EAGLE, Idaho– Nature’s Earthly Choice is now offering two new products that are going to make healthy eating a whole lot easier: Broccoli Rice and Cauliflower Rice in microwavable pouches. With 35 or fewer calories per serving, these shelf-stable products are designed for people who are looking for great-tasting, nutritious foods that are simple to incorporate into a healthy diet. Ready in 90 seconds, both the Broccoli Rice and Cauliflower Rice can be cooked in the microwavable pouch or in a skillet with a bit of olive oil and water. These new vegetable-based rice products demonstrate Nature’s Earthly Choice’s commitment to providing high-quality, on-trend foods made with the best, simplest and most nutritious ingredients.
“With more and more people today adopting low-carbohydrate ways of eating, such as the ketogenic diet or the paleo diet, vegetable-based rice is becoming a popular and important part of home-cooking,” said Chuck Watson, president of Nature’s Earthly Choice. “Not only do our Broccoli Rice and Cauliflower Rice offer people a way to eat more vegetables, they are a solution for those who have been looking for tasty, wholesome, low-carb alternatives to traditional rice products.”
Both products contain three simple ingredients: broccoli or cauliflower, water, and malic acid. Malic acid is naturally occurring and can be found in certain fruits like apples and pears. The Broccoli Rice contains 35 calories, only 35 mg of sodium, 2 grams of protein, 7 grams of net carbohydrates, and zero added sugar per half-cup serving. The Cauliflower Rice contains 25 calories, only 30 mg of sodium, 2 grams of protein, 3 grams of net carbohydrates, and zero grams of added sugar per half-cup serving. With a flavor and texture like brown rice, these products can be swapped into any recipe containing rice or used as a light and simple side dish.
Nature’s Earthly Choice Broccoli Rice and Cauliflower Rice are available at most major retailers with a suggested retail price of $2.99. For more information visit EarthlyChoice.com.
