product roundup Blue Hill Beet Yogurt. Creating a stir with its savory yogurt concept, the famed Blue Hill produces a line starring parsnips, tomatoes, carrots, sweet potatoes, and butternut squash, with produce grown throughout the Northeast. Made with 100 per- cent grass-fed whole cow's milk, the 6-ounce yogurts made their debut in 2013. The beet version, which took home sofi gold last year, features roasted beets, honey, raspberry vinegar, beet juice concentrate, sea salt, and live active cultures. Renowned chef Dan Barber and his team at Blue Hill Restaurant in New York City and Blue Hill at Stone Barns in Pocantico Hills, N.Y., are behind the inventive line, with plans underway to expand their reach. bluehillyogurt.com FoodMatch Divina Red Beets in Mediterranean Marinade. Available in 6.1-pound cans for foodservice, these Greek beets are marinated in onion, oil, red wine vinegar, sea salt, pickled garlic, sugar, lemon peel, oregano, and black pepper. With a 24-month shelf life, they make an ideal component in a tomato, feta, and cilantro salad or a fennel and red onion salad, and even served solo as an antipasto. Divina, which works with small Mediterranean farms to source its ingredients, also produces olives, dolmas, and other antipasti, including gigandes (beans) and roasted red and yellow tomatoes. foodmatch.com Happy Family Happy Tot Blueberry, Pear, & Beet Pouches. In its line of organic fruit and vegetable mixes geared toward toddlers, Happy Family pairs beets with pear and blueberry purees, plus chia seeds and vitamin D. With 800 milligrams of omega 3 fatty acids, vita- min C, and 4 grams of fiber, it's just one of several products in this healthful line. And it's not the only beet-forward product. Happy Family offers such snacks as blue- berry and beet rice cakes; fruit and veggie crisps in banana, beet, and blueberry; and Greek yogurt in a variety of produce blends. happyfamilybrands.com La Pasta Butternut Squash, Red Beet & Goat Cheese Ravioli. Tinged a sunny yellow using egg and turmeric, these ravioli squares are made with durum wheat and semolina. Inside, they feature a colorful mixture of diced butternut squash and red beet, cheeses (goat, parmesan, mozzarella, and ricotta), chives, sage, brown sugar, nutmeg, sea salt, and black pepper. Its creators say the ravioli's distinctive pink coloring—the fresh beet filling bleeding through—was a happy accident. The 9-ounce packages, which garnered a 2014 sofi Award win in the Outstanding Pasta, Rice, or Grain category, keep for 45 days refrigerated. Other ravioli varieties in the company's retail line include asparagus and gruyere, exotic mushroom, goat cheese and basil, and more. lapastainc.com Lifeway Foods Veggie Kefir in Savory Beet. Blending a full serving of vegetables into its high-protein kefir, the com- pany's new bottled 8-ounce smoothies are avail- able in three varieties: savory beet, cucumber, and tomato. Ingredients in the savory beet version of the drinkable yogurt include pasteurized cultured lowfat milk, nonfat milk, beet juice, vitamins, and 12 probiotic cultures. With no added sugar or salt, this healthful beverage boasts 130 calories, 2 grams of fat, and 11 grams of protein. Lifeway Foods, founded by Russian immigrant Michael Smolyansky in 1986, produces an extensive line of kefir products for children and adults, plus cheese and lassi. lifeway.net Natural Sins Crispy Beetroot Thins. For this healthful, vegan snack, originally developed by a gourmet food shop in Costa Rica, Natural Sins cuts beets into trim, 1-millimeter-thick slices, sprinkles them with a bit of cane sugar, and bakes them to crispy—not foamy, gummy, or sticky, their creators proud- ly declare—perfection. Rich in fiber, each 1-ounce bag of thins has 100 calo- ries and no fat, preservatives, sodium, gluten, dye, or GMOs. The company's line also includes thins in mango, apple, pineapple, coconut, and orange varieties, all made with just fruit and cane sugar. naturalsinsonline.com 92 ❘ SPECIALTY FOOD MAGAZINE specialtyfood.com
