100% vegan, gluten-free baking flour with 4x the fiber and 25% more protein than top competitor brand
SAN FRANCISCO, CA – January 15, 2020 – Leading upcycled ingredients company, Renewal Mill, will formally debut its 1-to-1 gluten-free baking flour at this year’s Winter Fancy Food Show (Booth #3339). The 1-to-1 blend features Renewal Mill’s flagship ingredient, okara flour, and has 25% more protein and more than 4x the fiber of the leading gluten-free cup-for-cup blends.
Okara, a traditional East Asian superfood made from the soybean pulp leftover from soymilk production, is the hero of this new pantry staple. Naturally high in fiber, protein, and calcium, okara is more nutritionally robust than other popular gluten-free ingredients, like corn starch or potato starch. Its neutral flavor and color are also unique differentiators in the upcycled and alternative flour space.
“We kept hearing from consumers that they were dissatisfied with their current gluten-free baking options. Other blends were either too beany, not 100% plant-based, or nutritionally lacking. Renewal Mill saw an opportunity to meet these needs, while also introducing a climate-friendly, sustainable ingredient to consumers,” said Claire Schlemme, Co-founder and CEO of Renewal Mill.
The 1-to-1 Baking Flour is already on shelves at limited retail partners, including both Berkeley Bowl Markets in the East Bay and Farm Fresh to You’s brick-and-mortar location in the San Francisco Ferry Building. Consumers can also purchase the product online through Renewal Mill (www.renewalmill.com), Amazon, or other e-commerce partners like Vegan Essentials.
Renewal Mill also plans to supply the 1-to-1 gluten-free baking flour for food service outlets, and is already working on recipe development with food service chefs at San Francisco’s top tech companies. Visit our booth to learn more about switching out your old gluten-free flour for ours!
