When should I eat Toppers?
Toppers are a range of sweet 'sprinkly toppings' made from whole ground dates infused with super foods, coconut, seeds and spices. Short answer.... eat them whenever you want a healthy sweet kick! Perfect for an energy boost or to jazz up a breakfast, desert, smoothie or snack. In fact, we can't think of a time when we wouldn't want to eat them!
Who are the products suitable for?
Toppers have been specially designed to be suitable for everyone including kids as a healthy alternative to refined sugar laden treats. All ingredients used are vegan, soy free and gluten free- so also suitable to those with a range of allergies and intolerances. The Toppers are geared towards those who love a bit of creativity with their snacks... pretty sprinkles work every time!
I haven't heard of some of the ingredients, where can I find out more?
We have provided more details of why we have selected each of the ingredients in our products HERE.
How are the products manufactured?
All products are handmade in small batches and incur minimal processing which does not involve heat- therefore nutritional output is maximised. It is primarily a case of blending together a selection of whole dried fruits, coconut, seeds, cocoa powder, superfoods and spices. Simple is the best!
Are the products organic?
We initially set out to be 100% organic, but found that we could not secure a consistent supply for all of our ingredients, the costs of some organic ingredients also had a significant impact on pricing. We still seek to use organic ingredients as far as possible and many of the ingredients are indeed organic. Those that aren’t maintain the healthy whole food status but do not have organic certification.
Are your products allergy friendly?
Whilst we do not use gluten, dairy, soy, or egg products during production, we cannot guarantee that there are no traces since the products are manufactured and packaged in the same environment as some of these products. All products use coconut and are typically suitable for kids lunch boxes and environments where regular nuts are banned.
What are the natural flavourings used?
We use many superfood powders such as turmeric, beetroot, wheatgrass, cinnamon, mixed spice and ginger. In other cases we use natural flavourings extracted from plants- you can read more information HERE.
Why do you feel it is important that products be refined sugar free?
The products are created entirely from whole foods. Dates are the only wholefood sweetener and also help to create the declines crumbly yet chewy texture…a true versatile superfood! Many other health snack and fitness products use glucose syrup and refined sugars which are like the rocket-fuels of sugar, they hit your bloodstream very quickly, which leads to a crash. Wholefood sweeteners are not refined and help temper this high with their increased fibre and nutrient content.
How long can I store the products?
We give the product a six months Best Before Date from date of production, but they can also be frozen so store for longer then this. We advise that upon receipt, products are refrigerated (for maintaining optimal nutritional value) or kept in a cool dark place.
Can all the products be frozen?
Yes all Toppers flavours can be frozen. They remaining fairly crumbly so can be served straight from the freezer!
How can I order you products?
