What our experts say...
What a unique, smooth, melt in your mouth jar of goodness. The combination of activated pili nuts, tremella mushroom and monk fruit creates a creamy spread that has a sweet pine nut taste. You could quite easily eat this decadent spread straight out of the jar and with the health benefits associated with these ingredients, such as the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, why not! Shoku Iku are a conscientious brand who carefully consider every aspect of how the business operates. I think it is admirable that they seek out suppliers who respect and care for the land and that they are always looking for ways to improve.
I love adding this smoothe, subtly sweet, nutty spread to crackers and buttery toast and even into smoothies. I really love that the pili nuts have been wild harvested and hand cracked and I was interested to learn about the health benefits of the tremella mushroom. The addition of monk fruit makes this spread sweet and a little like a dessert. Shoku Iku makes incredible efforts to source ethically and sustainably and give back to society.
I love this so much. The flavour is so unique and unlike anything I’ve ever tasted before. I like to use it in both sweet and savoury ways. I really love that they work with a variety of different charities depending on where the need is. I think that’s really important and can be more helpful than focusing solely on one.
