Patent issued on Cauliflower Crumbles processing method
Green Giant Fresh has been issued a U.S. patent on their Cauliflower Crumbles chopped cauliflower processing method, and a Canadian patent is pending. Their patented method — comprised of elements from processing to packing — maintains the freshness of the products while preventing discoloration and ensuring an optimal shelf life of 16+ days, according to the company.
These Cauliflower Crumbles products can become a stand-alone side dish, or serve as a healthy ingredient alternative for potatoes or pasta, the company claims.
Green Giant Fresh rolled out two new products effectively creating a Cauliflower Crumbles line. Cauliflower Crumbles “Fried Rice” Blend and Sweet Potato & Cauliflower Crumbles.
“Consumers are looking for time-saving alternatives, while staying healthy” said Jennifer Fancher, vice president marketing. “These blends — with all the time-consuming prep work done — promise little to no prep, no mess, no clean-up and no waste. Our cauliflower fried rice blend has just one-fourth the calories of regular fried rice.”
These convenient blends are recipe-ready for roasting, baking, sautéing, mashing or steaming right in their package, according to Green Giant. All Cauliflower Crumbles products are gluten-free, paleo friendly and can be used in everything from side dishes and salads, to pizza crust and even desserts, Green Giant claims.
