“With many gourmet fruit butters and preserves on shelves, the first thing that you taste is sugar. I wanted to highlight the fruit and the spices and herbs instead.” says, HerbNZest founder, Deboleena (Deb) Dutta. “The challenge for us is to incorporate the flavors with less sugar, salt and little or no oil. Everything from choice of ingredients, to source of ingredients to final process plays an important role in the taste and nutrition of the product.”
HerbNZest® is a new line of natural, vegan, specialty condiments using premium gluten-free ingredients. HerbNZest® was started in 2011 out of a personal need when corporate woman and new mom Deboleena Dutta was hard-pressed to find healthy condiments to create easy meals for her food loving family. Isles were filled with sugary, salty, or high calorie preserves and tapenades. This prompted Deb to quit her corporate career and launch HerbNZest (http://herbnzest.com/)
