This year’s IDDBA conference showcased a variety of plant-based products that meet the increasing demand from consumers. While I don’t eat a wholly plant-based diet, over the past year I’ve incorporated more and more options into my diet. After reviewing this year’s exhibitor list, I looked forward to sampling the wide variety of these products. I tasted my way around the showroom floor. While it was a hard decision to make, my three favorite plant-based products are:
Indulgent Snacking: Have a sweet tooth craving? Check out Tribe’s sweet hummus. With flavors such as Dark Chocolate, Sea Salt Carmel and Cake Batter, this innovative line has options sure to satisfy all of your cravings. The Peanut Butter is not only delicious; it is allergen free, giving those with nut allergies the opportunity to indulge as well!
Gut Health: Keep your gut healthy with Lifeway’s new line of vegan-friendly probiotic beverages. The beverages are all made with organic ingredients and are free from dairy, gluten, and soy. Flavors include Coconut Vanilla, Mixed Berry, Tropical Fruit, and Plain.
Alternative Proteins in the Deli Case: As a born and raised Jersey Girl, I’m a big fan of sub sandwiches. Good & Green’s new line of deli slices is a great option for those looking for a plant-based alternative to deli meat. Their deli slices have the look and texture of real meat and are easy to digest. Four great options are available: Veggie Prosciutto, Veggie Carpaccio, Veggie Lupini Beans, and Spicy Veggie.
