Established nearly forty years ago Kelkin is now recognised as the leading Irish Health food brand with over 100 product lines available and they pride themselves on their great tasting, free from product range. With an in-house nutritionist they are always based on sound nutritional criteria and the products also score highly on taste appeal.
“With snacking or eating on the move or at the desk so prominent it pays to make sure that these snacks are not going to adversely effect coeliacs or those who are gluten intolerant – particularly so when it comes to young children and teenagers”, says Craig Sammells, Marketing Director at Sherriff’s Foods, the UK distributor for Kelkin.
Kelkin’s gluten free Jaffa Cakes are a particular favourite. They are light sponge cakes with a tangy orange centre covered in dark chocolate and, at less than 50 calories per cake, they not only taste good but make you feel good as well!
The gluten free Teacakes are a delicious combination of a chocolate flavoured coating over soft marshmallow on a light biscuit base and the tasty Belgian Milk Chocolate Wafers are made with crisp wafers and have a soft chocolate centre, the ideal gluten free treat with a cup of tea!
“The range of Kelkin’s gluten free and wheat free bread brings the traditional sandwich back as a healthy option”, adds Sammells. Available in white sliced, brown sliced and multi-seeded they are complemented by their Sourdough Bread and Multiseeded Sour Dough Bread – all made from traditional recipes and you can consume the product straight away without the need for “refreshing”.
“Kelkin’s in-house nutritionist provides invaluable expertise when working on NPD and plays a core role in producing up to date information for Coeliacs and people choosing to live a Free From lifestyle”, concludes Sammells.
The web site, www.kelkin.ie provides a source of valuable information for both retailers and consumers and they can also be found on Facebook & Twitter.
The Kelkin brand is distributed in the UK by Sherriffs Foods in Towcester who also distribute other free from brands Nature’s Store, Amaizin, Scott Farms Sweet Potato Chips and Darling Spuds.
