General Mills' Small Planet Foods has introduced a new line of organic pea protein bars through its Cascadian Farm brand. The bars have 9 grams of protein per serving and are available nationwide in two flavors, peanut butter chocolate chip and honey roasted nut. “What’s especially exciting about these bars is that we’ve found a way to deliver this protein source while also fulfilling our promise to provide our customers with delicious organic foods the whole family will enjoy," said Scott Lee, marketing director.
Clif Bar has introduced a Luna Carrot Cake variety and launched the Clif Builder's Max line of high-protein bars with casein, whey and soy. The Max bars, with 30 grams of protein and 390 calories, are sold in caramel peanut, chocolate chip cookie dough and mint chocolate chip flavors.
Clif Bar announced that its Luna Bar brand has launched chocolate-dipped coconut and chocolate chunk offerings, and the Luna Protein line has expanded with mint-chocolate chip and chocolate flavors.
