About

Hello! At Puffworks we’re on a mission to promote nutritious snacking using plant-based protein, while also working to help reduce the incidence of peanut allergy.

Puffworks makes delicious, nutritious peanut butter puffs with simple organic ingredients (organic peanuts, organic whole grain corn and sea salt). Recent medical research shows that introducing a safe-to-eat peanut food as early as 4 months and continuing until 5 years-old reduces the rate of developing a peanut allergy by 86%, compared to infants who are not introduced to a safe-to-eat peanut food.*

Over the past 6 months, our product development Guru (also his name!) and our medical advisor Dr. Ron Sunog helped us develop Puffworks baby peanut butter puffs, an easy and fun way to introduce peanuts to your baby. Puffworks baby peanut butter puffs:  

  • dissolve quickly  
  • are easy to hold  
  • contain the right amount of peanut protein to successfully introduce peanut to your infant** 
  • contain no added sugar  
  • are a good source of protein and whole grain! 

Inspiring healthier habits for babies In addition to helping reduce the prevalence of peanut allergies, Puffworks baby peanut butter puffs help your child build healthy snacking habits. We believe unhealthy eating habits are learned, not born. Our peanut butter puffs are rich in protein with no added-sugar – the kind of foods you want your baby to crave. Plus, all of our snacks contain only plant-based protein, so they’re good for the environment too. [Nutty fact: peanuts are legumes which naturally release nitrogen back into the soil as they grow!] When your child is ready to chew crunchier food(s), he or she can enjoy Puffworks Original peanut butter puffs, which are also available in Dark Chocolate and Honey flavors, and contain 4-5g of protein per serving.

 Help us DELIVER Puffworks babyWe’re a small but mighty team with a BIG mission! We want to help children grow up in a world where they don’t have to worry about food allergies – especially peanut allergy - and we need your support! 

Here’s how to help: If you’re a new parent looking for a fun and easy way to introduce peanuts to your infant(s), then simply pre-order a case of Puffworks baby today to help us kickstart our first commercial production. Your support will help us:

  • purchase the raw organic ingredients 
  • print our new packaging
  • scale our production in a new facility

Also, for every 10 Puffworks baby pre-orders we receive we will donate a case of Puffworks baby to a child in need.

For a limited time, we also have some awesome rewards if you’re able to donate a bit more, including an adorable Puffworks baby elephant onesie and some of our Puffworks Original peanut butter puff snacks. The more support we have in advance the more we can ensure our Puffworks baby puffs get in the (tiny) hands (and stomachs!) you love, while also helping educate parents on the new medical guidelines* for introducing safe-to-eat peanut foods to infants early and often.

Hungry For Facts?

*New research shows that introducing peanut food during infancy helps elicit a protective immune response instead of an allergic immune reaction. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the American Academy of Pediatrics now officially stand behind this recommendation based on the Learning Early About Peanut Allergies (LEAP) study

**The Learning Early About Peanut Allergies (LEAP) study demonstrated that regular peanut consumption begun in early infancy and continued until age 5 reduced the rate of peanut allergy in at-risk infants by over 80% compared to infants who did not consume peanut food(s). 

Risks and challenges

Creating a new snack brand is risky—and hard. But, hey, if it was easy, everybody would do it.

We’re creating an entirely new brand in a relatively new category. It will take a lot of huffing and puffing to reach the summit, with potential unforeseen challenges, but we're committed. Luckily the product is delicious (and babies love it!).
