Plant-based snacks maker, Biena Snacks, is expanding its portfolio with the launch of Keto Puffs in the US.
Made from a simple list of ingredients, including chickpeas and lentils, the plant-based snacks are free from gluten, grains and dairy.
According to Biena, its new non-GMO offering is made with pea hull fibre to bring down the net carb count, making the puffs ketogenic diet compliant.
Biena Snacks CEO and founder, Poorvi Patodia, said: “We created this product for two reasons. First, the consumer response to our Chickpea Puffs launch last year was incredible – fans were drawn to the low-carb and high-protein content. And second, we saw a major void in the keto snack market – everything was meat and cheese.
“Keto Puffs are a complimentary addition to the Puffs line, bringing a delicious option to consumers following a keto or low-carb diet. With this launch, we’re excited to continue our mission of reinventing the snack aisle by creating products that are made with the best plant-based nutrition.”
Biena Keto Puffs will be available, for $3.99 per 2oz bag, at Whole Foods Market from 28 October, as well as via the company’s website, and the snacks launch on Amazon in January. The puffs will also be available in a six-count case on bienasnacks.com.
Last year, Biena secured $8 million in Series B financing led by MAW Investments.
