Low calorie popcorn range
From the founder of the Consett Popcorn Company comes Love Popcorn, a range of handmade, gluten-free popcorn products in five low calorie flavours: Sea Salt and Cracked Black Pepper, Fiery Salsa (made with real tomato, chilli and cumin), Cocoa Crisp, Salty Sweet and Sweet Vanilla.
The products are made from wholegrain corn, which is low in fat and high in anti-oxidants.
Love Popcorn co-founder, Catherine Furze, says, “Unlike some manufacturers who use flavourings extensively to provide a flavour kick, we only use totally natural, kitchen cupboard ingredients in our recipes. There are no weird flavourings, colourings or fillers, and we use only the finest ingredients to ensure that, while our popcorn is lower in calories, it’s very high in quality.”
The launch follows a 10% growth in the UK popcorn market in the past year. Furze believes the market will continue to grow in recognition of the need for healthy alternatives to fat laden snacks, such as crisps and chocolate.
“Consumers are increasingly concerned about the health implications of what they eat, which is why we believe there is such a strong market for Love Popcorn,” she says.
