The Fancy Marshmallow Co. Answers Your Common Marshmallow Questions

Today, we're tackling some common questions about our delicious treats. Whether you're wondering about gluten, vegan options, or health benefits, we've got you covered. Let's dive in!

Are Marshmallows Gluten-Free? Yes, most marshmallows are gluten-free, including ours at The Fancy Marshmallow Co. We make them with gluten-free ingredients like sugar, water, non-high fructose corn syrup and beef gelatin. However, please note that our facility isn't allergen-free, so there may be a risk of cross-contamination. If you have a gluten allergy, steer clear of marshmallow flavors like cookies that may contain gluten. For severe gluten intolerance or celiac disease, we recommend checking our allergen-friendly options in-store.


Are Marshmallows Vegan? Fancy marshmallows, like the ones we offer at The Fancy Marshmallow Co., aren't vegan due to the beef gelatin they contain. While we don't currently have vegan marshmallows, we're always working on creating new options to accommodate different dietary preferences. Stay tuned for updates!

Are Marshmallows Vegetarian? Our regular marshmallows contain beef gelatin and aren't suitable for vegetarians. However, we do provide vegetarian-friendly options, such as our Marshmallow Creme, which is delicious and gelatin-free. Look for these options in-store or check our labels for more information. 

Are Marshmallows Dairy-Free? Yes, marshmallows are naturally dairy-free, including ours at The Fancy Marshmallow Co. The ingredients we use—sugar, water, and beef gelatin—are free from dairy products. While marshmallows are generally safe for those with lactose intolerance or dairy allergies, be cautious with flavored varieties that may contain dairy. We also offer allergen-friendly options by request for those with specific dietary concerns.


How Can Marshmallows Help Soothe a Sore Throat? Marshmallows can provide relief for a sore throat by creating a soothing coating effect with their gelatin content. While they won't cure a sore throat, they can offer comfort, especially high-quality marshmallows with a soft texture. For persistent or severe symptoms, it's best to consult a healthcare professional. In conclusion, we hope this post has addressed your marshmallow queries.

Whether you're gluten-free, vegetarian, or dairy-free, we've got a marshmallow for you. And if you need some throat relief, our marshmallows could be just what you need. Enjoy and munch away happily!
