For over 80 years, customers have been enjoying Krispy Kreme doughnuts made from premium ingredients. In order to keep you as informed as we can, we have included allergen & nutritional information for our doughnuts on this site.



We are proud to make our doughnuts fresh daily and due to the nature of our manufacturing processes we cannot guarantee that any of our products are free from allergens as we use many ingredients and shared equipment.

Our doughnuts are not suitable for customers with an allergy to cereals containing gluten (wheat, rye, barley), egg, milk, soya, nuts, peanuts and sulphites due to manufacturing methods.

If you have a query about any other ingredient, please ask a member of our in store team or contact our Customer Care team.

Nuts and Peanuts

Please be aware that some of our products do contain peanuts and other nuts. These are clearly labelled in store. All our doughnuts therefore do carry a risk that they may contain nuts and are therefore not suitable for nut and peanut allergy sufferers due to manufacturing methods. If you would like to find out more about the products, please see individual doughnut pages on this website.


Wheat flour is used in the base of our classic doughnut recipe. Therefore all our doughnuts aren’t suitable for those requiring a gluten-free diet. However feel free to treat yourself to our mouth-watering milkshakes and ice cream or even a steaming hot coffee!


All eggs used here at Krispy Kreme are 100% free-range. We also ensure all of the eggs used in our products are pasteurised and are safe for consumption by everyone including pregnant women.


Although we here at Krispy Kreme love a little tipple, our current range of doughnuts does not any contain alcohol and is safe to be consumed and enjoyed by all of our customers.

Artificial Flavours and Colours

We like to keep it natural and original here at Krispy Kreme, therefore we do not use artificial colours or flavours within any of our core products. In the event that you are purchasing any of our delicious doughnuts from our Exclusive Celebration range or for corporate events, some toppers that are used may contain an artificial colouring.

Trans Fat

We actively avoid the use of artificial trans fats within our products. However in some cases, if trans fats are present, there will only be so in small traces in specific products.

Vegetable Shortening

We love seeing our stunning doughnuts sizzling away in our fryers turning the beautiful golden colour you are used to seeing, to do this we use 100% vegetable shortening in our doughnut, made of a blend of palm and high-oleic sunflower oils.

Palm Oil

Krispy Kreme are completely committed to responsible and sustainable use of Palm Oil. We have complete traceability of any Palm Oil we use and 99.35% of it is from sustainable sources. Where it is not possible to source sustainable Palm Oil we offset by purchasing credits. We are focused on reaching a goal of 100% sustainable Palm Oil in the future, and are dedicated to continuous improvement in this area as a key part of our sustainability agenda.
