LONDON BASED HEALTHY SNACKS COMPANY ABAKUS FOODS INTRODUCES SEAWEED CRISPS WITH A REAL CRUNCH!
Seaweed Crisps produced by Abakus Foods are made of seaweed harvested from the deep blue seas of South Korea, and coated with a thin layer of crunchy tapioca to create the crunchiest seaweed snack. Seasoned with three tantalising flavours Lightly Salted, Salt & Vinegar, and Cheese Flavour these yummy crisps are made without any nasties and wonderfully gluten-free and vegan.
Harnessing the power of natural foods, the Seaweed Crisps combine nutritious seaweed with wholesome tapioca to offer a snack with health benefits. Seaweed is known for its vitamin and mineral content, and is a source of iodine which helps support cognitive function and functioning of the nervous system. Tapioca, extracted from the roots of the cassava plant, is a “resistant starch” which feeds the friendly gut-bacteria to the gut, thereby reducing inflammation and increasing fullness.
Helen Wang, Abakus Foods’ Founder and Director said: “We created this range out of our love for the nutritious seaweed”
The Seaweed Crisps have an RRP of £1.29 per bag and are on www.abakusfoods.com
POPCORN SHED LAUNCHES SNACK REVOLUTION WITH THE FIRST EVER MINI POPCORN RANGE!
Trendy gourmet popcorn start-up, Popcorn Shed is delighted to announce the launch of a brand new, innovative mini popcorn.
MiniPop! is different because it uses a white popcorn grain that pops to around ½ the size of regular popcorn but has all the benefits of usual sized popcorn and more!
This makes the kernels small and tender, with a thinner hull than regular popcorns, that break up on popping and virtually disintegrate when chewed. This means they don’t get stuck in your teeth, like regular popcorn does, which improves the eating experience.
Available in five delicious low calorie popular flavours, including Sweet & Salty, Toffee, Salted, Salt & Vinegar and gourmet White Truffle.
The brand new and exclusive mini range is low calorie and the perfect snack to enjoy during the day.
MiniPop! is the first fully vegan popcorn line in the UK, is gluten free and is easy to digest and, of course, absolutely delicious.
Popcorn Shed’s new MiniPop! range will add to the company’s existing product lines, that centre around fantastic tasting gourmet flavours perfect as a treat or to give as a gift.
‘We are delighted to be the first to launch Mini popcorn in the UK and to offer our customers a healthy snack that not only tastes great but is kinder to teeth and tummies.
