Mediterra adds two savory flavors to its lineup
NEW YORK — Responding to consumer requests for low sugar snacks, Mediterra, a company that features all-natural nutrition bars inspired by the Mediterranean Diet, earlier this month added two new savory flavors to its lineup, including Kale, Apple, Quinoa & Almonds and Kale, Pomegranate, Quinoa & Almonds.
“Many people are tired of sweet flavors and don’t want sugar in their food,” stated Telemaque Lavidas, founder of Mediterra. “Consumers, buyers, registered dietitians and the media have all responded with accolades to our Savory bars so we’ve created additional flavors to meet their demands. Mediterra bars are an ideal, substantive and convenient snack.”
Like Mediterra’s other savory bars, these new flavors are all natural, non-GMO, gluten-free, certified Kosher, dairy-free, vegan, low in calories and contain less than three grams of sugar. The suggested retail price is $1.99.
The new Savory bars also contain nuts, herbs, protein-rich pea crisps, and olive oil. Each Savory Bar weighs 1.23 ounces, has five grams of fiber and six grams of protein.
“With Mediterra bars you can see the healthful ingredients in the bar and you know what you’re eating,” Lavidas said. “There are no surprises, no guilt, just satisfaction.”
Latest probiotic from i-Health addresses immunity health and energy
