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.
What do we offer?
At the RealFoodSource we offer the best in conventional and certified organic real foods at great prices with exceptional customer service. A place where our customers with food intolerances, allergies or specific dietary requirements can find what they need. A website also offering recipes and tips on how to use these foods.
Organic certification is your guarantee that all due diligence throughout the supply chain has been performed to ensure the organic integrity of both company and product. The RealFoodSource and it's organic products are certified by the Scottish Organic Producers Authority (SOPA).
All our products are gluten and soya free, and most are suitable for customers following lower carbohydrate diets such as paleo or primal diets. In a world of growing organics fraud and unregulated food businesses we also want to be a trusted, ethical, online source of genuine organic products.
At the RealFoodSource we focus on providing relevant nutrition facts and encourage our customers to do their own independent research on the health benefits of our products. We concentrate our efforts on sourcing the best in real foods from around the world to sell at the very best prices in the UK. We will never try to increase sales with tenuous health claims, fancy packaging, or hype.
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.
Load up with toppings, we love them with our dried cranberries, nectarines and drizzled with a little of our coconut syrup but for total decadence, melt our coconut sugar chocolate and drizzle over with a handful of our chopped walnuts!
It's been a while since we've had a proper cookie recipe and with the new sunflower seed protein powders now in store it seemed a good time to get experimenting with a chocolate version! The 55% is an excellent high protein flour replacement with it's neutral taste and powder consistency. These cookies have a great crunch factor... this is down to using the coconut sugar over syrup. I always find that cookies with a 'wet' sweetener are always softer than the 'dry' sugar versions, still lovely- but something to be aware of if a crisp cookie is more your thing!
