FRISCO, Texas, Feb. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Sola Lamikanra, the creator of Sola Bars, would often ask himself, "Why does a nutritional snack bar have to be sweet?" He also wondered why he wasn't seeing many processed products that contained simple clean ingredients people eat on a daily basis.
The SOLA Snacks founder and President spent much of his life researching and developing healthy food products. It wasn't until he came up with a unique proprietary process to bind non-sweetened ingredients that the missing piece to the puzzle was found. Now he has a savory blend made up of only wholesome ingredients, without the need for sugar, or other additives to hold them together, in the convenience of a bar.
A Fellow of the Institute of Food Technologists, Sola is intensely focused on how to deliver more healthy foods to people who want to maintain a healthy lifestyle and those who need to limit certain foods for health reasons. For Sola it's personal. Diabetes was prevalent in his family.
Born and raised in Nigeria, Sola developed a strong interest in global food and agriculture at an early age. After college graduation, he intended to help ensure global food availability. After his move to England and received a Ph.D. in Food Science from the University of Leeds, his interest in health foods heightened. Continuing his career in food science in the U.S., Sola has led several international research programs in fresh foods and healthy snacks.
When Sola formed his natural food company SOLA Snacks, LLC in 2014, his goal was a unique great tasting healthy meal-like snack made with consumer friendly, wholesome, and natural ingredients; low sugar and carbs, gluten-free, and non-GMO – qualities vegetarians, vegans, diabetics, and dieters desired.
SOLA Snacks' first product launch: a savory, snack and meal bar for health-conscious consumers, a wholesome snack in bar form for a home or on-the-go snack or mini-meal. His patent-pending binding process keeps the ingredients crumble-free and without the need for sugar or anything artificial.
"I also wanted a product with ingredients anyone might have in their pantry and that stood out in flavor as much as in health benefits," says Sola."
The anytime snack and meal bars contain peanuts mixed with seeds, herbs, and spices like cilantro, onions, sage, rosemary, nutmeg, ginger, cloves ... The bars come in four savory flavors: garlic, jalapeno, chipotle, and cinnamon – with complementary herbs and spices. Each of the flavors forms crunchy, zesty bars, the product of an innovative binding process and thoughtful attention to texture and the blending of savory flavors.
A Sola Bar contains only 1 gram of sugar. Its nutrients all come from wholesome ingredients and are not fortified with fiber or protein isolates. Flavors are derived solely from healthy herbs and spices without having to use flavor extracts. They're sold as individual bars or in packs on www.solasnacks.com and Amazon.com.
