Meadow Fresh Greek Centres yoghurt
The Greek Centres range is the latest innovation from Meadow Fresh; Greek style yoghurt with generous fruity centres you can mix through.
The 175g single-serve pottles are low in fat, a natural source of protein and calcium, and contain no artificial colours or preservatives.
We road tested all the flavours at NZ Real Health and loved the Pina Colada. You can really taste the fruit and the Greek-style yoghurt is thick and feels a little luxurious… Delish on its own as a dessert, a middle of the day treat or as part of a decadent breakfast.
Available in four exotic flavours – Tropical Pina Colada, Coconut, Blueberry and Passionfruit & Vanilla – for RRP $2.99 each. Find them at all supermarkets as well as selected convenience stores nationwide.
Venerdi Organic Sourdough ‘Brown, no added yeast’ bread
A rich sourdough toast bread, Venerdi Organic Sourdough is a great choice for people who have allergies or intolerances to gluten, wheat, dairy or soy – ingredients which are often found in the vast majority of breads on supermarket shelves.
We road tested it with poached eggs for breakfast and found it to be a delicious option for toasting in the morning. The bread is leavened by the sourdough process; brown rice flour is fermented with the sourdough overnight before making up a significant portion of the final dough which is then mixed, tinned and left to rise prior to baking.
Available at selected supermarkets and specialty food stores nationwide for RRP $7.99 (600g).
Pic’s Really Good Peanut Butter Slugs
Our favourite Kiwi-made peanut butter is now available in a box of six ‘slugs’ – small 30g packs that are great for taking with you on the go.
Each slug contains two serves of delicious smooth peanut butter with no added sugar and no added oils. We road tested these and loved the little red clip that comes attached to the box which lets you save part of your slug for later.
Get your Pic’s Really Good Peanut Butter Slugs for RRP $5.99 from New World supermarkets, outdoor and lifestyle stores, or Pic’s’ online shop for RRP $7.50 (includes postage and packaging).
Revolutionary heart health supplement from Otago Uni
A smart team of Kiwis from Otago University in Dunedin have recently released a highly-targeted variation of their original MitoQ supplement.
MitoQ Heart is designed to specifically support cardiovascular health by combining the science of the original MitoQ capsules with essential nutrients for healthy heart function. This new supplement can help protect against the effects of age and free radicals, supporting normal blood pressure, resting heart rate, circulatory function and the production of cellular energy.
