New Vegan & Gluten Free Products Just Keep Rolling In


London Olympia was host to the Natural & Organics show last weekend.  I went along to see what new products were being launched. Also, to just take in the atmosphere.  When you get a gathering of people who are passionate about what they do, and care about their consumers AND the planet, the atmosphere is quite electric.

Held over three days Natural & Organic have zoned areas Beauty & Spa, Health, Living and Food.  Primarily, my interest was in the FOOD but I did stroll though the other zones to see if anything caught my eye.

I thought I'd share some photo's with you.  I was heartened to see many of the Continental European, and American products I love to enjoy when I am travelling are beginning to make their way over here, together with great 'home grown' foods emerging. 

There was a feast of exciting new chocolate, more coconut products than you can shake a stick at and a substantial amount of gluten free foods.  All making it easier and tastier to be vegan and gluten free.  The days of feeling like you are missing out are numbered (not that I do, research and persistance pays off in many ways).

Ohso now have a sugar free version 63 calls



Apricot Kernel Butter from Sun & Seed. Extremely good for you and delicious.


A salad/cooking oil made from milk thistle.  Milk thistle is a great detoxifyer and liver strengthener and cleanser.  Erbology also had delicious no sugar sea buckthorn jam




My Award For Best New Vegan Chocolate  - Goes to Pana Chocolate  With quite a few flavour combinations, the chocolatier from Australia certain knows flavour!  Soon to be in the UK.  





Best Museli I've tasted.  Made with raw vegetables.  It has the perfect balance of sweet and crunch.  Filling too!  from Primrose Kitchen


Seitan made from spelt that SOME people with gluten sensitivities are able to tolerate.    If you know you can then you'd enjoy these products. I cannot so I did not try them.


Gusto Kola. Sugar and artificial sweetener free.  It is loaded with botanicals and actually tastes like cola.  I was surprised!  


Raw Ecstasy


Delicious cookies.  Soon to be sugar free.  Punku Quinoa cookies.



A (shy) Michelan Starred chef Chris Horridge is making his own range of sugar free, healthy vegan sorbets. The coconut wasabi ripple was INCREDIBLE!  Yi





Delicious vegan cheese made from almonds.  Soy free!  Vegecheese






Food For Life are coming over from the US with their vegan and gluten free breads.


Look out for these new products.  MANY of which will be in the large UK supermarkets.  The big stores have caught on.  Which of course is great but I am also wary of larger companies getting on the band wagon and touting foods as  health foods but when you look at the label they are stuffed full of processed sugar, crappy fats and fillers.  All the above are both delicious and healthy.  The best combo!
