Low-fat bean burrito beats out competition, rivals taste profile of fast-food burritos

Cedarlane® Natural Foods, Inc. has once again garnered praise for great taste for one of its products. Cedarlane’s Low Fat Beans, Rice & Cheese Style Burrito was recently named a 2011 Grand Prize Winner by Cooking Light Magazine in their search for the tastiest frozen burritos in supermarkets.

The magazine noted that Cedarlane’s “…zesty spices, perfectly cooked beans and soft, chewy flour tortilla…rivals any fast-food competitors (with about half the sodium).” In addition to award-winning taste and lower sodium, Cedarlane’s frozen Beans, Rice & Cheese Burrito also serves up fewer calories and lower fat and cholesterol than three competing frozen grocery store brands. Made with organic ingredients, the vegetarian burrito offers 13 grams of protein, 260 calories, no cholesterol, and only one gram of fat.

One of many tasty, healthy, quick-to-fix meals from Cedarlane, the vegetarian burrito is not the first Cedarlane product to earn recognition. Cedarlane’s Chicken Fajita Burrito was recognized as “Best Chicken Burrito” by TV personality and best-selling cookbook author Rachael Ray. In addition, in 2009, Cedarlane was recognized as the “Best Natural Frozen Entrees” product line by the World Taste Championship, presented by the American Masters of Taste.

Cedarlane foods are carried by natural foods stores and supermarkets throughout the U.S. and Canada, including Costco. The company offers a variety of vegetarian frozen foods, chicken entrées and burritos, egg white omelettes and breakfast burritos.
