Our mission is "Improve the world with better food"
We are doing this with Veggiefries, the Smart Alernative ....
What are they?
VeggieFries look like normal fries, however they are not made of potatoes, but of pureed vegetables (carrots, corn and white beans), free-range egg proteins and flavoured by various herbs and spices. They are golden in colour, crispy on the outside and smooth inside (see Enclosure II).
VeggieFries suit every meal with meat, fish, chicken and vegetables. The fiber and protein in VeggieFries ensure that we feel satiated faster so we are less likely to quickly feel hungry again and improves bowel movement. They are patented in the USA, Canada and Europe
Reason for development
When Jaro, the son of food technologist Marc van Hulst, was 4 years old he loved to eat fries but hardly any vegetables. His parents really tried to make him eat vegetables, but he simply would not. This resulted in a lot of stress at the dining table. Marc van Hulst then started to develop fries made of vegetables, so that his son would eat vegetables without realising; that removed the stress at the dining table and Jaro suddenly also ate the ordinary vegetables because there was no longer any pressure to do so.
Why the Smart alternative?
Many of our modern lifestyle diseases (including obesity and type 2 diabetes ) are attributed to eating too much fast carbohydrates. These are present in products such as white potatoes, fries, pasta and white rice. There is now a great alternative to these foods, VeggieFries, with less and slow carbohydrates and they are high in fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals. A great choice for those who are conscious of what they eat.
