ADA, Mich. (PRWEB) November 22, 2006

It's not surprising that, with their hectic lifestyles, Americans say convenience is their top motivation when making food choices. For many Americans, the need for effortless meals and snacks comes before the need for health and nutrition, which has led to the growing obesity epidemic in this country.

Quixtar introduces two new products that are healthy alternatives to traditional snacks, providing total convenience and taste while keeping calories in check. TRIM ADVANTAGE® CRUNCH ZONE® Snack Chips are perfect for the health-conscious adult who's constantly on-the-go. SEISMICâ„¢ Super Snacks Pizza-flavored Puffs are a great tasting snack that kids love and parents can feel good about. Both products come in handy, individual, calorie-controlled packets.

TRIM ADVANTAGE CRUNCH ZONE Snack Chips are a tasty, baked alternative to traditional potato chips or other snacks. Featuring a delicious honey barbecue flavor, CRUNCH ZONE Snack Chips offer a satisfying crunch with no added artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. These oven-toasted treats are full of heart-healthy soy protein, contain no trans fats and are suitable for vegetarians.

SEISMIC Super Snacks Pizza-flavored Puffs also contain healthy soy protein along with great fun flavor in a low-fat puffy snack. Kids love the light texture and delicious pizza flavor, and parents will enjoy the individual packages that can easily be tossed into a backpack or lunch bag. The typical American kid eats an average of two snacks a day, on top of meals. But at only 110 calories a pack, SEISMIC Super Snacks Pizza-flavored Puffs will satisfy without the extra calories, fats or sugars found in typical snack foods.

The FDA has determined that diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol that include 25 grams of soy protein a day may reduce the risk of heart disease. One 110-calorie serving of SEISMIC Super Snacks Pizza-flavored Puffs provides a full 8 grams of soy protein, while one 100-calorie serving of TRIM ADVANTAGE CRUNCH ZONE Snack Chips offers 7 grams of soy protein.

TRIM ADVANTAGE CRUNCH ZONE Snack Chips and SEISMIC Super Snacks Pizza-flavored Puffs are available exclusively from Quixtar Independent Business Owners in the United States and Canada or by visiting http://www.quixtar.com.
