Bucking pasta trends, the company dials in on these surprising ingredients for a refresh in the category
LOS ANGELES – I love carbs. Especially noodly carbs–spaghetti, pho, chow mein, pad thai, ramen...something about slurping up noodles feels oh-so satisfying. But I don’t work out enough to justify eating so much carbs (I still do it though), so when I heard that Veggiecraft Farms is making gluten-free cauliflower penne and spaghetti pasta, you can bet I got excited for it.
"Veggiecraft Farms is finally bringing great tasting pasta back into the lives of ingredient- and gluten-conscious consumers," noted Oliver Bogner, Founder and CEO. "With nearly 25 percent of Americans opting for gluten-free or plant-based diets, we wanted to address a big gap in the market for a gluten-free pasta that tastes like traditional pasta.”
Months of crafting and perfecting went into creating the same mouthfeel and texture we all know and love of traditional pasta, according to a press release. Master-crafted in Italy to keep to its culinary roots, the cauli penne–which is vegan, kosher, certified gluten-free, and non-GMO verified–is made with only three ethically-sourced ingredients (lentil flour, cauliflower flour, and pea flour) making it easy to consume a full serving of vegetables.
“Parents can also rejoice,” continues Bogner, “we are offering an easy, no-fuss way of getting kids to eat vegetables."
While I may not be able to stand at the table in Italy and eat them as they’re made, Veggiecraft Farms pastas is currently available for purchase on the Veggiecraft website, priced at $18.00 for four boxes. The pastas will be available in stores starting this fall.
