Did you know Black Pudding is a superfood?
It's better for you than you think
For many years, I have always dismissed the black pudding as being a horrible addition to any full English breakfast, until recently.
The other week, I thought I would try it with my breakfast and was pleasantly surprised at how good it tasted. I then decided to do a bit of digging and find out what exactly is in it.
So, as far as I can gather, it is made from fried animals blood (usually from a pig). Yes, this might sound disgusting but it isn't too different from a sausage when cooked. I then discovered that black pudding is actually classed as a superfood.
What makes it a superfood?
When someone mentions the word superfood, I often think of kale or other healthy green things, not some black fried blood. However, it turns out that black pudding has very high nutritional values thanks to its rich iron and protein content.
It was declared a superfood in 2016 and continues to exist as one.
