building, the words "MAY contain traces of others nuts, peanuts, milk, soya protein and cinnamon." are printed on the packet. Please note the product does not contain these allergens in the ingredients list and the risk of exposure is extremely minimal. The packing facility does not handle any gluten containing products at all. We hope this will help you make an informed decision prior to purchasing. Please see our full range of certified organic, gluten free, revitalising and sugar free products! Thank you for your interest in PINK SUN certified organic ground almonds / almond flour.
