Product Focus: Protein Snacks


Food Processing

Many food and beverage manufacturers are formulating with ingredients that give their products a protein boost in efforts to appeal to these consumers.

“We know consumers are looking for protein-rich snack options that are also quick and convenient to meet an on-the-go lifestyle”
– Luis Marconi, Hormel Foods

Hormel Foods takes peanut butter out of the jar with new Skippy P.B. Bites, which feature a crunchy center with a soft, non-sticky peanut butter coating. The snack comes in two varieties — pretzel and double peanut butter — meeting both creamy and crunchy preferences. The 170g containers retail for $2.89 to $3.19. Each package contains five to six servings, with a serving containing 160 calories, 10g of fat and 5g of protein.
