Danisco Healthy Snacks for the Whole Family

Elmsford, New York, July 9, 2007 – Because we now lead such busy lives, traditional meal breaks are often replaced by on-the-go snacks. With this in mind, Danisco has developed a range of revolutionary snack bar products intended to meet four lifestyle situations with specific benefits, without compromising the exceptional taste and texture required for commercial success.

Something for everyone
The nutrition bar was initially introduced as a performance enhancer for athletes, but today the concept of health, nutrition and well-being has led to a whole new and comprehensive range of convenience products for the entire family.

School’s Out Snack Bar for Youngsters
Ideal for the school lunchbox or as an afternoon pick-me-up, Danisco’s School’s Out Bar is a healthier alternative snack for young people, helping to maintain alertness and stamina.
