British-based raw food specialist Gourmet Raw will be launching a new addition to their range in mid January 2012.
Their new raw crisps are the perfect snack, with nothing to feel guilty about: made from sprouted buckwheat, which is full of protein and fibre, Gourmet Raw then add locally grown vegetables, herbs and seeds that are crammed full of vitamins and minerals. Each variant is slowly dried in order to retain all the naturally occurring enzymes and nutrients present in the carefully selected ingredients.
Every packet contains no preservatives, binders or chemicals...just 100% natural ingredients packed with goodness.
Available as Red pepper, Beetroot or Spicy Thai, each packet will retail for £1.99 and is:
✓ 100% natural ✓ organic ✓ dairy free ✓ wheat free
raw & living ✓ gluten free ✓ vegan ✓ non GM ✓ prepared under 40.5 ̊C

Gourmet Raw believes in making healthy tasty food that’s actually good for you.
They don’t cook their ingredients: they keep them raw so they retain all the enzymes and nutrients that occur naturally. With all the enzymes and nutrients alive and well, Gourmet Raw foods will boost your system, aid digestion and help you take on more energy.
Principles of Raw Food
A raw food diet is based on the belief that the most healthy food for the body is uncooked. Although most food is eaten raw, heating food is acceptable as long as the temperature stays below 40.5°C.
Proponents of the raw diet believe that enzymes are the life force of a food and that every food contains its own perfect mix. These enzymes help us digest foods completely, without relying on our body to produce its own cocktail of digestive enzymes.
It is also thought that the cooking process can destroy vitamins and minerals and that cooked foods not only take longer to digest, but they also allow partially digested fats, proteins and carbohydrates to clog up our gut and arteries.
