Gluten and Dairy-Free, Low GI Teff Pasta, Flours, Flakes and Mixes
In 2014, Ethiopian born Yonas Alemu walked into a health food shop and saw Teff on the shelf. Initially excited to find someone selling a staple of his African home, he was disappointed to find it came from the US and not from its origin, Ethiopia. It was a trigger that saw him leave his successful career in finance and venture into the world as a socially responsible entrepreneur.
All Lovegrass Teff is proudly sourced from small-scale Ethiopian farmers, who to this day harvest with ox and plough, a tradition unchanged for thousands of years.
The smallest of all grains, Teff is a naturally gluten free, packed with prebiotic fibre, iron, magnesium, manganese and calcium, and is the only grain known to contain significant amounts of Vitamin C.
What sets Teff apart from other grains, is its outstanding natural combination of nutrients that promote endurance, performance, and good health. Not only does Teff help people suffering from the Coeliac disease, IBS or heart problems but it can aid weight loss, improve circulation, support bone health and boost the immune system.
Their multi award winning range of Teff based products includes grains, flours, Pancake & Waffle Mix, world's first 100% Teff Fusilli and Crispy Teff Flakes.
All their products can be bought online at www.thelovegrass.com

Organic, Vegan and Dairy, Soya, Gluten and Refined Sugar-Free Chocolates
Enjoy! Chocolate was founded by husband and wife team Chris and Steph Crutchley in 2014. Chris started making his own chocolate as a hobby because various food intolerances meant he hadn’t been able to eat chocolate for many years. After much trial and error, he developed a recipe for making fabulous tasting dark chocolate from a handful of natural, pure ingredients that could be enjoyed by (almost!) everyone.
All Enjoy!’s products are organic, vegan and free from dairy, soya, gluten and refined sugar. Instead of refined sugar, their products are all made with coconut sugar, which has a lower Glycemic Index. Enjoy! also use raw cacao powder in their chocolate, which has more antioxidants than conventional roasted cocoa powder. Enjoy! is certified Organic by the Soil Association and registered with the Vegan Society.
Enjoy!’s dark chocolate range includes: solid bars in 35g and 70g sizes in various flavours (all 70% cacao solids), solid chocolate buttons (70% cacao solids), hot chocolate powder and chocolate fudge in four delicious flavours.
