Why Protein Snacks are of Growing Importance

As we gain knowledge about what we’re eating, protein is becoming an increasingly important nutritional factor in our decisions.  From providing energy, to building and repairing muscle, protein is an essential part of a full and balanced diet.  Recent research from Mintel  suggests that, for consumers, protein from non-animal sources is in growing demand. For those of us who are vegetarian, gluten intolerant, or just health-conscious, satiating, low fat legumes are an ideal ingredient base.

Our protein snacks = 5 grams in a 120 calorie serving

Protein’s benefit of satisfying hunger longer plays a major role in its high demand among snack foods.   According to the same Mintel research, 87% of us say satiety is an important factor when choosing a product.  With 5 grams of protein in a 120 calorie serving of 15 crackers, our Mediterranean Snacks Lentil Crackers offer the satiety we desire as well as the pleasing crunch and satisfaction of a substantial portion size.  They also contain no trans fats, are all natural with no preservatives, gluten-free certified, and non-GMO verified. Paired with hummus for example, a serving of Lentil Crackers can conveniently provide an easy nourishing mini meal.

Since the body does not store protein, it is essential to take in sufficient amounts through food. The importance of eating enough protein is paramount to maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle.

Our vision is to enable you to ‘Live Snactive™,’ which means offering choices for healthy, nutritious snacking, so you can feel good about snacking, while leading an active lifestyle.
