Protica is confident that their new product will help consumers eat a healthier diet even when they are consuming a less-than-nutritious meal
Whitehall, PA (PRWEB) April 12, 2012
Protica is pleased to announce that their healthy condiment, Protein Ketchup, was featured on Fox News Dallas/Fort Worth as part of the Cooper Nutrition Expo held at Cooper Fitness Center in Dallas Texas on March 5th. The event was held in conjunction with National Nutrition Month and focused on making informed food choices. Protica provided samples of their nutritional snacks and beverages, including Protein Ketchup, to event attendees.
Protein Ketchup is designed to be a healthy alternative to traditional ketchups available on the market. Protein Ketchup contains less than half the sugar content as the leading ketchup brands. Protein ketchup also contains two servings of vegetables and 15 grams of Protein per serving, versus the leading ketchup on the market which contains very little protein.
Protica is confident that their new product will help consumers eat a healthier diet even when they are consuming a less-than-nutritious meal. “I love to eat French fries and dip them in ketchup. Unfortunately, it’s not very healthy for me. But if the ketchup I’m eating with my fries is also providing me with 2 servings of vegetables and 15 grams of protein, I feel a lot better -- mentally and physically -- about eating my favorite junk food,” says Jim Duffy, president and founder of Protica.
Attendees sampled Protica’s nutritional snacks including Protein Ketchup and Protein Gem®, a gelatin snack. The Nutrition Expo focused 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. Protein Ketchup and Gem followed the theme of the event by encouraging people to make healthy food choices.
Protica’s nutritional beverages were also 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® where also 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.
