This is a pretty special Tanker. We could call it many things including our Power Tanker. Our Gluten Free Tanker Topper lactation biscuit is full of our naturopath Jo’s many favoured superfood ingredients.
They include the amazing natural *Galactagogues; gluten free brewers yeast, flaxseed meal and organic rolled quinoa flakes but also Australian grown teff flour, chia seeds, buckwheat flour, organic coconut oil, organic currants and organic shredded coconut.
These biscuits take the term ‘functional food’ and ‘superfood’ to another level. We hope that they will not only help to ‘fill up Mum and her tanks’ with more than just the essential vitamins, minerals and good fats for her milk production but also extra nourishing phyto-nutrients to support her and her energy levels during this very demanding time.
Our Gluten Free Tanker Topper lactation biscuits are also vegan so those with dairy and egg intolerances can enjoy them.
*‘Galactogugue’ is a Greek word for substances that promotes lactation. Galactagogues have been used for years by mothers around the world to enhance milk supply.
WHO ARE OUR GLUTEN FREE TANKER TOPPER BISCUITS FOR?
Everyone! But, functionally they can specifically assist breastfeeding Mums to help boost their milk supply. Being gluten free they are perfect for people who have coeliac disease or are trying to reduce their gluten intake.
With ingredients likes quinoa, teff, coconut oil, chia, flaxseed and buckwheat these bikkies stand out because of their naturally rich vegan protein levels, antioxidants, good fats, fibre, iron, plus much more. We think these bikkies are one of the most satisfying, health enhancing snacks going round!
All of our Tanker Topper biscuits are most importantly delicious. We, at Franjos Kitchen love food. We know being full of goodness and standing out nutritionally is a necessity, but being yummy is just as important.
We understand that most new mothers barely have time to take a sip of their cold tea let alone cook something nutritious for themselves. We want to make life easier for mums.
Each ingredient has been carefully selected and plays an important role in not only helping mums meet their breastfed baby’s needs, but also their own health which is often ignored during this demanding time. So, even if you have stopped breastfeeding but are looking for a tasty, superfood snack then this Tanker is something you can easily grab to keep yourself satisfied and on your toes.

Teff is a gluten free grain from Ethiopia and packed with nutrition. This emerging ‘super food’ this fibre rich grain has a wonderful balance of amino acids making it a super source of vegetarian protein. It is also high in calcium and iron. Combine all of these benefits and it sure is a superfood for mums. Think… satiating, blood sugar balancing, energy producing and bowel supporting. Tick, tick, tick and tick and this is only the beginning!
Buckwheat is not related to wheat at all. It is actually a gluten free seed and is one of the best sources of high quality, easily digestible proteins. We love buckwheat because it is rich in the bioflavonoid rutin, a very important nutrient for mum’s indeed as it assists in strengthening connecting tissue. In addition, buckwheat can help to draw excess fluid from your body (fluid retention). We all know that puffy feeling in those last few months and post baby delivery don’t we?
Gluten Free Brewer’s yeast
This highly nutritive yeast is naturally rich in B complex vitamins, essential for energy production and they are one of the key supportive vitamins for the nervous system. Brewers yeast also contains the blood sugar balancing nutrient chromium, perfect to help keep you running all day long and free from sugar lows.
It is also packed with iron, a nutrient commonly deficient in new mums as well as the anti-oxidant selenium to help keep you young, got to love that! Brewer’s yeast has been recommended by midwives and folk health care providers for years and it is one of the most traditional galactogogues going around.
Organic Rolled Quinoa Flakes
This nutrient dense South American seed has had a lot of press and for good reason. Think anti-aging (antioxidants), anti-inflammatory, protein rich, gluten free, mineral (calcium, magnesium, manganese) rich, vitamin (B’s and E) rich and high in dietary fibre. Wow.
Chia Seeds & Linseed meal
Like flaxseeds, chia seeds are a wonderful source of omega 3 fats, fibre and calcium as well as phosphorus. We have included both which means you are getting one heck of a good dose of these beneficial nutrients.
Organic Coconut oil
We chose coconut oil as the perfect fat for our bikkies. It’s health benefits are what drew us to using this amazing ingredient. Did you know organic coconut oil contains medium chain fatty acids which is actually a very healthy and necessary type of saturated fat. It can aid in boosting one’s metabolism, improving the health, skin and hair and general overall organ health. Using coconut oil instead of margarine or other (not so healthy) trans fats means our bikkies are dairy free and free of nasty trans fats.
