A North-east bakery has brought back black pudding butteries – after the favoured fry-up item was named a “superfood”.
JG Ross is serving up the tasty butteries to customers after black pudding achieved the lofty title.
It perhaps sounds like the most unlikely new superfood but made the list due to its nutritional benefits.
It is full of protein, potassium, calcium and magnesium and is practically carb free.
The blood sausage, which is most commonly associated with a traditional Scottish fry-up, also contains iron and zinc. Both minerals are often missing from people’s diets.
Dianne Smith, sales and marketing manager for the Inverurie-based family baker, said: “We absolutely brought it back because it has been named as a superfood.
“With it being a superfood it is another string to our bow and it is something a bit different for our customers to try – we try to keep things innovative.
The black pudding buttery is being served up on Fridays at JG Ross bakers across the North-east as its “flavour of the week”.
