LOS ANGELES – JSL Foods Inc.’s Amber Farms brand’s latest innovation is plant-based protein pasta the company says is the first of its kind on the market.
The line features a Fettuccine Bowl with Vegan Chicken & Garlic Alfredo Sauce and the only organic plant-based protein Italian style Spaghetti and Linguine. The microwaveable items began appearing on retail shelves in March and will continue to roll out throughout the year.
The Fettuccine Bowl packs 25 grams of plant-based protein per serving and is Non-GMO Verified, Vegan Certified and is made with a dairy free alfredo sauce. The bowl has been crafted with Italian fettuccine pasta with vegan chicken and is complemented with a chef created garlic flavored alfredo sauce.
The Spaghetti and Linguine dishes are pre-cooked and microwavable and offer consumers an array of health attributes such as USDA Organic Certified, Non-GMO Verified, Omega 3-Fortified and packed with 12 grams of plant-based protein per-serving. The new organic pastas support consumers desires for a healthier lifestyle by eating a clean plant-based protein that elicits a lower glycemic response compared to wheat pastas.
“We’re excited to be adding Amber Farms plant-based protein pastas to our portfolio of products; Plant-based protein meat alternatives are a direct response to what the consumers are asking for,” said Wayne Nielsen, vice president of sales and marketing at JSL Foods. “Consumer trends and needs lead our new product development. We are committed to creating products that align with today’s consumer demands.”
