People in India and China have been eating lotus seeds as a superfood for centuries and now, Guruji is introducing lotus seed snacks to the UK in the form of a sustainable, 100% natural snack. The puffs are sustainably harvested from the root of the lotus flower and no extra water is needed to produce the flavorful snacks—Guruji calls popped lotus seeds a "criminally underused ingredient."

The nutritious lotus seeds have the potential to be paired with both sweet and savory flavors and Guruji does just this by creating varieties like Smoky Thai with lime, Lightly Salted, Cheesy Vegan, flavored by nutritional yeast, and Salt & Cacao. The minimally processed, allergy-friendly superfood snacks are free from artificial ingredients, gluten, dairy, MSG and nuts, and serve as a source of plant-based protein.
