Carbsense Foods Launches 21 New Low-Carb Food Products

HOOD RIVER, Ore., -- Carbsense Foods, Inc., a leading manufacturer of all natural, reduced-carbohydrate foods, turns up the heat in this already “blazing-hot” category with the introduction of 21 new reduced-carbohydrate products. “We are passionate about the low-carb category, and rolling out 21 new SKUs is evidence that we’re strongly committed to maintaining our leadership position”, says Carbsense Marketing V.P., Kevin Dalrymple.

Jim Haun, President of Carbsense Foods, adds, “Launching 21 new items of this caliber in such a short period of time may be unprecedented. I can’t properly express how proud I am of everyone involved.” The new products launch under the Carbsense brands, AramanaTM and MiniCarbTM, and include Soy Energy Bars, Pasta Meal Mixes, Granola, Hot Cereal, Soy Tortilla Chips, Soy Pretzels and Baking Mixes.

According to the Natural Marketing Institute’s Health and Wellness Trends Report 2003, nearly two-thirds of the U.S. population consumed low-carbohydrate and high-protein foods in 2002. Additionally, the report indicates that 21 per cent of all U.S. households increased their use of low-carb foods last year. Carbsense Foods has experienced phenomenal growth of their own since their incorporation in 2001. They have assembled a team of highly talented industry and financial professionals who have managed to quickly rise to the top of the low-carb grocery category.

The two-tier formula for their success is simple, as Dalrymple explains - “The leaders in our company are firmly committed to low-carb eating in our own lives (note: Dalrymple himself has dropped 40 lbs., now comfortably below his weight as a high school athlete). We understand the wants and needs of our customers. Secondly, with experience as senior executives with some of the nation’s largest food manufacturers, we’ve been able to create an efficient manufacturing and logistic network that enables us to typically ship orders the same-day they are received from anywhere in the country.”

The quality and subsequent popularity of Carbsense products has enabled them to secure distribution through many of the nation’s leading health, natural foods and grocery distributors. Carbsense products can now be found in leading retailers including Kroger, Fred Meyer, QFC, Albertsons, Whole Foods Market and King Kullen among others.

“We’re very pleased with the rapid growth we’ve experienced, as well as the comments we regularly receive from our customers about how much their lives have been enriched by their low-carb diets now that they have great-tasting low-carb alternatives for the foods they love,” adds Haun.

Carbsense Foods, Inc. is located in Hood River, Oregon, in the heart of the Pacific Northwest's Columbia River Gorge, where good health and wholesome eating is a natural way of life.
