Family owned business Linwoods in Armagh, has launched a brand-new range of natural plant protein blends, Hemp Protein+.

The innovative new product provides a natural source of protein, helping fuel the body with essential energy-boosting nutrients and heart-healthy compounds.

To celebrate the launch of the new product, Linwoods has collaborated with nutritionists Tony O’Neill and Jenny Curran from healthy eatery ‘Tony & Jen’s’ on the Lisburn Road, Belfast. Together, they have created a range of protein popsicles, made using Hemp Protein+ and a range of other tasty health foods.

Jenny Curran, nutritionist and Co-Founder of Tony & Jen’s, explained: “We love experimenting with new ingredients and flavours and we’re passionate about proving that healthy eating doesn’t have to be bland and boring and I think these ice lollies show the fun side of it. We say they’re like protein shakes, but way more fun!

“They are packed full of goodness and flavour, and the amount of protein in each one contributes towards the average person’s Recommended Daily Intake, helping to balance your diet or maintain and build muscle mass.”

Launching in outlets across the UK and Ireland, the 360g packs are available to order online from the Linwoods website and a number of independent health food stores including Eatwell & Framer Health on the Lisburn Rd priced from £16.99. Tony & Jen’s Protein Popsicles are on sale now until the end of August.
