Armour® has created an option for sodium-conscious consumers who love pepperoni but aren’t willing to sacrifice flavor. The use of a new all-natural sodium replacer allows Armour to reduce sodium by 50 percent vs. its regular pepperoni. Armour Lower Sodium Pepperoni offers a snack and or ingredient choice for the nearly 25 percent of consumers who monitor sodium on nutrition labels (a statistic found in “The Healthy Eating Consumer Trend Report” from Technomic in 2010.)
“We’ve found one size does not fit all as pepperoni consumers have developed strong preferences for specific sizes, forms and flavors,” said AJ Miller, brand manager with the John Morrell Food Group. “Our lower-sodium pepperoni offers an alternative for people with healthier lifestyles while giving them the great taste of pepperoni they love.”
Armour Lower Sodium Pepperoni is available in 5.0-oz. resealable packages. The product is now available at Walmart, Meijer and other popular retail outlets, with greater distribution anticipated in 2012. For more information visit www.armourmeats.com.
