A local British farm is producing an award winning new product that is generating a significant buzz at Vegetarian Express.
It's not just us that thinks they are something special, the Chiltern Cold Pressed Rapseed Oil won two Gold Stars in 2010 and the Oak Smoked Oil won one Gold Star at the 2011 Great Taste Awards!
Chiltern Cold Pressed is grown, pressed and bottled by the Mead family at Wilstone Great farm where they have been farming in the Chiltern Hills since 1860, just 17 miles from our Watford office.
The oil has a delicious light nutty flavour and is rich in Omega 3, 6 and 9. Chiltern Cold Pressed has no artificial flavourings or preservatives and is naturally high in vitamin E.
Made from 100% fruit, Sweet Freedom is a great alternative to sugar. Sweet Freedom has become the first ever sweetener to win coveted Gold stars at the Great Taste Awards (2009 & 2010). Known as the 'epicurean equivalent of the Booker prize' all entries are judged in blind tastings by a talented panel of chefs, food experts and buyers. Both products won a Gold, in two separate categories.
Both the Sweet Freedom Natural Sweetener and Natural Syrup have been a highlight of our range here at Vegetarian Express since March 2010. Just in case you haven't come across them before we thought we would tell you a little bit about them.
