Curiously Cauli was founded to fill a market gap for high-quality, vegetable-based snacks that are gluten-free, low in allergens, and contain no added sugar. This vision came to life with the successful launch of our dip and cracker range in spring 2018.

The inspiration behind Curiously Cauli is Bianca Luscombe, who has managed Type 1 Diabetes since childhood and her partner Farren Ray a former athlete. Bianca's condition drove her to explore healthier snack options. Throughout her journey, Bianca discovered the crucial role of nutrition, especially the importance of vegetables in overall health and glucose control. While pursuing a postgraduate degree in Nutrition, she was shocked to learn how few people consume enough vegetables, with many relying heavily on processed foods.

Observing the rising trend in snacking, Bianca and Farren wondered if it would be possible to incorporate vegetables as functional ingredients in convenience foods to increase vegetable intake and its health benefits.  With Bianca adopting a plant-based diet in her early 20s, she noticed significant health improvements. Drawing from her Italian heritage, a passion for cooking, and the support of her partner Farren, she began substituting vegetables for meat and grains in her recipes. Cauliflower, with its nutty, slightly sweet taste and versatile texture, quickly stood out. Over the years, cauliflower has gained popularity, featuring prominently on restaurant menus and dinner tables in various innovative forms.

Cauliflower is celebrated as one of the world's healthiest foods. Available year-round and grown globally, it is versatile across different cuisines. Rich in immune-boosting antioxidants, anti-inflammatory properties, and beneficial for gut health, cauliflower is also a great source of vitamin C and B-complex vitamins such as folates, B5, B1, B6, and B3. Unlike root vegetables and certain grains, cauliflower does not cause rapid glucose spikes, making it ideal for diabetes management due to its low carbohydrate content and slow energy release.

Beyond promoting vegetable consumption, Curiously Cauli is dedicated to minimising its environmental footprint and reducing vegetable waste in Australia. Up to 40% of cauliflower crops are discarded due to cosmetic standards imposed by supermarkets. By utilizing grade 2 cauliflowers and transforming them into high-quality food products, we significantly reduce vegetable wastage.

Our products strive to improve health and the environment.  Each product contains at least 40% cauliflower, providing essential nutrients such as fibre, vitamin C, plant phenyols, and antioxidants.

Most importantly, they taste great!
