Gardein, the plant protein brand offering a variety of convenient and versatile foods, has introduced Meatless Pepperoni Pizza Pockets. They are quick and easy to prepare and perfect for an on-the-go lifestyle, say company officials.
Each pocket consists of a non-GMO wheat flour outer crust, filled with marinara sauce, meatless pepperoni and vegan mozz'rella, and contains nine-grams of total protein. They are vegan, Kosher, cholesterol free and contain fewer calories, less sodium and 42 percent less fat than conventional pizza pockets, officials add.
"Pizza is a great favorite but is high in fat, sodium and calories", says Yves Potvin, founder and president of Gardein. "We wanted to satisfy our consumers' needs for a delicious, convenient pizza pocket while making it better for them and the planet."
