Food, Beverage & Nonfood Products 94 | Progressive Grocer | Ahead of What's Next | March 2017 Don't Have a Cow The most common food allergy among infants and young children is to cow's milk, with about 2.5 percent of kids younger than 3 affected. Goat milk can offer a way around this allergy, including products such as Kabrita USA's latest variety in its Goat Milk Yogurt and Fruit pouch line, Sweet Potato Apple & Cinnamon. Made with organic sweet potato, organic apple purée and organic cinnamon, as well as antibiotic-free whole goat-milk yogurt, the 3.5-ounce product is high in vitamins A and E; contains no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives; and comes in squeez- able BPA-free packaging. The 70 percent organic product has an SRP of $1.99 per 3.5-ounce pouch. Plant Power Today, more than half of Americans believe that plants are the best source of pro- tein, according to research firm Packaged Facts, suggesting that Hain Celestial's Yves Veggie Cuisine Falafel Balls and Kale & Quinoa Bites have arrived on shelves at an opportune moment. The Falafel Balls are Middle Eastern mainstays made from chickpeas, onions, carrots, and a blend of herbs and spices, while the Kale & Quinoa Bites contain their two eponymous superfoods and feature crispy edges and a soft, hearty center. Both are vegan, made without soy or GMO ingredients, kosher, and free from gluten, cholesterol, trans fat, and artificial flavors and preservatives. The SRPs range from $5.81 to $6.80 per 8.4-ounce package. Exotic Charcuterie With charcuterie and cured meats continuing to grow in popularity, D'Artagnan has introduced two additional flavors of its shelf- stable saucisson sec: Wild Boar and Duck. The former is made with wild-boar meat, red wine and black pepper, while the latter contains rich Rohan duck meat and such aro- matic spices as clove and nutmeg. The sausages are air-cured and made the traditional way: by hand, all naturally, in small batches, and without the use of additives or preservatives. The heritage-bred ducks from which the duck sausage is made come from small farms that never use antibiotics or hormones, while the boars are humanely trapped and said to offer a "true taste of the wild." The SRP is $10.99 per 6-ounce sausage. Matchmaker Marinades Because not all marinade flavors are suitable for all types of meat, Mc- Cormick & Co. has launched Stubb's marinade mixes specifically created to flavor different types of meat with "big Texas taste." They are Beef Mari- nade Mix (with soy sauce, garlic and red pepper); Texas Steakhouse Mari- nade Mix (with ancho chili and garlic); Chicken Marinade Mix (with citrus and onion); and Pork Marinade Mix (with chili, lime and ginger). Consumers add pantry staples such as oil and vinegar to marinade up to 2 pounds of meat. The marinades come in 1-ounce packs with an SRP of $1.79 each.
