Food News: thinkThin® Accelerates Innovation with Two New Lines of Plant Based Products

 

 

Looking to Plant Based Protein Sources Culminates in a Delicious New Line of Bars and a New Category Launch with Protein Powders

LOS ANGELES, June 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- As consumers shift towards plant based nutrition and with 36% of Americans reportedly eating a vegetarian meal at least once a week,1 thinkThin, a leader in creating nutritious, protein rich foods has announced a new range of plant based protein products spanning from high protein bars to protein powders.

"Our focus on nutrition is matched only by our passion for innovation," said Michele Kessler, CEO of thinkThin. "We estimate that plant based foods are a five billion dollar industry, and we wanted to bring to market a portfolio of products using high-quality, plant based ingredients, and still deliver the indulgent flavors our consumers expect from thinkThin."

Building on the recently launched thinkThin Protein & Superfruit bar line, which includes one vegan bar in a Lemon Cranberry Chia flavor, the following new thinkThin® products are now rolling out to retail stores nationwide:

  • Sea Salt Almond Chocolate High Protein Bar, which combines rich dark chocolate, roasted almonds and a hint of sea salt, and provides 13 grams of plant based protein and 5 grams of sugar
  • Chocolate Mint High Protein Bar, with a chocolate mint flavored center covered in rich dark chocolate, and provides 13 grams of plant based protein and 5 grams of sugar
  • Belgian Chocolate Protein & Probiotics Powder Mix, made with rich, European cocoa, containing 20 grams of plant based protein, prebiotic fiber and one billion CFUs live probiotics per serving

In addition to delivering on both elevated flavor and nutritional profiles, each of the company's new Plant Based High Protein Bars and Protein & Probiotic Powder Mixes are also crafted with no soy ingredients, and are GMO-free, gluten free, and vegan.

"Innovating in the nutrition and food space means we have to constantly evaluate ingredient and food sources. With the growing numbers of flexitarians and consumers actively incorporating plant based foods in their meals, we knew this was a space we could lean into that would complement our current product offerings. It was just a matter of understanding which combinations of plant-based sources tasted best while still delivering category leading nutritionals," added Kessler.

Select flavors will be rolling out to retail stores nationwide, including Whole Foods Market®, Kroger®, Target®, and Walmart®.  The entire thinkThin plant based product line can be purchased online. To learn more or to find a retailer near you, visit www.thinkproducts.com.

Food News: One Box At A Time: Kashi Expands Product Portfolio To Support Organic Farmland

 

 

 

Kashi announces second product made with Certified Transitional ingredients

 

SOLANA BEACH, Calif., Feb. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Kashi introduced Chewy Nut Butter Bars – the second line of products in its growing Certified Transitional portfolio – which joins Dark Cocoa Karma Shredded Wheat Biscuits, the company's best-performing cereal innovation in over five years. These deliciously chewy bars are made with real nut butters, whole grains and coconut oil, offering flavor packed, gluten-free nourishment in four tasty flavors: Almond Snickerdoodle, Chocolate Trail Mix, Salted Chocolate Chunk and Coconut Cashew Macaroon.

"We're thrilled to announce this addition to our Certified Transitional portfolio," said David Denholm, CEO at Kashi. "Chewy Nut Butter Bars represent another delicious way for consumers to join us on our mission to increase the amount of organic farmland in the US, one box at a time."

Building Bridges to the Organic Market

Despite double-digit growth in consumer demand for organic foods every year since the 1990s, organic acreage has not kept up – according to the USDA, less than one percent of US farmland is certified organic. While farmers increasingly seek to recognize the benefits of certification, converting fields from conventional farming methods to organic takes at least three years and is no small feat. During the three-year transition, farmers use organic practices but aren't paid organic prices.

Inspired to help farmers meet rising demand for organics, Kashi in 2016 partnered with leading organic certifier Quality Assurance International (QAI) to create Certified Transitional, a protocol which creates a new way for farmers to command slightly higher prices for their crops in transition during the three-year period – giving them the financial assurance needed to make the switch from conventional to organic. QAI led the development of the label, with support from agricultural suppliers, a global environmental NGO, organic experts, farmers, retailers, distributors and food brands.

QAI owns and manages the Certified Transitional protocol, which is available for any crop and brand that sources agricultural ingredients, including food and beverage, dietary supplements, cosmetics, household cleaners and textile products.

Certified Transitional Farmland More Than Doubles

In 2016, Kashi purchased the first-ever crop of Certified Transitional ingredients – hard red winter wheat – sourced from 860 acres of transitional farmland for use in Dark Cocoa Karma Shredded Wheat Biscuits. After just one year, Kashi's Certified Transitional products now are sourced from over 3,474 acres – more than quadrupling from the previous year – on their way to transitioning from conventional to organic. Today's launch of Chewy Nut Butter Bars builds on this momentum by showcasing other transitional ingredients, including almonds, dates and sorghum. In total, there now are 10 farms supplying Certified Transitional ingredients located in California, Louisiana, Kansas, Nebraska and Wyoming.

By purchasing Certified Transitional products such as Chewy Nut Butter Bars and Dark Cocoa Karma Shredded Wheat Biscuits, consumers can play a role in helping support farmers transition their land to organic, one box at a time. Each purchase contributes to a growing marketplace that recognizes the investment farmers make while transitioning to organic practices.

"As a farmer, I think of the decision to switch to organic as an equation – with dozens of variables that must be considered – such as the projected price of organic products, consumer demand, changing environmental conditions, and more," said Richard Gemperle, president at Edelweiss Nut Company, who supplied almonds for the new Chewy Nut Butter Bars. "For me, Certified Transitional changed the equation in favor of making the transition to organic, giving me a way to reap immediate economic benefits."

Moving Toward More Organics

"Kashi's first Certified Transitional product, Dark Cocoa Karma Shredded Wheat Biscuits, is our best-performing cereal innovation in over five years," said CEO David Denholm. "The addition of Chewy Nut Butter Bars to our Certified Transitional portfolio builds on this progress and supports efforts to increase organic farmland in the U.S. As demand for organics continues to grow, we hope this success will encourage other brands to explore Certified Transitional sourcing."

Kashi, along with QAI, invites anyone interested – from farmers to consumers – to learn more about Certified Transitional and participate in the program.
