As part of my healthier eating plan and in a bid to consume more vitamins and minerals from natural sources, I have introduced seeds into my diet.
Aldi Natural Seed Mix Review
The first thing to note about Aldi’s Natural Seed Mix is the price – 65p for a 100g bag! I have previously tried seeds from other supermarkets, but they have been larger bags and rather pricey.
The mix contains sunflower seeds, pumpkin seed, dried sweetened cranberries, pine nuts and goji berries.
When I opened the bag the first thing I noticed was how many more sunflower and pumpkin seeds there were compared to the other ingredients. I spooned out 15g of mix to take with my cereal and as can be seen in the photo above.
The dried cranberries are sweetened with sugar which isn’t great if you are trying to cut down on your sugar intake. Although, the nutritional value per 30g serving shows that it contains approximately 4% of the guideline daily amount of sugar. I’ve included a nutrition table at the end of this post and I’m assuming the term ‘guideline daily amount’ is the same as RDA but I’m not sure?
The bag doesn’t have a resealable tab included, so the instructions on the packet recommend storing the mix in an airtight container.
Overall the texture and taste of the mix seemed perfectly fine. I’m going to try adding the mix to leafy salads next and for 65p a bag, I’m sold on this one! This mix is part of Aldi’s “the FOODIE market” with other seeds and nuts available in the range, so I’ll post up on any other products that I try.
