Peanuts and other nuts in Home Ice Cream products

All products are made in a production plant that also manufactures products containing peanuts and other tree nuts.

Due to the possible use of common lines, the possibility of traces of nuts cannot be totally eliminated from all products.

 

*Some products are listed as a nut free recipe, as they do not contain any nuts in the recipe, and are made first after the mix plant, pipe work, vats and machines have been washed and sanitised. 

GMO Status of Home Ice Cream products

None of the ingredients used in our products contain Genetically Modified Organisms.

Halal Enquires

The majority of the flavours that we use contain alcohol, which is used as a carrier for the flavour compounds. Products which do not contain alcohol based flavours are listed as being “Halal suitable not Halal Certified”.

Emulsifiers (407, 410, 412, 460 and 471) are from vegetable origins.

Animal Products

Home Ice Cream products do not contain any animal fat (i.e. Lard, dripping, edible tallow, etc.). The fat in our ice creams comes from milk fat. The Emulsifiers (407, 410, 412, 460 and 471) are from vegetable origins.

Gelatine is found only in the Hokey Pokey Duo cones and Cotton Candy Ball Top Cone.

The Apple Pie contains margarine made from animal and vegetable fats.

No Eggs are used in our ingredients. However the “Traces of Egg” warning is found on some products, as they may have come in contact with ingredients, which were made on a machine used to make other products containing eggs (e.g. the oven / conveyor used to bake biscuits).
