IRVINE, Calif., Jul 20, 2004 -- This summer, the creators of the meatless category will unveil 100% natural Gardenburger Meals, a line of six delicious, microwavable, single-serve entrees. Designed especially for today's time-challenged, health-conscious consumers, Gardenburger Meals are low in calories and fat, a terrific source of soy protein and great for those watching their net carbs.
"Consumers are increasingly seeking foods that are simple to prepare, yet flavorful and nutritious," said Scott Wallace, CEO of Gardenburger. "The introduction of this soy-based entree line demonstrates that Gardenburger continues to lead and innovate in this category."
Gardenburger Meals are the only all-natural, protein-based meatless entrees available today. These filling, mouth-watering varieties include:
-- Herb Grilled Chicken with Vegetables
-- Meatballs with Penne Marinara
-- Southwestern Chicken with Vegetables
-- Sweet & Sour Pork with Rice
-- Citrus Glazed Chicken with Green Beans & Rice
-- Meatloaf with Broccoli & Red Peppers
Gardenburger Meals can be found in the meatless section of the frozen food department in grocery and natural foods stores later this summer. Each box contains one serving and the suggested retail price is $3.49.
All of Gardenburger's soy-based products, including its new entree line, contain Solae(TM) brand protein. Solae ingredients ensure great taste and good-for-you products that can easily be incorporated into everyday life.
