Allergens

I offer a wide range of foods to help offer an interesting delivery each time. Not sure what allergens are in each food and how these are prepared? I can explain more about ingredients, preparation and labelling. Speak up for allergies every time. More details below.

Ingredients

All ingredients I use are recorded to make sure any information for enquiries from allergen customers are current and accurate. It is my responsibility to be clear about the allergens my products contain and it is your responsibility to tell me about your allergy or intolerance. These details will be requested when you ask to sign up for a subscription. The sourdoughs are vegan friendly and many of the soups are dairy free or the dairy can be left out. I do not currently offer a gluten free subscription due to the traces of gluten that would be present in the kitchen, oven and equipment that makes gluten bread.

Preparation

All of the food from The Doorstep Baker is prepared without using tree nuts or peanuts. Please let me know if you have any nut or other food allergy, when buying from me. For the remaining top allergens and many further allergens that exist, the risk of contamination can be managed with operating procedures and equipment in mind, except for wheat gluten. For life threatening allergies please contact me first before considering any subscription. Safety is paramount and it is essential to be clear about this for life threatening allergies.

Labelling

Since Natasha’s Law new allergen labelling regulations are in force since October 2021 and I very much welcome this change. See the Food Standards Agency for more details. The Doorstep Baker records allergy details given about yourself before food is prepared. I also list the full ingredients on each product’s packaging that is delivered. I also do this for any pre packaged food I sell at Farmers Markets. The top 14 allergens are listed in bold or ingredients containing them. Please speak up for allergies every time. It is never a bother and protecting yourself and others is top priority.

Please visit the contact page to email me about your allergie(s) or intolerance before ordering
