Teasdale Latin Foods has introduced its new Teasdale Simply Especial line of flavored beans.
The chefs in the Teasdale kitchen have fused pea protein into the formulas for the Simply Especial line to get 10 grams of plant-based protein per serving.
“This is a very exciting time and we’re at the forefront of innovation in the bean category. Right now, there is a global shift toward plant based-proteins. More and more consumers are incorporating plant-based proteins into their diets and we plan on being right there to provide them with quality and great flavors they can enjoy,” said Yvonne Conroy, director of marketing and innovation at Teasdale Latin Foods.
Teasdale Simply Especial comes in 15.5-oz. cans and is available in five Latin-flavored varieties including chili verde, chipotle rojo, Peruvian, spicy Cuban and Mexican chili. The company says the line already has received interest with early distribution gains at key retailers across the country.
