Here’s something you may never have considered: meat-free jerky. MightyBee produces coconut-based products and has released a range of raw, organic, vegan jerky made purely from young Thai coconuts. Intended to appeal to both sweet and savoury palates, the jerky comes in three distinct flavours: Chocolate & Hazelnut, Teriyaki, and Spicy BBQ. The coconut jerky, free from gluten, refined sugar, dairy and preservatives is a delicious alternative to everyday snacking.
“Brought up in a family with a history of diabetes and lots of weird allergies, I spent a lot of my childhood getting lost in the streets and munching on homemade treats from food trucks,” says Ice Min, the CEO and Co-Founder of MightyBee. “Growing up, my siblings and I had few options in supermarkets. That’s why we’re so proud to have produced our range of guilt-free snacks that are healthy, free from gluten, dairy and refined sugar, and which are utterly delicious!”
Each of MightyBee’s coconuts come from Ratchaburi, Thailand, the home of the extraordinary Nam Hom coconut, grown and handpicked by local farmers. Available in two sizes 15g (£1.80) and 30g (£2.85) www.mightybee.com
