Mediterra line extends Mediterranean Diet meal-replacement bars
NEW YORK — Mediterra, the first company to introduce all-natural nutrition bars inspired by the Mediterranean Diet, recently added two new yogurt and oat flavors, including lemon & walnuts and fig & almonds. With these new flavors, Mediterra now offers four Yogurt & Oat bars that also include cherry & pistachio and apricot & pistachio.
"These new flavors also adhere to the Mediterranean Diet, considered by experts to be one of the healthiest ways to eat," stated Telemaque Lavidas, founder of Mediterra. "Like all Mediterra nutrition bars, the new Yogurt & Oat bars will fundamentally change a person's idea of a snack bar as they are loaded with fiber, nutrients and vitamins instead of complex sugars and saturated fats."
The new bar ingredients are consumer and dietitian favorites. For example, walnuts are rich in omega-3 fats and contain higher amounts of antioxidants than most other foods. Figs are high in fiber and a good source of several essential minerals and vitamins, while almonds contain healthy fats, fiber, protein, magnesium and vitamin E.
Like the original, the new Yogurt & Oat bars are bottom covered with yogurt-style coating, 1.6 ounces, all-natural, non-GMO, gluten-free, certified kosher and contain six grams of protein. The MSRP is $1.99.
