UPDATE: 12/19/14: Our packing peanuts are now made with sorghum, instead of potato starch.
If you’ve ever received a package from us, you’ve likely encountered some of our packing peanuts (see right). Over the years, we’ve received many emails from concerned customers with questions ranging from environmental impact to worries about whether the peanuts have gluten in them.
The packing peanuts we use in our shipments are made from sorghum and will completely dissolve in water, making them both environmentally and allergen friendly. They are biodegradable and non-toxic, so if your dog is like mine and happens to chow one down, don’t sweat it. The peanuts are not food-grade, but they will decompose unlike those nasty Styrofoam peanuts. Next time you receive a box of these peanuts, you can rest a little easier knowing they won’t hurt you or the environment.
