What’s New In Food This Month

From an instant Japanese broth that will transform basic noodles into a quick and tasty midweek supper, to Fairtrade wellness teas and superfood chocolate bars, the food world is bursting with new products this month. Here’s what we’re loving…

Breakfast Balls

Oats are among the healthiest grains on earth: they’re high in vitamin B1, magnesium, iron, fibre, manganese, potassium, zinc, copper and a wealth of other vitally important vitamins and minerals. But they can be tricky to incorporate into your diet if you’re rushing out of the house in the mornings. Available in three different flavours, the Protein Ball Co.'s Breakfast Balls are made using gluten-free oats and packed full of fibre and protein - the perfect healthy snack to fuel your day.


Clearspring Organic Instant Noodle Broth

Tsuyu is a flavourful and versatile stock harnessing the goodness of shiitake mushrooms and blended with Clearspring’s own soya sauce. Additional organic mirin creates a deep and delicious savoury flavour, with just a hint of sweetness. Tsuyu means “plum rain/rainy season” in Japanese, so what better than a comforting and steaming bowl of noodles, while the rain comes down outside?


Cox & Co Chocolate

Cox & Co has a range of chocolate bars that deliver on the feelgood factor, as well as taste. The milk chocolate bar is blended with coconut oil and chia seeds, while the dark chocolate version contains both bee pollen and honey, as well as cacao sourced from sustainably run farms in Columbia, and with no artificial sugars, whatsoever. 

Available here.

English Tea Shop

Speciality organic tea company, English Tea Shop, offers a range of organic wellness teas, made with time-honoured healthy ingredients, designed with different needs in mind. Whether it’s an energy boost or a calming detox, there’s something for every taste. The range includes some of the most revitalising herbs, spices, fruits and flowers from the finest organic and Fairtrade farmers in Sri Lanka, too. 


Fairfields Farm Crisps

Artisan crisp producer Fairfields Farm has just launched exclusive charity crisps to raise money for The Brain Tumour Charity, a cause close to the hearts of Fairfields Farm co-founders, Robert and Laura Strathern. Their son, Angus, was in the same class as Lizzie Bramall who died in November 2018, just nine months after she was diagnosed with Diffuse Midline Glioma (DIPG), an inoperable brain tumour of the brainstem. With eye-catching pink packaging to tie in with The Brain Tumour Charity logo, and produced using Red Emmalie potatoes, the new Lightly Sea Salted hand-cooked crisps are available at independent food stores nationwide, with 20p from every pack sold going directly to the charity. 


Hyke Gin

Not only is this bottle a supremely stylish addition to your bar trolley, Hyke Gin has huge environmental credentials, too. Made in England and created using grape spirit produced from internationally sourced, fresh table grapes that are surplus to the supply chain, the gin is flavoured with a blend of botanicals inspired by the grapes’ African and South American origins, including coriander, myrrh and rooibos. 


Joe And Seph's Popcorn

With all the indulgent, caramel goodness of their original collection, Joe and Seph have created a vegan range, which has been nine years in the making.  Three new additions will join the cult classics, in both sharing pouch and snack pack form: Vegan Salted Caramel, the perfect combination of sweetness and salt; Vegan Toffee Apple & Cinnamon, reminiscent of the classic autumnal treat; and Vegan Coconut & Cacao, an exotic coconut crunch with a delightfully creamy, chocolate-y finish.


Pip & Nut

Nut butter experts Pip & Nut are launching a trio of nut butter cups made using their award-winning nut butter, and wrapped in ethically sourced, single-origin Colombian chocolate. Perfect for nibbling as an afternoon treat or to satisfy an after dinner sweet tooth, there are three flavours to pick from. True to the brand’s ethos, each contains natural ingredients and are made with  zero palm oil. The range is also gluten-free, with each cup in the range containing just 101 calories.


Microplane EcoGrate

Using Microplane’s signature, long-lasting, stainless steel blades, this stylish new collection is crafted in a bamboo fibre frame made from sustainable, organically grown Moso bamboo and polypropylene resin. The production process creates a much smaller carbon footprint than plastic, while the end product is also free from BPA, melamine, PVC and phthalates. Plus, the eco-friendly, bamboo fibre frame is fully biodegradable when recycled or composted. Choose from Zester, Fine, Coarse and Extra Coarse graters.


The Food Medic Podcast

Never has the phrase ‘you are what you eat’ resonated more. From optimising gut health to eating for better sleep, Dr Hazel Wallace (medical doctor, personal trainer, blogger, and author) aims to bridge the gap between traditional medical advice and the latest advances in the field of nutrition. In this podcast, leading experts share evidence-based advice on how to live a healthier life and cut through the confusing information we find online.
