We've got many new keto-friendly products incoming:
Beyond Meat Original Brats and Hot Italian Sausages are the newest additions to our selection of meat alternatives, right next to the popular Beyond Meat Burgers! They have the “snap” of a traditional brat, and are perfect for any occasion. Just grill them up and top them with pile of your favorite fixings!
The Co-op also has a delicious addition to our sweet treat offerings. Staff favorite Petit Pot puddings come in four varieties, including vanilla, salted caramel, dark chocolate, and lemon. These single-serve puddings are organic and gluten-free, and come in beautiful reusable glass jars. You can find them in our cooler section.
We are very excited to be able to offer a new variety of vegan cheeses. Violife is available in both shredded cheddar and mozzarella, as well as in a feta block. Best of all, Violife is free of dairy, soy, gluten, lactose, nuts, and preservatives!
Miracle Noodles are all the rage with paleo, keto, low-carb, grain-free, and diabetic folks, and are now stocked up in New Pi’s pasta section. These translucent, traditional Japanese noodles are made from the fiber of the konjac yam, and are also called shirataki noodles. Shirataki means white waterfall, and refers to the appearance of these miraculous noodles. The konjac fiber is said to improve digestive health and also helps you feel fuller for longer. Dairy-free, gluten-free, grain-free, non-GMO, and vegan, Miracle Noodles are a fabulous, low-calorie pasta alternative for you and your family! Try them in pad Thai for a delicious dish.
By popular demand, we now offer single-serve oatmeal cups by Purely Elizabeth. You'll find Apple Cinnamon Pecan, Cranberry Pumpkin Seed, and Blueberry Lemon cups conveniently located next to the hot water dispenser at our coffee bar, and in the cereal aisle with our other packaged oatmeal. Snag one on your way to work to keep warm during the frigid Iowa winter months!
Eating Evolved Keto Cups hit the spot for those sweet tooth cravings. Considered a traditional keto “fat bomb,” Keto Cups pack 13 grams of fat fuel and only 1 gram of carb per cup. The ingredient list is blissfully simple, and we carry both Original and Coffee flavors. Each bag contains 7 individually wrapped Keto Cups (one for each day of the week), and retails for $10.49!
For you breakfast lovers, be sure to pick up Birch Benders Keto Pancake and Waffle Mix. The mix is as simple as it gets: just add water! Two pancakes contain 10 grams of fat, 5 net carbs, and no added sugar. Gluten-free, grain-free, low-carb, low glycemic index… keto breakfast doesn’t get better than this (unless you add a side of bacon)! Each bag contains enough mix for 8 servings of 2 pancakes and retails for $7.99.
By popular demand, we have added several new options from the Swerve product lineup, including baking sugar substitutes and cake mixes! You’ll find Swerve Granular, Swerve Confectioners, and Swerve Brown sweeteners with our other sugars and sugar substitutes. These are perfect for keto baking! If you want to keep it simple, try Swerve Vanilla and Chocolate Cake Mixes, which contain only 3 grams of net carbs per slice, zero added sugar, and are, of course, gluten- and grain-free. We all know cake is better with frosting, so be sure to grab a bag of Swerve confectioners and whip it up keto-style with butter, vanilla, and your milk substitute of choice.
Coming Soon: Wink Frozen Desserts are on the horizon for keto and vegan ice cream lovers alike. Be on the lookout for this sugar-free, low-calorie, plant-based delight in Cinnamon Bun, Cocoa Dough, Vanilla Bean, and Cake Batter!
Keep your eyes peeled for our new blue shelf tags guiding you to keto-friendly options! For your shopping convenience, we are now providing labels to guide our keto customers to the Co-op’s low-carb products!
