MONTVALE, N.J., June 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Sprout Foods today announced that it has been named a Best Bite Award winner by Delicious Living magazine, a trusted health and wellness resource for more than 32 years. Now in its fifth year, the Best Bite Awards were initiated to help consumers make healthy and smart food and beverage purchases in a market increasingly saturated with new products and wellness claims.
"We are thrilled to have been named a 2017 Best Bite Award winner alongside other brands that demonstrate integrity in their ingredient sourcing, nutrition, taste and company missions," said Rick Klauser, CEO at Sprout®. "This honor highlights our commitment to providing families with access to the cleanest ingredients without sacrificing delicious flavors. Since 2008, Sprout has sought to introduce an early love of healthy, whole organic foods to children everywhere, and we will continue to innovate and expand our product offering to provide parents with the variety they need to satisfy any developing palate."
Sprout was awarded the Best Bite distinction in the Best Baby or Toddler Food category for its new plant-based Broccoli Organic Curlz™ toddler snack. Sprout launched Curlz™ earlier this year under their new Plant Powered line of baby food, also including new Stage 3 plant-based protein baby food purees and Power Pak™ toddler purees. Curlz™ are the first plant-powered snack for toddlers made from organic chickpeas and lentils, and are available in Broccoli, White Cheddar, and Sweet Potato & Cinnamon. Unlike other baby food brands, Sprout adds organic rosemary to maintain freshness and uses only USDA certified organic and non-GMO ingredients. Curlz are gluten-free and contain no added sugars, concentrates, preservatives, flavors or colors.
Delicious Living's editorial team carefully selected the Best Bite winners after calling on industry experts and manufacturers to nominate natural products for consideration. More than 750 products were tested and judged based on nutrition, ingredients and transparency efforts, but only 38 were chosen as winners within their categories.
"After scrutinizing hundreds of natural food and beverage products, I'm delighted to share the winners and finalists of Delicious Living's fifth-annual Best Bite Awards," said Jenna Blumenfeld, Delicious Living's senior food editor. "The awards celebrate brands that source ingredients to better people and planet, improve transparency in manufacturing practices and make healthy eating more accessible. Importantly, each winning product had to be ultra-tasty, too!"
