Protein in Our Snacks?

Share this

Have you noticed all the new snack foods that are coming out? There are crackers, chips and of course popocorn an old time favorite.

More and more food products are considering the idea of adding more protien to these new food products. If I want to have more protein in my diet I would rather get it from eating foods that I expect to deliver protein. I don’t really care for these snack foods to have protein in them Most of them add soy protein which is NOT a healthy protein it is just a filler.

I wonder how many of you read the ingredient labels?

Since my body reacts badly to SOY I really stay away from it. If it’s an ingredient then I don’t buy it. Unless I am really willing to pay the price for it later.

Why are more products adding protein to the foods?

Looking ahead according to the Hartman Group in Seattle, “Says, naturally occuring protein and fiber will be the draw for the future. Less processed, real food.” Less potato chips? Too bad as I do like Lay Potato chips..

For snack foods in my house, we like Hummas, a variety of flavors, rice crackers, veggie chips or for sure tortilla chips – organic ones with no added fillers. Natural spices.

Are we vegging out? Really adding more veggies and fruits to our diet? I tried just doing this, and I got sick..I am the type of person who likes meat..even though I eat meat, I do select a little more carefully.
