Saffron Road Introduces Globally Inspired Appetizers and Snacks
American Halal Co., Stamford, Conn., continues to grow its Saffron Road brand with a line of frozen appetizers and shelf-stable, non-GMO verified chickpea snacks.
The hand-made appetizers capture South Asian and Middle Eastern culinary traditions and serve as a healthier alternative for retailers looking to stock the freezer aisle with ethnic options their shoppers can feel good about eating. Based on phyllo dough, the new frozen appetizers are: Turkish Figs & Goat Cheese (vegan); Dates, Tamarind & Walnuts; Crispy Samosas with Saag Paneer; and Crispy Samosas with Vegetables (vegan).
The Crunchy Chickpeas come in three flavors -- Bombay Spice, Falafel and Wasabi — and are the company's first entry into the snack foods category. They should appeal to the healthy-snacking consumer, as each 1-oz. serving contains 6g of protein and only 4g of fat.
