Anaheim, CA March 6, 2014 – Vega, the leader in clean plant-based nutrition, announced a new bar family today at Natural Products Expo West. Bursting with whole food ingredients, the new Vega Bar family includes a brand new bar addition, fresh new recipes and exciting flavor profiles to satisfy all taste buds. The full Vega Bar family provides clean answers for daily needs– from morning meal, to satisfying mid-day snack, to mid-workout fuel and post-workout protein.
“Inspired by consumers’ growing interest in clean, nutrient dense snacks on-the-go,” explains Vega’s Formulator, Brendan Brazier, “Vega set out to improve the flavors, texture and overall experience of our bars, with new formulations to make a snack the fueling highlight of the day.”
Like the entire Vega product line, all Vega Bars are clean and plant-based – made with real, whole food ingredients and as always, gluten free and non GMO. Vega’s new bar family includes:
