I am researching your question and will be updating my answer as soon as I gather the information for you.

Thank you for your inquiry.

Additional Answer - Feb 9-2015

I did reach one company, AZChia, that is unable to guarantee a nut free manufacturing facility. This does seem to be a problem since these types of facilities handle a lot of volume for many companies. There is a possibility in the future but not at this time.

I did contact another company, The Chia Co, who had just recently begun researching their options to see if they can deliver chia free of tree nut exposure.

The person I spoke to thought she would have some information for me by the end of this week. I'll provide an update as soon as I hear back.

Sincerely,

Janis Ihrig
