Free from panettoni have begun to hit the shelves!
Here is a round-up of those I’ve found so far in the main supermarkets and usual ‘free from’ panettone outlets in 2021. There may be more to come, and I’ll be adding to this round-up throughout the rest of October and early-mid November.
And we don’t seem to be any nearer a panettone free from all 14 declarable allergens either … Anyone?
Free From Italy (GoVegan! / Probios)
Free From Italy, who import GoVegan! and Probios panettoni, have a selection of eight this year, including two gluten-free options. The rest are vegan but are free from a number of allergens.
Click here to see whether any might be appropriate for your needs, and perhaps check before ordering re: ‘may contain’.
This year Tesco appear to be only stocking the Schar Gluten Free Panettone with Raisins (£7; 420g). Contains: egg and milk. May contain: soya and mustard. Click here.
Ocado have two options:
The Probios Organic Vegan Panettone (£9.99/300g) (contains cereals containing gluten; may contain traces of soy). Click here.
And the Nomma Plant Based Panettone (£6.50/750g) (contains wheat and soy; may contain milk, egg, nuts, peanuts). Click here.
Gluten Free Panettone (600g, £18.95) — GF; contains eggs, milk, sulphur; “new recipe” and no PAL information provided on website; double check, especially if you have bought in previous years); click here.
So far, only the Vergani Vegan Panettone (£10/750g) (contains wheat and soy; may contain milk, eggs, ‘nuts’ / ‘tree nuts’). Click here.
Gluten Free Italian Panettone with Raisins (400g, £16.99) — gluten-free only; contains wheat (starch / GF Codex), milk, eggs; may contain nuts.
Interesting as this is the only GF panettone I’ve been able to find using Codex wheat starch, therefore NOT suitable for those with wheat allergy.
Available from Amazon UK.
Italian online food deli Vorrei stock the Evvivo Organic Handmade Vegan Panettone (500g, £19.90 — £3 more expensive than it was last year!) — vegan, milk free, egg free; contains wheat, oat, barley; may contain nuts, sesame, soya; click here.
These were available in 2020, and may become available again ….
Gluten Free Panettone (500g, £14.99) — GF; contains egg, milk; no may contain warnings last year, but no ingredients provided on The Italian Shop website. Click here.
Vegan Organic Panettone Classic (500g, £14.99) — vegan only; contains wheat gluten, barley; may contain soya / made in a factory with nuts, peanuts, sesame, milk, eggs; Ocado.
Vegan Organic Panettone Classic (100g, £3.99) — vegan only; contains wheat gluten, barley; may contain soya / made in a factory with nuts, peanuts, sesame, milk, eggs; Ocado.
Both the above, as well as Chocolate Panettone equivalents, are also available from Planet Organic.
Note that these are not allergy friendly panettoni: vegan only.
