FRISCO, Texas, Aug. 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The latest U.S. Dietary guidelines call for cutting back on eating sugar if we are concerned about following healthy eating patterns. SOLA Snacks' snack and meal bars fit effortlessly within this and other guidelines. Sola Bar's nuts, seeds, herbs, and spices deliver only 1 gram of sugar in each of its 4 varieties of flavorful and nutritious savory bars.
The 2015 USDA report, issued every five years, calls for less than 10 percent of calories from added sugars per day. Sola Bar's very low sugar content of 1 gram per serving complements dietary recommendations based on an average 2,000 calorie per day diet. This is a welcome treat for many Americans looking for healthier snacking and meal alternatives.
Sola Bars are made from simple wholesome ingredients, those you'd find in your kitchen pantry: peanuts, sunflower seeds, flaxseeds, sesame seeds, garlic, ginger, cloves, cilantro, onion, cinnamon, sage, rosemary, thyme, nutmeg, and peppers. Being low on the glycemic index and low in carbohydrates makes Sola Bars potentially valuable for inclusion in diets of individuals managing diabetes, obesity, and other health conditions that call for reduced sugar and carbohydrates.
The versatility of Sola Bars as a stand-alone snack or a small meal that can be paired with other healthy foods is also consistent with national guidelines, which call for "nutrient-dense foods and beverages across and within all food groups in place of less healthy choices." They're rich in flavor and satisfying as a snack that can be eaten any time of day. Sola Bars add variety to other nutritious foods like salads, soups, fruits, and dairy products at the breakfast, lunch, or dinner table.
Another attribute of Sola Bars is their heart-healthy oils that come naturally from seeds and nuts. They are extremely low in sugar, good sources of fiber and protein, vegan, non-GMO, gluten-free, and soy-free. In fact, all the health qualities in Sola Bars come directly from the ingredients themselves. Sola Bars are not fortified with fiber or protein isolates and flavors are derived solely from healthy herbs and spices without having to use flavor extracts.
USDA dietary guidelines also suggest that Americans vary their protein by consuming high-protein sources from other foods besides meat, poultry, seafood, and eggs. Sola Bars deliver plant-based proteins from protein-rich peanuts and seeds – the ingredients that make Sola Bars satisfying, flavorful, and an important part of the daily American diet.
