At Rocket Foods, all of our products are certified Gluten Free by the Gluten Free Certification Organization (GFCO) which has a standard of 10 parts per million (ppm).
In Canada, our products without the GFCO certificate label carry the industry designation “Pure Oats”. The Canadian Celiac Association and Health Canada recognize Pure Oats as a healthful addition to most gluten-free diets although they may not be labeled gluten free under current law.
This law is currently under review by Health Canada which includes a proposal to allow Pure Oats to be labeled as gluten free. Until that change, our Canadian granolas that contain Pure Oats are labeled as wheat, barley and rye free.

Soy lecithin is present on the granola line in the semi-sweet chocolate chips and 70% dark chocolate chunks as a fat emulsifier. Soybeans are packaged on the trail mix/ingredient line along with the 70% dark chocolate chunks pouches and semi-sweet mini chocolate chip pouches which may contain soy lecithin.
Soy cross contamination is a possibility with all products at Rocket Foods. Because of this, you will see soy allergen declarations on all of our products.
No ingredients containing sulphite preservatives are used in the facility.
The Rocket Foods manufacturing facility is organized into three separate lines:
- the granola bar line
- the granola/oatmeal line
- the chocolate/seeds/trail mix line
These three lines are not separated by walls. Manufacturing schedules are set up to minimize cross contamination, but cross contamination is still a possibility.
