Healthy Farm, a frozen food brand under the Albatha Group, announced today that it will be showcasing a growing portfolio of plant-based products to HORECA at next week’s Gulfood 2020.
With a plan to convert more than 500,000 health-conscious consumers, the accent at Gulfood 2020 will be on new, innovative products intrinsic to Healthy Farm’s plant-based range.
Among the more popular items on display at the 5-day event will be Plant Protein Pea Kale and Quinoa – beef free, Plant Protein Pea Kale and Quinoa – chicken Free for starters. These vegan-certified dishes will be marketed in regular and spicy versions and made available in burger patties, meatballs, kebabs, mince, and chunks.
With more protein and more fibre, these exciting low-cholesterol meat alternatives sit well on the palate and enjoy the additional advantage of having no preservatives, no monosodium glutamate (MSG) and are without artificial colors, eggs, soya and gluten.
In addition to these options to relish and savor, also being introduced at Gulfood 2020 is Healthy Farm’s Chicken Quinoa & Kale with Salicornia burger, a must try item promising 40 percent less salt added, 25 percent more protein, 4 times more calcium, 12 times less fat and 90 percent less calories than traditional Chicken Burgers.
Aiming to help reduce salt intake, the key Superfood ingredient is Salicornia, a plant that replaces salt and delivers along with Quinoa and Kale, a healthy alternative with high nutritional profile, compared to regular chicken burgers.
Salicornia eventually will be grown locally in partnership with local farmers, as it thrives in salty environments and is already known for its antioxidant, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
