Spice Time gets healthy meal approval

28 October 2010

Ethnic food firm Spice Time says it's had the seal of healthy approval on its puff pastry range after having their products nutritional level analysed

Spice Time arranged to have their puff pastry products examined for their levels of fat, nutrition and calories, the overall findings have resulted in the range being healthy and nutritious.

Spice Time is a family run company that has been manufacturing a range of authentic handmade meat and vegetarian snacks and meals for over eleven years in its hometown of Birmingham.

It supplies to the cost sector catering industry and when they received feedback from schools that healthier alternatives to fried products were needed Spice Time responded by creating the puff pastry range.

The puff pastry Katlamas range between 62-109 calories and the vegetable Katlama’s contain iron, zinc and calcium. After creating the puff pastry range there was an overwhelming positive response from schools and cost sector catering companies.

Faisal Director added: “There aren't many ethnic food manufacturers that produce chilled and frozen food that is healthy with no additives or colourings. The puff pastry range is most popular range and as it's a product that is oven baked it is healthy as well as being tasty! Overall we want to focus on the quality and authenticity of all the food that we manufacture.”

Spice Time was first started when Faisal went away to university, as there was no Halal food available he had to take from home frozen snacks and meals prepared by his mother. The food made by Faisal’s mum became so popular that even the university canteen asked for samples to taste! This cult following became the initial start for what is now Spice Time!

The frozen range include dishes such as charcoal lamb kebabs, lamb balti, chicken and vegetable samosas. The chilled range includes lamb pakoras, onion bhaji, chicken biryani, vegetable balti and much more.
