Six Makes Sense
‘Six’ is the magic number
Six hero ingredients form the basis for our recipes. While some use a few more, and others slightly less, you can be assured that all are subject to minimal processing to ensure maximum goodness. And not only do we limit their number, but our packaging lists them in plain English – so you know exactly what you are eating.
• Rice Flour is an outstanding alternative to whole wheat flour as it is gluten-free and perfect for gluten intolerance and auto-immune conditions like Coeliac disease.
The insoluble fibres present in Rice Flour keep our digestive tract in shape and are a rich source of calcium. Rice Flour also aids cardiovascular health, maintains the blood sugar level, keeps bowel movements regular and boosts the immune system.
• Tapioca Flour is free of all major allergens, including grains, gluten, dairy, fish, eggs, soy, and nuts, making it a fantastic choice for those looking for an allergen-free flour alternative.
Tapioca is also vegan and sugar-free and a safe option for those who suffer from diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, allergies and digestive issues. It can be used in recipes to reduce the use of butter, oil, cream or dairy.
• Cornflour is rich in antioxidants and fibre. It helps to reduce fat and inflammation whilst improving digestion and sustaining a rich gut microbiota.
