Ganeden Biotech, a recognized world leader in the manufacturing and marketing of probiotics, and Frozen Naked Pizza, a forward-thinking company that sees prepared food as part of a solution to the diet-related epidemics of obesity and chronic disease, have partnered to include GanedenÊ¼s industry leading probiotic, GanedenBC30®, in the entire Frozen Naked Pizza product line.
“What better way to get your probiotics than in something thatÊ¼s your favorite food–pizza,” said Anne Zilvitis, vice president of marketing for Frozen Naked Pizza. “At Frozen Naked Pizza, we have made it our mission to improve the foods that you love without compromising the taste. We view it as our responsibility to help make food better for our customers. And adding the probiotic, GanedenBC30, helps make that possible.”
Given the need to freeze and then bake Frozen Naked Pizza, the product line requires a probiotic that is able to withstand extreme temperature changes without compromising the integrity and full benefit and delivery of the probiotic.
“GanedenBC30 can withstand all that,” said Zilvitis. “And Ganeden has so much research and testing to back up their product that weÊ¼re confident we chose the right probiotic for our pizza. GanedenBC30 delivers more active cultures than yogurt.”
Driven to develop solutions that are safe and effective for humans and animals, Ganeden Biotech has performed numerous clinical and research studies on GanedenBC30. Demonstrating substantial immune and digestive health benefits, GanedenBC30 fully supports GanedenÊ¼s “improving quality of life” mission.
“The two companies are very much in alignment with one another in regards to their mission: to make the foods youÊ¼re already eating healthier,” said Mike Bush, vice president of business development for Ganeden Biotech. “ItÊ¼s an exciting time in the world of probiotics—theyÊ¼re not just in yogurt anymore.”
Frozen Naked Pizza has all of the same nutritional and taste profiles and benefits as the take-out, Naked Pizza; itÊ¼s just frozen.
“Frozen Naked Pizza has captured a lot of attention from consumers since its launch in October 2011 and its increased availability across the western United States,” said Zilvitis.
Frozen Naked Pizza crust is made from an Ancestral Blend® of 10 grains and seeds plus agave fiber and beneficial bacteria GanedenBC30 (like the ones found in yogurt) for digestive balance. The grains used include oats, brown rice, buckwheat, quinoa, amaranth, teff, spelt, tapioca, and two kinds of wheat. This diversity of grains and fiber are the main reason for that satisfied feeling you get after eating Frozen Naked Pizza, contrast that with most other pizzasÊ¼ highly processed single grain crust.
With seven veggies total, Frozen Naked Pizza is calling their Superbiotic™ Pizza the superhero of its flavors, both because of its delicious flavors and because of its toppings and ingredients. It can be found regionally in retail locations such as Bristol Farms and Sunflower, in the all-natural frozen foods aisle.
