Great Taste judges go nuts for G-NUTS low-salt peanuts
“The slow roasting certainly brings out the flavour and creamy texture. Well done on the balance of salt.”
August 21, 2018, LONDON, UK. Press Dispensary. G-NUTS are thrilled to be among the prestigious Great Taste Stars of 2018. Judges this year awarded G-NUTS’ hand-cooked, low salt peanuts the much sought-after Great Taste Award in recognition that this is a food delivering fantastic flavour. The expert judges commented favourably on the appearance, shape, texture and taste of G-NUTS signature low-salt peanuts: “a golden harvest colour with a pleasing crunch. The nuts hold integrity both in shape and on the palate. The slow roasting certainly brings out the flavour and creamy texture. Well done on the balance of salt.”
“The accolade is a real boost,” says Funmi Brady, founder and owner of G-NUTS, “We are incredibly proud of our Great Taste Award; it is testament to the quality and all-round deliciousness of our peanuts.”
Judged by more than 500 of the most discerning palates, belonging to food critics, chefs, cooks, restaurateurs, producers, food writers and journalists, the Great Taste Awards are widely acknowledged as the most respected food accreditation scheme for artisan and speciality food producers. As well as a badge of honour, the unmistakable black and gold Great Taste label is a signpost to a wonderful tasting product, discovered through hours and hours of blind-tasting by the judges.
For Funmi Brady, the 1-star Great Taste Award confirms her confidence that her hand-cooked low-salt peanuts are quite simply the best tasting peanuts on the market. She said: “We entered the Great Taste Awards to get an endorsement for our G-NUTS peanuts from the finest palates in the food industry, so we’re very happy with the Great Taste star.”
With the consumer interest in healthy food being one of the dominant trends in the food market at the moment, G-NUTS peanuts are a great example of a natural low-salt, high protein, high fibre snack for the health-conscious. Whereas other salted peanuts are high in salt and cooked in oil, G-NUTS peanuts are made from carefully selected peanuts which are hand-cooked in batches without any oil and seasoned with organic sea salt, allowing the natural flavour and creamy texture of the peanuts to shine through.
Filled with flavour, they can be enjoyed on their own as a snack, as a more-ish nibble with drinks, used as an ingredient in cooking or baking, or added to salads or a breakfast bowl of yoghurt and berries for a protein boost.
Funmi Brady concluded: “The Great Taste Award means a lot to the whole G-NUTS team, as the company was created with an ethical vision of improving the lives of disadvantaged women in Nigeria, by creating much-needed employment opportunities. We are the first UK brand to win a great taste award for West African sourced peanuts.”
Come and meet Funmi Brady, G-NUTS’ charismatic founder, and her team at the Specialty and Fine Food Fair, 2 - 4 September 2018, on stand 3161.

Notes for editors
What makes G-NUTS peanuts unique?
These irresistible peanuts are the perfect accompaniments to drinks enjoyed at social occasions, as the delicious, natural flavour of the peanuts – noticeably less salty and oily than other offerings on the market - doesn’t overpower the taste of cocktails, fine wines or craft beers.
They are popular with parents, as they give children an alternative to sugary snacks, offering the much-loved flavour of peanut butter but without the added sugar or oil.
The care taken over the product extends to the distinctive glass bottle packaging. These are shaped to make the peanuts easy to share, without dipping. The bottles are reusable, so promoting zero waste.
