Vital introduces delicious on-the-go snacks

Vital-enters-NPCVital Health Foods introduces rice crisps, bars and bites for the ideal on-the-go snack. The new range of products has been entered in the Food Review/Symrise New Product Competition.

Busy lifestyles mean less time for balanced meals, with grab-and-go snacks supplementing our diets. Andrea du Plessis, nutritional expert at Vital Health Foods, says many snacks contain large quantities of hidden sugars, fats and salt, and little nutritional value in terms of vitamins and fibre. ‘Vital Health Foods realised that there was a need to develop a snack that contributes to nutritional needs and is also delicious,’ she says.

The company has introduced tasty snacking options that also ensure you get the nutrients you need, no matter how pushed for time you are. Vital Health Foods’ bars and bites and air-popped rice crisps tick several boxes as the ideal on- the-go snack. The Vital bars and bites contain 12 vitamins at 100 per cent Nutrient Reference Values (NRV). They have no added sugar or preservatives, and are gluten free.

Vital bars and bites come in three flavours: cashew and coconut; almond and cocoa; and seed, almond and cinnamon. Products are ideal for those who suffer from sensitivities to gluten and preservatives. They’re also perfect to pack in school lunchboxes or as an after-workout treat.

Air-popped rice crisps, made from wholegrain brown and white rice contain less than 400kj per 20g serving. They free of gluten, trans fats, added MSG, preservatives and aspartame and a great alternative to potato crisps. They come in three mouth-watering variants: fruit chutney, sweet and spicy pepper salsa, and cream cheese and chives.
