Tia Lupita, a Mexican food brand, has announced the launch of an upcycled tortilla, through a partnership with Renewal Mill, expanding its range of grain-free cactus tortillas.
Based in California, Renewal Mill is a producer of organic okara flour, a grain-free flour extract from the leftovers of soya milk processing.
With 45 calories, 6 grams of net carbs, and 2 grams of fibre per serving, the tortillas will be available in a pack of 10 retailing at $8.99.
Hector Saldivar, CEO of Tia Lupita, said: “This generation of eaters is demanding better: better nutrition, better transparency and better accountability from the brands they buy. By partnering with Renewal Mill, we are able to deliver on those demands”.
“This partnership showcases the versatility of okara flour. It can play in every category of the store, adding environmental, functional and nutritional benefits to our partners, while allowing them to tap into a new story that resonates with the eco-conscious audiences they are trying to reach”, added Claire Schlemme, CEO of Renewal Mill.
