The A-Z of nut free food

Are you searching for safe foods for your nut allergic child? Whether you are hunting for nut free baby food, biscuits or birthday cake … looking for safe ingredients to cook from scratch or for ready meal brands you can trust … find suggestions here, in the Nutmums.com nut free food directory!

Below is an A-Z list of food manufacturers, which includes both:

  • Dedicated “nut free” food brands; and
  • Details of other food manufacturers which, according to their product labels or information on their website, do produce some nut free products.

Manufacturers do change their recipes (and their production arrangements), so please do check the product label for yourself each time, and make your own enquiries of the manufacturer, if you are in any doubt about whether something is safe.

I will add to the list as I come across more nut free brands and products … and do let me know if you have any product recommendations!

  1. I live in Australia and after years of suffering have just found that I have nut allergies. Constantly reading labels is my past time now and I just wanted to say that here in Australia Oreos “may contain traces of nuts” like all other brands of biscuits.

  2. This is such a useful website. I have a granddaughter with a severe nut allergy coming to stay and it has been invaluable in helping me sort out which food stuffs are safe for her.

  3. Hi again, just to let you know i went into sainsburys earlier to buy Batkat icecream cones and they now say “may contain nuts”, so i guess thats bye bye to another product from the limited range of nut free foods.
    Thanks

  4. Does anybody know a safe brand for cheese? Cheddar cheese especially. My boyfriend usually has Kerry Gold but they don’t have that near him, so we are looking for another brand.. Thank you!!
