Attendees will be sampling Protica’s nutritional snacks, Protein Gem, a gelatin snack and Protein Twist, a protein gummy candy. The Nutrition Expo will focus on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. Protica’s snacks are designed to be healthy alternatives to snacks that people already enjoy eating. Twist is designed to be a healthy alternative to gummy candies. Unlike other gummy candies on the market, Protein Twist contains almost no sugar while still maintaining the same sweet taste of sugary candies. In place of sugar, Protein Twist contains 15 grams of protein, one full serving of fruit, and two grams of fiber. Another healthy snack alternative is Protein Gem®, a gelatin snack available in six fruity flavors. Each six-ounce cup of Protein Gem contains 25 grams of protein, one serving of fruit, and five grams of fiber. Gem and Twist follow in the theme of the event by encouraging people to make healthy food choices.
Protica’s nutritional beverages will also be available for attendees to try. Along with Profect, the original protein shot, and Proasis, the original all natural protein shot; samples of Protica’s meal replacement shot, Isometric, and their fruit and vegetable shot, Fruitasia will also be available for health enthusiasts to try. Isometric meal replacement is designed to provide all the nutrients of a healthy meal in a compact, 3-ounce shot. Fruitasia contains an entire day’s recommended amount of fruits and vegetables in a ready-to-drink three-ounce shot.
