Found: nut free mincemeat

Just a quick post to say that, if you are hunting for nut free mincemeat, I have now found nut free versions made by Duerr’s and Robertson’s. (As always, I hasten to add, please do check the product label for yourself each time).


I blogged last week that, having purchased a jar of Duerr’s mincemeat (which appeared safe from the label), I then read on their website that it “may contain traces of nuts”.

I contacted Duerr’s to find out the score. They replied very quickly, confirming that, although they made nut-containing mincemeat in the past, their current mincemeat:

“does not require a nut warning as there is no possibility of cross contamination; the production site is a nut free site”

Their website refers to the old version and will be updated.


Thanks to a tip off from Cheryl and Steph, I contacted Robertson’s to double check their mincemeat was safe and received confirmation that:

“our mincemeat is nut free, and our factory is a controlled site, with no nuts being permitted on site.”

Other nut free options?

I mentioned in my post on nut free Christmas food that It’s Nut Free sell mincemeat.

I’ve also heard from a fellow allergy mum that Marks & Spencer mincemeat (the “classic” rather than the “luxury” version) is also nut safe, if you would like to check it out.

Now all you need is a recipe…

  1. I note that you say Robertson’s Classic Mincemeat does not contain nuts. The label indicates contains nut meg ? is nut meg not a nut.
