People love to snack, but many consumers are trying to satisfy their cravings with products that are better for them. That’s why Cargill is showcasing delicious and innovative Corozonas® snacks made with CoroWise™ plant sterols at this year’s Natural Products Expo West and SupplyExpo. Corazonas® tortilla chips, potato chips and oatmeal squares are now made exclusively with CoroWise™ plant sterols, which have demonstrated their ability to decrease “bad” (LDL) cholesterol in numerous clinical studies.
Attendees of the March 10-13 event at the Anaheim Convention Center, are invited to visit Cargill’s booth (#434), to taste-test the latest products made with the company’s health-promoting ingredients, including:
Whole grain, high-fiber “Breakfast-time Cookies” made with Oliggo-Fiber® inulin to support digestive health, that also deliver five other important nutrients.
A refreshing sports drink fortified with Regenasure® glucosamine hydrochloride, a non-shellfish, vegetarian-sourced ingredient. Glucosamine is a popular ingredient and many consumers believe that it helps them address their joint health concerns.
Innovative and convenient raspberry- and vanilla-flavored energy gels sweetened with Xtend™ sucromalt for sustained energy delivery without the blood sugar peaks and valleys of traditional carbohydrate sweeteners. Formulated without fat, fiber or protein, these gels support energy needs before, during or after exercise by providing a source of carbohydrates that is slowly digested and absorbed.
