CAULIPOWER launches gluten-free pizzas
From: Food Processing
A U.S. company has entered the gluten-free market with a line of ready-to-cook, cauliflower-crust pizzas.
With the catchy name of CAULIPOWER, the pizzas are made with real cauliflower and said to be nutrient-rich and gluten-free, with less sodium and sugar, and fewer kilojoules, than many conventional and gluten-free frozen pizzas. The pizzas are available in four varieties: Three-Cheese, Veggie, Margarita and plain crust.
CAULIPOWER is the brainchild of Gail Becker, who made the jump from a globally recognized corporate career to the world of entrepreneurship. After both of her sons were diagnosed with celiac disease, she was frustrated by the poor nutritional value of today’s gluten-free options.
“I knew there was a large segment of the population that wants to eat healthier but may not have the time or resources to make those foods from scratch. My vision for CAULIPOWER is to advocate for accessible nutrition that’s easy and even a bit unexpected. The ultimate hope is for the products to help nourish today’s children so that they can become healthy adults who contribute to a sustainable and better world,” said Becker.
CAULIPOWER supports OneSun, a fund creating edible gardens at under-served schools to educate children on where their food comes from, combat obesity and inspire a new generation to love and harvest vegetables.
