Who’d have thought it! The humble black pudding is now being hailed as a ‘superfood’ thanks to its nutritional benefits.
Black pudding is loaded full of goodness – protein, potassium, calcium and magnesium, as well as being practically carb free. It is also rich in iron and zinc – two minerals frequently missing from modern diets.
Darren Beale from MuscleFood.com said: “Some of the foods have been on the up for a while like avocado oil and maca root, but others like mushrooms and black pudding have been a total surprise to us.
