NEW YORK — Kind Healthy Snacks has introduced Kind Healthy Grains, a line of snack clusters made from whole grains. Each of the six flavors feature artisanal blends of 100% whole grains such as amaranth, quinoa and buckwheat, along with additional ingredients such as blueberries, walnuts, chia seeds and flax.
“Similar to the way we reinvented the bar category with our original line of whole nut and fruit bars, we aim to take the healthy snacking category to the next level with the introduction of Kind Healthy Grains,” said Daniel Lubetzky, founder and chief executive officer of Kind. “Kind Healthy Grains sets a new category standard in terms of taste and nutrition — and offers consumers a versatile and portable breakfast or healthy snack made from the highest quality, nutritionally rich ingredients that are free from the fillers and added sugar that pack today’s grocery aisles.”
