Join the blend trend and win with mushrooms



Forget the latest Jimmy Choo’s and Versace, we have something that is trendier, and friendlier for your wallet, ok, so maybe hold on to those Jimmy Choo’s you just might be able to afford them after all.


Blendability will be taking South Africa by storm and we are giving you the chance to be a trendsetter as the South African Mushroom Farmers’ Association (SAMFA)’s challenges you to #JoinTheBlendTrend.


For those who don’t know yet, blendability is a yummy way to make your meals healthier. Blending the deliciousness of umami flavours with ground/minced beef, lamb, chicken, turkey or even fish in dishes such as hamburgers, meatballs and lasagne.


You see, mushrooms are not only scrumptious and nutritious, but the meaty texture and umami flavour also makes it the perfect protein partner to any meal, whether breakfast, lunch or dinner. If it is low calorie, low sodium and low cholesterol options loaded with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals you are looking for, blendability is the answer! Replacing 50% of your meat protein with mushrooms make for healthier dishes with a lower fat content and fewer calories.


Join the trend and experience the Umami flavour all the top chefs and food lovers are raving about!
