Feel Free donuts

Seed & Sage Banana & Flaxseed Power Slice

'Picks up brilliantly on the trend for eating naturally freefrom food that is both healthy and 'fast'. Great ingredients and tastes fab! Good dark appearance, deep banana flavour – lovely and moist, not oversweet – really excellent. Nobody would ever guess this is gluten free and dairy free.'


Highly Commended

Borough 22 Cinnamon Sugared Doughnuts

‘You would never even know they were allergen free – a great example of simple ingredients used to make a simple product where quality shines through. Cinnamon and sugar levels quite high but a very clever product - definitely best eaten warm.'

Origin Earth Gluten Free Crackers with Caraway

‘Super thin crispy, crunchy and gluten free. Really good ingredients – brilliant product – just plain tasty crackers!'


Doisy and Dam Coconut & Lucuma Dark Chocolate 40g bar

'Clear coconut taste, a sophisticated flavour. Rich – lovely crunch. Good flavour.'

Rana’s Artisan Bread Nearly Rye – GF Artisan Bread Mix

‘Love the clean, natural ingredients and the artisan nature of the bread. The carraway/fennel is great but could be a bit strong for some. Looks and tastes very homemade – very clever.'

Seed & Sage Flaxseed, Chia, & Sunflower Seed Crackers

'Lovely – small, savoury, deeply earthy. Really tasty, seedy crackers with a hint of sea salt. Lovely snap to the cracker – and so thin.'
