The 2022 Healthy Snack Awards highlight snacks in the food space that meet the publication’s nutritional criteria (including caps on per-serving calories, sugar, and sodium). Good Housekeeping‘s dietitian and nutrition experts from the Nutrition Lab analyzed ingredient lists, nutrition facts labels, packaging claims and flavor profiles of hundreds of snacks.
Consumer testers also weighed in on taste and provided additional real-life analysis.
The lab found that the two products were the “highest-protein snack nut” packed with 6 grams of protein per serving. The consumer testers also found that the flavors were “absolutely fantastic” and noted the “consistency in size and freshness.” The two flavors were named the “Best Pistachios” on the publication’s list.
