La Quercia Introduces Humanely-Raised Protein Snacks

La Quercia Introduces Humanely-Raised Protein Snacks


NORWALK, IA
Monday, April 15th, 2019

Humanely-raised protein pioneers and cured meat masters La Quercia are introducing a new line of snackable salami sticks. Rustix by La Quercia will offer protein-filled snack sticks made from humanely-raised pork, hand-crafted in Iowa by celebrated artisans of American charcuterie.

Herb Eckhouse, Co-Founder, La Quercia“Sebastian Beumer, our Production Lead, made some of these for fun. I saw them in the plant and pressed him to perfect them—and he did,” said LaQuercia Founder Herb Eckhouse, in a press release. “We are excited to offer a new snack made with very high quality ingredients that offers protein-hungry people something delicious from a formerly undervalued cut of meat. Good quality meat with simple ingredients and light curing have made for a snack we reach for again and again.”

Rustix by La Quercia are available in 2 oz. (SRP $5.99) and are currently available for national distribution

Rustix salami sticks are available in two varieties: Spicy and Smoky. Rustix are made with meat from the pork shank—a lean cut that La Quercia does not use in its prosciutto making.

With 12 grams of protein per serving, Rustix is an ideal on-the-go snack to be enjoyed outdoors, traveling, or just reaching for an easy and healthful snack at the end of a long work day.

Rustix by La Quercia are available in 2 oz. (SRP $5.99) and are currently available for national distribution.

The line was, the company noted in its press release, born out of the desire to create a delicious snack stick from antibiotic-free pork that’s been humanely raised on American family farms. The Rustix line embodies the same commitment to quality food, sustainability, and developing La Quercia’s own circular economy, that its more traditional gourmet products do.

Rustix salami sticks are available in both Spicy and Smoky varieties

Rustix joins La Quercia’s extensive line of charcuterie, available in select supermarkets, specialty stores, and on restaurant menus from coast to coast.
