NGF: our seeds

October 8, 2018 6:21 am Published by Leave your thoughts

We’ve got an amazing range of seeds at Naturally Good Food, both organic and non-organic. They’re the perfect wholefood: cheap, versatile and packed with nutrition, punching way above their weight. If you’re trying to eat well on a budget, think seriously about seeds. Many of them have just as impressive credentials as the more expensive nuts.

Seeds are easy to incorporate into your everyday diet, whether sprinkled onto morning cereal, included in a smoothie or added to baking. A handful of seeds is a great quick snack if you’re feeling both virtuous and peckish. You can even eat them as a special treat: roasted, salted and spiced!

At NGF, we’re also well-known for our range of sprouting seeds, mostly from Aconbury. For fresh shoots and micro-greens, you can’t beat sprouted seeds, harvested at the very peak of their powers.

Here’s a full list of all the seeds we currently stock. We have these in a variety of pack sizes, from small snack packs up to enormous bulk bags.

All our seeds

Chia seeds

Chia seeds are stuffed with antioxidants and minerals and full of fibre. They’re a complete source of protein, which is great news for vegans and vegetarians. These tiny seeds are popular thickeners in smoothies and desserts.

Sunflower seeds

Great for snacks and also for baking, our organic sunflower seeds are wonderfully crunchy.

Pumpkinseed

These are our largest seeds and have a great, satisfying bite. Our standard organic pumpkin seeds usually come from China – and fly off our shelves. We also stock organic Styrian pumpkin seeds from Austria.

Linseed

Also called ‘flaxseed’, we have this in golden and brown varieties (the brown tends to have a more pronounced flavour). Linseed of both colours contains both soluble and insoluble fibre and is rich in protein and Omega 3 fatty acids.

Sesame seeds

In black and the more usual white, sesame seeds aren’t just for the top of burger buns! They’re a great source of manganese, copper and calcium, among other minerals, as well as dietary fibre. They’re also rich in the Omega 6 fatty acids and high in protein. They contain unique fibres that can help to lower cholesterol and prevent high blood pressure.

Hemp seeds

Hemp seeds are packed with the fatty acids that are essential for growth and development. Interestingly, they’re a very environmentally friendly crop: they can be grown with the use of very few pesticides.

Poppy seeds

Blue poppy seeds, with their distinctive savoury taste, are full of zinc, iron and dietary fibre.

Mixed seeds

When you just can’t decide….we’ve got an Omega 4-seed mix – perfect as part of your breakfast cereal.

Ground seeds

You can see our full range of ground seeds here.
