Are Walkers Shortbread products Kosher?  

  • All products are Kosher OUD except Glenfiddich Whisky Shortbread Rounds, Mincemeat Tarts, Plum Puddings and Cakes.

Why is there a nut allergy phrase?

  • The nut allergy phrase is printed on the pack as a precaution. Some nut free shortbreads are baked on the same production lines as shortbread containing nuts and despite cleaning and safety there is still a rare possibility that nut fragments could enter the product. However, you can be assured we do not use peanuts or their derivatives in any of our products.

 Do your products contain trans fats?

  • Walkers' shortbread, Scottish cookies and oat crackers trans fats per serving are generally zero for each of our products as stated on each product's nutritional statement. However, low levels of trans fats naturally occur in the milk of ruminant animals such as cows and sheep.  Since our authentic, high quality shortbread is made with real butter, it has these naturally occurring trans fats. They are not considered harmful as fats formed during artificial hydrogenation. Also, note that Walkers products do not contain any hydrogenated vegetable oils.

 Does the butter in your shortbread contain growth hormones or antibiotics?

  • No, none at all.

 What is Sodium Diphosphate?

  • Sodium Diphosphate is a raising agent and is present in baking powder. It is also known as Acid Sodium Pyrophosphate.
