Nut free food: sauces, dressings and ingredients

Are you looking for a nut free curry sauce? Or a safe salad dressing? Or perhaps a bag of nut free flour?

If so, check out the list below 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!

Please see the main nut free food page, for a complete alphabetised list of all the nut free food brands listed on

  1. We have been distributing here in the UK, going very well as a nutfree peanut butter spread in Ocado, Tesco, Holland & Barrett etc.

    We now have a satay version, in bulk or in protected sachets for ready meals to coatings chicken/fish/proteins.Do you think there is a market in the UK for a nutfree satay?

    Great with vinegar as a dressing too!
    Comments greatly appreciated prior to launch
