This menu item was developed to “set the table” for Dunkin’ to offer healthier items, says Mike Brazis, director of culinary innovation for the chain. Protein is the power behind the sandwich, with a full 24 grams in each serving, thanks to a veggie egg white omelet layered with a turkey sausage patty and cheese. The carrier also moves in a healthier direction. Dunkin’ worked with a supplier to develop a thinner, less bulky multigrain sandwich round. It’s baked with whole wheat flour, quinoa and several types of seeds: chia, sunflower, pumpkin and flax. And at 370 calories, the sandwich appeals to dieters as well as protein seekers. Half of consumers ages 18-34 say health is very important when deciding where to order a sandwich, finds Technomic.
