Finding a nutritious meal can be a struggle when many of us spend the majority of our day away from home at work or school. It is common for people (especially students) to get most of their nutrition directly from food service organizations. Whether it is a bustling hospital cafeteria or campus dining hall, food service workers are routinely providing food to diverse stomachs, which presents unique challenges.
Allergies are one of the most prominent hurdles that food services face. Food Allergy Research and Education Inc. estimates that up to 15 million Americans have some type of food allergy, including 5.9 million children under the age of 18. That is equivalent to 1 in every 13 kids, or roughly 2 per classroom.
Peanuts and other tree nuts account for 25% of the top 8 allergens in the United States. Food service organizations consequently may find it difficult to plan meals with adequate protein and other important nutrients. That is why we created SunButter.
SunButter is a safe alternative protein that is free of all the top 8 allergens, and filled with vitamins and nutrients. SunButter is also extremely versatile and can be used to create a variety of delicious meals. To help show some of the tasty and creative ways that anyone can use SunButter, we created a brand-new recipe book!
This book features meals that are nutritious and a delight to eat. While SunButter can simply be eaten on a sandwich, this recipe book features everything from breakfast to meat replacement options. Just as importantly, this book explains how to scale these recipes when large numbers of servings are required.
The four meal categories in the SunButter Food Service Recipe Book are: Breakfast, Meat Alternatives, Entrees, and Desserts/Snacks. Here is a peek at some of the recipes from each section.
- SunButter Banana Raisin Bread
- Sunny SunButter Spicy Noodles
- Spicy SunButter Coleslaw
- SunButter Chicken Enchiladas
- Sunny SunButter Hummus
And these are just the beginning! SunButter is making it possible for food service organizations around the country to plan healthy and delicious meals.
