What is Cassava?

Cassava has a reputation for being one of the world’s most nutritious and highly wielded super foods. It is the third most source of calories in the tropics after rice and maize. It is considered a healthy food in that it is rich in starch and contains significant amounts of calcium, dietary fibre, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, Vitamin B6 and Vitamin C. From studies it has been shown that cassava can significantly decrease cholesterol  levels, decrease low density lipoprotein (LDL) and may help lower triglyceride levels due to its high dietary fibre content.

Lactose Free Pesto should be available to all!

Posted on Oct 24, 2011

With an increasing rate of those with special dietary needs, especially children whom need to be encouraged to eat a wide range of foods, it is becoming more necessary to offer products that meet these requirements, whilst maintaining flavour and quality.

Read all about it here

Here at The Food Resource we pride ourselves on recognising these gaps in the market, sourcing merchandise and making it accessible to the public.

This is where lactose-free pesto sauce fits in! Not only is it made without cheese, and therefore suitable for those intolerant to lactose but it is also made from fresh, non-pasteurised ingredients.

The company who have created this wonderful pesto have products sold throughout the Italian supermarkets and are looking to share their recipes with the world! They have been leading production of pesto and sauces since the 70’s and with the new editions of Francesco’s Pesto with Tartufo (Truffle) or with Pistachio, they are widening the choices. They pride their pesto on its basil: Basil Genovese D.O.P, which is harvested while the leaves are still small, retaining their aroma created by the beautifully climatic region of its origin. The combination of the finest Genoese Basil D.O.P and the freshest ingredients makes this a ‘must-have’ buy for those pasta lovers.

Posted on Sep 2, 2011

The Food Resource launches a range of healthy cured meats, lower in salt and fat, at the Speciality and Fine Food Fair, London (4-6 Sep 2011) in support of UK Government’s and health officials’ recommendations that we should cut down on our salt and fat intake.

Launching a range of reduced sodium prosciutto and salami.

Mandy Collins, The Food Resource said “we all want to enjoy our favourite foods and this range of cured meats offers consumers, the much loved taste of the Mediterranean, with far less salt and fat.”

As today’s press has announced the Government are committed to reducing the amount of salt in our diet by 2012 and The Food Resource are leading the way with a new range of cured meats targeted at helping with this.

The maximum recommendation of salt intake per day for an adult is 6g and if we are to achieve this figure then companies need to source and offer foods which have been produced with salt content considered.
