Is This The New Cauliflower?

Okra is not one of the top 10 vegetables in Canada, but Bert’s Foods is hoping to change that with the launch of Oh My Okra. This super crispy snack has just three ingredients – okra, non-hydrogenated canola oil and sea salt. Whole okra pods are vacuum-fried below 180°F to retain nutrients, absorb less oil and prevent the formation of acrylamide. The result, a salty snack that’s high in fibre and low in sodium. Bertsfoods.com


Side note: Vineland Research is adapting world crops like okra for Canadian growing conditions to meet increasing demand.
