Stoats, one of the largest independent manufacturers of cereal bars in the UK, has launched a new range into Sainsbury’s stores nationwide. Its new Stoats+ Immunity Bars, which are gluten-free and plant-based, are available in two flavours: Berry Boost and Chewy Roasted Nut.
Berry Boost: Made with gluten-free wholegrain Scottish oats, dried cranberries and raspberries, sunflower and linseeds for a super tasty snack that satisfies the hungers pangs
Chewy Roasted Nut: Gluten-free wholegrain Scottish oats combine with almond butter, roasted hazelnuts, chia, sunflower and pumpkin seeds for a nutty and nutritious treat with a chewy crunch
Packed with immunity boosting ingredients, each bar contains 100% of the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of vitamins A, B6, B12, C & D, as well as folic acid, iron, zinc and copper – a combination that helps contribute to the normal function of the immune system. Each bar also contains 6 grams of protein, making them the perfect snack to grab on the go, in lunch boxes, or before or after exercise. They are available in multipacks of four 40g bars, RRP £2.50.
In addition, the bars – which are made by hand in small batches using quality ingredients selected by Stoats’ expert bakers – contain no added sugar or palm oil. They are packaged in a compostable wrapper made from renewable wood pulp, inside an FSC accredited outer carton.
The launch of the bars coincides with research demonstrating that over a third (39%) of UK adults now regularly include immune-boosting foods in their diet as a result of the coronavirus outbreak [Mintel 2021].
Stoats marketing director, Olivia Stone, comments: “We’re delighted to see more of our products launching into Sainsbury’s stores and we’re sure they will be a hit with shoppers not just because the bars are gluten free, nutrient-packed and cost-effective, but they’re also as naturally tasty as it gets. Each bar is made from real, high quality plant-based ingredients, which are bursting with big flavours.
“Stoats is also a value and ethics driven brand, our packaging is either compostable or fully recyclable and we keep our manufacturing footprint as light on the earth as possible, making Stoats the perfect choice for conscious consumers who want to eat well and do their bit for the planet.”
All Stoats products are handmade by dedicated bakers, who combine wholesome, natural ingredients with an average of 20 years’ experience to create Stoats bars.
