Garden Lites-owned vegetable brand Veggies Made Great has expanded its range of superfood veggie cakes with three new flavours, as it responds to increased demand for plant-based foods.
The three flavours include quinoa, butternut squash and harvest root, which will join the brand’s existing line-up of its original superfood veggie cakes and broccoli cheddar veggie cakes.
According to the brand, the veggie-packed cakes are free from gluten, soy and nuts and low in calories which makes them suitable for breakfast, as a snack or side dish.
The Quinoa Veggie Cakes are a blend of kale, quinoa and carrots at only 90 calories, while the Butternut Squash Veggie Cakes contain a blend of butternut squash, carrots and a hint of brown sugar.
At 100 calories, the Harvest Root Veggie Cakes are a mix of beets, carrots and sweet potatoes, marking the brand’s first product to feature beets, a vegetable packed with nutrients, vitamins and lots of fibre.
New-Jersey based brand Veggies Made Great launched its first superfood veggie cakes in Costco stores in 2015 and has since expanded to retailers nationwide. Its range of foods include muffins, veggie cakes and frittatas.
According to Veggies Made Great, currently only one in ten Americans eat the daily recommended amount of vegetables. With its products, the brand is aiming to address the key barriers that people have to eating more veggies, including knowing how to cook vegetables, minimising waste with perishable products, and making them taste amazing.
The company also said that the most significant way to improve health in this country is to increase consumption of veggies.
The three new veggie cake flavours will be available in Costco stores in packs of 12 as of January 2020.
