Smart Flour Foods has received Non-GMO Project verification for its pizza crusts. Achieving Non-GMO Project Verified status for the crusts falls right in line with the company’s values, say company officials. Smart Flour Foods’ pizza crusts are made with a proprietary flour blend of naturally gluten-free sorghum, amaranth and teff, which provide a classic texture and enhanced nutritional profile, officials add. They are also certified gluten free, vegan, soy free, dairy free and Kosher.
Currently boasting 10 products in its retail lineup and experiencing significant growth in the restaurant business, the company continues to innovate with the introduction of chef-inspired, Italian varieties, including Tuscan-Inspired Uncured Two Meat and Chicken Sausage. In addition, Smart Flour Foods recently launched a family-size lineup featuring classic flavors and a new Italian sausage variety. The larger product size is designed to appeal to mainstream consumers looking for better-for-you alternatives to classic comfort foods.
“The feedback we’ve received over the years for our ancient-grain based products has been amazing," says Sameer Shah, vice president of marketing at Smart Flour Foods. "We’re honored to not just be part of the natural foods movement but to be paving the way for higher-quality and more nutritious products that can be enjoyed by the whole family.”
All of Smart Flour Foods’ pizzas are free of artificial flavors and preservatives, hormones, nitrates and nitrites. In addition, thanks to its ancient grain ingredients, Smart Flour Foods’ pizza is higher in protein, vitamins and minerals than many leading conventional and gluten-free pizza brands, officials add.
Smart Flour Foods recently received Grocery Headquarters’ 2016 Wellness Trailblazer Award, which honors innovators in the wellness segment.
