Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know which products contain nuts or other allergens?
In all facilities the allergen control programs have been reviewed and confirmed to meet and/or exceed industry standards and expectations by recognized third party auditing firms. All recognized food allergens contained in any of our products as per formulation are clearly identified in the ingredient declaration located on the lid, side or back panel of the package.
What is BST, rBST and/or artificial growth hormones?
Are all Byrne products made from farmers who pledge not to use artificial growth hormones?
For all other Byrne products, supply and consumer demand are part of this answer. As consumer preference for rBST-free milk has increased, more dairy farmers have begun switching their practices to eliminate the use of artificial growth hormones. We will continue to monitor supply and consumer demand for milk from farmers who pledge not to use artificial growth hormones, and will make further changes in our production accordingly.
Why did Byrne decide to request its farmers pledge not to use artificial growth hormones?
Are all kids supposed to drink milk and how many glasses a day?
The amount of milk that kids should drink depends on their age. From ages 1 through 3, kids require 500 milligrams of calcium – the equivalent of about two glasses of milk (16 oz.); 4 to 8 year-olds need 800 milligrams of calcium, or nearly 3 glasses (24 oz.) of milk daily; 9 to 13 year olds need 1,300 milligrams calcium, which is equal to four and a third glasses of milk (nearly 35 oz.).
What is the recommended daily allowance of calcium?
Age 1 to 3 = 500 milligrams (about 2 glasses of milk)
Age 4 to 8 = 800 milligrams (approximately 3 glasses of milk)
Age 9 to 18 = 1,300 milligrams (approximately 4 1/3 glasses of milk)
Age 19 to 50 = 1,000 milligrams (about 3 1/3 glasses of milk)
Age 50+ = 1,200 milligrams (about 4 glasses of milk)

Do you have directions for making whipped cream?
Are your Cookiewiches really made by hand?
Once they are cooled, one of Byrne specialists applies ice cream from a machine to the center of each cookie. FYI, our delicious ice cream is also made on-site!
Finally, a cookie is placed on top and heads off to our freezer. Once sleeved, they are counted and handplaced in a box for shipping.
