Banza Mac & Cheese

Chickpea-based pasta brand Banza is bringing new products exclusively to Whole Foods Market. The brand will debut three new items from their mac & cheese line, which Banza says has doubled in sales in the last year alone.

Last month, a new pasta shape from Banza, Cascatelli, also made its exclusive debut at Whole Foods. Banza pastas are made from chickpeas instead of wheat, making for a healthier plant-based alternative with higher protein and fiber and fewer carbs.

The three new items are as follows, described by Banza:

  • Banza Microwavable Elbows & Yellow Cheddar Mac: Banza’s first-ever microwavable product has the same great taste, creamy sauce, and cheesy flavor as the boxed edition, but is made to be eaten on-the-go or when strapped for time for the ultimate convenience. Compared to leading instant mac, Banza Microwavable Mac has 1.5x the protein, 4x the fiber, and 25% fewer net carbs. The new Banza Microwavable Mac is sold in the company's first plant-based fiber cup, made of renewable resources which will break down faster than a plastic-based product.
  • Banza Plant Based White Cheddar Mac & Cheese: Similar to the Banza Plant Based Cheddar Mac & Cheese, the White Cheddar variety uses Banza’s own veggie-packed, dairy-free cheese recipe made from plants such as parsnips and potatoes. 
  • Banza Deluxe Shells Cheddar Mac & Cheese: Banza fans enjoyed the Cheddar Mac & Cheese offering so much, the company is now introducing a deluxe version with an additional serving per box, bringing more velvety, rich mac & cheese to the table.
