Nestle's Life Cuisine is introducing new dishes across a variety of formats with innovative ingredients and lifestyle options like cauliflower bites, gluten-free pasta, single-serve cauliflower crust pizza, piadas and more.
One of the latest brands from Nestlé, Life Cuisine delivers delicious food made with nutrients and ingredients that help you thrive. Recipes are inspired by four popular ways of eating: high protein, meatless, gluten free and low carb lifestyle. With a variety of offerings for any time of day, Life Cuisine provides thoughtfully created recipes designed for different lifestyles.
"People are looking for variety in foods that fit their different lifestyles while delivering on taste and value," says Megan Smargiasso, Brand Manager, Life Cuisine. "For Life Cuisine, we are using a fast innovation model to launch new products quickly with fast prototyping and consumer testing, so we can meet those needs with relevant, on-trend meals."
Available nationwide now at your local grocery store, these new offerings include an array of on-trend, flavorful and nutrition-forward ingredients, from spiralized zucchini to riced cauliflower, pasta made with chickpeas, cauliflower gnocchi and more. Life Cuisine meals are a nutritious option for anyone looking for a simplified way to explore new flavors and recipes that align with their lifestyle.
As part of this new product launch, Life Cuisine has teamed up with BANZA Pasta to create two new, exciting recipes to give consumers more gluten free options in the freezer aisle. Banza Pasta is one of the fastest growing dry pasta brands in the grocery store, which makes it ideal for Life Cuisine. The two new Life Cuisine dishes made with Banza pasta are fully prepared entrées that offer a gluten free twist on traditional pasta dishes.
