Glanbia-owned Optimum Nutrition has introduced its first savoury ready-to-eat protein snack range.
Protein Ridges are described as crunchy, baked whey protein squares coated in savoury spices. The gluten-free line is available in the US in four flavours: sour cream, BBQ, honey sriracha, and cheese.
Each one-bag serving has 15g of whey protein, 170 calories and, depending on the flavour, 2g to 3g of sugar and 14g to 16g of carbohydrates.
Four flavours are available: sour cream, BBQ, honey sriracha, and cheese.
Sarah Teeter, director of marketing for Optimum Nutrition, said: “Optimum Nutrition constantly innovates to satisfy tastes. Not everyone is looking to satisfy a sweet tooth – Protein Ridges are the perfect anytime snack when you want something satisfyingly crunchy with a savoury kick, and a great protein-rich alternative to traditional chips or crackers.”
She added: “Protein Ridges are just the latest addition to a growing family of ready-to-eat and ready-to-drink products from ON. People want convenient options that also feed their desire to make good nutritional choices.”
The launch comes a month after Optimum Nutrition released its Nature Bites range to offer consumers a source of non-dairy protein.
