Functional Breakfast Burritos
Sweet Earth Natural Foods, Moss Landing, Calif., unveiled new Functional Breakfast Burritos and meatless Savory Grounds plant-based meats.
“When you look in the breakfast aisles, too much of what is available is reliant on sugar for flavor and lacking in key nutrients like protein and beneficial fiber,” says Kelly Swette, chief executive officer. “The breakfast segment is getting a long overdue facelift and a shift to savory from sweet. I wanted to create products to start someone’s day right with their specific needs in mind. Sweet Earth has crafted a line of wholly Functional Breakfast Burritos to meet the health needs of today’s modern families, including the first probiotic breakfast burrito for those interested in improved gut health and digestion.”
Made from select superfood ingredients and high in protein and fiber, Functional Breakfast Burritos come in the following varieties:
Get Cultured! What is said to be world’s first probiotic breakfast burrito, it’s made with heat-resistant probiotic strain Bacilius Coagulans GBI-30 6086, developed by Ganeden Biotech, Mayfield Heights, Ohio, and contributes to better digestion and gut health. This burrito also features a Korean-inspired blend of seasoned tofu, fermented red pepper, cabbage, edamame and fresh ginger.
Protein Lover’s. With 20 grams of plant-based protein, this burrito features several of Sweet Earth’s meatless Righteous Meats products, including Benevolent Bacon, new Tuscan Savory Grounds and wholesome ingredients like quinoa, fire-roasted tomatoes, basil and cheddar cheese.
Get Focused! The powerful combination of protein, fiber, magnesium and 720 mg of omega3 provide lasting fuel to defog your morning brain. This morning burrito consists of scrambled eggs, smoked Gouda, kale and Tuscan Savory Grounds.
Lighten Up! Spinach, black eyed peas, red bell pepper and seasoned tofu are all sautéed in a homemade salsa verde for a Mexican-inspired breakfast that clocks in at only 190 calories.
Sweet Earth also debuted its new line of plant-based meats, Savory Grounds, which are pre-cooked, pre-seasoned and pre-sauced with fresh herbs, spices and vegetables. They come in Tuscan, Chipotle and BBQ, and are said to be a protein-rich alternative to meat products.
