Nom was born out of a fruitless search for easily accessible foods which were tasty, but didn’t contain any refined sugars and nasties. I developed allergies while at university, around the same time that my mum was diagnosed with cancer. As a family, we became fascinated with how diet and nutrition can affect overall health. I really believe in adding value to a diet. Actively eating good, nutritious stuff, rather than simply cutting out the bad!
I wanted to make free-from foods which were appealing to everyone, not just those with an allergy or intolerance. Eating healthily is easy if you’re at home and have access to ingredients and cooking facilities, but eating nutritious food on the go is a lot harder. I knew that there was a gap in the market for products which combine health, taste, and convenience – so I started making nom bars in the kitchen at home. They soon became popular with family and friends and after only a few months, they launched into Planet Organic, Whole Foods and more.
Nom products are special because of their unique combinations of super food ingredients, creating tastes and textures which can be lacking from other free-from and health foods. They’re organic, gluten-free, vegan and made with premium quality, fair trade and ethical ingredients. Both the bars and popcorn were the first to market to contain coconut oil as a key ingredient.
The nom mission is simple; to provide you with tasty, convenient products, which are packed with nutrition and free-from all of the nasties. I really hope you like them!
