Quinoa Smoothie
  • Cow’s milk-free and lactose-free

    Take care when a product is marked lactose-free; it may still contain cow’s milk proteins because it is possible to buy lactose-free milk.

  • Egg-free

    Does not contain eggs, but where a recipe does contain eggs, they can often be replaced by an egg substitute.

  • Fish-free

    The recipe does not contain fish.

  • Gluten-free

    Made from flour from which the gluten has been removed, or which has been made low in gluten and free of cereals such as wheat, rye, spelt or kamut.

  • Nut-free

    This refers to actual nuts. It may be confusing, but peanuts are not included in this group!

  • Peanut-free

    Peanuts are in fact legumes that grow under the ground.

  • Shellfish and crustacean-free

    The recipe does not contain any shellfish or crustaceans.

  • Soya-free

    but be careful with vegetarian variants of dishes, because soya is often incorporated into vegetarian meat substitutes.
