February's box features the delicious TSAMPA cacao nibs energy bar, we caught up with founders to discover more about the incredible ingredient. 

All of your snacks contain Tsampa, can you tell us a little more about it this ingredient?

We’d love to! Tsampa is the tibetan staple food and it is made out of roasted barley, that is grinded to flour. This flour is Tsampa itself and mixed with Butter Tea it is the basis for many dishes in Tibet. It is also the travel provision of the Sherpas and Nomads to climb the mountains in the Himalaya. So we took Tsampa as an inspiration to provide the modern City Nomads with a natural source of energy!

What makes barley special?    

Barley is a fantastic grain! It contains a lot of complex carbohydrates, fibres, proteins and beta-glucans. Complex carbohydrates provide long lasting energy without creating a sugar rush, fibres satiate you efficiently, barley contains natural proteins and beta-glucans support your stomach while digesting. Altogether barley helps you to get natural long-lasting energy and satiate you efficiently without relying on artificial additives.

Tsampa has a roasty-nutty taste and it combines perfectly with the mild cacao taste of the Cacao Nibs.
