Edison Grainery Offers Organic Quinoa Pasta
Edison Grainery received the 2013 Food and Beverage Innovations Awards (FABI) from the National Restaurant Association during its annual conference in May for its line of Organic Quinoa Pasta.
Introduced less than a year ago to the natural products channel, the line includes five pasta forms: elbows, fusilli, orzo, penne and spaghetti. The pasta is based on a 60/40 combination of organic long-grain white rice flour and organic quinoa flour. These gluten-free pastas have a texture similar to whole-wheat pasta and can stand up to the heaviest sauces. The 16-oz., earth-friendly retail pouch has a suggested retail price of $5.50. There are 5-lb. and 25-lb. bags for foodservice. Retail cost is $5.50 for the 16-oz. bag.
