Snack Spotlight: Small Batch Craft Pork Rind Brand Debuts Better-for-You Snack at Harris Teeter

 

 

Southern Recipe Small Batch Pork Rinds Expands Distribution of Its Innovative, Better-for-You Snack at First Major Grocery Chain East of the Mississippi

Lima, Ohio (May 5, 2017) – Southern Recipe Small Batch, an authentic, handcrafted, small batch pork rind snack, plans to deliver unique flavor to Harris Teeter consumers looking for a better-for-you alternative. Beginning mid-June, shoppers throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Georgia and Florida can visit their local Harris Teeter to experience this snack that has been designed specifically for today’s millennial consumer. Featuring high quality ingredients reimagined with new flavors and a manufacturing process to produce one of the nation’s first lines of authentic small batch pork rinds, Southern Recipe Small Batch is of the quality shoppers expect from Harris Teeter stores at an SRP of $3.99 for each four ounce bag.

Launching into Harris Teeter stores is Southern Recipe Small Batch’s Sea Salt & Cracked Black Pepper, Korean Kimchi BBQ, Spicy Dill and Pineapple Ancho Chile flavors. The authentic recipe for Southern Recipe Small Batch pork rinds attains the texture and genuine small batch flavor consumers crave, with a fraction of the guilt. By popping each rind in heart-healthy sunflower oil and dusting it with bold spices and flavor blends, every four ounce bag of pork rinds offers a snack with the taste of indulgence and eight grams of protein. Southern Recipe Small Batch pork rinds are gluten free, low carb and promise big taste.

“Offering Southern Recipe Small Batch in Harris Teeter allows our East Coast consumers a new way to love pork rinds,” shares Mark Singleton, VP of Marketing at Rudolph Foods. “Our craft-made take on the traditional pork rind has continued to excite consumers in the South. Now, we’re making this Southern snack more accessible with an edgy look and clean ingredients that are just naturally better for you. It’s a different kind of rind!”

Southern Recipe Small Batch’s expansion in the Eastern United States speaks to the selective consumer, those currently driving food trends. Because such shoppers as those who frequent Harris Teeter markets are keenly focused on the statement their food is making, they are constantly searching for brands that speak to their values. Foods denoted as “small batch” suggest the product is made with care, attention and skill. This ultimately puts the power back into the consumer’s hands, as it gives them a reason to trust the brand. Southern Recipe Small Batch does just this, with an innovative approach to producing the favored snack of the South, the pork rind, with intentional ingredients and processes.

About Southern Recipe Small Batch:
Southern Recipe Small Batch, a division of Southern Recipe – “The tastiest crunch in the South” – is a small batch, handcrafted brand of pork rinds.

Company Spotlight: Bulk Powders High Protein Snack Bars

 

 

  • Huge 27g protein per bar from Whey & Milk Protein
  • 3 delicious flavours, with real fruit & nut pieces
  • No low quality fillers such as Gelatin or Soya

WHAT ARE HIGH PROTEIN SNACK BARS?

High Protein Snack Bars are another BULK POWDERS™ exclusive product, providing an alternative (or addition!) to our ever popular High Protein Flapjacks.

As the name suggests, these bars are packed with protein. In fact, each bar delivers a massive 27g protein, wrapped up in a delicious, soft and doughy texture. They are a perfectly convenient snack and are the ideal way to add quality protein to your diet.

The protein content of High Protein Snack Bars is derived entirely from high quality protein sources: Whey Protein Concentrate and Milk Protein Isolate. Many similar bars are loaded with cheap sources of Gelatin  – whilst this may be great for the texture of a bar, it is an inferior protein source and is not utilised effectively by the body. To this extent it is not only important what goes in to a bar, but also what does not! BULK POWDERS™ are only interested in providing a quality product – and in our opinion that is one without ingredients such as Gelatin.

 

HOW DO HIGH PROTEIN SNACK BARS TASTE?

There are 3 unique and delicious flavours to choose from:

Chocolate Praline – a soft and fluffy chocolate praline centre, complemented with a smooth chocolate coating and real hazelnut pieces for added texture.

Strawberries & Cream – a heavenly strawberry centre, complemented with a luxurious white chocolate coating and real strawberry pieces for added flavour.

Chocolate Orange - A soft and zesty orange centre, containing freeze dried orange pieces, layered in a gorgeous dark chocolate coating.

High Protein Snack Bars are luxurious enough to satisfy a sweet tooth and almost make you feel like you are eating something a little bit naughty – when in fact you are consuming an impressive 27g protein with minimal amounts of fat and sugar. Throw out the pack of chocolate biscuits and replace them with a box of BULK POWDERS™ High Protein Snack Bars. We assure you that they will be just as satisfying, minus all the junk!

 

WHAT IS IN HIGH PROTEIN BARS™?

Milk Protein Isolate

Made from ultra-filtered skimmed milk, Milk Protein Isolate is made from 80% casein and 20% whey. This combination of both fast and slow release protein means that High Protein Snack Bars are a great addition to your diet, anytime of the day.

Whey Protein Concentrate

Our premium and best-selling Whey Protein Concentrate provides further protein content, whilst also being rich in BCAA and Glutamine – fuelling muscle growth and recovery.

Real Strawberry Pieces (Strawberries & Cream Variant)

Delicious 100% strawberry pieces that burst with flavour and provide added health and antioxidant benefits.

Roasted Hazelnut Pieces (Chocolate Praline Variant)

Real, tasty hazelnut pieces rich in monounsaturated fats as well as Vitamin E, B6 and Folate.

Freeze Dried Orange Pieces (Chocolate Orange Variant)

Real free dried orange pieces providing bursts of zesty orange flavour throughout the bar.

LactoSpore®

A high quality, superior Probiotic documented to support the immune system, digestive system and general health.

 

WHAT IS NOT IN HIGH PROTEIN SNACK BARS?

Unlike other brands and well-known protein bars, High Protein Snack Bars contain no cheap filler ingredients such as Gelatin and Soya. These are often included to bolster protein content, improve taste, enhance texture and reduce costs. When demolishing a High Protein Snack Bar, you can rest assured that the protein content is derived entirely from quality sources such as Milk and Whey. 

 

HIGH PROTEIN SNACK BARS BENEFITS

Each 85g High Protein Snack Bar gives you a massive 27g protein (*26g for Chocolate Praline). With their high protein content, only from quality sources, low fat (≤4.5g) and sugar (≤3.9g) levels, LactoSpore® Probiotic content, as well as being high in dietary fibre, BULK POWDERS™ High Protein Snack Bars have an unrivalled nutritional profile. Helping to promote both muscle growth and recovery, whilst also supporting the immune system and digestive function, these bars are the perfect snack for anytime of the day.

Whether it's after a workout or before bed – High Protein Snack Bars deliver an instant, yet sustained supply of premium protein, amino acids and nutrients.

 

About Bulk Powders

BULK POWDERS™ began trading exclusively online in 2005. Since then the company has grown from a small unit in a self-storage facility to a state of the art 16,000 sq ft. warehouse and manufacturing facility based in Colchester, Essex. We’re certainly not a company that stands still, and as part of our mission we are striving to ensure that we offer the most comprehensive range of health and performance nutrition supplements available – at the lowest prices and the highest quality!

Product Spotlight: Oatein Flapjacks

 

 

Why Flapjacks?

When we looked at launching Oatein, we didn’t want to be another brand of “Protein Bar” wrapped in flavoured substitutes, we wanted to lead from the front and provide well-made and delicious products that leave you feeling content, refreshed and ready for whatever the day throws at you. Our Baker who has over 15 years of expertise in the Sports Nutrition field developed the Oatein bar in the Kitchen, not in a lab!

We decided on an Oat based recipe to give it that real home baked feel, something you would be proud of making yourself. We use naturally occurring protein sources, rather than loading them with powders and substitutes, meaning that your bars taste natural, rather than a chalky or powdery tasting snack.

Oatein comes in a range of six mouthwatering flavours, specifically chosen to reflect our natural roots.

flavour

Each Oatein bar is packed with 19g of Protein to help repair Muscle Tissue and slow release Carbs to help sustain energy levels throughout the day.

The Science behind Oatein

Protein is an essential component for optimal recovery and muscle repair. In today’s day and age , ensuring that adequate amounts of Protein are consumed on a daily basis which is becoming increasing difficult given the demands of daily life in the 21st Century. It was with this in mind that we wanted to create a Product that was tailored to the busy modern Lifestyle and a quick and convenient way to meet your daily Protein intake.

Unlike other Flapjacks currently on the market, the Oatein Bar is low in Saturated Fat and can be consumed in the knowledge that you are eating a natural and healthy snack which can alleviate any sweet cravings without reaching for the sweet drawer! The natural Oats in the Oatein Bar, which are the main Carbohydrate source, help maintain blood sugar levels which can hinder your performance at work, in the gym, or even on the Golf course!

Oats and Protein combined helps replenish depleted energy levels and repair muscle tissue after any form of physical activity.

We specifically designed Oatein Bar’s Macro’s to be an ideal option as a great tasting meal addition, a meal alternative or quite simply that pre or post workout snack for any active individual.

 

 

About Oatein

The Oatein Flapjack Bar was developed over a 9 month time period using our knowledge and experience of over 20 years in the Sports Nutrition Industry. Our Baker has produced innovative fitness orientated fitness supplements for many of the industries leading brands and was given the remit to produce something new, something fresh that the sports nutrition market had not seen before. Combining both of our knowledge, we developed the Oatein Flapjack Bar with 6 mouth-watering flavours tailored for the active and healthy lifestyle. Read More

Snack Spotlight: Lizi’s High Protein Granola

 

 

I have developed this product for the entire family, not just the body builders. Protein is necessary for growing youngsters as well as the elderly who need to protect themselves from muscle loss. A single 50g serving will give you 27% of your daily protein needs, but it still has a the top-quality taste and texture which made lizi’s famous. I have only used vegetable protein, mainly from GM-free soya so that like all my granolas this is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
