SunChips, the popular line of multigrain snacks from PepsiCo's Frito-Lay division, have launched a delicious new taste experience with the introduction of SunChips 6 Grain Medley snacks. Available in two flavours: Parmesan & Herb and Creamy Roasted Garlic, new SunChips 6 Grain Medley multigrain snacks are inspired by real food flavours and made with a combination of six flavourful grains, including corn, wheat, oats, brown rice, buckwheat and quinoa. They can be enjoyed with a variety of toppings and dips or as a delicious snack all on their own.
"For many, snacking offers a welcome break from a busy day, and consumers are looking for snack options that fit into a balanced lifestyle," said Tony Matta, vice president of marketing, Frito-Lay North America. "Consumers today are looking for snacks that provide whole grains and fiber, and are made with all natural ingredients, while tasting great. New SunChips 6 Grain Medley multigrain snacks offer a delicious taste experience inspired by real foods, containing 100 percent whole grains and are made with all-natural ingredients - no artificial flavors, preservatives or MSG."
Each serving of SunChips 6 Grain Medley Parmesan & Herb and SunChips 6 Grain Medley Creamy Roasted Garlic flavored snacks contains 21 grams of whole grains, nearly half of the 48 daily grams recommended by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Whole grains are richer in dietary fiber, antioxidants, minerals and vitamins than refined grains.
Both flavors of SunChips 6 Grain Medley multigrain snacks are cooked in healthier oils like, sunflower oil and corn oil, which are high in polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats (the "good" fats), lower in saturated fat (the "bad" fats) and contain 0 grams of "bad" trans fats.
