Not too long ago, I’ve been lucky enough to be given an opportunity to meet the people behind this amazing company- Nushie’s Natural. A company that produces all-natural products from ice-cream to granolas. Wait. It gets better. All their products are raw. Yup, you heard me right! Every thing’s plant-based & perfect for our vegan, coeliac and lactose intolerant friends.
The family owned company began with an inspiring story which began with Nush’s mother, Carolyn. When battling breast cancer, her interest in whole, natural & unprocessed food began. With this, Nush’s interest in healthy and wholesome developed. It wasn’t long before it became her passion and travelled to New York to work under a leading raw food chef. Fast forward a few years and here I am, talking to Nush about it.
I was intrigued by their non-dairy ice cream. I’ve had my fair share of soy-based ice cream but nothing comes close to the real deal. But Nushie’s Natural ice creams are not soy-based. ‘What?! How is it non-dairy?’ Simple. Coconut milk and cashew nuts!
Well, not as simple as you’d think! Nush spent two years perfecting the ratio between all the ingredients before introducing their first 3 flavours: Vanilla, Chocolate & Strawberry. Then came along Green Tea and Tiramisu.
Honestly, if no one told me that it wasn’t dairy-based, I wouldn’t know. I wouldn’t even consider it! I’d call you crazy! The ice cream was creamy and rich – everything a good ice cream should be. Another plus point? It’s sweetened with agave syrup! So, no refined sugar nonsense in this sweet treat!
And one flavour I couldn’t get enought of? Tiramisu. A splash of coffee and a dash of sherry, it was as good as a tiramisu ice cream could get!
You always need a crunch to go with something creamy right?
Hence, the Nushie’s Flaxseed cracker, Chia crackers and Buckwheat granolas!
(A little tip: Sprinkle some granola on the ice cream and you’re good to go!)
Everyday, Nush and her wonderful crew dehydrate these crackers at 45°C and pack ‘em up when they’re ready. These crackers are packed with nutrients & enzymes so, ideal for a little snack or when I’m feeling a little peckish
Currently, their products are only available in Victoria, NSW and Queensland but expansion is definitely on their mind! For more information, do check out their site: http://nushiesnatural.com.au/
Oh! And now their ice creams are available in a cute 90ml Dixie cup! Perfect for a single serving…
Special thanks to Francis and Nush for letting me visit the place where the magic happens
Highlights From the Irresistible Gluten Free Show: From Natalie Nott at Taste Kitchen: Nushies Natural is OK in a Low FODMAP Diet.Wednesday, October 12th, 2011
The Gluten Free show was recently held in Melbourne and Nushie’s Natural products were successfully showcased.
Here is a recent blog from a well known Melbourne foodie and author Natalie Nott as appeared in Taste.com.au.
Natalie is author of The low FODMAP cookbook and www.lowfodmap.com blog.
She writes: “I am excited to be joining the Fructose Friendly Low FODMAP Recipes club. Here I hope to share with you a bit of inspiration for some delicious fructose friendly/low fodmap eating.
If you would like to see what I have been up to lately or find out more about The low FODMAP cookbook head over to www.lowfodmap.com”
She adds: “So, did I find any new and interesting low FODMAP products, you might ask. Well, there were a few gems. Here are my Irresistible Gluten Free Show highlights:
Chef Nush Galbally (that’s her dad in the picture) has created a range of gourmet wholefoods, including dairy free ice cream. The ice cream is made from cashews and coconut milk which current research suggests should be okay in a low FODMAP diet. I tried the tiramisu flavour and my little people had strawberry and vanilla; we are all pretty happy.
*Dr Sue Shepherd developed the low FODMAP diet in 2001. She has proven, through her pioneering PhD research, that limiting dietary FODMAPs is an effective treatment for people with symptoms of IBS. The low FODMAP diet has been published in international medical journals and is now accepted and recommended as one of the most effective dietary therapies for IBS. Abstracts of these articles are available in our GP/Specialist Section.
FODMAPs are found in the foods we eat. FODMAPs is an acronym (abbreviation) referring to Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides and Polyols*. These are complex names for a collection of molecules found in food, that can be poorly absorbed by some people. When the molecules are poorly absorbed in the small intestine of the digestive tract, these molecules then continue along their journey along the digestive tract, arriving at the large intestine, where they act as a food source to the bacteria that live there normally. The bacteria then digest/ferment these FODMAPs and can cause symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome include abdominal bloating and distension, excess wind (flatulence), abdominal pain, nausea, changes in bowel habits (diarrhoea, constipation, or a combination of both), and other gastro-intestinal symptoms.
