They never feature any ‘may contain’ so that you can snack safely with confidence. With an indulgent variety of delicious sweet and savoury snacks to choose from, you’ll never have to compromise on taste again!

FAQs

What is a food allergy?

A food allergy is an immune system reaction that occurs when your body has mistaken a food protein as a threat. This is an unusual and adverse response - even a small amount of the allergy-causing food can cause mild to life-threatening symptoms.

What are the 14 major allergens?

The 14 major food allergens are celery, cereals containing gluten, crustaceans, eggs, fish, lupin, milk, molluscs, mustard, peanuts, sesame, soybeans, sulphur dioxide and sulphites and tree nuts.

What are the common symptoms of a food allergy?

Allergic reactions to food allergies often vary from person to person. The NHS notes that some common symptoms include an itchy feeling inside the mouth, throat or ears, an itchy rash, swelling or vomiting. When someone has an extreme allergic reaction, this can result in anaphylaxis which can cause breathing difficulties. This is extremely serious and can be life-threatening.

How do I know if something is safe for me to eat?

Food businesses have to let customers know if any products contain one of the 14 major allergens. On pre-packed food and drink in the UK, you can spot any allergens on the ingredients list – these are usually in bold to make them easier to see. Some packing may state that the ingredients ‘may contain…’ or are not suitable for those with certain food allergies. You should not eat food labelled in this way if you have a food allergy. If you’re eating out, or buying loose food, you must be provided with the relevant allergen information by the establishment. At Healthy Nibbles we’ve done all of the hard work for you. All of our snacks in the Free-From Boxes are totally safe for those with even the most severe food allergies – with no ‘may contains’ always guaranteed and free-from the 14 major food allergens.
