So Many Trends, So Many Applications
No matter what the better-for-you food trend, beans have it covered.
These days, consumers want healthier choices. Foods that are packed with nutrition, sustainably sourced, good for the environment and minimally processed. They’re concerned about dietary needs and are always on the lookout for gluten-free, allergen-free foods high in protein and fiber. And, they want it to taste good.
Check, check, check, check and check.
Truth is, beans, in addition to their indisputable nutritional benefits, are highly versatile and functional, and are available in a variety of forms and flavors that can be added to just about any food application. For instance, beans and VegeFull™ cooked ground bean ingredients have already been added to tortillas, brownies, cookies, snacks, cereals, pizza, soups, pasta, crackers, chips, sauces, dips and more—allowing manufacturers to load them up with nutrition, while keeping taste and texture intact.
Edible beans are even making their way into pet food as the demand for pet foods that are gluten- and grain-free, as well as high in protein, vegetable and fiber content, continues to rise.
