naturSource is Proud to be Awarded at the 2022 DUX Awards
naturSource® is proud to announce that we were recently awarded the 2022 DUX Grand Prix in the Best Taste in Food Products (pantry) category! We won with our Garlic & Herb and Vegan Caesar flavoured Uncroutons™; our revolutionary new salad topping that hit the shelves in 2021. DUX Eat Better is a Quebec based organization that seeks to publicly recognize and celebrate the efforts and innovation in the health food industry by showcasing and awarding products made by industry leaders. The organization is part of the greater movement within the industry to recognize those that are pushing the envelope by constantly improving their products, their impact on the environment,and the dietary choices made possible to the public, while also promoting the health and wellness of their communities. Each year, they award prizes to such innovators, and we are so honoured that this year we took home the award for Best Taste!
Our prize-winning product, Uncrouton™, is a gluten-free vegan salad topping made with crunchy clusters of protein-packed seeds, roasted nuts, and other delicious superfoods! Our Vegan Caesar flavour is made with savoury nutritional yeast, which delivers a delightful touch of cheesiness that is also an amazing source of vitamins and minerals. In fact, nutritional yeast contains all nine essential amino acids, making it a complete protein comparable to the nutritional value in animal byproducts. (Source) Our Garlic & Herb Uncrouton™ is made with apple cider vinegar, an ingredient famed for its health benefits. Like all our products, Uncroutons™ are made for pure tastiness, and do not contain any artificial colours, artificial flavours, or preservatives.
Uncroutons™ are not only high in protein, they are Keto Certified by the Paleo Foundation! Each 28 g portion contains 6 g of plant-based protein, with healthy fats from nuts and seeds, making it a nutritious and delicious keto-friendly product.
Tasty, healthy, but also versatile, Uncroutons™ can replace traditional croutons wherever they are usually used. They can also be ground up and used as a breadcrumb substitute. Or simply as a delicious standalone snack! Of course you can also use them traditionally, in salads, like in this Vegan Caesar Kale Salad, or in soups, like in this Celery Root and Leek Soup, or in edamame bowls or tofu dishes - just to name a few!
