TRIDENT SEAFOODS INTRODUCES AWARD WINNING
10G PROTEIN NOODLES MADE WITH WILD ALASKA POLLOCK
AT NATIONAL RESTAURANT SHOW
Chicago, IL (May 9, 2019) –Trident Seafoods announced today the launch of its all new 10g Protein Noodles at the premier tradeshow for the global foodservice industry, the National Restaurant Association Show May 18-21. Introduced earlier this year at Seafood Expo North America, the company is aggressively expanding the reach of this revolutionary new product into the foodservice channel.
10g Protein Noodles are a protein-rich and gluten-free noodle made with wild Alaska Pollock. They are a versatile, flavor-neutral alternative to high-carb pastas. Made with just eight all-natural, non-GMO ingredients, they are fully cooked – simply thaw, prepare, and serve hot or cold. A 3 oz. serving contains 10g of protein,
7 carbs and 70 calories. They are also gluten-free, fat-free and contain 70mg of omega 3s.
“Today’s consumers are interested now more than ever in alternative ways to incorporate clean protein into their diets,” says John Salle, Trident’s SVP of Marketing and Innovation. Two of the hottest trends in the restaurant industry are alternative proteins and sustainable seafood. Now you can have them both and discover a new way to get hooked on protein.”’ Our noodle checks all the right boxes: they’re gluten-free, higher in protein, lower in carbs and low-calorie. And since it’s fully cooked, it’s super convenient and highly versatile. It’s also flavor-neutral, which means it pairs well with your favorite sauce no matter what the cuisine. Plus, the texture has a nice bite, and holds up extremely well in hot applications- even in soups and stir-fry.”
Trident’s 10g Protein Noodles are generating buzz and garnering early attention from discriminating food industry judges across America. They were recognized as what’s new and next in foodservice with a 2019 Food and Beverage (FABI) Award.
“The spirit of innovation is in our DNA and this is yet another example of our willingness to take bold steps,” commented Joe Bundrant, Trident’s CEO. “Our mission is to make fish the food of the future – and we certainly think our new noodle is an all-natural convenient way for consumers whether dining at home or away from home to incorporate more fish into their diet. And it just happens to be made with the perfect, most sustainable protein on the planet – Wild Alaska Pollock.”
