The Sprouting of a Vegan Business: The Story of Sunshine Burgers-Carol Debberman's story- by ecohearth
Carol Debberman and her partner, John Hiler, co-own Sunshine Burgers, a company that brings sunflower-based burgers to tables across America.
Sunshine Burgers come in six flavors. Beyond the Original veggie burger are three variations—Garden Herb, Barbecue and Southwest. And they’ve just introduced two new products—Falafel and Breakfast patties. “They all taste totally different,” observes Debberman.
The one thing they have in common is that they contain only simple, natural, wholesome ingredients. The Original-style burgers, for example, are made from just brown rice, raw sunflower seeds, carrots, herbs and sea salt.
Sunshine Burgers don’t use soy or wheat in their products, an advantage for consumers with allergies. All of the ingredients are listed on the burger boxes and all of them, notes Hiler, are ingredients you can pronounce.
“This is really simple food. It’s not high in fat; it has vegetable fat, something your body needs,” says Debberman. “It’s really easy to digest and it has a lot of nutrients.”. Read the rest of the story here by Carol Rich.
