Introducing the newly FODMAP Friendly certified Black Market Spice Merchants Range

Posted on December 02, 2021

FODMAP Friendly are so excited to announce the certification of Black Market Spice Merchants!!!!

The inspiration behind the Black Market Spice Merchants brand

The inspiration behind the Black Market Spice Merchants brand is that regardless of whether it is a quick weeknight dinner, a summer BBQ or a low and slow cook up, they wanted to make it easier for anyone and everyone, regardless of their cooking skills or dietary requirements. Black Market Spice Merchants think that everyone deserves food that tastes as good as their spice rubs make it!

How did Black Market Spice Merchants Begin?

This whole concept originated by Simon (a chef) and his wife to-be, Paige (definitely not a chef), dieting for their wedding. After weeks of eating the same bland food, they realised the simplest way to add variety was with spice rubs. Being a chef of fifteen years with many recipes for seasonings they began experimenting. After a while they found that even Paige who wasn’t much of a chef could very easily create an amazing dinner using the spice rubs.

The kitchen Simon manages specialises in all thing’s gluten-free, low FODMAP and kosher, and one of the common problems they would see at work was how hard it was for people following a low FODMAP diet to not only find suitable products, but also have a variety. The Black Market’s spice rubs that they had been making at home for the longest time were all seemingly suitable for low FODMAP.

So, with these two different parts of their lives combined, they realised they might have stumbled onto a solution. The spice rubs and seasonings which had so easily helped them every night of the week could bring ease and flavour to everyone. And with that begun Black Market Spice Merchants.
