The World’s First Pea-Based Edible Stock Sachets
You heard it here first: peas are the new plastic. We’re so proud of this brand new invention, created in partnership with the natural packaging experts at Xampla.
Say hello to the world’s first edible stock sachets made from peas, a zero-waste alternative to the plastic sachets that carry our vegetable stock powder. The sachet is made by engineering and drying pea protein into sheets that have all the same super powers as plastic, with the ability to protect food, preserving flavour and shelf life.
Unlike a normal plastic sachet, you don’t get rid of the packaging when you cook with this stock cube – simply pop the entire thing into the pot, and it will dissolve as you cook it. It’s completely edible and flavourless, as well as being vegan and gluten free, making it perfect to stir into stews and sauces.
So after all the hard work, it’s time to test it out! If you’ve ordered our Indian Spiced Carrot & Lentil Soup in your Gousto box this week, you will have had the opportunity to opt in for one of these edible stock sachets. Thank you to everyone who opted in – your feedback will help us get this innovation just right
This is all part of our ongoing work to make all our packaging recyclable, reusable or compostable, and these sachets are another step towards meeting our goal.
