47th Street Foods Creates Healthier Options for Burritos

Waukon, IA - by Raquel Mlabassati, Associate Feature Editor…Kosher Burritos, like many other popular gourmet and themed foods is no longer a novelty but a kosher burrito that claims to be healthier is.  47th Street Foods (www.47thstreetpizza.com), a natural kosher food manufacturer in Waukon, IA recently announced that they were introducing a natural burrito with no artificial additives or preservatives and are hormone free. A burrito is a type of Mexican and Tex-Mex food, consisting of a wheat flour tortilla wrapped or folded into a cylindrical shape to completely enclose the filling. Their seven and eight ounce microwavable burritos come in several varieties: Black Bean, Brown Rice & Cheese; Tex-Mex Black Bean, Brown Rice & Cheese and Lemonito with Pico de Gallo.  All varieties include 47th Street’s own award winning artisan cheeses, handcrafted by 47th Street at their Wisconsin farm. Kosher certified (Cholov Yisroel) by Star K Certification based in Baltimore, the burritos are now available in supermarkets, independents stores and natural groceries throughout the country.

In addition to the burritos, 47th Street Foods manufactures all natural frozen pizza and chili. Yosef Abrams, 47th Street’s Artisan Cheesemaker explains that most of the company’s products come about as a result of customer support. That is how the new, pepperoni style, “Foni Roni” Pizza came about. It’s their own meatless meat substitute that is soy and tofu free and definitely one of the first of its kind in the kosher world. What’s next on the horizon? Gluten free pasta.
