Innovative brand Nudie Snacks has chosen wonky vegetables to market a new product made from fresh produce that would usually have been discarded. The company’s Caulifower Crisps are made from 40% fresh cauliflower grown in Scotland and come in two different flavours – cheese and caramelised onion and katsu curry.
The Ayrshire brand says the crisps are in line with its ethos of producing quality plant-based snacks that are a healthier alternative. With no artificial flavourings or colourings, the Cauliflower Crisps are low in sugar and 40% lower in saturated fat than traditional potato crisps, making a healthier snacking option.
According to feast-magazine.co.uk, they are cutting food waste as the crisps are made from vegetables often thrown out because they don’t meet standard shape and size requirements.
Tracey Hogarth, founder of Nudie Snacks: “We are the first to market this product – it’s the perfect snack and doesn’t compromise on taste or quality. With the health risks associated with diabetes, obesity and coronavirus, it has never been a more important time to keep your immune system and gut health in good condition.”
A 22gm bag of Cauliflower Crisps has only 118 calories and the product is suitable for those following vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free and dairy-free diets.
