WALNUT CREEK, Calif.— Modern Table, maker of delicious, complete protein pastas and mac & cheese, is excited to unveil its first-of-a-kind complete protein Vegan Mac line in three mouthwatering flavors — Southwest, Classic Cheddar Style and White Cheddar Style — which will be available nationally at Whole Foods Market.
Veganism and plant-based diets are on the rise. According to recent Nielsen reports, veganism has had triple digit growth in the U.S. since 2014. “Vegan food is not only for strict vegans anymore,” said Rachel Ercole, brand marketing manager at Modern Table. “It’s now spreading to the mainstream and nothing is more broadly appealing than mac & cheese!”
“Some of our most loyal customers are strictly vegan but many more think of themselves as flexitarian – looking to eat less meat and dairy,” Ercole, continued. “We worked hard to develop vegan sauces we enjoyed eating ourselves. So it’s exciting to finally be able to share these three new Vegan Mac flavors with everyone.”
While vegan mac & cheese is not new, Modern Table is the first to offer a complete protein vegan mac with its pasta made from a unique blend of lentils, rice and peas delivering all nine essential amino acids for long-lasting energy, good digestion and improved muscle health. Modern Table pasta is a clean, nutritious alternative to traditional wheat pastas and is GMO-free, vegan and gluten-free. Combined with Modern Table’s newly developed dairy-free cheese sauces, all three flavors pack up to 16 g of protein per 3.5 oz. serving and deliver the gooey, cheesy mouthfuls one expects from mac & cheese.
Combining the power of complete plant protein with the joy of comfort food, all three new vegan mac flavors serve two people and will be available nationally at Whole Foods Market in February – each for $3.49-$3.99 MSRP.
