Winners of the 2016 awards
presented by Antony Worrall Thompson on 26th April 2016 at the Royal College of Physicians in London
Foods suitable for nut and peanut allergics – Sponsored by Wellaby's
BFree Multiseed Bagels
‘Fab appearance – really seedy! Great that it excludes so many allergens (gluten, dairy, egg, nut and sesame) although maybe shame that it does include pea protein as it can cause cross reactions. Texture OK but very much better warm and really good toasted!'
BFree Soft White Rolls
‘Decent taste and great to see a gluten, egg and nut free roll. Suspect it would work much better warm or filled but a good colour and looks totally 'normal'. Fills a great gap by excluding so many allergens.'
Conserve Della Nonna Green Pesto
'Lovely rich flavour and fab to have a nut-free pesto – but – it would be good if it said on the packaging that the pine nuts had been processed in a nut-free factory. So often pine nuts are processed with other nuts thus raising a contamination issue.'
D&D Chocolates Dairy Free Chocolate Drops
'Really attractive embossed design – good dark chocolate and could have many uses. Ticks all the allergen boxes, including soya.'
Smart Eats & Treats Seeded Loaf
‘Wonderful to see a bread product that is free from gluten, egg, nuts and sesame traces – fills an important gap in the market. Nice flavour, moist, crunchy seeds – has the look, feel and aste of a homemade loaf.'
Truly Chocolates Lego Chocolates
‘Lovely friendly chocolate – fun – and free from all the major allergens including soya.'
