Kalettes® – hard work & dedication
The award winning Kalettes® is the product of 15 years of hard work and dedication (using traditional breeding techniques!) from the British vegetable seed house Tozer Seeds.
The inspiration behind the idea came from a desire to create a Brussels sprout with a more subtle flavour which was versatile and looked great. The result – a brand new vegetable which looks a little like a tiny cabbage with green frilly leaves and streaks of purple.
Great looks aside these sprouts pack a punch when it comes to health.
Just 100g of Kalettes® contain double the amount of vitamin B6 the vitamin that helps us use and store energy from the food we eat and twice the amount of vitamin C than standard Brussels sprouts.
“A generous double dose of vitamin E will fight toxins and provide a powerful antioxidant meaning they are good for the immune system”.
Because of its great flavour Kalettes® has proven to be a hit with both adults and children, it is also really easy to cook. After a quick rinse Kalettes® can be steamed, microwaved, stir fried, boiled or blanched.
