(WVLT/CNN) - Certain Chipotle consumers will be able to test a new type of rice soon. CNN reported that the chain is testing out cauliflower rice. The new product will be available in 55 restaurants in Denver and Wisconsin for a limited time.

The new product will be served beginning Wednesday and will be cilantro-lime flavored.

Chipotle said Monday that the new item has been one of its most demanded foods from consumers. It could be influenced by health-conscious eaters. CNN reported that a serving of cauliflower rice has 4 net carbs--a fraction of carbs in a cup of white or brown rice.

The chain’s CEO told consumers not to get their hopes up about a meat alternative, however, as CEO Brian Niccol previously said those types of foods are too processed and don’t align with the company’s mission of serving “whole foods.”
