SISTERS, ORE. — Laird Superfood, Inc., a maker of plant-based beverage products, is venturing into the snack food segment with the launch of Pili Nuts.
The plant-based snacks are sustainably harvested from the Philippines, sprouted in purified mountain water and slow dried to preserve their flavor. Laird Superfood Pili Nuts are dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free, paleo-friendly and vegan and come in three varieties: matcha, cacao and Himalayan salt.
The matcha variety features pili nuts coated in organic coconut flower sugar and organic Kyoto matcha, which is made from young tea plants in central Japan and offers a naturally sweet taste. Each 30-gram serving contains 190 calories, 3 grams of protein and 15 grams of fat.
The cacao pili nuts are dusted with organic Ecuadorian cacao and organic coconut flower sugar. Each 30-gram serving contains 210 calories, 4 grams of protein and 18 grams of fat.
The Himalayan salt flavor features pili nuts sprinkled with Himalayan salt. Each 30-gram serving contains 220 calories, 4 grams of protein and 23 grams of fat per 30-gram serving.
“The introduction of our Pili Nuts in the snack food category demonstrates our strong commitment to building a brand platform and continuing momentum in the natural foods market,” said Paul Hodge, chief executive officer and co-founder of Laird Superfood. “We aim to expand into many aisles of the grocery store — and we feel that Pili Nuts is the perfect place to start. They are convenient, nutritional and taste great for any adventure.”
Laird Superfood Pili Nuts retail for $11.95 for a pack of three.
