New Organic Snack Company Raises "Bar" for Nutrition Among Pregnant and Breastfeeding Women CredibleCravings bars designed collaboratively with obstetricians, midwives and nutritionists
IRVINE, Calif., May 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- At last, an organic snack bar developed specifically for expecting and nursing women. Following a wildly successful launch at Natural Products Expo West in March, CredibleCravings continues to generate excitement amongst retailers, healthcare practitioners, nutritionists, reporters, and consumers. The company, which just received gluten-free certification, kicked off a month-long celebration last Wednesday, honoring both Pregnancy Awareness Month and Mother's Day.
CredibleCravings whole food bars were developed collaboratively with obstetricians, midwives, and nutritionists to provide women with a natural source of the nutrients and energy they need for a healthy pregnancy and healthy baby.
Certified organic, certified gluten-free, kosher, non-GMO, soy-free, and recently 'Ashley Koff approved', CredibleCravings does not cut corners on ingredients. "We teamed up with experts to identify the essential vitamin and mineral needs and ideal energy sources for the perinatal period, then selected natural, fresh ingredients to meet those needs," explains Stephanie Baker, Founder of the Southern California-based company.
In addition to being made entirely of organic veggies, fruits, nuts and sprouted seeds, CredibleCravings bars incorporate top-quality probiotics. "Our goal at CredibleCravings is to help mothers create a nourishing environment for their growing babies by maintaining optimal health during pregnancy and while breastfeeding," said Rebecca Hodgson, CredibleCravings, PharmD. "We feel that the addition of a probiotic during this time will help meet this goal." CredibleCravings chose to include the GanedenBC30 probiotic due to its superior safety and efficacy profile – FDA GRAS approved and supported by 17 peer-reviewed studies.
CredibleCravings debuts its bars in three flavor varieties:
CredibleCravings is the first organic whole food bar developed collaboratively with obstetricians, midwives, and nutritionists to support the nutritional needs of women before, during, and after pregnancy. Each and every ingredient was chosen for a specific nutritional benefit for mom and baby - no fillers, no artificial sweeteners or preservatives and certified organic, certified gluten-free, kosher, non-GMO, soy-free, 1 billion probiotic cultures, and available in three delicious flavors: oatmeal cranberry, chocolate, and lemon ginger greens.
