Enjoy Award Winning Food from the Ludlow Nut Company
Welcome to the Ludlow Nut Company. We are not a food factory mass producing our products in huge volumes, we are a small artisan producer of healthy, award winning food, using only the finest, natural ingredients. We do not use any artificial preservatives or colourings. Take a look at our range and join our loyal band of repeat customers.
Packed with protein, fibre and essential fats, nuts are one of THE best buys. A golf ball-sized portion (about 30g) of unsalted nuts makes a vitality-boosting snack and, unlike most other options, contributes a mix of valuable vitamins and minerals. All nuts have different nutrition credentials and will offer various health benefits - find your perfect match by referring to out Wheel of Nutrition
Dried fruits are very popular for many reasons. Eating dried fruit is associated with improved health and provides many of the essential minerals, vitamins, phytonutrients and fibre that you need every day. Dried fruit doesn't spoil quickly and is an easy snack to pack, especially for outdoor activities like hiking. It is certainly a much healthier and more nutritious snack than crisps or other processed junk foods.
Our healthy award winning breakfast cereal range of porridge, muesli & granola mixes are all packed with cereal, grains, nuts, seed and fruit to make a heart healthy, free from meal, full of fibre, vitamins & minerals with no added sugar or salt. They are hand-made by us in Ludlow in the beautiful Shropshire Hills in small batches.
A seed contains high levels of essential fatty acids, the full profile of amino acids needed to form complete and digestible protein, plus vitamins A, B, C and E and the minerals calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc, iron, selenium and manganese. They are a low GI food and therefore a good source of slow release energy, which helps to keep blood sugar levels stable and you feeling fuller for longer.
We lightly roast our nuts & seeds to improve their flavour then pass them through our cool milling process to produce our range of deliciously tasting nut & seed butters. This is all done by us in our kitchen here in Ludlow in the beautiful Shropshire Hills. We do not add any other ingredients – no preservatives, sweeteners or oils, we leave you to do that, if you so wish.
Some current diet books say you should abandon wheat or gluten to lose weight, but we should all be eating cereal daily, and at least half of those should be whole grains. Unless you have celiac disease, gluten intolerance, or another reason to cut back, you don't want to miss out on the health benefits of whole grains. You’re getting fibre, a healthy plant-based protein, vitamins, minerals, and a variety of phytochemicals that will improve your health. Whole grains can cut the risk of stroke, heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
Almost all of our products are suitable for vegetarians, but some of our confectionery items contain an animal based ingredient in the shellac coating. See under the product description for more information.
All natural nuts, dried fruits & seeds are gluten free and in addition we make great tasting gluten free options in our granola, muesli & porridge mixes
Our nut butters, including peanut butter and almond butter are gluten free and free from any artificial preservatives & colourings and have no added sugar & no added salt.
