Sweet Earth Natural Foods extended their line of Functional Breakfast Burritos in February with the launch of Get Cultured!, a vegan burrito filled with probiotic Ganeden BC30 from Ganeden Biotech (Cleveland, OH).

“The idea behind our line of Functional Breakfast Burritos was to create naturally functional options geared toward the most common health needs at breakfast time,” says Kathryn Kavner, marketing manager, Sweet Earth.

Sweet Earth says it has created the “world’s first probiotic breakfast burrito” with Get Cultured!, which also includes tofu, fermented red pepper, cabbage, edamame, and fresh ginger.

“Today’s consumer is actively searching for food items that promote good digestion and a healthy gut. The two main nutritional benefits to achieve this: high dietary fiber and active probiotics,” says Kavner. “There are very few options-and essentially none at breakfast-that can provide both of those key nutrients without the high sugar levels commonly found in breakfast foods.”

With 8 grams of fiber and a dose of Ganeden BC30, Kavner says the combination of functional ingredients, flavor, and convenience has helped Get Cultured! “carve out a really unique positioning within both the breakfast category and the functional food category.”
