Pizza Made with Sprouted Ancient Grains
Better4U launches gluten-free frozen pizza line
Natural Foods Company Better For You Foods launched a new line of Better4U Gluten Free Sprouted Ancient Grains Pizzas. The line of frozen pizzas are made with four sprouted gluten free grains – quinoa, flax, millet and chia – that provide the multigrain crust a unique and hearty flavor. Sprouted grains have become an increasingly popular food among natural health-oriented consumers because they are higher in fiber, vitamins and minerals than traditional grains. Sprouted grains are preferred by people with diabetes, since they register a lower glycemic index.
The new Better4U Gluten Free Sprouted Ancient Grains Pizzas are available in three varieties, each with natural toppings. The current offerings are all "thin crust" and include Four Cheese, Uncured Pepperoni and Mediterranean. Like other Better4U frozen pizzas, these products are lower in fat, calories and sodium than those offered by competing brands. They are also made with Non-GMO ingredients and are Certified Gluten-Free.
"Last year Better4U Foods introduced frozen sprouted grain pizzas with 39 grams of whole grains per serving and we received rave reviews from consumers and retailers alike," explains Jack Lotker, Better For You Foods Founder and CEO. "We knew then that we had to develop a gluten free line of pizzas with sprouted grains for our loyal customers who deserve a better variety of healthy gluten free products."
Better For You Foods will sample the new line of Gluten Free Pizzas with Sprouted Ancient Grains at Natural Products Expo West, the nation's largest natural products trade show, in March of this year. The company will also be sampling other Better4U pizza products, including vegetarian and vegan options.
