What Food Allergens are in Paella? 

As a professional Paella caterer, I am often asked about any food allergens that may be in a Paella. Not all Paellas contain the same ingredients so it will vary from Paella to Paella depending on what the Paella chef uses to create the Paella.

What Food Allergens are in Paella?

So what typical ingredients go into making a Paella? (Please be aware that other ingredients may be in a Paella, so if you do have any food allergens, it's highly recommended that you check with the source of any Paella that you intend to eat.)

  • Rice
  • chicken
  • rabbit
  • Chorizo sausage (Pork)
  • onion
  • peppers
  • vegetable stock
  • Tomato
  • Paella seasoning (Always check the sachet for any food allergens)
  • Peas
  • Shellfish

The above list is in my opinion what's typical, but Paella can contain many other ingredients.

What are the 14 food allergens listed on the food.gov.uk website? Below is the list taken from their website. Allergens are in BOLD type

The 14 allergens are: celerycereals containing gluten (such as wheat, barley and oats), crustaceans (such as prawns, crabs and lobsters), eggsfishlupinmilkmolluscs (such as mussels and oysters), mustardpeanutssesamesoybeanssulphur dioxide and sulphites (if the sulphur dioxide and sulphites are at a concentration of more than ten parts per million) and tree nuts (such as almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, brazil nuts, cashews, pecans, pistachios and macadamia nuts).

Only one of the Paellas that Your Paella create contain a listed food allergen, that is our Mixed Paella. Our Mixed Paella contains mixed shellfish, crustaceans.

None of the other Paellas contain any of the 14 listed food allergens.

One of the main food allergens that we are asked if it is contained in Your Paella, Paellas is gluten. None of the Paellas we create contain gluten.
