Buddha Brands ™ Unveils Plant Based Keto Hungry Buddha® Bars in Two Fresh New Flavors
MONTREAL – (COMMERCIAL THREAD) –Buddha Marks™, maker of healthier plant-based foods and beverages, today unveiled two new, deliciously on-trend flavors from its Hungry Buddha® Keto Bars line: Lemon Blueberry and Mint chip. Focused on creating a brand that reflects a conscious effort to live better, eat better, and do better, the co-founders build on the successful launch of Hungry Buddha® Keto Bars to provide consumers with variety, including its first fruit bar. Powered by clean ingredients, the new bars join the existing range of flavors: Triple Chocolate, Coconut Cacao, Espresso Brownie, and Chocolate Chip.
The plant-based food sector is on an upward trajectory. Retail sales of plant-based foods increased 27% to a value of $ 7 billion in 2020, according to SPINS data released by the Good Food Institute and the Plant Based Foods Association (PBFA). In addition, about 32 million Americans suffer from food allergies, according to Food Allergy Research and Education. Keto Hungry Buddha® bars meet both needs as they are free from animal products, peanuts, soy, dairy and gluten, making them an ideal allergy snack that the whole family will enjoy. .
“We’re laser-focused on creating snacks that not only taste great, but are made with clean, potent, plant-based ingredients. We’re excited to expand beyond our basic flavors with two new iconic combinations: Lemon Blueberry and Mint Chip. Although there are many brands in the market that offer peanut flavored options, as a brand focused on eliminating allergens, this was not an option for us. Naturally, we wanted to expand outside of the norm and offer consumers something special, and we’re extremely happy with these two delicious new additions, ”said Chris Magnone, CEO and Co-Founder of Buddha Brands ™. “Despite the overall drop in the snack category last year, we are seeing continued success with consumers and retailers as keto-friendly plant-based products have resonated extremely well. The category has been on the verge of being disrupted for years, as most bars are loaded with sugar, allergens, and substandard ingredients. As consumers search for better brands and products to support their keto lifestyle, we expect to be at the forefront of this growth. Hungry Buddha® Keto Bars provide a low-sugar, allergen-free snack to support conscious, healthy lifestyle choices, and our hope is to continue to inspire people to make nutritional decisions that make them feel good.
A category disruptor, Hungry Buddha® Keto Bars are the first keto-friendly bars on the market made without sugar alcohols, palm oils, dairy, or soy. Using only clean and useful ingredients, Hungry Buddha® Keto Bars are made with MCT oil and sunflower seeds as a source of healthy fat, pea protein for plant-based fuel, and monk fruit for a twist. of sweetness without a peak of sugar. With 9-10g of plant-based protein, just 1-2g of sugar, and 4g of net carbs per bar, Hungry Buddha® Keto Bars beat the competition as Nielsen Market Track notes that out of 10 bars in supermarkets, nine contain less than 5 g of protein, five contain more than 10 g of sugar and nine contain nuts, dairy or soy. The range is certified vegan and keto, project verified to be GMO-free, gluten-free, and made in a dedicated peanut-free facility.
