New pasta shape joins line of popular veggie-based, gluten-free alternatives to traditional pastas
SANDPOINT, IDAHO (Oct. 18, 2022) – Veggiecraft Farms, one of the fastest-growing veggie-based pasta brands, today introduced Cauliflower Rotini, the latest pasta shape in its line of vegetable-based pastas that promise veggies in every bite. Packed with one-third of the recommended daily intake of vegetables per serving, Cauliflower Rotini enhances the overall eating experience as the rotini swirls act as the perfect pasta base to capture sauces, meats, and cheeses. When it comes to better-for-you pasta, consumers rank “made with veggies” as the top attribute they are looking for1. By expanding Veggiecraft Farm’s pasta shapes to include the new rotini, the brand continues to provide options that meet growing consumer demand.
Rotini continues to grow in popularity, with the pasta variety owning the largest share of the better-for-you pasta category at 31% of dollars and 33% of unit sales this year2. In response to these insights, Veggiecraft Farms has expanded upon its top-selling line of cauliflower pastas with the introduction of the new rotini shape. Like the brand’s other cauliflower pastas, the Veggiecraft Farms Cauliflower Rotini is made with only three ingredients – lentils, peas and a vegetable of cauliflower.
“Through digital demos, we found that consumers rated rotini as the top Veggiecraft Farms pasta they’d be excited to try,” said Kate Nees, brand manager at Veggiecraft Farms. “In response to this feedback, along with better-for-you pasta sales expected to continue growing in upcoming years, we introduced our Cauliflower Rotini to offer consumers a versatile, veggie-based option that can be enjoyed in traditional pasta recipes, pasta salads, and baked pasta dishes.”
