World’s first ‘super’ kebab
The traditional late-night fast food fix – the salty, greasy kebab – is getting a “superfood” makeover.
But whether customers will be “wrapped” in the results when the new kebab is unleashed on Monday remains to be seen.
Australia’s largest kebab chain, Ali Baba, has enlisted the help of a dietitian to slim down the fat and salt content of the Middle Eastern classic and increase its antioxidant and fibre content.
The result is a 97 per cent fat-free, wholemeal Lebanese bread snack containing falafel made from super seed quinoa and chickpeas, and a chutney that includes acai berries, goji berries and blueberries. The chain is claiming it as the world’s first “superfood” kebab.
Dietitian Joanne Turner, who consulted on the transformation, said the kebab – which contains nearly 1800kj, or a fifth of the average daily calorie intake – is not a weight loss product, just a nutrient-packed, wholesome alternative to sandwiches and burgers.
The Superfood K’bab contains half the salt of Ali Baba’s traditional kebabs and also has a third of the fat of the company’s Original K’bab.
