Each 40g pouch contains less than 20 calories per serving with no added sugar, it is a convenient and delicious way to boost Vitamin D intake and can fit anywhere from gym bags to handbags to child’s lunch boxes. The product is particularly popular with busy parents, mums and dads have found it to be a really great way to keep their children’s vitamin intake topped up.

Vitamin D is unlike any other vitamin in that it acts like a hormone because every cell in the human body has a receptor for it. It is produced naturally when the skin is exposed to sunlight through sunshine however in the UK the lack of regular and direct sunshine means that its population is not able to get vitamin D from sunshine alone. According to Public Health England as much as 90% of the multi-ethnic population are suffering from a Vitamin D deficiency, which is why the NHS recommends that every man, woman and child supplement their vitamin D consumption.


“At Red Orchard we feel the problems that arise from deficiencies are completely avoidable if we find new ways to improve the experience of healthy nutrition. Nutrition shouldn’t be a chore it should be a treat - and preferably strawberry flavored!” - Abdul Hakeem Hashi, Director of Red Orchard . Red Orchard is available in a delicious strawberry flavor and is 100% Organic, approved by The Soil Association, approved by The Vegetarian Society and produced in the UK. Red Orchard has already been selected as a finalist for Best New Organic food product 2019 at the Natural & Organic Products Awards Europe and was a finalist in the Just Imagine If campaign for supporting the UN sustainable development goals.
