Yes, that’s right, the food we all love to love, but our bodies love to hate is in fact apparently good for you.
This humble fare made from oats, pig blood, and spices is now up there sharing the limelight with the likes of blueberries, salmon, kale, acai and goji berries. Who would have thought it?
Of course this is not news to us here at MacBeth’s. We have been making out own black pudding for the last 30 years, with a secret family recipe.
Our creation has won a gold star at the Great Taste Awards and we supply Michelin star restaurants up and down the country with our mouth-watering product.
Whilst we always knew it tasted great, we are delighted it’s now being seen as a key part of a healthy balanced diet.
The benefits of the black pudding when you break down what it’s made of are actually quite obvious.
It’s full of protein, potassium, calcium, magnesium, zinc and iron and it’s practically carb free – what’s not to like?
It’s history though has not been an easy one. Not only has it been deemed unhealthy for all these years, but it was also the subject of a grizzly battle in 2009, when a cross-border dispute erupted over whether black pudding is Scottish or English.
We know which side of the fence we sit on!
And we are already seeing the affects of its new superfood status, with our black pudding sales rocketing through the roof.
To celebrate this momentous news and to make sure you stay healthy for 2016, we are offering 10 % off our black pudding until the end of January. Simply use this code: MACBLACK10 and enjoy!
