When Is The Best Time To Order

Because we have a shipping window of only 3 days a week, we have to limit the number of orders we ship each week.

We generally recommend ordering Thursday or Friday for delivering the following week. If you order on Monday your order may be shipped that same week but it depends entirely on the volume of orders.

Please note that we cannot guarantee any of these delivery times as it is dependent on order volumes. Your order will be shipped in the order it was received. Our maximum delivery standard remains 10 working days from the time you place your order.

Due to packaging and production issues we are not able to offer mixes or flours in bulk.

Are Your Products Kosher

Yes. Kinnikinnick Foods facilities, and an extensive list of products, are certified OU kosher pareve by the Orthodox Union.

Both of our facilities have been through the rigorous certification program under the supervision of the Kashruth Division of the Orthodox Union.

Which Of Your Products Are Fortified

Currently our breads and buns are fortified. We are fortifying with Thiamine, Vitamin B2, Niacin, Folic Acid and Iron

How Should I Store Your Products

All of our soft baked products contain no preservatives and should be kept frozen until use. Breads & buns may be kept on the counter for up to 7 days but this will depend on conditions in your kitchen. We do not guarantee product freshness if not stored in the freezer.

Cookies, mixes and raw ingredients do not need to be frozen. Store in a sealed container in a dry location.

If you order directly from us, products are are shipped to your door via overnight courier and you will need to freeze them immediately.

Do You Carry Gluten Free Oats

Most oats available in North America are NOT acceptable as they are contaminated with other gluten containing grains.

Some studies have shown that some people may be able to tolerate Pure Uncontaminated Oats.

We believe more studies are necessary to ensure the long term effects of oats in a Celiac Diet and have made the decision not to carry them at this time.

Do You Have Recipe Book

Not at this time, however the recipe section on here our website has over 100 searchable recipes complete with nutritional information.

Do You Have Online Product Preparation Instructions

If you can't find or read the recipe on the package, you can view preparation instructions from the label for all our products by finding the product either by visiting the product page or by searching for the item.

Did You Discontinue Product X

We occasionally hear from customers that their local store has told them that a Kinnikinnick product has been discontinued. Most of the time this is not the case. There are several reasons for this:

Store employees may be uninformed
Store may not be carrying the product any longer and does not want to upset the customer
Distributor may be having supply problems due to high demand
Kinnikinnick may be having supply problems due to high demand
If we are discontinuing a product you will see a notice on our blog.

What Is The Shelf Life Of Your Products

For best quality use before:

Frozen Goods - 8 months
Cookies - 1 year
Mixes - 1 year (minimum)

Do You Make Special Orders

Due to production and shipping constraints we are not able to offer a Special Order service.

Note to Edmonton and Area Customers: We do offer a special order service for birthday and wedding cakes for pickup at our Edmonton retail store. Contact the store directly for availability and pricing.

Why Doesn't My Store Carry Some Products

Most of our products are sold to stores through distributors. Our distributors have approximately 45 products available to them. These products are our best sellers.

Individual stores make decisions based on customer input, shelf and freezer space and perceived demand. If you would like to see our products in your local store, talk to your local store manager. Many stores will do special orders if you purchase a case from them.

Frequently Asked Questions (9 )
What Is Gluten

Gluten is a sticky, long chain protein molecule that is found in many grains including Wheat, Barley, Rye, Kamut, Spelt and Oats*.

Gluten can be toxic to people with Celiac Disease

Gluten in wheat flour helps bread and other baked goods stick together and prevent crumbling. Gluten is used in many processed and packaged foods.

*Some studies have shown that some people may be able to tolerate Pure Uncontaminated Oats.
 

Do You Have A Dedicated GF Facility
All Kinnikinnick facilities are dedicated Gluten Free.

Kinnikinnick Employees are provided free GF breads, buns, cookies and other snacks as they are not allowed to bring such items into our facilities.
Do You Test For Gluten
Every product we produce is gluten free.

All new ingredients are tested using the High Sensitivity ELISA Gluten Test (HSEGT) in our lab by our food scientist.
All our major ingredients tested at each new shipment using the HSEGT in our lab
All our minor ingredients are randomly tested using the HSEGT in our lab
All our ingredients are spot checked using the Gluten rapid test kits
All our products are randomly tested by the CFIA (Canadian equivalent of the FDA) as gluten free is a regulated term in Canada
Where Do You Get Your Gluten Free Ingredients
A key job here at Kinnikinnick is held by our purchasing department. They track down GF ingredients, arrange for gluten statements from the supplier, bring in samples of new ingredients for testing in our lab and monitor any change notices from suppliers ensuring our supply chain is truly GF.
What Are Your Gluten Free Standards

Every product we produce is gluten free.

  • All of our products are produced in our two dedicated Gluten Free facilities.
  • All our ingredient suppliers are required to provide gluten free statements
  • All our ingredients are tested using various gluten testing protocols in our lab by our food scientists.
  • Our finished products are guaranteed to test less than 5ppm.
  • All of our finished products are continually tested daily.
  • All our products are randomly tested by the CFIA (Canadian equivalent of the FDA) as gluten free is a regulated term in Canada

What Does Your Lab Do
In the Fall of 2006, Kinnikinnick opened it's new Quality Assurance Lab. This 800 sqft facility is located in the largest of our 2 facilities. This lab is tasked with providing complete product quality assurance.

The lab tests for gluten and other allergens and pathogens. All arriving ingredients used in our products are tested for gluten in this lab based on several criteria which we have developed (see Do You Test For Gluten)

It also monitors and controls product quality in terms of color, moisture content, texture several other quality points.
What About Corn and Rice Gluten
Defining gluten can be somewhat confusing as it has become the generic term for a protein found in wheat, rye, triticale, spelt , kamut, barley, and oats.

In fact, it is the portion of gluten molecule called the prolamins which is toxic for celiacs.

The prolamins are gliadin in wheat, secalin in rye, horedin in barley and evedin in oats (see note on GF Oats) .

Confusion arises when the word gluten is used in conjunction with corn or rice (corn gluten, glutinous rice). Technically speaking corn and rice do have a form of gluten but THEY DO NOT have the toxic portion and are acceptable on a gluten free diet.
What Are Gluten Free Grains
The following Grains and Starches are acceptable on a GF Diet:

Tapioca (Cassava, yucca, manioc)
Rice (brown, white, sweet)
Potato
Pea
Corn
Soy
Amaranth
Teff
Quinoa
Legume Flours (lentil, chickpea)
Buckwheat
Sorghum (milo)
This is only a partial list. Check with your local Celiac Association for more in-depth listings
Do Seeds Contain Gluten
Seeds such as sesame, sunflower, poppy, caraway  and flax are acceptable on a GF diet.
