These can be added to cakes, icing and creamy desserts to help enhance other flavours in the recipe. We have a growing range of extracts & essences including Orange Blossom Essence, Rose Water, Vanilla Extract and many other superior quality extracts from Nielsen Massey.
We supply cocoa in the form of cocoa powder and "cacao nibs", which are basically bits of cocoa bean. Cocoa is the main ingredient of chocolate.
Uses: Try the powder in brownies, muffins and milky drink recipes. Cacao nibs would lend themselves well to home made cereal bars, or adding a crunch to cakes. You can grind down the nibs and add to cooking (sweet & savoury).
Vanilla is like nothing else, having a unique flavour all of its own. We list both the vanilla pod, and extract.
It is the flavouring used in custard, as well as ice-cream and many desserts and confectionery.
This includes favourites such as maple syrup and more uncommon syrups such as rice syrup & agave nectar. All these syrups maybe used instead of sugar or to enhance the flavour of a cake or bread recipe.
A common culinary culprit with a sweet and distinct flavour...
Coconuts are considered both a fruit and a nut, and are a staple food in many parts of the world. We supply coconut in flaked, desiccated and powdered form.
Uses: Coconuts can be used in cakes, biscuits and cold-pressed fruit bars. You can also sprinkle coconut as a topping, into cereal or into curries. Coconut powder is a healthier alternative to using fatty cream of coconut in curries.
Healthy Supplies offer a range of almonds that have been prepared for you unblanched, flaked and powdered.
Uses: Almonds are used often in cake, biscuit, tart & scone recipes. Ground almond can be mixed with other flours whilst baking to develop a marzipan-like taste. Perhaps try flaked almonds with savoury dishes like honey roast chicken or stir fry.
Chestnuts are highly nutritious, and are a particularly low-calorie nut. Surprisingly, they are quite high in Vitamin C. They have a sweet flavour and compliment various cake and sweet recipes very well. Chestnut puree is comonly used in gluten free baking.
Dried fruit powders. Completely natural and containing no artificial ingredients. Fruit powders can be used in both sweet and savoury cooking. Most of our powders can be used to make milkshakes, jelly, lollies, fruity yoghurt, sauces and desserts.
Nutmeg is a dried nut. It can be used to flavour baking and cooking. Ground or grated, it has a unique flavour.
Uses: Nutmeg can be used in custard-based or cheese-based recipes, seasoning biscuits, crumbles & pies, and in drinks such as eggnog and mulled wine. Many associate it with Christmas flavours, whilst others use it as savoury addition to jerk pastes and marinades.
