Black Pudding – The New 'Superfood' That Nobody Saw Coming

You can stop feeling guilty about that fry-up – because now, apparently, black pudding is counted as a superfood.

According to the Daily Mail, the often-derided blood sausage was included because it's "loaded with protein, potassium, calcium and magnesium, as well as being practically carb free."

Thus, it joins the ranks of kale, goji berries and a load of other ingredients you can only buy in Fallon & Byrne or Donnybrook fair in the ranks of the super.

Darren Beale from told the newspaper: '2015 saw healthy eating reach a new level and this year we predict this trend is only going to get bigger."


"It's been interesting to note how people are changing their habits depending on the new buzz words in clean eating.

"Some of the foods have been on the up for a while like avocado oil and maca root, but others like mushrooms and black pudding have been a total surprise to us.

"It's great to have this new research available to find out the hidden qualities in food and we can't wait to see how these new trends take off."


That's made at least one of our New Year's resolutions a hell of a lot easier.
