1 New Hemisphere Global have two new oils to add to their range: Garlic Flavoured and Chilli Flavoured Hemp Seed Oils. The claimed health benefits are too numerous to list here, so let’s just say that they’re packed with stuff that’s good for you and they taste great. RRP $16.99. newhemisphere.co.nz

2 There is a huge list of what Kavita’s Kitchen curry pastes don’t have – no added sugar, no dairy, no additives, no nuts… What they do have is bags of taste, so just choose your favourite sauce, then add protein or veges, cream, coconut cream or yoghurt. The flavours are Butter Chicken, Madras Fusion, Rogan Josh and Thai Zing. $8.99 for six serves. kavitaskitchen.co.nz

3 Made by Wellington-based Upcycled Grain Project, Grain Crisps are crafted from ‘rescued’ grain from the beer-brewing process and are sugar- free and packed full of protein, fibre and flavour. There are four cracker flavours: Fig & Cardamom, Cranberry & Coconut, Raisin & Rosemary and Orange & Sesame. RRP $5.49. rutherfordandmeyer.co.nz

4 Preservation is the mission of Samantha Burgess – reducing food waste by turning seasonal local produce into delicious preserves. We love the Triple Citrus Marmalade and the Perfect Pickled Radishes. $12.50 online for 250ml. preservationjam.co.nz

7 From the ‘two partners in brine’ at Last Jar comes this BBQ’ed Pickled Pineapple with Chilli & Lime. Though it sounds a little unusual, we might even be prepared to break every rule we’ve ever made and pop this on a burger or even (whisper it) pizza. $14 for 400g. lastjar.co.nz

8 Coming from the team behind Marmalade Deli in Eastbourne, Wellington, Tumjal Relish has all the good stuff: fresh eggplants, garlic and ginger, and a hit of tamarind that makes it spicy-sweet with hint of hot. Dollop it on a burger or a hot dog, liven up a wrap, serve with a curry – you’ll be licking out the jar in no time. $13.95 for a 425g jar. tumjal.nz
