Health Food Company Good4U has announced the launch of its Caesar Crumbles Salad Topper (in Tesco from 11 April), to add to its portfolio.
The new Salad Topper combines roasted, crumbled fava beans with a vegan caesar seasoning and Atlantic grown seaweed. The product contains gently milled beans which are formed into a crumble, providing an even distribution of flavour and texture, with a zesty and peppery finish.
The company claims to be first to the market with a functional Salad Topper containing 100% of your Vitamin D RDA, the new Caesar Crumbles Salad Toppers contain light, crispy crumbles, made from all natural, wholesome ingredients. It said the product can be simply added as an alternative to the usual Caesar dressing, to boost the flavour and texture of dull salads, wraps, soups and more.
The Toppers are also packed with fibre and high in vitamin D, vitamin D2 and Iodine. Vitamin D2 is essential for protecting our immune health, whilst iodine contributes to normal cognitive function and maintaining healthy, glowing skin.
According to the company: “The Salad Toppers are ideal for those looking to reduce their meat intake but are worried about getting their protein-fix, as just one serving of Good4U’s Caesar Crumbles provides 7g of plant-based protein - the same amount of protein as a large egg.
"In fact, the Crumbles contain 110% more fibre than standard croutons and 70% more protein. The product is also suitable for all dietary requirements, being vegan-friendly, gluten-free and containing no added sugar.”
The products are not limited to just salads and soups, the new Crumbles can also be added to pizzas, curries and burgers, for those looking to add nutritional benefit to those more indulgent dishes, it said.
