Applegate, a Bridgewater, N.J.-based division of Hormel Foods Corp., continues its mission to bring food products with clean label ingredients through a new partnership with Whole30, making it easier for customers following the Whole30 eating program to find compliant natural and organic meat products.
"At Applegate, we are motivated to continuously offer delicious food choices that fit in with a diverse range of eating habits and lifestyles. We are delighted to be working alongside Whole30 to deliver Whole30-compliant options to consumers," says Nicole Glenn, vice president of marketing for Applegate.
Whole30 is a 30-day dietary re-set designed to help people improve health, create new dietary habits and change consumers’ emotional relationship with food.
"Applegate products—like their hot dogs, prosciutto and dinner sausages—have been a staple in my household for years," says Melissa Hartwig, Whole30 co-creator. "Their commitment to animal welfare and clean ingredients makes them a choice I can feel good about, and their convenience makes it easy for me to get a delicious Whole30 dinner on the table even when I'm short on time."
Applegate offers a wide array of Whole30-approved products, including Organic Turkey Burgers, Natural Grilled Chicken Breast Strips, Natural No Sugar Bacon, Organic Dinner Sausages and Natural Beef Hot Dogs, among others.
All Applegate Whole30-approved products contain no added sugar of any kind, no grains, no dairy, no legumes, no alcohol (with the exception of wine vinegars) and high-quality protein with meat sourced from humanely raised animals that were never administered antibiotics or growth promotants.
Applegate Whole30-approved products can be found at retailers such as Whole Foods, Target and Fresh Direct.
