The Good Carb Food Company

In 2003, founders Dr Mick Shaw and his wife Lizi created The GoodCarb Food Company. Equipped with all the ingredients for healthy living, these true foodies also have a sound background in organic farming and science. Combining their lifelong love of food with their experience in farming, food, and science, the pair began their mission promote the sense of wellbeing induced by eating good food, without creating the artificial blood sugar fluctuations produced by so many convenience foods.

Reading as much as they could about the role of carbohydrates in food, they soon deduced from the latest scientific research papers that the Glycemic Load (GL), which is a direct measure of how food affects blood sugar, was the most important thing to measure in their new granola products. Lizi’s therefore became the first company in the world to measure the GL load of their products. Together with their insistence on using natural ingredients, Lizi’s customers can be confident in the health credentials of their granola.

All our products supply wholesome food that deliver sustained energy and protein throughout the day.

All our products are GL tested to give you confidence not only on the nutritional benefits but also the effect on your body.

With continual development we have launched Granola in convenience packs to help with busy lifestyles but always with a conscience that has driven us to develop varieties such as our low sugar.
