Tip of Stefano:

Brazil nuts are healthy, tasty and make creamy soups

Brazil nuts are possibly one of the most undervalued of the nut family. They are not only very delicious, they are also crammed with selenium, an important antioxidant that protects your body against free radicals. They grow in the rich soil of the Amazon that, together with the great deal of sunlight they receive, makes them very healthy. They are also rich in phosphorous, which is important for bone and tooth growth and upkeep. Add them to soup for a very creamy taste. The Brazilian nut has a gentle flavour which is only hinted at in this recipe.

What fans say about Bertyn


Bertyn seitan-lover

“We heard all about it from our Belgian staff: Bertyn’s seitan is delicious, they told us. And it is true: it’s extraordinarily tasty, authentic seitan – and it’s also completely organic.”

“A large number of Bertyn’s products are not made from wheat, but from spelt – and not just any spelt, but Oberkülmer Rotkorn original spelt. The seitan made from wheat is also made from an original variety – Manitoba original wheat. This means it’s an authentic seitan, traditionally made from original grains with a traditional fermented soya sauce. We already love it!”

“Bertyn seitan has an excellent texture and is not rubbery at all – which is sometimes what you get from other seitan-makers.”
