St. Louis, MO (July 16, 2008) – ExtendSnacks, creators of the ever-popular ExtendBar®, transforms American snacking into a healthful culinary delight with the increased retail availability of ExtendCrisps™. Patented technology, utilizing uncooked cornstarch, make ExtendCrisps™ the first and only crunchy snack clinically proven to provide up to 9 hours of glucose control.

ExtendCrisps™,are the next generation of products based on the original ExtendBar® technology, that is intended to help control hunger by suppressing appetite, reduce blood sugar swings, avoid low blood sugar even overnight, and sustain energy during exercise and recovery.

ExtendSnacks is committed to combating the dual epidemics of obesity and diabetes with each and every bite. Visit for more information about managing your blood sugar and your health.
