Wasatch Product Development (http://www.wasatchlabs.com), the premier contract manufacturer of personal care and nutritional products in bottles, tubes and flexible packaging announced today the expansion of its capabilities to include peanut processing for tear-top and spouted-pouch flexible packaging.

“Wasatch’s new allergen processing capability enables us to meet the growing market need for healthy fat, healthy protein formulations using peanuts, almonds and other tree nuts. We see a rapidly increasing demand from our customers and their retail partners such as Amazon, Walmart, Costco and Sam’s Club for nut butters and formulations with nut-based ingredients,” said Mike Talbot, vice president of sales.

According to the Mayo Clinic, research suggests that eating nuts supports general heart health.1 Wasatch Product Development employs formulators and food scientists with expertise in incorporating nut-based ingredients into novel food and dietary supplement formulations.
