NASHVILLE — Diane’s Kitchen LLC, a new consumer packaged goods company, has unveiled its flagship product line: Daily Crunch Snacks. The line of sprouted nuts is made using a multi-step soaking and dehydration process that increases the nutritional value, eases digestion and adds to the nuts’ crunchiness, according to the company.
“Sprouting is a process of soaking the nuts in purified water, activating germination (sprouting), which results in them being more easily digestible due to a decrease in phytic acid, while keeping the nuts’ nutritional value,” Diane’s Kitchen said. “Daily Crunch then slowly dehydrates the nuts, resulting in a more nutritious, crisp nut snack.”
Non-GMO Project verified, gluten-free, keto, paleo and vegan, the snacks come in three varieties: Sprouted Almonds, Coffee-Soaked Sprouted Almonds, and Cherry Berry Nut Medley.
The almonds contain 250 calories, 9 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber per 42-gram package. The Coffee-Soaked Sprouted Almonds contain 250 calories, 9 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber per package.
The Cherry Berry Nut Medley is made with almonds, walnuts, cashews, dried blueberries, dried cherries, cane sugar and sunflower oil. Each package contains 210 calories, 5 grams of protein and 2 grams of fiber.
“Our mission with Daily Crunch is to provide the consumer with smarter snacking decisions through our lineup of uniquely crunchy sprouted snacks,” said Laurel Orley, co-founder of Diane’s Kitchen. “As a working mother, I am aware of the pressure women face in offering nutritious snacks to themselves and their families.
