We love all three flavors, which appeal to consumers who are looking for healthy snack foods or kosher snacks and non GMO foods. We also wanted to package our granola in a way that was simple, easy and convenient for consumers.
Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) March 15, 2013
Now available are the new Straight Up Granola™ and Straight Up Granola with Cranberries, said Gigi Twist, founder of Upfront Foods. Straight Up Granola is for consumers who take their whole grain cereals straight with no added fruit, nuts or other embellishments while Straight Up Granola with Cranberries sets off the crunchy texture of the certified organic whole grain oats with the cranberries’ sweet-tart chewiness, Twist said.
All three flavors are OK Kosher certified, have Non-GMO Project Verification, and are certified 100 percent whole grain cereals by the Whole Grains Council. They make an easy healthy breakfast granola cereal or a healthy snack on the go with their convenient, grab and go single-serving pouch, Twist said. Each granola contains certified organic whole grain oats sweetened with maple syrup and brown sugar along with flax seed, non-GMO canola oil, organic orange peel powder and sea salt. In addition to the plain granola snack and the granola with cranberries, Upfront Foods also produces Upfront Nutty Granola™, a granola with nuts, which contains pecans and almonds.
“It has always been our intent to add flavors and produce a line of granola--using the highest quality ingredients we could find--that fits the healthy lifestyle we are trying to create. We love all three flavors and believe they will appeal to other consumers who are looking for healthy snack foods or kosher snacks and non GMO foods,” Twist said. “We also wanted to package our granola in a way that was simple, easy and convenient for consumers who like the idea of a portion-controlled package. That single-serving, grab-and-go approach seems to be working well.”
Upfront Foods granola contains no artificial ingredients and is handmade at the company’s commercial production facility when it is ordered for maximum freshness, she added. Each 1.4-ounce pouch contains a ½ cup serving at only 140 to 170 calories. Suggested retail price is $1.49. More information is available online at UpfrontFoods.com or by calling 1-561-886-0209.
