Nut and seed brand Chef’s Secret is widening the use of its products with a blend designed to be sprinkled over salads.
Salad Topper is a mix of cashew pieces, pine nuts, pumpkin and sunflower seeds and walnut pieces, with no other added ingredients, that have been toasted to intensify their flavour and to maximise their crunchiness, said the company.
It is suggested that the mix can be sprinkled on to salads as an alternative to more traditional croutons, as well as used in dips, soups and even on top of ice cream.
The new entrant will join Chef’s Secret’s three other toasted nut products - cashews, pine nuts and pecans. All are available in 100g bags.
The product is sold by food broker Humdinger in the UK and is being launched into Sainsbury. It is also expected to gain listings in Tesco early next year. A 100g bag has an rsp of £1.29.
