Who are we?

We are an organic family food business based in East Lothian, Scotland. In 2011 we started the Real Food Source to offer high quality foods suitable for those who wanted to optimise their health through diet and nutrition. Our products are gluten, dairy and soy free and not what you will easily pickup at the supermarket. We also offer recipes, ideas and tips for using these products focussing on those with allergies or specific dietary requirements so that everyone can enjoy a healthy diet and find it easier to avoid processed and highly refined foods. We aspire to be a trusted, ethical, online source of genuine organic products. We only provide honest food facts and we focus on the product not the packaging so our customers always get the best quality at the best prices.

Chocolate Competition GiveAway with Including Cake

We're doing a chocolate giveaway with Jo over at IncludingCake this week.  Win 10 bars of our free from chocolate.

Pancake Tuesday!

It's Shrove Tuesday, pancakes, pancakes, pancakes!  We've tried loads of variations recently but our old favourite with almond paste is always the easiest and works a treat every time.
