What is a galactogogue?
Galactagogue is a Greek word referring to a substance that promotes lactation. Oats, brewer’s yeast, almonds and flaxseeds have a reputation for promoting a healthy supply of breastmilk which is why we use them in our Tanker Topper range.
What do your Tanker Topper biscuits taste like?
We could be a tad biased but we reckon they are absolutely delicious! The taste can best be described as a cross between a delicious oat biscuit and a muesli slice. The choc chip flavour is quite decadent while the fig and almond has a subtle sweetness with an extra crunch from the almonds. You may notice a very mild salty aftertaste as a result of the brewer’s yeast. Your best option is to order a few flavours and decide which one you like best.
Can I eat your Tanker Topper range while pregnant?
Yes and many do! Our Tanker Toppers are full of wholesome ingredients making them a great snack for anyone, including pregnant mums. Just beware – many husbands have reported Tanker Topper addiction.
Why don’t you use eggs, wheat and dairy in your products?
As a naturopath and nutritionist, Jo is a firm believer in limiting dairy, eggs and wheat in the diet. We also want our biscuits to be enjoyed by as many people as possible. Excluding these ingredients means our products are suitable for vegans as well as many people with food allergies and sensitivities.
If I eat chocolate while breastfeeding, will it make my baby grumpy?
Some babies are sensitive to cow’s milk. If you consume dairy, the cow’s milk protein might pass through your milk and cause your baby to become unsettled. At Franjo’s our chocolate is dairy free so it doesn’t contain any cow’s milk.
How long do your products last?
That depends on how many you eat! All our sealed containers have a shelf life of 12months from the production date. Once opened, we recommend consuming the contents within two weeks as we don’t use any preservatives in our products.
What do you mean by refined-sugar free?
Instead of cane, white or regular brown sugar, we use organic coconut sugar and organic maple syrup. These are more nutrient-dense. Our crackers contain no added sugar at all.
