The new recipe is better on all fronts – from the taste to the texture, to the aroma. With a firmer grind and beefier chew, the mouthwatering new recipe is also more nutritious, compared to the previous recipe, as the new recipe has 40% less saturated fat, 30% less sodium, a higher quality protein and it is made without gluten (gluten-free certification still pending).
