The free from navigation will refer you to products which do not contain the named allergen(s) in the ingredients listed. However, it does not guarantee that the products have not been contaminated by those allergens; and they may have been manufactured or stored in an environment where those allergens are present. In addition, product ingredients and place of manufacture can change. Please ensure you read all packaging and labels carefully on each occasion before consuming/using the products.



The “free from” sections will display products that are free from the specified allergen as an ingredient. Some of the products displayed however may be at risk of containing traces of the allergen due to manufacturing process. Therefore, severe allergy sufferers should select the extra checkbox “free of traces of” to eliminate the products that may contain trace amounts of the specified allergen. We also advise that you always review the actual product packaging for allergen warnings before consuming the product.

We have had a number of customers contact us asking about why items are featuring on the ‘Free From Nut’ page that contain Peanuts. Peanuts and Nuts are classed as 2 separate allergens and we have therefore filtered them as such. What we will do however is add in an additional filter so all customers can search by ‘Free From Nuts and Peanuts’ to make this an easier and more enjoyable shopping experience.



What are peanuts?

Peanut (Arachis hypogaea) is a member of the legume (bean) family. Other members of this family include soya beans, lentils and garden peas. It is rare for a peanut allergic person to react to soya or other beans and legumes, but many peanut allergic people will also be allergic to other tree nuts, for example brazil or hazel nuts, which are genetically unrelated. Peanuts grow from the ground rather than on trees, and are sometimes referred to as ground nuts.



What are ‘nuts’?

Nuts/Tree Nuts are actually a type of seed from plants, and come from a wide variety of different botanical families such as Rosaceae (almonds), Anacardiaceae (cashews), Proteaceae (macadamia nuts) or Lecythidaceae (Brazil nuts).


The distinction between tree nut and seed is not always clear. We often think of seeds as small seeds - like sesame seed, sunflower seed, poppy seed or pumpkin seed. In fact, coconut (including the husk and inner white flesh that we eat) is also a seed, albeit a very large one! This may explain why coconut is considered to be a tree nut in USA but a seed elsewhere.
