For over 70 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 nutritional information for our doughnuts on this site.
Our doughnuts are suitable for vegetarians who follow an ovo-lacto vegetarian diet.
Our doughnuts are certified as suitable for a Halal diet by the Halal Food Authority.
Some of the flavours we use do contain a small amount of ethyl alcohol, an essential ingredient used for many flavourings commonly used in food production as a 'carrier' and this evaporates during the cooking process.
We consider our products to be suitable for anyone who follows a Kosher diet, however we are not Kosher certified.
We do not use any hydrogenated vegetable oils so there are no artificial transfats in our doughnuts.
Artificial Flavours and Colours
We do not use any artificial colours in our products. We are currently reviewing flavourings and preservatives with our suppliers and removing any artificial additives where possible. If you require information regarding specific ingredients please let us know.
Free Range Eggs
Unfortunately Krispy Kreme do not use free range eggs at the moment, but we are looking into the possibility with our suppliers.
Currently we do not have any plans to make sugar-free products. While it is not feasible at the moment, there may be technological advances in the future which could provide us with opportunities in this area.
We use 100% vegetable shortening in our doughnuts. This is a blend of palm and high-oleic sunflower oils.
Currently, we cannot guarantee that the palm oil used within Krispy Kreme products is always from a sustainable source, however we recognise the importance of palm oil in providing for an ever growing population and it is vital to us that we source ingredients in a way that makes a difference. The supplier we use is a founding and key member of the Round Table for Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) and we are continuing to work closely with them on this process. Sustainable sourcing of raw materials is part of our ongoing strategy together, and we do recognise a need for continuing progress towards full sustainability in the palm oil supply chain.
Our supplier is currently undertaking various strategies to ensure it obtains the right raw materials - as well as being a founding member of RSPO, it conducts regular audits of all additional suppliers, and third party auditors.
Their Supplier Code of Conduct includes a requirement for all raw material suppliers to adhere to fundamental UN Global Compact principles of labour and human rights, environmental protection and anti-corruption and to national laws in the country in which the supplier conducts its activities.
We continue to move towards full sustainability in our palm oil supply chain and are in dialogue with concerned parties including Forest Heroes, Sum of Us, Greenpeace, Union of Concerned Scientists and Rainforest Action Network.
- Our doughnuts contain: Eggs, Milk, Cereals (Wheat, Barley Gluten) & Soya
- Some will also contain nuts, peanuts & sulphites
- Our doughnuts also contain: antioxidants, colours, flavourings & preservatives
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 due to cross-contamination. We do of course try to limit the risk of cross contamination in our factories and stores, but we cannot guarantee that any of our products are nut free.
Gluten is present in all of our products since one of our main ingredients is wheat flour. At this time, producing a gluten free doughnut would create a product very different in taste and in texture to the Krispy Kreme doughnuts our customers have enjoyed for more than seventy-five years. So, whilst this is not something that is feasible right now, there may be technological advances in the future that could provide us opportunities to create a gluten free product that will live up to the high expectations our customers have.
