FYI - When I talked with them, the tube ones are likely made on shared lines with nuts and sunflower oil. They don't own the plant for filling them, so they hire another company to do it. They have no way of knowing what ingredients the other company uses.
 
On the plus side, the ones in the tin are no on shared lines  :)

Does anyone worry about mono or diglycerides? I was recently diagnosed with sunflower allergy, and am wondering how extreme I need to be.
 All the allergist told me was to avoid sunflower seeds and oil. I know to avoid 'vegetable oil', but I learned that mono-diglycerides are derived from these substances... Any thoughts?

Hi the ONLY way to tell where it comes from if it says mono or di etc is to phone the manufacturer. 'Vegetable oil' as something that you always avoid will restrict you tremendously! Its always important to avoid it if you dont know the source....BUT if you call the manufacturer then you may find that there are many things that you can eat that you would have otherwise avoided.
 good luck
