Texas' Legendary Baker Offers Innovative New Bread to Promote Digestive
FORT WORTH, Texas, Sept. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- As consumers are expecting more from their daily bread, Mrs Baird's, Texas' legendary bread company, is responding by introducing the first prebiotic bread available in mainstream supermarkets in Texas. Mrs Baird's today introduced Acti-Fiber Wheat bread containing prebiotics fibers to aid in digestive health. The wheat bread combines the goodness of whole grains with digestive health benefits, a first in local bread aisles.
"We are very excited to offer the first widely available prebiotic bread in the region," said Aaron Fisher, Mrs Baird's Brand Manager. "In this competitive marketplace, it is important to stay ahead of the curve. Research shows consumers are demanding more from their everyday foods and there is a strong interest in pre- and pro-biotic products."
According to Datamonitor, U.S. sales of products that aid in digestive health exceeded $600 Million in 2006. Pre and pro-biotic new product introductions increased by 375 percent from 2005 to 2007.
Mrs Baird's Acti-Fiber Wheat is a prebiotic bread that aids in digestive health. It has a prebiotic fiber, derived from chicory root, which promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria in the digestive system. Studies indicate that these friendly bacteria may inhibit the development and growth of harmful strains of bacteria. In addition, Mrs Baird's Acti-Fiber Wheat is a good source of fiber, a good source of calcium and contains eight grams of whole grains per serving.
