NEW YORK, Oct. 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Following its successful launch just over one year ago, award-winning Mediterra® (www.MediterraNutrition.com), the first company to introduce all-natural nutrition bars inspired by the Mediterranean Diet, has added two new Savory Bar flavors: Kale/Pumpkin Seed and Bell Pepper/Green Olive. With these new flavors, Mediterra now offers four truly savory bars that also include Sundried Tomato/Basil and Black Olive/Walnut.
"After our initial launch, the response to Mediterra's Savory Bars was overwhelmingly positive so the need to create additional flavors became obvious," says Telemaque Lavidas, founder of Mediterra. "People are tired of sweet nutrition bars and are paying close attention to sugar intake. Mediterra's Savory Bars address both issues."
Like the original Tomato/Basil and Black Olive/Walnut Savory Bars, the new Kale/Pumpkin Seed and Bell Pepper/Green Olive flavors are low in calories and sugar. All the Mediterra Savory Bars have less than four grams of sugar with no added sugars or sweeteners. The Kale/Pumpkin Seed and Bell Pepper/Green Olive bars have only one and two grams of sugar, respectively. In addition, Kale/Pumpkin Seed contains six grams of protein and Bell Pepper/Green Olive five grams of protein.
Rich in vegetables, nuts, herbs and seeds the bars also contain protein-rich pea crisps, amaranth and olive oil. Each Savory Bar weighs 1.23 ounces and is all-natural, non-GMO, Gluten-Free, certified kosher and dairy free. The MSRP is $1.99.
Lavidas adds, "You can actually see and taste the vegetables, seeds, herbs and grains when you're eating a Mediterra Savory Bar. It's real food and it's delicious, convenient and satisfying."
All Mediterra bars are based on the Mediterranean Diet that has been studied and noted by scores of leading scientists as one of the healthiest lifestyles in the world.
In addition to the first ever truly "Savory Bars," Mediterra also offers four other bar flavors that provide ancient nutrition in a modern and convenient way: "Yogurt and Oat Bars" in Yogurt/Oat/Cherry Pistachio and Yogurt/Oat/Apricot Pistachio flavors; and "Sesame Honey Energy Bars" featuring Sesame Seed/Pistachio/Greek Honey and Sesame Seed/Orange/Greek Honey.
