ProFormance Foods, the innovative snack food company dedicated to creating nutritious snack alternatives, is proud to announce the launch of ProTings, a protein-packed and nutritious chip. ProTings are vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, GMO-free, kosher and are packed with 15 grams of protein that is derived from pea protein isolate. These tasty 120-calorie and 7-carbohydrate-per-serving chips are available in three delicious flavors, including Chili Lime, Sea Salt and Tangy Southern BBQ in 1 oz. (MSRP $1.99) and 4 oz. (MSRP $3.99) bags.
We all know that protein is an essential nutrient needed to facilitate muscle growth and recovery, and while adults in the United States are encouraged to get 10 percent to 35 percent of their daily calories from protein, there are remarkably few high protein snack options available. In fact, the majority of chips include only 2 grams of protein per serving. Frustrated by the obvious lack of high-protein snacking alternatives, ProFormance Foods decided to make a difference and developed ProTings to allow consumers to move beyond boring protein bars and high-fat, high-preservative chips to a savory, crunchy, satisfying snack.
ProTings’ primary source of protein is pea protein, which is one of the best proteins for human consumption due to its easy digestibility, lack of allergens, and ideal combination of essential amino acids. Pea protein also balances nitrogen levels in muscles and helps restore that balance after daily activities or a trip to the gym. This leveling of nitrogen contributes to muscle metabolism and a healthy heart. Studies have also shown that pea protein may be an effective way to maintain healthy blood pressure and kidney levels.
In addition to pea protein, ProTings contain flax seeds, which are packed full of nutrients, omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, minerals, and essential vitamins. Diets rich in fiber and omega-3s are shown to support a healthy cardiovascular system by promoting a healthy blood lipid profile. Flax seeds are also an excellent source of vitamin E.
The unparalleled combination of high protein, low carbohydrates and a delicious, satisfying crunch ensures that ProTings will be a welcome snack alternative for everyone. ProFormance products are available in select retailers in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.
