Food News: Jennie-O Introduces All Natural Turkey Sausage



New sausage recipe meets growing demand for "clean label" foods

WILLMAR, Minn., Jan. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- A versatile ingredient in many favorite recipes, sausage has long been a staple of American meals. Now, as more of today's consumers seek out all natural foods with simple ingredients Jennie-O — a company that believes eating well shouldn't come at the cost of taste — is serving up a lean and delicious solution perfect for breakfast, lunch and dinner: new JENNIE-O® All-Natural Turkey Sausage.

Available in original and hot varieties, new JENNIE-O® All Natural Turkey Sausage offers home cooks a great-tasting lean alternative to traditional pork sausage with lower fat content and a simple, clean ingredients list: just delicious turkey, salt, sugar, a blend of spices and rosemary extract.

In addition to its familiar ingredients, the newly formulated product delivers both improved flavor and nutritional benefits, with reduced sodium content and only 110 calories and 6 g of fat per serving. It is also minimally processed and free of BHT, BHA and other common preservatives.

"As more of our customers begin to look toward foods with simple ingredients, we are thrilled to offer a delicious turkey sausage, free of preservatives," says Mary Wieland, brand manager at Jennie-O Turkey Store. "Home cooks will love how easily the product can be added to their go-to recipes — from a lean protein added to classic breakfast dishes to a quick and tasty homemade pizza topping — it's sure to become a favorite."

The brand's latest offering comes as interest in natural and clean label foods has grown over the last several years into a major food trend. As of December 2015, more than 30 percent of consumers were cautious about serving foods with preservatives compared to 24 percent 10 years prior, according to NPD Group.1 The research group's 2016 "Report on Eating Patterns in America" indicates consumers' focus on "purity" in food will continue. The annual study shows people are seeking out minimally processed items and expectations are growing for food labels to highlight natural, recognizable ingredients.2 Today, the "Clean Supreme" trend for clean-and-clear labels is No. 1 on the Innova Market Insights list of Top 10 Trends for 2017.3

Delicious at any time of day, recipes for incorporating the sausage into breakfast burritos, casseroles, turkey sausage stuffed peppers, appetizers, quick-and-easy turkey sausage pizza and more, can be found on www.jennieo.com.

JENNIE-O® All Natural Turkey Sausage is now available at stores across the country, including Walmart, Save-A-Lot, HEB, Publix, Target, Meijer, Food Lion, Safeway, Cub Foods, Roundy's, Albertsons and many others. JENNIE-O® All Natural Turkey Sausage Hot flavor will be available in late January 2017.

Company Spotlight: Olive Water


Inspired by the Mediterranean Diet

Meet the refreshing drink with the rejuvenating power of a ¼ liter of extra virgin olive oil


“[Olive oil is] An age-old food with space-age qualities that medical science is just beginning to understand.”
-Tom Mueller, author of extra virginity




The Sustainable Drink
Did you know the olive is 15-20% oil and more than 50% water? That means only a small portion of each olive is pressed into actual olive oil. Its water, pits and skin are discarded as waste. In the Mediterranean, where most of the world’s olive oil is produced, this amounts to 11 million tons a year.

Using a solvent-free mechanical process, we treat this “waste” to remove any pits, skin and pulp, leaving behind a phytonutrient rich water complete with olive oil’s most revitalizing parts.




The Secret Within
Homer referred to it as “liquid gold”. Hippocrates christened it “the great healer”. For thousands of years, the virtues of olive oil have been praised by poets, philosophers and writers. Today, doctors and nutritionists embrace it for its extensive health and cosmetic applications, with clinical studies pointing to its rich phytonutrient, antioxidant and vitamin E content as the primary source of its benefits.

Olive oil is most widely recognized for its contributions to a healthy heart, skin and immune system. Yet the typical American diet consists of only a fraction of the olive oil consumed in the Mediterranean.

With 120 calories and 14 grams of fat in a tablespoon, it may not come as a surprise.

It’s why we set out to create a Mediterranean inspired beverage with only 20 calories. Each refreshing bottle of Olive Water® delivers the amount of phytonutrients found in a 1/4 liter of extra virgin olive oil, 100% vitamin C and 20% vitamin E, for a deeply nourishing blend of antioxidants that renew you from the inside out.


The Brand Story
EVEE founder Yani Andrianos was born and raised in Southern California, but spent many of his childhood summers in Greece, where he developed a passion for delicious and healthy Mediterranean cuisine and a love for olive oil.

In Greece, community and exercise complement a dietary pattern centered on whole grains, legumes, seasonal fruits and vegetables, wild fish and above all, cold pressed extra virgin olive oil. The world has come to know it as the Mediterranean diet, but to Greeks and other Europeans, it’s a lifestyle rooted in centuries of culture and tradition.

Inspired by the fundamental role of olive oil in the Mediterranean diet, and the many ways it can help improve people’s health, Yani set out to create a wholesome product that combined the best of two worlds – the nutritional power of olive oil with the convenience and enjoyment of a refreshing beverage. Three years later, Olive Water® was born – a rejuvenating, fruit flavored drink that captures the heart and soul of the Mediterranean diet, in a way never before imagined

If you're looking to make paleo desserts work for you, these little shredded coconut hunks will take care of your desire.

About the company

We were the first company to focus exclusively on paleo desserts (back in '09), and we are working to disrupt one of the biggest and most powerful industries in the world:  Big Sugar.  Our goal in the world of dessert is to make the finale to your meal as healthy as the appetizer and to make sure that your desserts taste as good or better than anything else you could make with "cheat" ingredients.

Started in May 2009, we have grown from making batches of cookies in a small kitchen to operating out of a commercial bakery. Although we've grown tremendously since starting we still ship every package ourselves (an excuse to continually sample Paleo Treats®).

We use the finest ingredients we can find, we keep it local as much as possible and while we're focused on selling "healthy" cookies if they don't taste the same or better than their standard equivalent, we won't make it.

About Kutoa
KUTOA™, which means “to give” in Swahili, was founded by young entrepreneur, Joey Grassia. The idea was born in late 2009, after Grassia had witnessed the effects of malnutrition during his time in South Asia and after he experienced a health scare of his own.

“The vast devastation I witnessed was unforgivable and became forever imprinted in my mind. Young children sitting helpless and hungry in dirt alleyways, while their parents worked in deplorable conditions to provide for them. In Vietnam and Cambodia, I met children who went to bed hungry every night in makeshift housing that often collapsed on them. The people I encountered and the situations I witnessed were both tragic and unforgettable." Keep Reading
