Using our diet and lifestyle search function Our food preference search function has been designed to help you match relevant products on our grocery website and app to specific dietary or lifestyle food and drink needs. We work with a team of nutritionists who regularly review the food products we sell to make sure they fit your dietary profile. However, food products are frequently reformulated, ingredients may change and manufacturers’ data may be incorrect or incomplete. That’s why we’re constantly reviewing and updating the filters. OGS Free From products are produced under controlled conditions to ensure their product claims are valid and not misleading, making them the ideal fit for a diet with specific needs. The search results displayed will contain products from both the Tesco Free From range as well as other products that have been identified as not containing a specified allergen as an ingredient. Bear in mind that other products and filters have been collated by reviewing their ingredients list and any ‘may contain’ labelling, so while they won’t contain a specified allergen, they may not have been produced under controlled conditions. That means we can’t guarantee they’re suitable for a specific dietary need. Our search function is all about saving you time and identifying potentially suitable food but shouldn’t be used as an alternative to medical advice and carrying out your own checks. We recommend that you don’t just rely on information provided on any list and always check product labels. Specific filter info:
