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
  • Madagascar Vanilla Bean Protein & Probiotics Powder Mix, made with real vanilla bean and rich Madagascarvanilla flavor, 20 grams of plant based protein, prebiotic fiber and more than one billion 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.

Fort Atkinson, WI (February 28, 2017) – Staying true to its pure and simple Certified Organic, whole food recipes originally created in a farmhouse kitchen, Sunshine Burgers® is pleased to announce that it will feature its plant-based veggie burgers at The Fresh Ideas Organic Marketplace on March 9, 2017, at Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, CA. Expo West, now in its 37th year, is the world’s largest natural and organic trade show, drawing nearly 80,000 visitors from more than 70 countries.

Sunshine Burgers® will sample a new plant-based burger, Tuscan, soon to be introduced into the marketplace. Made with white bean, kale and red peppers and seasoned with fennel seed, garlic and sun dried tomatoes, the new burgers are bursting with Italian goodness. The Tuscan burger will soon join the already well-known and delicious line of Certified Organic and Non-GMO Project Verified Sunshine Burgers® products in the freezer case, which have been available in leading natural, organic and specialty food stores for more than 30 years.

Leading market research firm Mintel also identified “Power to the Plants,” as one of six top key global food trends in 2017.

“Our products have always been made with pure and simple whole food ingredients, and they are a good source of plant based protein and fiber,” says Cole Jones, General Manager of Sunshine Burger & Specialty Food Company, maker of Sunshine Burgers®. “With the introduction of Tuscan flavor we will soon offer seven different and distinctive choices for our customers – and we think once you try this new flavor, you will love it.”

Tuscan Sunshine Burgers® will soon join the ever popular Garden Herb variety, Shiitake Mushroom, Black Bean South West, Barbecue, Breakfast Hemp & Sage and Falafel, plus for bigger appetites, the Quarter Pound Original.

Drink Spotlight: Burt’s Bees Enters New Category With Plant-Based Protein Shakes

 

Personal Care Brand Now Nourishes Beauty From The Inside Out

DURHAM, N.C., Jan. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The personal care brand that has crafted natural solutions for lip and skincare for more than 30 years is now helping to nourish the body with three protein formulas made with ingredients supplied by Mother Nature herself. In January, Burt's Bees introduces Burt's Bees Plant-Based Protein Shakes -- its first foray into the functional food arena.

The line includes Daily Protein, Protein +Gut Health with Probiotics, and Protein +Healthy Radiance with Antioxidant Vitamins A, C & E.  All formulas provide 15 grams of protein per serving from five sources: pea, rice, flaxseed, sunflower seed, and oat – all selected to achieve high digestibility and a complete essential amino acid profile. The new protein shakes feature vitamins extracted from real fruits and veggies, such as spinach, shiitake mushroom and strawberry. The line is non-GMO, gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free and made without artificial sweeteners or flavors.

"Entering the functional foods space is a natural extension for us," said Jim Geikie, General Manager for Burt's Bees. "For three decades, Burt's Bees has connected people to the beauty, wisdom and power of nature. And for just as long, we've held the belief that real beauty and well-being should be nourished from the inside out. We've been nurturing skin with nature's most powerful ingredients. Now we're helping to nourish the body with them."

The brand's commitment to people and the environment accompanies its entry to the new category. Burt's Bees designed the shakes with plant-based protein, a more sustainable alternative to animal protein, requiring fewer natural resources -- land, water and fossil fuels -- for production, and helping to ensure a lower impact on the environment1.  The protein line is also made with 70 percent organic ingredients, certified by California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF), and the tubs manufactured from 100 percent postconsumer recycled HDPE and fully recyclable.

The protein line embodies much of what makes Burt's Bees personal care products so beloved. But Geikie says it's the holistic health proposition that makes their product stand out in the category.

"We've created formulas that not only enhance your daily nutrition, but also support specific areas," says Geikie. "Burt's Bees Protein +Gut Health supports digestive health as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle, and Protein +Healthy Radiance gives skin a healthy glow. Both are new benefit offerings in the category that we believe strengthen holistic beauty."

In addition to the target benefits, Protein +Gut Health and Protein +Healthy Radiance provide 4.5 servings of fruits and vegetables2 that come from a vitamin blend extract as well as one-third cup of real fruits and vegetables, including tomato, strawberry, pumpkin, sweet potato and spinach. Daily Protein offers 2 servings of fruits and vegetables3.

Sweetened with honey, monk fruit extract and Stevia leaf extract and available in vanilla or chocolate flavor, Burt's Bees Protein Shakes range from $29.99 - $39.99 and offer 16-18 servings per tub.

"We have an incredible offering and a name that people trust and believe in as nature's champion," says Geikie. "We want to build a meaningful relationship with them in the functional food space and in the authentic way Burt's Bees has always done -- delighting people with the quality of our products and our purpose as a brand."

Burt's Bees Protein Shakes are available on Burtsbees.com, Amazon.com, and at select retailers.

Burt's ­Bees® has been offering distinctive earth-friendly, natural health and beauty care products for over 30 years. From a beekeeper's backyard in Maine to the leading edge of natural, Burt's Bees knows natural solutions for beauty from the inside out and operates with The Greater Good™ top of mind.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can I mix it with juice/milk?

    We love Vega® Greens mixed with ice-cold water. But you’re welcome to try the liquid of your preference. Make it an experiment in your kitchen and let us know what you discover! While strawberry (non-dairy) milk is adored at Vega HQ, no one has fallen for vibrant green Mint Lemonade almond milk.

  • What do you mean that Vega Greens has the same amount of vitamin C and A in every serving as 1 cup of kale and 1/2 cup of spinach?

    No matter which flavor of Vega® Greens you are drinking, you are drinking the same amount of vitamin C and A as is found in 1 cup of kale and ½ cup of spinach. Using the USDA’s Food Composition Database we compared the amounts of vitamin C and A found in every serving of Vega® Greens to what you would find kale and spinach. And the amounts formulated in Vega Greens are equal for the amounts vitamin C and A in 1 cup of kale plus ½ cup of spinach. If you’re ever curious about the nutrition composition of your foods, you can use the database yourself:  https://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods

  • How much caffeine is in the Matcha Honeydew flavor?

    There is approximately 8mg caffeine per serving in the Vega® Greens Matcha Honeydew flavor. For reference, 5 oz of drip coffee has between 60-110mg of caffeine.

  • Where is the matcha sourced from?

    The matcha in Vega® Greens Matcha Honeydew is from Japan.

  • How many can I have in a day?

    Even good things should be enjoyed in moderation and we suggest you drink Vega® Greens as part of a balanced diet. If you have questions about your specific nutrition needs, it’s best to talk to your dietitian or health care practitioner.

  • Can I give this to my kids?

    We recommend speaking to your pediatrician first to determine if this product is right for your kids.

  • Is it ok to take this while I’m pregnant?

    Great question! We get asked this fairly often by many new moms and parents who want to make sure they’re doing what is best for their babies. Our recommendation is to always check with your doctor or healthcare practitioner on whether or not you personally should Vega® Greens while pregnant or breastfeeding. Your doctor has the full scope of your overall health and wellness goals so they will be a better judge in determining whether this is a time when you should be introducing a new food or supplement into your routine or continuing with your current intake.

  • Can I add it to a smoothie?

    You can add Vega® Greens to your smoothie if you desire.

About the company

No matter what better means to you, Vega shares the knowledge, nutrition, and inspiration to support your quest to thrive.

Don’t worry—better isn’t an all-or-nothing challenge. Vega’s approach to better is a little bit different: we believe the best long-term changes happen with small, incremental steps, and that better should be sustainable—in all meanings of the word. This is why we’re fans of focusing not on what you should eliminate from your diet, but on what you can add. Start by adding one plant-based meal or dish a day—a smoothie for breakfast, salad for dinner, or soup for lunch—and you’ll realize it’s much easier than you think to start eating whole, plant-based foods.

  • Shelf-stable

*2 billion CFU bacillus coagulans at end of shelf life.

Usage
Mix 1 pack in 1 cup (8 fl. oz.) ice-cold water and enjoy!

 

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can I add it to a smoothie?

    You can add Vega® Probiotics to your smoothie if you desire. Just don’t be concerned if you see bubbles. Because Vega® Probiotics is effervescent, they may change the mouthfeel of your smoothie.

  • Can I mix it with juice/milk?

    We love Vega® Probiotics mixed with ice-cold water. But you’re welcome to try the liquid of your preference. Make it an experiment in your kitchen and let us know what you discover! Note that when mixed with some liquids, Vega® Probiotics may make your drink a little frothy, but maybe that’s what you’re looking for! While strawberry (non-dairy) milk is adored at Vega HQ, no one has fallen for vibrant green Mint Lemonade almond milk.

  • How is bacillus coagulans processed? I thought probiotics need to be refrigerated

    Each serving of Vega® Probiotics contains 2 billion CFUs of dairy-free, spore-forming bacillus coagulans (at end of shelf-life). Bacillus coagulans can survive and thrive in harsh environmental conditions. While other types of probiotic strains can die during transportation, storage or digestion, bacillus coagulans can survive the varying changes in temperature (like sitting on your pantry shelf), and the acidic environment of the stomach, allowing them to enter and flourish in in your gut. Because they are spore-forming, they are able to form hard shells around the bacteria to protect them from harsh, environmental factors like hot temperatures and acidic environments.

  • Why is it fizzy?

    Vega® Probiotics are fizzy (or if you want to be fancy: effervescent) because bubbles offer an appealing mouthfeel that many people find refreshing. The addition of sodium bicarbonate, potassium bicarbonate, and citric acid make it fizzy.

  • How many can I have in a day?

    Even good things should be enjoyed in moderation and we suggest you drink Vega® Probiotics as part of a balanced diet. If you have questions about your specific nutrition needs, it’s best to talk to your dietitian or health care practitioner.

  • Can I give this to my kids?

    We recommend speaking to your pediatrician first to determine if this product is right for your kids.

About the company

No matter what better means to you, Vega shares the knowledge, nutrition, and inspiration to support your quest to thrive.

Don’t worry—better isn’t an all-or-nothing challenge. Vega’s approach to better is a little bit different: we believe the best long-term changes happen with small, incremental steps, and that better should be sustainable—in all meanings of the word. This is why we’re fans of focusing not on what you should eliminate from your diet, but on what you can add. Start by adding one plant-based meal or dish a day—a smoothie for breakfast, salad for dinner, or soup for lunch—and you’ll realize it’s much easier than you think to start eating whole, plant-based foods.
