May 26, 2014 — Navitas Naturals, The Superfood Company, is adding two new varieties of Power Snacks to their award-winning line that was launched in 2011. The delicious new Coffee-Cacao and Lemon-Goldenberry Power Snacks continue the Navitas Naturals tradition of creating healthy, organic snacks that make it easy for people to add superfood nutrition to their diet. Navitas Power Snacks are certified organic, certified gluten-free, dairy-free, minimally processed and kosher.
Navitas Naturals searches around the globe to obtain the most nutritious, wholesome and sustainably cultivated organic foods. These two new varieties of energizing grab-and-go snacks feature many functional food all-stars, including Maca, Cacao, Chia, Hemp, Goldenberries, Cashews and Camu.
The combination of superfoods in these chewy, bite-sized cubes provides a well-balanced supply of antioxidants, fiber, protein, essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. There are no refined sugars, artificial flavors or colors added to Navitas Power Snacks. They gain sweetness from superfood sweeteners — Coconut Palm Sugar, Lucuma and from dates and figs.
“Our Power Snacks have been a big hit ever since we launched them in 2011, and these two new varieties provide our customers with more flavor and functionality options,” says CEO Zach Adelman, who founded Navitas Naturals in 2003. “Navitas Power Snacks are a simple and delicious way to introduce people to superfoods, and they also give experienced superfoodies a fun new format to enjoy their favorites.”
