  • The sales of these lines have been slowly dropping off so we have taken the decision to de-list them and do not plan to replace these in the near future.

  • Unfortunately Hazelnut prices have continued to rise and a lot of manufacturers are removing Hazelnuts from recipes due to shortage in supply caused by adverse weather conditions. This isn’t an option with our Hazelnut Butter so we have had no choice but to increase the cost of this product.

  • Unsaturated fats and omega-3 fats are considered to be better for our health as they can help to lower blood cholesterol.

    Unsaturated fats are found generally in plant foods such as seeds/grains, nuts, vegetables and fruit. They can be either polyunsaturated, found in sunflower, soya, corn, and sesame oils or monounsaturated like olive and rapeseed oils.

    Evidence suggests that the inclusion of the monounsaturated fats are particularly good as they help to promote the healthier type of cholesterol in our blood.

    Almonds, hazelnuts and peanuts are rich sources of monounsaturated fats and if eaten unsalted, just a small daily handful would contribute towards a healthy diet. 

  • Fats are an important part of our diet; they provide the body with energy and help the body absorbing important vitamins and minerals. They also contain essential fats which the body is unable to make for itself. However, eating too much fat can be unhealthy.
