Tree of Life Protein Pasta

Picking up on the trend for high protein products, we’ve just launched this brand new range of high protein, gluten-free and organic pastas. Made from 100% legumes they pack a protein punch with up to 26% plant protein per serving. Available in three varieties: Red Lentil Fusilli, Green Pea Penne and Chick Pea Gnocchetti, they’re a perfect simple switch for a healthier diet.

 PBfit Peanut Butter Powder

This natural peanut butter powder has proved very popular and why wouldn’t it, when it offers all the great taste of peanut butter but with 87% less fat and about 1/3 the calories of traditional peanut butter. And because it’s a powder, it’s easier to use in smoothies for a delicious protein boost, in baking and of course simply mixed with water to spread on toast. The range also includes a chocolate variety and a new organic version.

Fody Foods

It is estimated that between 10-15% of the global population live with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and 75% of those see symptom relief following a low FODMAP diet. FODY Food Co. have taken the stress and guess work out of which foods to avoid by creating a delicious, gut-friendly, low FODMAP range of snacks, sauces and kitchen staples. Launched in November, the range is generating a lot of interest
and sales are off to a flying start.
