Homemade, Local Roots

Alternutive began as a way for me to satisfy my craving for peanut butter while being severely allergic to nuts. To re-create the taste of peanut butter, I homemade my own snacks using Sunflower Seed Butter as nut-free alternative. During college, it became my mission to make safely made snacks available for other people with food allergies or limited snack options.

We joined Hope & Main to start Alternutive. Hand-making and vending our products at local markets around Rhode Island helped shape the values we took with us when we transitioned to the dedicated allergen-free facility we call home today. By keeping homemade, local quality in mind, we preserve our roots in everything we make.

Nutritious. Delicious. Nut-Free!


Positive micro and macro nutritional value – achieved by holding strict standards for each and every ingredient. Clean ingredients from clean sources only. No GMO’s, preservatives, or artificial flavors. Just a short list of simple, nutritious ingredients combined together to make nutritious snacks.


We believe nutritious food should always taste delicious. Our ingredients are carefully blended together to ensure the flavor and texture combination is just right. Sunflower Seed Butter stands out to give you a sweet & salty peanut butter, but not peanut butter taste. We’ve spent years working on our recipes because we understand the importance of a good snack.


We are a 100% dedicated nut-free company. No peanuts. No tree-nuts. No cross-contamination. That means NO NUTS in the recipes, on the equipment, or in the facility. Our products are free from 12/12 major allergens and our facility is free from 10/12 major allergens. The safety of the food allergy community is important to us.
