Low-Fat Hummus by Eat Well Enjoy Life

Eat Well Enjoy Life Challenges the Leading Hummus Brand

Eat Well Enjoy Life Challenges the Leading Market Brand Hummus

Low-Fat Hummus by Eat Well Enjoy Life debuts at The Winter Fancy Food Show. Smooth and creamy yet with exceptional rich traditional hummus flavor, the new hummus contains Greek Yogurt making it lower in fat and calories than other leading hummus brands.

SAN FRANCISCO – January 20, 2013  Low-Fat Hummus by Eat Well Enjoy Life debuts! EWEL hummus innovation continues to challenge the market by creating a low fat hummus that delivers exceptional taste. Traditionally most “low fat” versions of hummus reduce the tahini and oil (fat, flavor and texture elements) and substitute more water and beans, resulting in a lower fat hummus but with little to no flavor and a greatly reduced smooth, creamy texture. EWEL looked at many different ways to overcome this and finally found that by adding Greek Yogurt they achieved everything in terms of superior nutrition, texture and taste.

This “happy accident” resulted in a better whole flavor sensory experience by delivering a truly rich, creamy and smooth texture not typically found in hummus let alone a “low fat” product.

A two-tablespoon serving is just 50 calories, with only 2.5 g of fat and no saturated fat. Weight Watchers values it a 1 on its PointsPlus system, with the leading national brand in this category given a 2. With half the fat and a third fewer calories than the leading national brand, EWEL is ushering in a new category of low fat hummus.

“We are thrilled with the feedback from the market especially on the superior flavor, mouth-feel and smooth texture of our low-fat hummus,”

“There is no other hummus on the market today that can claim such exceptional taste and texture with this level of nutrition.”

Bob Ferraro, VP of Sales for Eat Well Enjoy Life

For retailers and consumers, EWEL’s new hummus line also represents the marriage of two of today’s hottest food categories – Hummus and Greek Yogurt – both healthy foods loaded with nutritional benefits. Now hummus lovers everywhere can enjoy the light refreshing taste and creamy texture of a “light” traditional hummus with delicious gourmet toppings.

Joining Eat Well Enjoy Life’s already popular “green” line of unique non-chick pea bean hummus are five new and exciting Greek Yogurt traditional hummus flavors in three sizes (10 oz. 16 oz. and 32 oz.):

  • Classic Hummus with Greek Yogurt
  • Roasted Red Pepper Hummus with Greek Yogurt
  • Roasted Garlic Hummus with Greek Yogurt
