Food Spotlight: NurturMe Launches First Ancient Grain Cookies with Probiotics for Kids

 

 

 

New organic, gluten-free line of cookies combines four ancient grains and immune-boosting probiotics

AUSTIN, Texas, April 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- NurturMe, the Tummy Friendly Brand™ known for its innovative quinoa baby food and toddler snacks, today unveiled the first and only organic ancient grain-based cookies with probiotics. Free from gluten, dairy, soy and egg, NurturMe Ancient Grain Cookies combine four nutrient-packed ancient grains with a daily dose of GanedenBC30® probiotics to support digestive health and immune health in little ones.

NurturMe shook up the baby food aisle when they introduced the first-ever infant cereals and toddler snacks made from pure organic quinoa, which is naturally gentle, hypoallergenic and easy to digest. Today the company is taking its approach to the next level by becoming the first and only baby and toddler food brand dedicated to protecting little tummies. Starting this spring, NurturMe is removing common allergens that can upset sensitive bellies from its full family of organic meals and snacks – including ZERO gluten, dairy, soy and egg – and adding non-GMO, vegan probiotics to its ancient grain-based lines.

"As moms, we understand how stressful feeding can be," says Caroline Freedman, NurturMe's CEO and co-founder. "Whether it's special dietary needs or simply picky eaters, we're taking our naturally gentle approach a significant step further to help take the worry out of mealtime. From our healthy new cookies, which parents can actually feel good about, to our 'free from' products with the added benefits of probiotics – we're leading the charge toward overall nutritional and digestive health in little ones."

Did you know around 70% of the immune system is in the gut? It's no wonder awareness of probiotics as an important player in overall health is on the rise. According to a recent national study*, 70 percent of Americans relate the term to a health benefit, and 69 percent of parents said they would pay more for products containing probiotics.

To support immune and digestive health, NurturMe has partnered with Ganeden – the leading and trusted probiotics company – to add a daily dose of probiotics to its ancient grain-based lines. Just one serving of NurturMe's new Ancient Grain Cookies, Organic Quinoa Baby Cereals or 100% Quinoa Squares delivers more immune-boosting benefits than 10 cups of probiotic yogurt.

NurturMe's new cookies combine quinoa, amaranth, millet and sorghum to deliver a complete and balanced protein with all essential amino acids and immune-boosting antioxidants.  They come in three flavors – Cocoa, Honey and Maple + Cinnamon – and are launching online and in stories (MSRP $3.99) in April, including in Babies"R"Us stores nationwide.

For more information about GanedenBC30 (Bacillus coagulans GBI-30, 6086), Ganeden's patented, FDA GRAS, non-GMO, highly stable probiotic ingredient that can be found in more than 750 leading products around the world, visit GanedenProbiotics.com.

Supplement Spotlight: High DHA+EPA Omega-3 Supplement for Kids & Adults

 

Anlit helps kids to get more Omega-3 the fun and tasty way

Anlit, Ltd., launches a high DHA+EPA omega-3 supplement in a single, fish-shaped chew for children and adults. Anlit will present this supplement and other functional gummies and chews at Vitafoods Europe-FPE, May 9-11, 2017, in Geneva.

Innova Market Insights reports that the supplements category continues to dominate the cognitive health space, based on greater than 230% growth in new supplements carrying this claim during 2011 through 2015. Cognitive health new product development (NPD) targets all of life's different stages, and statistics show that the main segment for growth in this category is in products for babies and toddlers. In 2015, the share of launches with a brain health claim rose to 17% in Europe, and 23% globally. Cognitive health products often feature omega-3 fatty acids, but sometimes include iron. The fastest growing ingredients are omega-3 fatty acids and B vitamins, when comparing 2011 and 2015 statistics.

Due to omega-3's organoleptic characteristics, there is a huge gap between omega-3 supplements and functional foods containing omega-3. Few products can close this "flavor gap." "Our new omega-3 chew supplement fills the gap by offering a tasty omega-3 supplement," explains Shai Karlinski, VP of sales and marketing for Anlit. "Many kids and adults dislike the unpleasant smell and taste of the traditional omega-3 fish oil supplements, such as soft gels, oil, syrups, etc. The new product offers a friendly and tasty alternative, with no unpleasant aftertaste."

Anlit's "Kidi Bites" omega-3 supplement is a fun, chocolate-flavoured, fish-shaped single-serving chew containing a high concentration of DHA and EPA (90mg EPA, 60mg DHA), for a total of 150mg omega-3 fatty acids per single unit. "Consumers want to eat candies without any guilt, and kids simply enjoy eating sweet treats that are not perceived as 'healthy'," says Karlinski. "Our mission is to provide kids and parents the complete package: a tasty treat with a beneficial health claim value."

Anlit's R&D team faced two main challenges in developing the new chew: fish oil taste and aroma, as well as creating a concentrated omega-3 product. They developed a unique delivery system that can mask the fishy taste and odor, and provide an excellent candy taste with a texture similar to milk chocolate. "We specialize in creating supplements focused on children's taste and texture preferences, while providing essential health benefits," notes Karlinski. "The delicious chewy matrix, with a chocolate-like flavour and texture, helps overcome children's reluctance to taking nutritional supplements."

The daily recommended dose of omega-3 bites is: one to two 5g fish-shaped chews. The product is produced under GMP, ISO, ISSC and kosher conditions. They're trans-fat free, made from simple, natural ingredients, and contain no preservatives or artificial colouring. Individual units are packed in sealed blister packs for complete safety and convenience.

Anlit Ltd. is a subsidiary of Maabarot Products, Israel, a public company traded on the TASE. The company continues to strengthen its competitive lead through cutting-edge advancements and the creation of high-quality products. Anlit is an innovative manufacturer of a broad range of dietary supplements developed for children and adult. Anlit products are gluten-free and nut-free. All products are GMP, FSSC, ISO 9001:2000 and HACCP compliant, as well as kosher and halal certified.

About the company

We started innocent in 1999 after selling our smoothies at a music festival. We put up a big sign asking people if they thought we should give up our jobs to make smoothies, and put a bin saying 'Yes' and a bin saying 'No" in front of the stall. Then we got people to vote with their empties. At the end of the weekend, the 'Yes' bin was full, so we resigned from our jobs the next day and got cracking.

Since then we've started making coconut water, juice and kids' stuff, in our quest to make natural, delicious, healthy drinks that help people live well and die old.
