Earthfresh Farms Announces New Lower GR Potato Returns to Ontario Grocery Stores for Extended Season

EarthFresh is bringing its lower glycemic response (GR) Carisma potato back to Ontario grocery retailers for an extended season. Available from April to November 2017, the Carisma - which was met by strong consumer demand when it first became available to Canadians in limited quantities last September - offers health-conscious food lovers and diabetics more choice in the produce aisles. Farmed from traditional seed and without the use of biotechnology, the non-GMO Carisma is a new and unique spud. Grown specifically to help prevent the rapid spike in blood sugar that normally comes from eating carbohydrate-rich foods, Carisma is a desirable choice for those seeking to control blood sugar levels, including people with (or at risk of) diabetes, athletes, and those looking to lose or control body weight. Having sold out in just six weeks, Carisma's entry into the Ontario produce market last fall was met with an overwhelmingly positive response - indicating a strong desire for new food innovations and greater choice in everyday nutrition among consumers. To meet the high demand this year, EarthFresh has moved its growing operations to the Southern U.S., where optimal weather conditions allow for an extended growing season and, in return, more produce on shelves for a longer period. Carisma will now be available to Ontario shoppers at Metro, Sobeys, Longo's, Fortinos, Whole Foods Market, and Farm Boy from April - November, 2017. (approx. $6.99/5 lb. bag). Carisma is a flavourful, versatile potato with an exceptionally creamy, smooth, melt-in-your-mouth texture which can be eaten boiled, mashed or baked. Ideal for appetizers, soups, cold salads, warm sides and even baked fries and chips - the new potato varietal is an easy addition to a healthy, well-balanced diet.
