KUALA LUMPUR: A recent 2023 survey by GlobalData revealed that 59 per cent of Malaysians are keen to try plant-based foods for its health benefits, while nearly half are motivated by the environmental benefits of these more sustainable food options.

Plant-based foods generally have a much lower carbon footprint and are less intensive in water resources as compared to meat products.

In response to this growing trend towards plant-protein foods, Nestlé Malaysia Bhd has expanded its "Harvest Gourmet" product range with the launch of Puff Pastries, a new range that adds exciting, delicious and easy-to-prepare options which further confirm the company's leadership in the emerging space.

The puffs are a delectable fusion of plant-protein goodness with gourmet pastry, perfect for those looking to indulge in a savoury snack without compromising on flavour.

"Craving puff pastries but find them too much of a hassle to make, or simply cannot find the time to prepare them from scratch?

"Nestlé's Harvest Gourmet Puff Pastries are the ideal solution, especially for working parents and busy professionals on the go. They are convenient choices for teatime or an anytime

snack!" the company said.

The crispy flaky delights are available in three Asian flavours: creamy curry puff, Korean Gochujang puff and Oriental BBQ puff.

The creamy curry puff includes dairy ingredients, enriching its flavour profile for those who enjoy a touch of creaminess in their puffs.

"Made in Malaysia and certified halal, the Puff Pastries provide a good source of protein made with soya and wheat-based mince, along with selected blend of flavourful ingredients and spices, without added preservatives.

"But what makes them truly convenient, and a time-saving option is the one-step preparation, straight from the freezer to the air fryer with no defrosting required! Simply air fry the puffs at 180°C for 15 minutes to achieve flaky, crispy perfection, ready to be enjoyed," it added.

Juan Aranols, chief executive officer of Nestlé Malaysia, expressed enthusiasm for the latest addition to the Harvest Gourmet range:

"In a world where we all need to deal with the environmental and health impacts of our dietary choices, we continue to innovate to ensure that we launch products that are tasty and relevant to our consumers while playing a positive role in supporting the transition to more sustainable diets," he added.
