An Allergen-Free, High-Protein, Vegan Solution Has Arrived
NORWALK, CT, Feb 12, 2014 – Living Harvest – Tempt has become a food industry pioneer as the first to launch a line of all-natural hemp tofu. Currently being integrated into Whole Foods Markets across the country, hemp tofu will give vegans, vegetarians and those suffering from food allergies, a simple high protein solution that is nutritionally beneficial and easily digestible.
As a brand that falls under the Healthy Brands Collective umbrella, Tempt products align with its parent company’s overall mission of creating healthier foods for healthier lifestyles. Known for its line of flavored hemp milks and hemp protein powders, Tempt hemp tofu has revolutionized a vegan alternative to meat that is traditionally made of soy.
“This is an exciting time for us,” said Healthy Brands Collective Co-Founder/CMO Donna Ratner. “Industrial hemp is a hot topic right now that is influencing farming, the foods we eat, and the products we buy. We’re proud to bring awareness to the nutritional benefits and value of this wonderful plant. Hemp is high in magnesium, iron, potassium, fiber, phytonutrients and natural antioxidants including vitamin E.”
One of the most nutritious and sustainably grown plants in the world, hemp is a vegan, plant-based, non-GMO superfood that is free from common allergens, including soy, dairy and gluten. Containing a balanced ratio of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, hemp also has all 10 essential amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein. There are hundreds of uses for hemp, as it is sustainably grown without the use of pesticides and herbicides. The plant has no drug value, and Living Harvest – Tempt products contain 0.00% THC.
Similar to traditional tofu brands, Tempt hemp tofu can be baked or sautéed, and has a diverse ability for culinary recipes. This new line of hemp tofu is available in four flavors: Original, Chimichurri, Mexican Chorizo and Sweet & Spicy Chili Lime. It’s priced starting at $3.49 for an 8 oz. package. Tempt hemp tofu is exclusively available at Whole Foods nationwide through 2014 and the brand looks forward to expanding availability throughout the country in the near future.
