What makes your crisps different?
The most popular choice of crisp is the potato crisp. Beige, bland & boring. Dull, dreary & depressing. We’re so over that. EMILY snacks are a bold alternative in a sea of sameness. No one need live a plain potato crisp life anymore. Ditch Dull. Eat Bold. All EMILY snacks are uniquely bold. From the innovative shapes of Sweet Potato Veg Sticks or triangular Veg Thins to the fabulous flavours of Thai Chilli Veg Sticks, Barbecue or Vegan Sour Cream & Onion Veg Thins (yes, you heard right, Vegan!). Made using either a vacuum frying or ‘hot popped’ process, all our snacks use very little oil, making them a healthier, less greasy, and all-round better product.
What are Veg Thins?
EMILY Veg Thins are a unique take on the classic tortilla chip. Made with over 80% real veg, they are a combination of corn, peas, black bean and red lentils pressed into our triangular thin and packed with flavour. Who says healthy has to be dull? Not EMILY…
How are your snacks made?
We cook EMILY Veg Sticks, Veg Crisps and Fruit Crisps by vacuum frying. This is an efficient method of reducing the oil content in fried snacks, whilst maintaining product nutritional quality and reducing oil deterioration. The veg & fruit is cooked under pressure meaning we can use less oil and fry at much lower temperatures (80 degrees Celsius) compared to deep traditional methods (above 180 degrees Celsius). All this means is that the fruit and veg retains more of their natural colour, taste, crunch and goodness. Our Veg Thins are made using a processing method known as "Hot Popped" (similar to popcorn) where the ingredients are put under heat and pressure using very little oil to press into our triangle thin.
Are you snacks suitable for vegans?
Yes, all our scrumptious snacks are certified vegan by the Vegan Society.
Are your snacks gluten free?
Yes, our entire range is gluten free.
Are your products Halal?
Although some of our raw materials are certified, EMILY products are not currently certified Kosher or Halal. It is something we would consider if enough consumers ask for it.
Are your ingredients non-GMO?
Yes, our entire range is non-GMO.
Are your ingredients Organic?
No, EMILY snacks are not organic. However, we are continuously working to source the highest quality ingredients that are organic so watch this space.
Do your products use palm oil?
The palm oil used for EMILY Fruit Crisps is Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil, meaning our suppliers have been independently certified to meet sustainable guidelines. We choose this neutral tasting oil to allow for the great tasting sweet Apple flavours to come through. As a sustainably led company we are always looking for the most sustainable options for our products and business practices. That’s why we’re a B Corporation.
Do your product count as ‘1 of your 5 a day’?
Our focus is to make the highest quality and most natural crisps we can by using real fruit and vegetables minimally processed. Although there are many variations of advice from different bodies, the NHS advice found here details that 30g of dried fruit and 80g of vegetables can be considered a portion towards 1 of your 5 a day. They recommend that you aim for a total of 400g (5 portions) of a variety of fruit and vegetables each day. All products in the EMILY range will help in achieving this as each product contains > 60% of REAL fruit or vegetables, the rest is made up of seasoning and a tiny percent of oil during the processing of the product.
