Parents, are you looking for an on the go snack that both you and the kids will enjoy but not without all of the added calories? Zing Bars could be the answer if you want to give your child a treat, but at the same time want it to contain ingredients that actually feed a growing body with protein, fiber, and healthy carbs.
Zing is different from the typical nutrition bar. The nutrition and energy bar industry were originally founded to address the needs of athletes. These recipes relied on high glycemic carbs that could be burned quickly by athletes during exercise. Zing has reformulated the nutrition bar recipe for real people, not athletes. The Zing formula is deeply rooted in ‘nutrition science’ around blood sugar— by turning the calories we eat into usable energy without the spikes and crashes, the low energy, the cravings, and the buildup of body fat.
They also saw a need to introduce a smaller bar to address children (who couldn’t eat a full bar) and those who just wanted a small snack. The company introduced the Zing 100-calorie bars in 6 flavors.
The 100 calorie snack bars are packed with nutrient-dense, all-natural ingredients and created with the same scientific formulation of low-glycemic carbs, protein, fiber, and healthy fats contained in their other popular, full-size Zing Bars.
With a total of 12 vegan and gluten free flavors under their belt, the company also just released two new flavors – Maple Pecan and Dark Chocolate Cherry Almond. Zing Bars have a nut or seed butter base and contain real dark chocolate, as opposed to the more commonly used compound chocolates.
Gluten-free, soy-free, non-GMO, kosher and with eleven vegan options, Zing Bars are also low-glycemic and contain fiber from chicory or tapioca root and are free from any additives, artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. Zing Bars contain primarily mono- and polyunsaturated fats from nuts and seeds–the good fats that are essential to good health. Zing Bars may be found at Sprouts Market and Whole Foods Markets.
