A healthy, quick and convenient alternative to traditional pasta, with all the advantages of steam cooking and the best of Mediterranean cuisine; that's what the new Calapasta, manufactured by Verdifresh, is offering: 100% natural courgette spirals that are now presented in an innovative packaging that allows for steam cooking (without adding fats) in just 3 minutes.
The new Calapasta, available in the more than 1,600 Mercadona stores across Spain, is the ideal complement to a healthy diet. With only 22 calories per 100 grams, Calapasta is a very low fat food, rich in vitamins C, A and B, easy and convenient to prepare and suitable for vegans and those suffering celiac disease (as it doesn't contain gluten). Moreover, it facilitates the elimination of toxins thanks to its water content.
The innovative packaging, designed for use in microwaves, includes a valve for steam cooking with maximum ease, since the film does not have to be perforated when introduced in the microwave. The technology applied to the new container guarantees the protection of the vegetable's taste and its cooking quickly and easily without the use of fats or oils, which contributes to a balanced and healthy diet.
Calapasta is the courgette we've always known, but cooked like never before. The spirals can be used as a side or as a main dish. The courgette spaghetti can be eaten raw, in salads or cooked in the microwave or in a wok or frying pan. Furthermore, Verdifresh's new vegetable spaghetti is a fun way to offer vegetables to the little ones in the house. This new product, in short, is another step in Verdifresh's effort to meet the needs of consumers, who increasingly demand healthier, fresher and more natural products in comfortable, quick and convenient formats.
Calapasta is a new addition to the company's range of innovative products, such as Tabulé; a couscous and fresh vegetables salad (unpasteurized) presented in a novel 240 gram format. At Verdifresh, we are experts in the production of Mediterranean, healthy and fresh food. We help consumers in their efforts to have a balanced diet, with products that allow them to enjoy their daily lives anywhere and at any time.
