Légumaises®:  healthy alternatives to classic sauces! Discover their benefits.

Healthy and full of vitamins, the legumaises® are a mix of vegetables and condiments. This word does not exist in the dictionary and yet it represents an ingredient that is more and more used and appreciated in sandwiches and “healthy” restaurants, at the expense of classic sauces!

Légumaises®: in sandwiches, burgers, salads and cooked dishes

The goal of the Legumaises® is to provide a healthy and low-fat solution to meals of consumers. Sandwiches, raw salads and starchy salads are the most concerned meals with this alternative! For example, they can be found as sauces in chicken sandwiches, shrimps, falafels or in salads with ingredients such as bulgur, lentils, chickpeas, wheat mixed with crudités such as tomato, onion and raw salad!

But that’s not all ! Legumaises® are also popular in cooked dishes such as chicken, fish, rice and other starchy dishes and give them a healthy and tasty flavor. Their main benefits ? Their flavor and their “ready to use” advantage.

A healthy alternative containing little fat

Legumaises® are prepared with vegetables rich in vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants and are created through mixtures of flavors such as carrot and ginger, tomato and basil, tomato and almonds, celery and yellow curry or red curry coconut. Given the low fat content, Legumaise® is a kind of healthy “sauce” that allows you to eat with taste and balance at the opposite of a traditional sauce. Indeed, it contains only between 10 and 15% of fat while a classic sauce can contain up to 85% of fat. In addition, the vitamins and minerals they contain are necessary and beneficial to our health. For example, in a carrot-based legumaise®, you can find elements such as carotenoid that contribute to good mental health and reduce cardiovascular risks! In this sense, each vegetable and its condiments will bring their lots of benefits to our body!

Natural preparations: preservatives-free, gluten-free, no flavor enhancer and no added sugars

Varied and international flavors
