Snack Spotlight: Scrubbys Vegetable Crisps with Character

 

 

MADE FOR THE CRISP CONNOISSEUR

Beetroot, carrot, sweet potato & parsnip sliced with their skins on, gently cooked in our secret way using high oleic sunflower oil, lightly seasoned with sea salt. The tastiest, healthiest vegetable crisp you can buy, vegetable crisps with character and 30% less fat!

 

Cooked at circa 125 degrees rather than conventional frying which is circa 180 degrees, giving the following benefits;

• At least 30% less FAT, and at least 18% less calories per 100g
• At least 7g more crisps per 100g due to the lower amount of FAT
• The colour and shape is retained
• Creates a product which has none of the burnt and oily overtones of current vegetable crisps
• Size of each crisp is considerably larger – this makes the crisps an ideal ‘dipping’ tool

 

Other features of Scrubbys;

• Cooked in High Oleic Sunflower Oil
• Available in 40g or 100g bags

 

 

About the company:

Scrubbys was founded by husband and wife partnership John & Claire who began retailing organic, fine and traditional foods in 2007 with the intention of using this as market research to establish a range of best selling quality products.

Vegetable crisps were introduced to our range and proved incredibly popular.  We had one big concern though – these crisps were fried using traditional methods, which means they have very high fat levels. It was this discovery that started us on our journey to produce a healthier lower fat vegetable crisp. Like a lot of parents we are very conscious about what our children eat and we start their lives with the most nutritious and beneficial foods, such as organic milk, organic jars of baby food, organic snacks etc. However once the child reaches the toddler stage the variety and choice of such products starts to dwindle, it is at this time the choice becomes raw products e.g. fruit & veg or unhealthy snack foods.

Snack Spotlight: EPIC Meat & Nut Mix

 

 

The EPIC Meat & Nut Mix was created to conveniently feed our inner HUNTER & GATHERER while staying true to the fundamental principles of clean food. Each mixture begins with a solid foundation of 100% grass fed & organic beef. Similar to the animals consumed by our ancient ancestors, EPIC cattle are raised in their natural environments, freely roaming and grazing.

 

Our nut medley is inspired by the foraging diets of our ancestors and each ingredient is full of rich cultural history. We thoughtfully crafted each EPIC Nut Mixture by balancing the smoky and savory properties of jerky with richly roasted and slightly salted nuts. The end result is a modern whole food snack for the EPIC omnivore.

About the company:

EPIC foods begin with a living animal. We set the industry standards by sourcing our meats from ranchers that we deem EPIC. We mandate proof of certifications, which validate that our animals receive the utmost humane treatment.

This is the way nature intended animals to be and we see ourselves as leaders in recognizing the value of sustainable and responsible animal welfare practices. Read More
