Crepes are a creative, low-calorie alternative to other breads, rolls and wraps

Paterson, New Jersey – Oct. 11, 2016 – Kontos Foods, Inc. (www.kontos.com), a U.S.-based manufacturer and distributor of traditional Greek and Mediterranean foods, today announced that the company will be highlighting its All-Natural, French-Style Crepes, in both traditional and savory flavors, as well as nearly its entire range of offerings, including its Pita Bread, Flatbread and Fillo products, at the SIAL Paris International Food & Beverage Tradeshow, being held between Oct. 16-20 at the Parc des Expositions de Paris-Nord Villepinte, Paris. The company’s booth is #4M082.

Kontos crepes, available for retail stores and foodservice establishments, are significantly lower in calories, fat, carbohydrates and sodium versus other breads and wraps. They can be used to create delicious, low-carb sandwiches, appetizers, meals and desserts. Kontos calls its crepe the “Lite, Elegant Skinny Wrap™” because it is a delicious replacement for a higher-calorie sandwich wrap, while at the same time providing the basis for elegant French-style dinners and desserts.

“We try to cater to everyone and our All-Natural, French Style crepes offer consumers a delicious alternative to standard wraps, tortillas, bread, rolls or bagels. With less than half the carbs of a plain wrap, and one-third the carbs of a hoagie roll, our Crepes offer a healthier option to create a delicious sandwich wrap, an impressive European-style meal, delicate hors d’oeuvres or unique desserts,” said Steve Kontos, vice president of Kontos Foods.
“Thanks to innovative products, such as our crepes, Kontos has experienced steady international growth over the last 2-3 years,” he added. “Involvement in tradeshows such as SIAL has certainly helped us foster strong relationships with vendors from all over the world.”

Visitors of Kontos Foods’ booth will also see over 50 varieties of Flatbreads, Fillo pastry products such as Baklava and Nut Rolls, and ready-made Fillo dough for home baking. Flatbreads on display will include Kontos Foods’ top-selling Pocket-Less Pita®, the traditional pita of the Eastern Mediterranean; Greek Lifestyle Flatbread, which has 2x Protein, half the Carbohydrates, and less Calories and Sugar than other Flatbreads; and mini Cocktail Flatbreads for snacks and appetizers. Show attendees will also be able to check out Kontos’ Panini breads, Indian and Asian Nans, Lavash bread, and more.

Kontos Foods, whose founder pioneered the mass production and commercialization of Fillo dough in North America several decades ago, will exhibit Fillo of varying thicknesses for Foodservice and home baking. Also on display will be Kataifi dough, finely spun strands of dough that add flair to seafood and dessert dishes. Booth visitors will be able to sample several of the company’s Flatbreads and ready-made Baklava and Nut Roll pastries.

SIAL Paris bills itself as the world’s largest food innovation exhibition; some 7,000 companies from more than 105 countries will be presenting their products to 155,000 retail and foodservice professionals from 194 countries. The show is targeted at retail, food service and food processing companies.
