Angelic Bakehouse intros Reduced Sodium Flatzza Crusts
Angelic Bakehouse’s line of sprouted whole grain baked goods is expanding.
New to the brand’s portfolio is its Reduced Sodium Flatzza Crusts, which contain 50% less salt than its regular Flatzza crusts, the company said.
“Healthy pizza is no longer an oxymoron! We’re already proud of the protein, fiber and net carbs our Flatzza delivers, blowing away what a traditional pizza crust offers — now we provide a low sodium option too,” Jenny Marino, founder of Angelic Bakehouse said. “The Low Sodium Flatzza extends our existing line of low sodium products, including No Sodium Added Bread, Low Sodium Bread and Low Sodium Wraps. This reinforces our commitment to being a leading provider of low sodium food options; for those wanting or requiring low sodium diets, we’re excited to be able to meet their needs without sacrificing taste! We’re proud to make carbs with standards.”
Made using a sprouted and fresh-pressed method that pressed freshly sprouted whole grains directly onto the dough, the product contains 120 calories, 6 g of protein, 5 g of fiber, 2 g of sugar and 100 mg of sodium per serving.
“Our customers have continually asked for low sodium options, and we’re listening,” Marino said. “According to the American Heart Association, nine out of 10 Americans consume more than double the daily recommended level of sodium, and 65% of that comes from food bought in grocery stores. We have a responsibility to help consumers at the aisle, and are committed to being thoughtful and intentional with all of our ingredient decisions. When it comes to the Nutrition Facts label, we’re going to beat these large brands every time. We are extremely proud of the low sodium offerings we have on the market. American Heart Month is the perfect time to showcase what we bring to the table and how a change in lifestyle and diet habits doesn’t have to be bland. We are pleased to offer our consumers healthy and delicious alternatives to traditional market offerings, and be the brand that they rely on for the best low sodium options.”
In addition, the Reduced Sodium Flatzza Crusts are free of eggs, nuts, dairy, soy and sesame seeds, as well as non-GMO, kosher, vegan and free of seven of the top eight allergens excluding wheat, the company said.
