|SAN JUAN BAUTISTA, Calif., April 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Earthbound Farm, a pioneering organic food company and the nation’s leading grower of organic produce, is expanding its popular line of kale-based Deep Green Blends with Kale Italia – a zesty mix of baby kale blended with popular Italian greens, arugula and radicchio – available in a 5oz clamshell package. Available now, this new addition reflects the continuing growth in consumer fascination with all things kale.
“We’ve heard the demand for more delicious ways to eat kale, and we’re delivering with an enticing new blend of flavors to meet the need,” said Nicole Glenn, Director of Product Innovation at Earthbound Farm. “Baby kale is so versatile that it satisfies that desire for an all-purpose green that works in smoothies, cooked recipes, and salads equally deliciously. And combined with the Italian greens in this blend, people will rave about Kale Italia as a tasty new take on the popular superfood.”
Lighter than Earthbound Farm’s other kale-based Deep Green Blends (Power or Zen), Kale Italia still has a crave-worthy crunch and a robust flavor. Beyond salad, this new blend is ideal for pastas, risottos, sautes and more. “Kale Italia has the versatility and freshness people want at a price they can afford,” added Glenn. “And the fact that it’s so nutrient-dense is a driving factor of its popularity.”
