Embracing plant-based living isn’t just about keeping a strict vegan diet—it’s a philosophy that goes far beyond food. A plant-based lifestyle avoids all animal products (and those tested on animals) as it pertains to diet, but also with clothing, skin care, and beauty products. And while many people choose a plant-based diet for ethical reasons, others are forced into it due to allergies or intolerances. But that’s where today’s innovative brands come into play, because nowadays it doesn't have to be a struggle to continue enjoying foods like pasta, cheese, and the like. Read on to learn about a Thrive Market member favorite brand, Tolerant.
The History of Tolerant
Tolerant got its start because the founders didn’t want anyone to feel bad about ingredients they couldn’t have. Inclusiveness remains the heart of the brand’s mission today, as it works to create pasta that anyone can enjoy. To keep things simple, the brand experimented with many plant-based ingredients until it settled on legumes, which are nutritious, affordable, and most importantly, gluten-free.
Tolerant Company Mission
Tolerant is known for its single-ingredient legume pasta and championing a plant-based lifestyle for all. The company believes no one should be deprived of ingredients they love, which is why it has perfected favorite shapes infused with all the benefits legumes have to offer.
Benefits of Tolerant
Plant-based ingredients are the star of every Tolerant product. Whether you choose penne, rotini, or another favorite shape, it’s always made with a single organic ingredient like red lentils, green lentils, or chickpea flour. Legumes deliver protein and fiber, and also have a low-glycemic index, which means your meal won’t spike blood sugar.
Our legume pastas are loaded with natural goodness and deliver a healthy dose of fiber, high protein, and healthy carbohydrates. Even better, legumes have a low-glycemic index, which means a lower, slower rise in your blood sugar.
