- RENEW Plant-Based Protein combines nourishing seed protein and functional mushrooms -


SISTERS, Ore., Oct. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Laird Superfood (NYSE American: LSF) is continuing its focus on plant-based superfood products with the introduction of its RENEW Plant-Based Protein powder. Laird Superfood's RENEW Plant-Based Protein features 19 grams of plant-based protein plus 9 naturally occurring essential amino acids. It has no rice or pea protein, or preservatives.

"We set out to create an effective plant-based protein powder that is easier on the digestive system than the ones currently in the market," said Paul Hodge, CEO and co-founder of Laird Superfood. "At the same time, we wanted to develop a plant-based protein powder that has all nine essential aminos that our bodies don't produce, so we got to work on a product that we believe is the ultimate plant-based protein - made from a blend of seed proteins and functional mushrooms. It's a perfect, complementary addition to Laird Superfood's line-up of plant-based coffee creamers, hydration products, beverage enhancing supplements, roasted and instant coffees, teas and hot chocolate, and harvest snacks."

With the combined real ingredients of Hemp Seed Protein, Pumpkin, and Sacha Inchi Seed Protein, with a blend of Functional Mushroom extracts, the RENEW Plant-Based Protein aims to keep consumers nourished, charged and energized.

Plant-Based Protein Ingredients:

  • Organic Sacha Inchi Seed Protein – this power-packed seed is a complete protein offering all 9 essential amino acids.
  • Organic Hemp Seed Protein – with 20 amino acids including the 9-essential amino acids -- the building blocks of protein, making it a must-have ingredient in any plant-based protein powder.
  • Organic Cranberry Seed Protein – boasts 16 essential amino acids with a tart flavor profile.
  • Organic Unroasted Pumpkin Seed Protein – also known as "pepitas."

Functional Mushroom Extracts Included:

  • Organic Maitake – Maitake means Dancing mushroom in Japanese and is considered an adaptogen. It may help maintain the immune system and has been used for hundreds of years in Eastern cuisine and medicine for its support of overall health and vitality.
  • Organic Lion's Mane – An edible mushroom native to North America, Europe and Asia. It has been traditionally used in Chinese and Japanese medicine for its cognitive support. Clinical studies report that regular consumption of Lion's Mane may support nerve and brain health. Beta-glucans, like the ones in Lion's Mane, have been studied for their effect on immune and overall wellness.
  • Organic Chaga – Considered the "King of Mushrooms," Chaga has been referred to as "Chaga Gold" for its valuable properties. Studied for its support of the immune system, Chaga is a "go-to" for overall well-being.

Food Spotlight: Plant-based NON-GMO and Organic Food Ingredient Supplier Green Boy Launches Plant-Meat Protein™

 

LOS ANGELES and AMSTERDAM, Oct. 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Green Boy Group announced today that it has launched Plant-Meat Protein™; a functional plant-based protein powder that is NON-GMO and developed as 'meat' grade. Plant-Meat Protein™ enhances mouthfeel, boosts nutritional properties and enlarges the textured aspects in plant-based meat products.

Plant-Meat Protein™ is introduced to the food industry for the production of plant-based meat like plant-based burgers, nuggets, sausages but also to produce textured plant-based proteins (TPP) in the form of crisps or granules. Plant-Meat Protein™ comes in four different types of protein made from Pea, Mung Bean, Fava Bean and Chickpea.

"We are beyond excited to have launched Plant-Meat Protein™ because of the rapidly growing demand for plant-based meat by consumers," says Peter van Dijken, Green Boy Group Co-Founder. "Green Boy already supplies the leading brands in the plant-based meat industry and with Plant-Meat Protein™ we hope to enlarge our footprint in the North American and European market and make it more readily available via our distribution channels for food manufacturers who focus on producing plant-based meat and are looking for the next generation of plant-based proteins."

"Plant-based protein is a key ingredient in the formulation of a plant-based meat product," explains Frederik Otten, Co-Founder of Green Boy Group. "This market is evolving with lightning speed and plant-based meat products made with vital wheat gluten or soy protein are not as popular due to allergy concerns along with whey and casein proteins as they are of dairy origin. With Plant-Meat Protein™ we offer a line of more functional, sustainable and healthier plant-based proteins as the building block for the next plant-based meat hit product on the supermarket shelves, in the fast-food chains or online," added Otten.

Green Boy Group, founded in 2016 by Frederik Otten and Peter van Dijken, is a leading non-GMO and organic plant-based food ingredients supplier in North America and Europe. Green Boy Group is based in Los Angeles, California and Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Snack Spotlight: ParmCrisps Launches Plant-Based, Dairy-Free Cheese Crisps

 

The 100% Cheese Cracker Enters the Plant-Based Category to Expand Consumer Base

MONTCLAIR, N.J., Sept. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- ParmCrisps, the nutritionally on-trend snack brand, has once again broken through the confines of the cracker category. The brand is eager to announce its newest line, Plant-Based ParmCrisps, made from 100% dairy-free cheese. Plant-Based ParmCrisps will come in two timeless flavors: Sea Salt and Cracked Black Pepper, and will be a first-of-its kind product that caters to the plant-based lifestyle.

Grocery sales of plant-based foods have grown 29% in the past two years, according to SPINS data released in 2020. Plant-based cheese, in particular, has seen an 18% spike since 2019. Americans are increasingly enlisting in a plant-based lifestyle with vegan options, and the plant-based category has exploded to reach $5 Billion in 2020. As a result, restaurants, retailers and food brands are innovating swiftly and strategically.

"The ParmCrisps innovation strategy has always been developed with the consumer top-of-mind," says Sam Kestenbaum, CEO of ParmCrisps. "When we noticed a trend toward plant-based snacking, we partnered with Whole Foods to create a solution for both our consumers and our retail partners. Plant-Based ParmCrisps is that solution, and it tastes so good that we're confident both mainstream and plant-based consumers will fall in love."

According to SPINS, the last 52 weeks have proved ParmCrisps as the number one Cheese Crisp brand in both the Natural and Grocery category, as well as the Natural Channel's fastest growing brand in the entire cracker set. As the Natural Channel leader, Whole Foods and its parent company, Amazon, partnered closely with ParmCrisps for the development and launch of this dairy-free crisp, and will have an exclusive on the item in 2020. This first-ever dairy-free cheese crisp will be driving incremental basket sizes and bringing new consumers into the exploding Cheese Crisp category.

Consumers can find these first of their kind, plant-based cheese crisps in Whole Foods nationwide in October 2020 for an SRP of $4.79. ParmCrisps are the first ever no sugar, no gluten snack made from real, oven-baked cheese, and now, dairy-free options.

About ParmCrisps
ParmCrisps Branded Snacks are artisan-crafted, crunchy crisps made from oven-baked cheese and premium seasonings. Whether consumers are Keto, Plant-Based or Sugar-Free, ParmCrisps brings them a go-to snack that fits their cravings and lifestyle. ParmCrisps also offers Snack Mixes, the first low-carb, low-sugar Snack Mix to satisfy even the biggest cravings. The brand has been celebrated as a favorite, innovative snack by Food Network, Hungry Girl, NOSH, Medium, Whole Foods Magazine, Oxygen Magazine and more. ParmCrisps can be found and purchased on ParmCrisps.com, and in major retailers nationwide.

New Cashew Cream Cheeses from Treeline Cheese

Food Spotlight: Treeline Introduces New Line Of Cream Cheeses As Consumer Demand For Plant-Based Foods Soars

 

~Delicious, Dairy-Free 'Schmear' for Your Morning Bagel Now Available from the Pioneer of Premium, Plant-Based Cheeses

KINGSTON, N.Y., July 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- With more consumers turning to plant-based and dairy-free foods, Treeline Cheese today announces its new line of cream cheeses. These tangy cream cheeses are made from cultured cashew nuts and other natural ingredients and are available in three flavors: Plain, Chive & Onion and Strawberry.

The Plain cream cheese has a rich, creamy texture, with just five ingredients, and is perfect for a 'schmear' on a bagel. A hint of sweetness and real strawberries make the Strawberry cream cheese the perfect sweet spread. Fresh chives and onions bring a savory, yet balanced, taste to this classic variation.

"As more consumers look to reduce their dairy intake, the introduction of delicious and creamy plant-based cheeses that match the rich flavors and consistency of dairy cheese is driving category growth.  Treeline appeals to a broad spectrum of consumers from flexitarians to vegans," says Treeline CEO Justin Lambeth.  An added benefit of Treeline's new cream cheeses is their low levels of saturated fat compared to dairy cream cheese and many other plant-based cream cheeses.

With an array of cheeses, Treeline has reinvented non-dairy cheese with an artisanal process, drawing on traditional dairy cheese-making methods. Treeline ferments, or cultures, creamy cashew nuts with a healthy probiotic, known as L. Acidophilus. This produces a creamy consistency, smooth texture and the rich, natural flavors normally associated with fine dairy cheeses.

In addition to the new cream cheeses, Treeline makes 4 flavors of soft French-Style cheese -        Herb Garlic, Scallion, Sea Salt & Pepper and Chipotle-Serrano – and 2 varieties of aged cheese wheels: Classic and Cracked Pepper Aged Cheese.

All Treeline Cheeses are completely natural, without artificial ingredients, stabilizers, and thickeners. All Treeline products are vegan, certified non-GMO, gluten-free, and Kosher Parve.

Treeline is available online at www.treelinecheese.com and nationwide in over 3,000 stores, including local health food stores, co-ops and 'chain' stores such as Whole Foods, Sprouts, Kroger, Fred Meyer, Ralphs and Wegmans.

About Treeline

With manufacturing facilities in Kingston, New York, Treeline was founded in 2012 by Michael Schwarz, a former intellectual property attorney, who set out to produce vegan, cruelty-free cheeses that rival the best-tasting cheeses from France and Italy.

About the Company
Let's face it, most people still think of farmer's markets and 1960's hippies when they hear "natural nutrition". We know. And when it comes to sports and performance products, "natural" is often regarded with some serious skepticism. But not long ago, when someone mentioned electric cars, images of boring body styles, made for commuters and suburban parents came to mind. Now that has changed, hasn't it? Super fast, powerful, high-tech, jaw-drop worthy, and futuristic looking cars come to mind when mentioning electric. It took re-imagining and innovation to change not only the product itself but also the public's perception of what it is and can be moving forward. That's exactly what we think is possible in the world of sports nutrition.  Read More

All sport. All clean. All plant-based.

IRVINE, Calif., May 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Orgain, leader in clean nutrition products, introduced its new Orgain Organic Sport Line of organic, plant-based powders crafted from high quality, food-based anti-inflammatory ingredients, and high in antioxidant Vitamin C and adaptogens to support optimal performance and recovery.

"I noticed varied product offerings within the sports nutrition market and knew we could design a more elevated option with unique ingredients that would provide a clean way to aid performance," said Orgain founder and CEO, Dr. Andrew Abraham. "We began working with ingredients that were less common in sports performance products.

Dr. Abraham continues, "Orgain's Organic Sports Line is like nothing before seen on the market."

Together, these ingredients support athletes in feeling their best, before and after a workout.

Orgain Organic Sport Energy Powder: A plant-based energy boost to support all kinds of activities, Orgain Sport Energy Powder includes organic beets known for their energizing and anti-inflammatory properties, 80mg caffeine naturally divided from green coffee beans, and is high in Vitamin C from organic amla fruit.

All three of Orgain's performance products are organic and crafted from food-based ingredients, which are vegan and free of soy and gluten ingredients. Orgain's Organic Sport Line began its nationwide rollout in Whole Foods starting in May (with the Organic Sport Protein Powder and Sport Recovery Powder), followed by the Organic Sport Energy Powder in June.

About the Company
On a recovery journey from advanced-stage cancer, our CEO and founder, Elizabeth, built her diet around nourishing, high-fat foods. That’s when Liz discovered the Pili nut. Grown in volcanic soil in Southeast Asia, Pili has the highest vitamin E and magnesium of any nut. Blown away by its rich, buttery flavor, Liz began blending Pili nuts with coconut milk. The result was unlike anything she’d ever tasted before; spoonably thick, deliciously rich.

Over the next three years, Liz worked on perfecting the recipe. Instead of taking industry shortcuts like gums, coloring agents, artificial flavors, or sugar—she forged her own path. She discovered young plantains added a beautiful texture and hint of natural sweetness. And vegan probiotics added the perfect tartness. Today, Liz is healthy and Lavva is alive for all to enjoy.

Company Spotlight: WellWell

 

 

What’s WellWell?

In the world of sports drinks and wellness beverages, it’s hard to find options that are both free of artificial ingredients and supported by scientific research. However, the founders of WellWell wanted to create drinks rooted in science that taste work and taste great. Frustrated by the pseudoscience being pimped in the wellness world, they worked hard to create products that they actually wanted to use that were also made with natural ingredients combined in recipes based on science. WellWell’s drinks weren’t created in a lab, but their effectiveness was proven in one. Because WellWell’s founders love science and hate sugar water. WellWell believes in real, wholesome food, and the power of great ingredients. WellWell makes functional beverages that function. If it’s in a WellWell bottle, it’s proven to do what it says.

 

What makes WellWell actually functional compared to other brands?

We feel that feeding you marketing BS without a solid product is a bit unethical, and quite frankly, there's enough of that already going around. We use real doses of the functional ingredients and we tell you what those doses are on the actual bottle. Nothing to hide here. Also, our company was co-founded by a medical doctor, so we're not just making shit up.

 

Does WellWell use any fake sugars like stevia or erythritol?
Nope. All of our drinks are 3-4g of either organic cane sugar or organic golden coconut sugar. Recover (Watermelon + Tart Cherry) has no added sugar at all.
