beef stewJTM Food Group, Harrison, Ohio, says its new Premium Beef Stew bridges the gap in nutritional comfort food. Made with tender chunks of premium beef, potatoes, carrots and onions in a rich, beef sauce, Premium Beef Stew is a reduced-fat, reduced-sodium product. It comes in a boilable/steamable bag to reduce prep time. “Based on a specific healthcare customer’s request, we were asked to make a product that could compare with a home-made beef stew that had tender, melt-in-your-mouth beef,” says Tracy Boggs, RD, JTM’s director of National Healthcare Sales. “We have not only met that challenge, but surpassed it by creating a product good enough to be served in any restaurant.” Premium Beef Stew is part of JTM’s Better Steps line, which features more than 100 gluten-free products along with a variety of reduced-fat and -sodium items. Each 6oz serving of Premium Beef Stew contains 116 calories, 2.3g of fat and 496g of sodium.
