New Zealand-owned snack food company Tasti is for the first time launching two new plant-based snacks in Australia.
The two newly launched products from Tasti – Fruit+Vege Wholefood Balls and Protein+ Bars – cater to a growing number of Australians who are following a plant-based diet.
According to Sports Dieticians Australia, that number has grown to 2.5 million Australians who are looking for new easily accessible snacking options that cater to their plant-based lifestyle.
The new Tasti products are backed by Australian Nutritionist and Wholefood cook, Jacqueline Alwill, who highlights the benefits they have to the Australian market.
“There has been an incredible surge in the number of Aussies who are educating themselves, turning away from snacks loaded with highly refined sugars and diversifying their diet with more plant-based meals and snacks,” she said.
Tasti’s plant-based approach places an emphasis on high quality ingredients including vegetables, fruits, whole grains, seeds and nuts.
While Protein+ is filled with plant protein, Fruit+Vege is Australia’s first ever apple-based bliss ball made from real fruit and vegetables that contains no added sugar.
Tasti’s Fruit+Vege and Protein+ are available in-store now at Coles, Woolworths and independent grocers.
