Organic & Freefrom Food

What is good for your health

Organic & Freefrom food:

…that means pesticide free, additive free, yeast free, preservative free, free of gluten, dairy, added sugar, vegetable oil, unfermented soy, sulphites, excess nitrites, emulsifiers and bulking agents.  Well that takes out most of the modern day supermarket!  We are left with delicious food options, clearer thinking about our consumption, no temptation from food with empty calories.  Consuming healthy food is a real effort today and that is what McCallum’s aims to help with.

 

our

approach


Our ‘freefrom’ shop only stocks healthy food

Alex has carefully read the back of every packet to ensure that all of our ingredients and products are free of those ingredients (e.g. added gluten, sugar/sugar substitutes) and chemicals (e.g. sulphites, excess nitrites, emulsifiers) which are too prevalent in our diet today or which should not be in healthy food at all.

No hidden processes used in producing our ‘free from’ Organic foods

Our healthy food has not undergone shelf-life lengthening processes such as irradiation (like nuts and seeds) which actually change the nature of the product reducing their nutritional benefit (omega 3 profile is altered by irradiation).  Our meat is Organically reared, allowed to roam freely and mature at its natural rate, is grass fed and has no antibiotics administered.  Whilst it costs more, you get more after cooking.  Take chicken thighs – they actually are large because the birds have been free to roam, building thigh muscle, and two will do not four for a casserole because they are not full of water to make them look larger than they actually are.  Our sourdough, from Zanni’s bakery in Great Missenden, is a two day process – no yeast accelerator is added.

Bulk purchase to enable us to offer Organic healthy food at online prices

Increasing numbers of items can be bought free-flowing – I buy in bulk and you select the quantity you would like.  This enables us to compete with online prices whilst giving you personal service.

Our ‘freefrom’ approach in summary

Our selection of healthy food reflects the aggregation of much of the holistic alternative medical literature and grows with learning from the wider community who use the shop.

Charcuterie – the UK’s only Gluten & Preservative Free Charchuterie

Peelham’s delicious slow, dry-cured ham and bacon are made from their free-range organic rare-breed and rare-breed cross (Tamworth) pigs.  They dry-cure by-hand, using a traditional cure including sea-salt and the lowest possible Sodium nitrite content (80 ppm as opposed to 250ppm used by mass producers of ham for supermarkets) and approved by the Soil Association.

Peelham do not:

  • inject their hams or immerse them in brine.
  • use cure-accelerators, colorants or colour-fixers.
  • Sodium nitrite is an important constituent in a curing salt as it prevents the occurrence of Botulism.  After curing is completed laboratory tests that they have had conducted demonstrate that the Sodium nitrite residue is 7ppm or less (comparable to a stick of celery or a whole beetroot!).
