New Graham-Style Crumbs are ideal for gluten-free baking at home. These bread crumbs are dairy and nut free as well, and are suited for making pie crusts or cheesecake, or for use as an ice cream topping. Like all Kinnikinnick products, this product offers the benefit of safety from cross-contamination. Made from natural ingredients such as brown rice flour, brown sugar and sweet rice flour, the Graham Style Crumbs come packaged with prominent new dairy and nut-free logos in 10.5-oz containers.

Kinnikinnick introduces Panko Style Bread Crumbs, a gluten-, dairy- and nut-free product that in early taste tests has been praised for their flavor, freshness and versatility not only by those special diets, but by mainstream consumers as well. These bread crumbs are perfect for coating chicken, pork, fish and vegetables, and are formulated to become crispy, staying that way even the next day, according to Kinnikinnick. They consistently stick to foods and never absorb too much oil during the cooking process.

Adding to its line of gluten-, dairy- and nut-free KinniKritters Animal Cookies, the company announces Graham-Style and Chocolate flavors. Also free of wheat, casein, lactose and peanuts, KinniKritters have proven popular not only with children on special diets, but also with mainstream families looking for healthy and equally tasty snack foods and baked goods, according to the company. “Given the response to our original flavor, we’re confident the new Graham-Style and Chocolate varieties will also quickly become favorites among conscientious shoppers and further establish Kinnikinnick as the definitive gluten, dairy and nut-free baked goods brand on the market today,” says Kinnikinnick Foods’ CEO Jerry Bigam.

Kinnikinnick also introduces a new chocolate-packed Fudge flavor to its line of KinniToos Sandwich Creme Cookies. KinniToos are also available in Chocolate Vanilla and Vanilla flavors. Loaded with flavor and freshness and sure to be popular with chocolate lovers of all ages, says the firm, KinniToos are gluten, wheat, dairy/casein, nut and trans-fat free and are sold in 7- oz. packages.
