Seggiano is the name of a small hilltop village in Monte Amiata in southern Tuscany, where they farmed organic olives and sold olive oil and artisan foods since 1985 from small family food producers. All their ingredients is ethically sourced and produced.They handpick their ingredients from all over Italy, everything is handmade and their ingredients are gmo-free and preservatives free. Not all of their products are vegan but they sell a range of vegan products including chocolate spreads, pestos, digestive biscuits, pastas, crackers, and more. Also gluten-free and organic products. I can definitely taste the quality of their ingredients and I love that they also use clean ingredients and a high quality oil such as extra virgin olive oil. But having such high quality ingredients means it isn't the cheapest! You can find these in various places around London including Planet Organic and on the Seggiano website. Their stockists are listed on their site.
Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Spread
Hallelujah! I have finally found a vegan Nutella! This literally tastes like Nutella! But healthier.. They also have a 'crunchy chocolate hazelnut spread', so that one is less dark than this one. Still, I have tasted dark hazelnut spreads before and they tasted too dark, this one tastes a little dark but still keeping the sweetness. If you have been missing Nutella or just love hazelnut chocolate then get your hands on these spreads!
Raw Basil Pesto
I had this with pasta and even on steamed potatoes (which were in a salad) and it tasted super delicious! It's salty but not too salty and you can definitely taste the quality ingredients, which makes all the difference. Towards the end of my meal though it's like it got a bit much and started burning my throat a little bit or something, it got a bit strong, I don't know, does pesto normally do that?
Fig Balsamic Glaze
This product is very interesting and unique, with only 3 natural ingredients. I had this on salad and it tasted great! It's sweet, vinegary and you can actually taste the figs. The flavours are pretty balanced and it's not overpowering nor too vinegary, the flavour blended in a bit with my salad.
