Chickapea has released a pulse-based, organic chickpea and lentil mac and cheese aimed at vegetarian consumers in Canada.
Chickapea Mac and Cheese is available in three flavours: Mac with classic cheddar, mini spirals with classic cheddar, shells with white cheddar.
The pulse-based mac and cheese products combine the chickpea and lentil ingredients from the brand’s pasta range with organic cheese sauces.
Each product contains 19g of protein, 8g of fibre and less than 500mg of sodium per serving.
Shelby Taylor, founder and CEO of Chickapea said: “We’re so excited to bring our Chickapea Mac and Cheese to market.
“It’s packed full of nutrients and tastes like the cheesy traditional comfort food we all love and grew up on.
“Our mission at Chickapea is to make healthy eating simple, convenient and delicious by reinventing comfort foods with only nutritious, organic ingredients. We believe you can have your mac and cheese and eat it too.
“Across the nation, 66% of consumers are buying organic products on a weekly basis — and that proportion is rising. The survey tracked a 10% gain — from 56 to 66% — between 2016 and 2017.”
