Food Importer Plans National Distribution For Pasta Alternative

April 9, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Food importer OA Foods has big plans for expanding distribution of alternative pasta Palmini as the carb-avoidance trend continues in the U.S. Palmini, made from hearts of palm, is available on Amazon and in Whole Foods Market stores in Florida. The plan is to take the product nationwide next year. According to Mintel, 41 percent of American consumers believe rice and grains are healthier than pasta and are looking for alternatives to wheat-based pasta. More than 90 percent of gluten-free Palmini is water; one serving contains 20 calories, four grams of carbs, and two grams of fiber. OA Foods spent two years developing a machine that can produce noodles made from hearts of palm, harvested from the center of the cabbage palm tree, on a commercial level.
