Internationally-known Italian pasta brand Barilla, has updated its Protein+™ line to remove the egg white from the recipe, and the products are now made entirely with 100% plant-based ingredients, specifically semolina durum wheat mixed with protein from lentils, chickpeas and peas.
Barilla is famous throughout the world with its brands – Barilla, Vero Gusto, Mulino Bianco, Pan di Stelle, Gran Cereale, Harrys, Pavesi, Wasa, Filiz, Yemina and Vesta, Misko, Voiello and Cucina Barilla. The new formula now applies to all seven varieties: Spaghetti, Angel Hair, Thin Spaghetti, Farfalle, Penne, Elbows and Rotini.
“We are always monitoring trends and looking to offer products that fit our consumers’ needs, and in this case, we focused on those that lead a completely plant-based lifestyle, but want more protein,” said Jean-Pierre Comte, President of Barilla Americas. “The Protein+ reformulation is a perfect example of our commitment to innovation and our dedication to providing pasta products that are made from simple, healthy ingredients.”
