Whether it’s someone in your own family, your child’s class, a cousin, co-worker, family friend, etc. These days, the number of children affected by allergies is terrifyingly astounding. You would think that with a rise in confirmed allergies that there would also be a subsequent increase in available, safe, certified nut-free foods, right? Unfortunately, that’s not the reality in grocery stores today.
That’s why Nutracelle was created
"After my son nearly died from an exposure to peanuts, I knew there needed to be safer choices. That's why I created Nutracelle, the only peanut-free, gluten-free, 100% natural prebiotic protein."
-Melanie Wildman, CEO & Founder of Nutracelle
Melanie & her son Raine
That’s why it’s so, so, so incredibly important to Nutracelle that we’re a peanut-free, tree-nut-free, safe product for everyone.
“We are seeing more peanut allergies—more food allergies overall—than we did 15 to 20 years ago.”
— Matthew Greenhawt, chair of the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology Food Allergy Committee
A Product You CAN Trust
Not only is each and every one of our ingredients nut-free, but your beloved Nutralean is also made in a certified nut-free and peanut-free facility. You may not realize this, but some of your nut-free products are still made in a facility that makes other products that contain nuts. This means that even though the product is ‘nut-free’ there’s still a very real, very scary chance of cross contamination. Our children are not worth the risk.
No child should look at food and wonder if it will kill them. At home, at school, or anywhere.
Most schools have started doing a great job of being nut-free, but until it’s a mandated practice… our loved ones with allergies are still at risk. This means that not only do the at-risk children have to worry, but their friends also have to worry about the impact their lunchbox may have on their classmate.
Imagine a world where children can pack whatever yummy treat they want, with the freedom to choose between multiple, safe, nut-free products. Where children can happily go about their day and enjoy their food without fear. That’s the world that Nutracelle is helping to create thanks to our all-natural, peanut-free, tree-nut-free, and gluten-free protein powder. Read our article about Nutracelle's nut-free formula here.
As a mom, our most important job is protecting our children. The most terrifying part of a nut allergy isn't keeping your children safe from nuts, it's all the products and foods that come into contact with nuts that you can't see or aren't obvious. From foods you find on the grocery shelf, to foods prepared by well-meaning family members, to eating out in restaurants, or sitting in a seat in a movie theatre... life-threatening risks for your child are literally lurking everywhere.
It's not enough to be educated yourself and understand what to look for on labels. As the mother of children with allergies, we must also educate our children on how to say no, how to navigate the emotions of feeling left out from what everyone else is having, how to educate family members and friends on why their home-made foods aren't safe. It's a constant day-to-day reality for families with allergies that every interaction with food is a potential life-threatening moment.
Many foods that do not list an allergen on the label are still processed on shared equipment with allergens. Just because a food item doesn't say nuts on the label, doesn't actually mean it is safe. That's why looking for a nut-free facility symbol is so important, and ensuring labels show which allergies may be present. When potential allergens are not listed, it may be that the manufacturer is only listing the ingredients in the product, not the ingredients on other products they make in the same facility that do.
This is especially true of American products or foreign products that do not need to disclose cross-contamination with known allergens. We would often call the toll-free numbers on products without allergens listed, only to be told that they could not guarantee the product didn't come into contact with nuts. That's very scary, because a study was done several years ago to see how much peanut protein was in products that did not contain nuts, but were produced on shared equipment making products that did. Between 7% and 11% tested positive for peanut proteins. That's an unacceptable risk for people with allergies. It's also why programs like Snack Safely are so important.
I want people everywhere to be able to enjoy the foods they love, and know where their food comes from. I want families to be able to cook and share meals together. We've become a culture of convenience foods that really aren't convenient at all and it's making us all sick, tired and unhealthy. It doesn't take longer to make real food with real ingredients at home than it does to use packaged foods that are designed to leave us feeling hungry so we buy more of it. We've bought into a lie - that we don't have time to cook and eat meals together. So my dream for Nutracelle is to give people a way to connect with each other again and naturally feel full with the meals we prepare.
Educating yourself and your child is the most important. Understanding the risks with food labels and where food is manufactured. And learning to manage people who don't understand the risks. As a parent of a child with allergies, well-meaning family and friends don't understand the risks and they can easily feel offended when you have to tell them the food they make is not safe for your child. As a parent, if you find it hard to say no, imagine how much harder that is for your child. Everything from parents bringing doughnuts to hockey or judo matches, to dealing with food at birthday parties and sleep-overs - both you and your child need to be able to recognize when something isn't safe, and speak up without offending people and say no when there is a risk something isn't safe. That's really hard when so many people don't see nuts, so they believe it must be safe and we are just overreacting.
All of our ingredients, including our flavours, stevia, fiber and protein are all produced in nut-free facilities. Our products are made in a nut-free facility. So there is no chance of cross-contamination. In our industry, this is very rare. Many ingredients from other products are made in facilities that also process allergens, so it's not enough that our product is nut-free, it has to be nut-free all through the supply chain.
That's why I'm so proud that Nutracelle is the only nut-free protein available anywhere. It's about time people with allergies can enjoy nutritious food without having to worry if it will kill them or someone they love.

Love this flavor! Definitely appeals to my sweet tooth!
When I opened the bag I couldn't believe how GOOD it smells! It really smells just like fresh picked strawberries. And there are REAL Strawberry flecks in it!!! I watched Melanie's webinar and she said there were dried real strawberries in it, but I didn't realize she meant actual strawberries in it!! omg! I was kind of worried that it would taste like that nestle strawberry milk syrup but it doesn't - it just tastes like you are eating real strawberries. I love that it's not too sweet too. Anyway, if you are thinking about trying it and you like strawberries, you will love this one! I'm changing my monthly order now to make sure I get a bag every month along with the natural I use in everything I eat. I've lost about 7 pounds in the last two months and I just fit back into my favourite jeans again so I'm pumped to get to keep the weight off with strawberry now too! Thank you Nutracelle (and Melanie and Tracy!)
I absolutely love my new cookbook! Such a great selection of recipes and so far every single one I've made is fantastic! Thank you Melanie
The old nutralean was so good and the new blend is even better. Did not thing protein nutralean could get better man it’s better!! And my 2 & 1 year old know what I’m drinking and take my drink all the time for themselves. Love It!!!!
Absolutely loving the new formulas. They mix beautifully with water now... and they taste amazing!
I have trouble finding protein powder I don’t hate. I bought the cafe mocha and chocolate dream to try and didn’t expect to love it but I do!!! It was amazing! No weird after taste or texture. It also came with a shaker cup! I love that the ingredients are all things that I know. Plus it’s made in Canada!
Love these protein powders. Love the recipes...easy and quick!!!
So happy with my product. It’s a great product for anyone who’s on the go and always busy. I can rest easy knowing I’m getting good nutrients, that also taste yummy!
WOW!!! I’m sipping a Pumpkin Spice Smoothie as I’m typing this review. I received my order of the new formulas today and was excited to try it! I’m so impressed with the smooth, creamy consistency and the ease that it blends! 2 thumbs up from me!!!
This will hands down always be my go-to choice for anything protein related. I am glad it does not even taste like i am having a protein supplement. Since I don't enjoy eating meat often, this is the best alternative!
I love the taste! Even when you mix it with just water it has a creamy taste. You can do so much with the variety of flavours, you can not possibly get bored with Nutracelle!
Absolutely the best shake i have ever tried. Such great flavors... I love it! ☺
Product works when you follow guidelines. Always weighed at Doctor's office
believe it or not i've lost 51 lbs in 9 weeks. 30lbs to go...
My whole family loves Nutralean! Great taste and quick shipping.
Nutracelle products are great! Mixes amazingly! No grittiness like those other whey powders. Naturla Nutralean prebiotic protein for baking works awesome to make not just baking, but also make shakes and protein balls. The plain flavour allows incorporation into food without tasting that there is protein powder in it! I would recommend this product to those looking for a good quality protein powder!!
I can literally put it everywhere, whatever food i make i can add some natural protein in it, soup, bake goods, protein balls, pizza dough, etc.
Its amazing and so tasty
I have been in a stall between 208 and 202 for 5 months....in one week of being back on Nutracelle I am now in ONEDERLAND!
The taste and quality of nutracelle is absolutely unparalleled in the protein market. I recommend it to all my friends and family and having been using it daily for almost 2 years now. And still in love!
The Vanilla Cream is a great flavour added to any of my favourite smoothie recipes! Also makes a nice tasting pancake recipe.
Natural Nutralean from Nutracelle is the perfect protein to add to your food!! There is no added taste!! I made a zucchini meat pasta and added 2 scoops of Natural into my meat sauce!! Not only did it give me and my family all the protein we needed for dinner, but it cut back our portion sizes because we felt fuller faster! We have leftovers now for lunches!! I am so happy with my Nutracelle!
The Vanilla Mocha from Nutracelle is to die for!!! If you are like me and need my coffee every morning to function...then this is for you, as it will give you all the energy you need!! It even taste just like something I can get from Tim Horton's but this is good for you to drink every morning!! This is a must for coffee lovers!!!
The Chocolate Dream Protein from Nutracelle is soooo good. Chocolate is my all time favourite snack and with Nutracelle I am able to make these delicious desserts that are actually good for you! This is a must flavour to have!!
Meal plan is realistic and absolutely manageable. My coach checks in post every workout to see if there is any area I struggle in or if maybe the routine was too easy. He is quick at answering any questions I have and is very knowleageable with nutrition and what my body needs to eat and can explain it to me in various ways to make sure I understand as well. I have never worked with someone who is so passionate about fitness and proper nutrition as well as someone who is on top of everything. App is also very user-friendly; super easy to log everything in with a few click so that you dont have to do it urself on paper. Absolutely thrilled to be working with this team to better my fitness life. Highly recommend joining the team!
Nutracelle's Weight Loss kit has made such a huge impact on my life! I was a junk food junky before I found Nutracelle, and now I don't even think about it! It's been months since I've had any kind of junk and I've never felt better! More energy, tons of weight loss, and I've dropped 2 clothing sizes too!! AMAZING!
The weightloss kit has enabled me to wake up each morning knowing that I've got this!! For the first time in my life I've found something that allows me to feel full and satisfied and I can bake and cook with it to curb cravings I have for junky foods! In my first two months I'm down 15 pounds and dropping. Almost everyday there is a decrease on the scale I couldn't be happier!! I'm looking forward to continued success THANK YOU NUTRACELLE!
Nutracelle is the best product I have ever used for protein. All the flavours are fantastic, can't taste the protein. Since I started to take Nutracelle I have consistent energy throughout the day, it keeps me full and satisfied. My recovery from my workouts and running is fantastic. Recommend this product to anyone wanting to lose weight, athletes or to increase your protein intake daily.
Shakes are amazing. I just mix them with (sugar-free) milk and have no problem drinking them. Like at all! I even love the chocolate. I never ever love chocolate protein shakes haha
This Whey protein powder is the most amazing and the most delicious that I have ever tasted.....with it having 30 grams of protein and 10 grams of prebiotic fiber in one serving, not many meals have that so a great way to get that into your diet.....It mixes very well with no clumping and doesn't have the chalky after taste. I find that is is very easy on my stomach as I am lactose intolerant and I have no issues what so ever, it has actually helped with my stomach issues....Love that it mixes very well with just water! I also Love that it is so versatile that I am not just limited to the shakes, that I can use it in my baking and cooking . If I could give it 10 Stars I would.
I have been on nutracelle since January 2017 and absolutely love it!
I'm losing weight and inches, I have so much more energy and it makes me happy! Nutracelle is giving me my life back! #ilovenutracelle
Nutracelle has been the one product that has kept me on track with my weight loss journey. So easy to incorporate into my daily routine and it tastes amazing! Almost all of my immediate family all use and love Nutracelle too!
It tastes amazing & reduces cravings! I'm breastfeeding and was finding my cravings worse than when I was pregnant. I needed something to eat with my meals to help me stay full, be nutritious and curb cravings. This is it!
