Linwoods’ range of super food blends provides a natural source of Omega oils, dietary fibre, vitamins, antioxidants and minerals. By sprinkling on a range of meals throughout the day - whether its breakfast cereals, salad, or hot meals – one serving can nearly double your nutrition intake. Combined with an everyday healthy diet, the range composed of 11 combinations is an easy way to increase your daily dose of nutrients and goodness.
Products include nutritious blends, such as Chia Seeds, Flaxseeds, Goji Berries, Hemp Seeds and a range of nuts – all of which can be used to sprinkle across meals from breakfast through to dinner.
Sprinkling is easy, healthy and effective:
Porridge (Oats) for example, a nation’s favorite in the morning is considered a healthy breakfast option. Despite a high level of minerals, one single portion of porridge (50g) only contains 0.05g of Fatty acid Omega 3. Essential fatty acids contribute to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels and by adding two full spoon of Linwoods’ Flaxseed & Goji berries blend in your morning porridge you will gain an impressive +4.47g of Omega 3 - and it only takes two sprinkles!
Flaxseed is one of nature’s richest plant sources of Omega 3. The Linwoods Flaxseed with Bio Cultures is packed with Vitamin D, also known as the “sunlight vitamin”, essential for healthy bones. All its super food blends have been cold-milled so your body can easily absorb the nutritional benefits straight away.
Additionally, Chia seed, with its amazing nutritional offering, is the ultimate super food and one of the highest natural sources of dietary fibre. It is also a natural source of Omega 3. Hemp seed is high in protein and energy-boosting iron important for oxygen transport in the body and the formation of red blood cells.
By cold-milling the products, the omega oils found in the seeds are protected and the body is better able to absorb all the nutrients in their milled format. Each blend is also Gluten Free, Non-GMO, Low GI and have no added sugar.
As the nation’s appetite for exciting dishes and flavours from around the world continues to thrive, the intrepid explorers from the Emporium of Tyrrells have been scouring the globe for the finest cache of exotic and mouth-wateringly moreish snacks to add to their carefully curated collection.
The new Tyrrells Nibbles collection comprises natural corn, rice, nuts and pea bites seasoned with delectable flavours from far flung places. The perfect accompaniment to an evening tipple, whether it’s a delicious craft beer, crisp glass of cold white wine or a classic G&T.
Nibbles like no other, the range explores four distinctive flavours:
- Hoisin and Ginger Rice Crackers – Sweet yet salty Asian-style rice crackers with a pleasing crunch and the gentle warmth of ginger.
- Thai Chilli Rice Puffs – Positively piquant puffs of fancy fried rice with a soupçon of sweetness and a building chilli heat.
- Wasabi Peanuts – The choicest peanuts coated in a satisfyingly crisp shell, spiked with nose-tingling wasabi, a Japanese institution.
- Giant Salted Corn – Stupendous kernels of top-notch corn roasted till satisfyingly crunchy then simply salted.
- Yassa Spiced Peas – Sensationally savoury spiced and roasted peas with the addictive zip of Yassa, inspired by Senegal. A nibble like no other.
