Seed-based snacks offer healthy alternative

Following on from the success of its organic, vegan-friendly soups collection, Pep & Lekker is launching a new healthy snacks range.

The three-strong collection of organic, gluten-free snacks is described as “brimming with full-bodied flavours and healthy convictions”.

Each snack includes more than five seeds and a flagship “super ingredient” – Brahmi, Maca or Wheatgrass. Variants include Cumin & Nigella Seeds, Fennel & Sunflower Seeds and Rosemary & Pumpkin Seeds.

Pep & Lekker’s Seed Snacks are bound by apple, instead of oil, which ensures they have a low sugar profile. Each “eco-thoughtful” snack is also available in a fully recyclable and compostable pouch.

Co-founder Susan Gafsen said: “Pep & Lekker was born from an ongoing struggle to marry my personal passions for good nutrition and wellness with a hectic City career as a Corporate lawyer.

“The nature of my career meant I was forever supporting successful entrepreneurs on their pioneering journeys.

“My vegan son had historically struggled to find suitable snacks with even a smidgeon of appetite appeal, which gave me the impetus to forge a new career path.”

The three “eco-thoughtful” snacks are also available in a fully recyclable and compostable pouch.
