Alymer, ON, Canada, June 26, 2019 — CanAmPepper Company is introducing a sustainable and healthy spaghetti squash exclusively to foodservice at the Foodservice PMA in Monterey, CA.
The frozen spaghetti squash can be prepared in as little as two-minutes and has a minimum shelf-life of six months. The pre-peeled, cored, and par cooked squash is a low carb, nutrient rich option for an entrée or side dish which is both a great gluten-free pasta replacement and highly desired keto friendly ingredient.
Consumers can feel good about helping the planet while feeling great about the eating something nutritious. The CanAm ready-to-eat spaghetti squash is a sustainable product using vegetables not being sold into retail because of cosmetic blemishes “We are excited to increase yields and recovery for the farm, while fixing a problem and creating a delicious product”. Said Jammie Underhill, President of CanAm Pepper Company.
With only eight net carbs per cup, spaghetti squash is a fantastic option to appeal to healthy and conscious eaters everywhere. Spaghetti squash can be eaten on Paleo, Keto, Atkins, South Beach, Whole 30, and gluten-free diets. The lightly buttery and nutty flavor of the stringy vegetable allows for versatility in preparation beyond a pasta replacement.
“Try Spaghetti Squash in cuisines from around the world: Spaghetti Squash Cacio de Pepe, Spaghetti Squash Au-gratin, Spaghetti Squash Chow Mein, Spaghetti Squash Pad Thai, and Spaghetti Squash Bolognese to name a few. Even Spaghetti Squash fritters and taco shells are delicious! “ said Donya Litowitz, Product Development for CanAm Pepper Company.
CanAm’s test kitchen can help provide ideas for using this underutilized healthy and sustainable ingredient in foodservice.
