New Functional Food Snacks Contain Ingredients Medically Proven to Reduce
Impact of Diagnosed Health Conditions
LAGUNA HILLS, Calif., June 24 /PRNewswire/ -- In response to increasing demand for convenient, tasty, satisfying foods that help people prevent and manage Diabetes and heart disease, WatchDog Nutrition(TM) today announced availability of its snack bars in over 200 Southern California Ralph's grocery stores. Invented by doctors, nutritionists and fitness experts, WatchDog Nutrition snack bars are formulated with nutrients and ingredients scientifically proven to help people maintain heart-healthy lifestyles or diabetic diets.
"Ralph's is an ideal partner for WatchDog Nutrition's line of functional foods and the first of several retail chains that you'll be able to buy them in," said Dr. Rajeev Saggar, CEO and one of the three founders of WatchDog Nutrition. "Demand for snack foods properly formulated for whole health is increasing, and the addition of WatchDog bars to Ralph's adult nutrition products section magnifies their commitment to providing convenient, healthy, great tasting foods."
WatchDog Heart Healthy bars are a satisfying healthy snack. These low-calorie functional food bars contain several proven natural ingredients such as fiber, plant sterols, oats, and beta-glucans that may help reduce the risk of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and other heart-related conditions when consumed as part of a diet low in salt, total fat, and saturated fat. With no trans fats or high-fructose corn syrup, the bars contain only what's good for you -- and don't have common bar ingredients many consumers prefer to avoid.
The Diabetic Healthy functional food bars are not only low in simple sugars and glycemic index, which is important for maintaining an optimal diabetic diet, but they are formulated to help reduce the medical problems commonly associated with diabetes such as heart disease, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. These diabetic snacks also provide only the essential vitamins and minerals that are most critical to the diabetic diet.
In addition to the Heart Healthy and Diabetes Healthy snack bars, WatchDog Nutrition will introduce a Joint Healthy bar this summer and has plans to introduce a children's snack bar and a line of healthy beverages.
