Silver for MUTTER NATUR Bohnellis
Second place in the REGAL HIT Snack Survey
You are no doubt familiar with millet balls and lentil crisps from the snack manufacturer Regal, but have you heard of organic Bohnellis from MUTTER NATUR?
The mini bean balls are a natural product development with extra benefits in the snack sector. The Bohnellis are made with black beans or scarlet runner beans that are grown entirely by organic contract farmers in Austria and processed in Styria.
They are every bit as good as other snacks and yet each pack contains less than one gram of fat. The nutrition expert and dietician Angelika Pinter is enthusiastic about them:
“The Bohnellis are a really fantastic invention. They naturally contain almost no fat, but they are high in protein and nutritious fibre. They are healthier than other snacks and also more practical. No crumbs, no mess, no sticky fingers – ideal for anyone who is often out and about in the car, for example.”

stamp press process
While modernity has brought progress in many areas, the traditional Styrian stamp press process is still the best way of making pumpkin seed oil. The main difference between this and other pressing methods is that we work with open roasting pans. At our plant, people check when the pumpkin seeds are perfectly roasted and so will yield the very best oil. This enables our experienced oil millers to produce the pumpkin seed oil that has won more prizes than any other – and which as a result of this type of pressing retains all the natural constituents. The untreated oil is not filtered; the particles that make it cloudy settle naturally when the oil is left to rest.Read more
