(Chicago, IL) April 11, 2016—MXO GLOBAL INC., manufacturer of TOLERANT Foods, announces it is launching a new Energy Legume Blend pasta, and new package design for its rebranded, single ingredient legume pastas, Simply Legumes™ this spring.
TOLERANT Simply Legumes™ and Energy Legume Blends are an excellent option for many consumer categories such as: clean eating, vegans, weight management, restricted diets and “Flexitarians” (a growing movement of consumers who are primarily vegetarian, but sill periodically eat meat).
“Our new Energy Legume Blend offers consumers an affordable, high protein, nutrient dense legume-based alternative compared to other similar pastas that use corn or rice.” said Shawn Pinsky, Vice President of MXO GLOBAL INC. “Recent data released by Clinical Nutrition from a placebo-controlled study points out that daily consumption of yellow pea fiber could reduce body fat and impact energy among obese adults; pea is a leading trend in 2016: The Year of the Pulses.”
According to a recent Global Pea Proteins Market Analysis, the global pea proteins market is expected to witness growth in light of rising health consciousness coupled with increasing demand for plant-based food supplements. Additionally, it cites that growing popularity of meat substitutes and increasing concern towards lactose intolerance among adults coupled with rising demand for gluten-free products are some of the key factors expected to drive pea proteins market over the forecast period.
