Product Review - Merry Nation

~ Posted on Wednesday, August 16, 2017 at 5:50 AM ~

As a busy mum with 4 kiddos between 9 months old to 8.5 years old, I have started cutting down on doing product reviews to focus on our childcare and family life, home cooking, helping with hubby's administration site of the business and sharing informational articles on my FB fan page so I am only accepting and prioritizing products that can fit into our family dynamics (especially books on parenting or educational stuff, family products, something along those genre)! Today's post is my review on Merry Nation range of vegetable powders.

I received the Merry Nation's Starter Kit which contains the following products for my review:

Merry Nation

  • Organic Turmeric Powder

  •  Organic Maitake Mushroom Powder

  •  Organic Fantastic Greens Powder

  •  Organic Carrot Powder

  •  Organic Kale Powder

  • Organic Bird's Eye Chilli Powder

  • Organic Ginger Powder

  • Organic Beetroot Powder

I didn't get to try out the entire range of the starter kit though so I'm sharing those that I've tried out so far in my cooking for my family.

A quick feedback on the packaging of the products -the bottles come tightly sealed with a plastic layer on the outside, once you tear off the seal you can start using the powders! The starter kit's bottles are small and nifty, good for me to bring along in case of travelling :)  

Do you know that the vegetable powders are 100% raw? Also the vegetables are dehydrated at low heat so that more nutrients and enzymes are preserved as compared to mass produced, store bought powders dried using high heat.

Now let's continue with my feedback on the powders I get to use so far - I tried the Organic Carrot Powders and Organic Fantastic Greens Powder when I made oats for our 9 months old boy. A healthy way to introduce vegetables into his solids journey right?

Other than our littlest kiddo, I also use the vegetable powders when cooking scrambled eggs, stir-frying vegetables as well as morning egg toast for our kiddos.

Now of course the adults (my hubby and I) also get to enjoy Merry Nations starter kit vegetable powders as well! I use the Organic Bird's Eye Chilli Powder for our spicy pork dishes as well as when I made spicy stingray. The dishes are particulary extra spicy this few rounds! Yums yums!

Picture below is how I marinade the stingray with Merry Nation's Organic Turmeric Powder. I can actually taste the turmeric stronger taste this round you know! More ooomphfffhhmm!!

To sum up my review, this is a wonderful range of organic vegetable powders that my family and I have been given the privilege to try out! Thank you Merry Nation!
