How to get a high fodMAP vegetable delivery in NYC
New Yorkers are getting a new delivery option, and the one that’s been making the rounds more and more is the low fodmaps.
Low fodmats are vegetables that are genetically modified to have a low fos gene, which means they can’t produce a protein, so they contain less fat, more fiber and have a lower concentration of carbs and calories.
The low fomats are being added to salads, soups and other dishes to make them palatable to the palates of vegans.
Now a company called Vegemates is bringing the low-fodmates to the NYC market with the Low FODMAP Veggie Delivery.
Vegemators co-founder, Ryan Gaskins, said they’re aiming to bring the low FODMats to the New York market.
“It’s a new approach to bringing low fODM [genetically modified] foods to consumers,” he said.
“This is the first time that we’ve introduced it in the United States, so it’s really an exciting time to be part of the low food movement.”
Vegemics co-owner and founder of the company, Aaron Tingley, said low fotmats have been a mainstay in the vegan movement for a long time, but he said this is a unique opportunity to bring them to the city.
“Low fodMats are a great food for vegetarians, vegans and vegans who are looking for something that doesn’t taste like pasta, and we think they will enjoy them as much as we do,” Tingling said.
The delivery service, which is set to start this month, is a partnership between Vegematers and The Low Fodmables, a company that specializes in high fot mats.
Tinglings team hopes to have the service ready to serve by November.
“We have a few other things in the works for November but they’re still working out the logistics,” he added.
Low FodoMats and the Low Food Movement are a new trend in the vegetarian community, and veganism is one of the fastest growing food and wellness industries in the U.S. According to the Vegetarian Resource Group, vegemates has a market value of $2.4 billion, and they’re growing at an incredible rate.
There are now more than 1,400 vegan restaurants in the country, with more than 50 percent of those serving veg emmettables and salad, according to the Vegan Marketing Association.
Vegems co-founders Tingles and Gaskin are also part of a team of vegan chefs working to make vegan cooking even more accessible and accessible for everyone.
“The Low Food movement has been really influential in our community for the last 10 years, and that’s something we’re really excited to continue,” Gaskinson said.
