Cascadian Farm is launching a new line of bars made with organic pea protein, a protein source derived solely from plants. The new chewy bars are available nationwide in two flavors—Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip and Honey Roasted Nut—and provide consumers a convenient, great-tasting alternative to protein bars made with dairy and soy proteins, according to the company. Cascadian Farm’s bars with pea protein deliver 9g of protein per serving. The bars can serve as a quick snack or part of a meal
“We know consumers are searching for innovative products made with protein from legumes, vegetables and nuts, and so we are thrilled to introduce a new line of bars made with organic pea protein,” said Scott Lee, marketing director for Cascadian Farm. “What’s especially exciting about these bars is that we’ve found a way to deliver this protein source while also fulfilling our promise to provide our customers with delicious organic foods the whole family will enjoy.”
• Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip (MSRP: $4.49/box of five bars)—Made with organic peanut butter and Rainforest Alliance Certified Cocoa, these bars pack a sweet and salty punch.
• Honey Roasted Nut (MSRP: $4.49/box of five bars)—Packed with organic peanuts, organic peanut butter and organic honey, these bars are chewy and deliver a nutty crunchy.
Cascadian Farm pea protein bars hit shelves in late 2013 and are available now at mainstream supermarkets and select natural food stores nationwide. The new bars can be found in stores next to other Cascadian Farm crunchy and chewy bars.
