Sotelli Kingdom of Taste – gluten free pasta

Veggy Malta has a look at Sotelli, a gluten free pasta brand that is making great inroads on the island. Sotelli pasta is made from corn and is gluten free, vegan and also GMO free. I spoke to Ryan Camilleri who imports Sotelli in Malta a bit about the brand and what distinguishes it from others on the market.  His first reaction was, “It’s the only brand with gluten free tarja.” Now we all know how much we love our...

A drop of sweetness with Diete.Tic

Given that I am all the time saying that I need to lose weight I was happy to try out two sweeteners by the Italian brand Diete.Tic. Those who know me know that I chose the veggy lifestyle for animal and environmental reasons. The plus side to it are all the yummy and tasty plant based food one gets to discover in this journey. I guess we all have become more aware of the decreasing the consumption of sugars but I have tried to take...

Amy’s Kitchen cream of mushrooms soup

I tried out Amy’s Kitchen cream of mushrooms soup. Another of Amy’s Kitchen range of ready made canned soups. Just like Amy’s Kitchen’s other soups it is certified organic and carries the EU organic leaf symbol. The ingredients include mushrooms (obviously!), onions, arborio rice, leeks, celery and organic cream/butter. So you’ve guessed it’s a vegetarian soup (approved by the Vegetarian Society)....

Amy’s Kitchen Organic lentil vegetables soup

Veggy Malta tried out Amy’s Kitchen Organic lentil vegetables soup. It is one of a range of vegan and organic soups by this American brand. I tried it out. Whilst I am a soup lover, I usually am not too overly impressed by canned soup yet I must state that Amy’s Kitchen got it right. They actually managed to twin convenience with taste. I mention convenience as this soup just couldn’t be easier to prepare. You really...

Amy’s Kitchen breakfast scramble – easy and tasty

Just microwave for 3 minutes (follow the instructions) and your wrap is ready to eat. As with a number Amy’s Kitchen products this wrap is vegan and dairy free. Added with that the filling made with tofu, hash browns and vegetables are in a gluten free warp. So basically, this breakfast scramble ticks...

Valsoia’s new Coconut Almond and Walnut drinks

VeggyMalta tried out Valsoia’s new non-dairy drinks. We have two new non-dairy drinks to try out. The Valsoia Coconut Almond and the Valsoia Walnut. Both vegan, naturally lactose free and gluten free. These two milk alternative drinks are totally different from each other. Whilst some milk alternatives tend to taste like or similar to dairy milk, in this case I don’t believe it was Valsoia’s intention.  I had already...

Amy’s Kitchen vegetable lasagne

Veggy Malta tries out Amy’s Kitchen vegetable lasagne. Another of Amy’s Kitchen products that are suitable for vegans and people intolerant to gluten. This is another easy to prepare product by Amy’s Kitchen like the Chinese noodles. All you need to do here is heat and eat. I added some extra vegan cheese on top of it but that’s a question of choice. You can cook inside a conventional oven (as I did) or you can...

Gluten free breakfast with Seitz muesli

Breakfast is considered as the most important meal of the day, yet many skip it or rush through it. In fact breakfast kick-starts your metabolism, helping you burn calories throughout the day. It also gives you the energy you need to get things done and helps you focus at work or at school. Those are just a few reasons why it’s the most important meal of the day. [1] If you have a gluten intolerance you obviously need to look out for...

Seitz gluten free pretzel sticks

Veggy Malta tries out Seitz gluten free pretzel sticks. It’s a nice and tasty pretzel alternative for those suffering from gluten intolerance.  I took the Seitz gluten free pretzel sticks plain and I also tried them out with some dips. You really cannot distinguish them (taste wise) from other pretzels even though they are made from rice flour and maize starch. One should make a note that the product is vegetarian but not vegan...

Erba Vita probiotics and supplements

Veggy Malta tries out a couple of Erba Vita products. namely the fermentFlor Forte and MgKC sachets. These are two products from around 40 products available locally. Although they are found inside pharmacies (and a number of health shops), Erba Vita products are considered the counter products (meaning they do not require a doctors prescription to take). Having said that, I would always recommend that you should seek professional...

Indulge yourself with Valsoia’s non-dairy Hazelnut Spread

Simple question! How can you indulge yourself if you have a 400 g tub of Valsoia’s hazelnut spread? Here’s an idea. Make a chocolate cake, then spread it with the hazelnut spread.  Add a scoop of the spread to dip some fresh strawberries in. And to finish this heavenly combo add a scoop of Valsoia ice cream. Now that’s what I call desert! The great thing about all of this is that it is totally dairy free. And...

Two new ice creams by Valsioia – the Gran Specialità Caramello and the Gran Specialità Tiramisù

Veggy Malta tried Valsoia’s new ice cream tubs. The Gran Specialità Caramello and the Gran Specialità Tiramisù. It’s very difficult to tell you which is better of the two! As we are now accustomed, Valsoia has produced two other 100% non-dairy, naturally lactose free and vegan ice creams. The Gran Specialità Caramello is gluten free as well.  They both come in a convenient 210 g tub that can be enjoyed by the family (or on...
