Mill Valley, CA (PRWEB) August 3, 2006
90 calorie, all natural satisfaction is just a click from the lips now that the LightFull Satiety Smoothie is sold at Amazon.com’s new grocery store. This surprisingly filling snack is only 90 calories and packed with six grams of fiber and six grams of protein.* LightFull smoothies keep people feeling full and satisfied for two to three hours on average. Available in four delicious flavors -- Strawberries & Cream, Peaches & Cream, Chocolate Fudge and Café Latte -- LightFull is also all natural (no artificial sweeteners), contains three cups worth of green tea antioxidants and is an excellent source of calcium.
The LightFull Satiety Smoothie is one of the first foods formulated specifically to address the role of satiety (pronounced Sa-TI-eh-TEE), the sensation of fullness, in intelligent food choice management. Foods higher in fiber and protein per calorie take longer to digest, and keep people feeling full longer. Knowing this, the team at LightFull set out to create a convenient, nutritious and delicious snack for people on-the-go to help them feel full with fewer calories—and to make it easier to make healthy eating choices. The result is the LightFull Satiety Smoothie, which contains more fiber, protein and volume per calorie than any other snack product on the market!
“LightFull has been delighting consumers who’ve discovered our satisfying smoothies in grocery and natural product stores in California and on the East Coast,” said Lara Jackle, chief executive officer of LightFull Foods. “Now that LightFull is available on Amazon.com, delicious, convenient, nutritious satisfaction is just a click from the lips for people across the United States.”
”I’m thrilled that LightFull Satiety Smoothies are now available online!” said Ingrid Richardson of Douglasville, Georgia. “A girlfriend brought me a couple smoothies to try from her travels and I fell in love with them, but they weren’t carried by my local grocery stores. Now, LightFull Satiety Smoothies are just a click away and can be delivered to my doorstep.”
Satiety is a dietitian-recommended strategy for eating foods that create a sensation of fullness. LightFull Foods developed a Satiety Rule of Thumb Index to help people understand how different foods compare in satiety. The larger the number, the more satiety – or fullness -- obtained from each calorie. To determine a food’s index per serving, simply add the grams of protein and fiber together, multiply by 100, and divide by the number of calories. With six grams of fiber, six grams of protein and 90 calories per smoothie,* each LightFull Satiety Smoothie has a fullness index between 12 and 13, depending on the flavor. In comparison, an apple yields a score of 3 and an ounce of almonds rates 5.5 on the index.
The LightFull Satiety Smoothie is the ground-breaking debut product of LightFull Foods. This women-led, entrepreneurial company was co-founded by Lynn Graham and Lara Jackle, two women who spent their adult lives struggling to stay healthy as they juggled their careers, personal lives and desire to find time to give back to their community. Too often eating right was the ball that got dropped because convenient options were either unhealthy or weren’t satisfying. They teamed up to start LightFull Foods, a company dedicated to helping people “juggle without struggle” by creating convenient, deliciously filling, low-calorie, all-natural snacks.
