MONTREAL, June 11 /CNW Telbec/ - Add some variety to your summer menu
with Fontaine Santé, which is expanding its product line with three fresh and
delicious new salads. Perfect for the hot days of summer and for people who
want to make healthy food choices, these new salads feature a bold blend of
tasty and nutritious ingredients.
Can't decide between sweet and savoury? Why not have both, with the
three-lentil and cranberry salad! Not only does the list of health virtues of
dried cranberries grow longer every day, these little gems also add a hint of
sweetness that complements savoury lentils, for a taste that will delight fans
of sweet and salty dishes.
Get your fill of whole grains with the unique bulgur and roasted onion
salad. Although little known in the West, bulgur is a widely used grain in
Middle Eastern cooking. Bulgur definitely deserves a place in your diet, since
Canada's Food Guide(1) gives star billing to grain products. The delicious,
lightly spiced combination of bulgur and roasted onion is a delectable way to
add fibre to your diet.
Discriminating palates will be thrilled with the chick pea and vegetable
salad. This refreshing salad, made with healthy ingredients such as legumes,
tomatoes, peppers and crisp miniature corn is an ideal side dish for your
favourite grilled meats.
Each of these delicious recipes was developed by a team of R&D
professionals at Fontaine Santé. To ensure that its customers eat healthy, the
team selects top-quality ingredients and develops recipes that are free of
preservatives, artificial colour and hydrogenated fats.
A natural change
In addition to launching these delicious new salads, Fontaine Santé has
switched to new, environmentally friendly packaging. The entire Fontaine Santé
product line now comes in innovative containers produced with injection
technology and in-mold labelling. Widely used in Europe since the 1980s and
introduced in Quebec in the early 2000s, this process consists of the seamless
fusion by injection of a plastic label with the packaging and makes Fontaine
Santé's containers 100% recyclable.
The new containers will also make it easier for shoppers to identify
their favourite Fontaine Santé products, since each product family has its own
- Red: appetizers and hors d'oeuvres
- Yellow: Mediterranean salads
- Green: rice and legume salads
- Blue: pasta salads
The new Fontaine Santé products are now available in the refrigerated
section of Quebec's main supermarket chains and most natural food stores. For
