U.S. producer of healthy snack products Quest Nutrition has this May introduced their latest innovation with the Quest Nutrition Tortilla Style Protein Chips. These savory snacks feature at least nine times the protein and approximately 75% lower net carbs compared to conventional chips, giving consumers craveable snacks that work for them, not against them. Each bag contains 18-19g of protein with only 4g of net carbs. These savory tortilla style chips currently come in the brand's two most popular flavours, Nacho Cheese and Ranch.
"As consumers seek healthier food options, they often feel deprived of eating the snacks they love. With our bars and cookies, we offer many ways to feed sweet cravings, so we are happy to expand our savoury options with this new line," said Suzanne Ginestro, chief marketing officer at Quest Nutrition. "It is our goal to support consumers on their wellness journey by giving them foods they crave in protein-packed, low-carb options."
Consumers love for salty snacking continues to grow at a fast rate in the U.S. Overall, sales of salty snacks have increased 30% since 2011, reaching an estimated $11.2 billion in 2016. And today's snackers are hungry for better-for-you snacks that provide all the benefits of a crunchy snack without compromising on taste. With less than 1g of sugar and no soy, Quest Tortilla Style Protein Chips are baked, not fried and have the same protein-rich and low net carb profile as all Quest products.
