Our frequently asked questions

Where can I buy the Veggie Bar?

We’re hoping to launch in a range of retailers soon, and will notify people of that via our e-newsletter and social media (so do please follow us). You can buy from our website right now, however, and it will never be cheaper to buy from elsewhere (apart from when on special offer), especially when you subscribe.

How can I stock the Veggie Bar?

If you’re interested in stocking the Veggie Bar, please email sales@nuberfood.co.uk and we’ll get back to you asap.

What’s whole algal flour?

Whole algal flour is made from Chlorella algae, which are cultivated, washed, dried and milled.  Algae are plantlike organisms that convert sunlight and carbon dioxide into food molecules and oxygen, and are the foundation of the aquatic food chain. The Chlorella variety is similar to spirulina, and has been used as a source of food and nutrients for many years (being harvested by the Aztecs in the sixteenth century). Some people consider algae to be superfoods, but we’re not going to make any claims for them ourselves.

Cultivated in water, algae grows rapidly and is highly sustainable, such that it was once seen as a solution to hunger crises.  Until recently, however, it has been hard to cultivate at large scale, which has restricted its use significantly.

The flour is odour-less and taste-less, but is high in healthy fats and fibre, enhances texture and flavour, and provides an indulgent mouth-feel.

As it’s not made from grains, the term “flour” is simply used to describe the ingredient’s appearance.

What other products have you got planned?

There’s a lot more that we can do with the Veggie Bar, such as new flavours and a higher protein version, so are very much focused on that for the moment.

We’re keen to bring you other innovative products in the future, however, and will happily work with other people to bring great products to market, providing that they sit well with the nüber food ethos. Do please contact us at comments@nuberfood.co.uk if you have any suggestions – we’ll happily share the credit and rewards.
