Planet Organic launches gut-friendly probiotic snack bar


Expertly developed by Planet Organic’s product development team, the brand’s new Biolive Crunch Bars each contain a whopping 1 billion colony forming units (CFU) of the spore-forming probiotic bacteria strain, Bacillus coagulans GBI-30, 6086. Unlike many probiotics, this patented strain has undergone extensive R&D and is proven to withstand heat, manufacturing, shelf life and even stomach acid so that it can be effective in the gut.

Gut health is a growing trend and more and more consumers are choosing to add probiotic gut-friendly foods like sauerkraut, kefir and kombucha to their diets in order to improve digestion, immune support, mood and much more.

Planet Organic’s Biolive Crunch Bars deliver a functional dose of gut-friendly probiotics in each bar, making them so much more than a delicious snack bar.

Completely vegan and gluten-free, these bars are also free from refined sugar and have a scrumptiously crunchy centre with a smooth, raw chocolate coating.

The crunch comes from omega-rich seeds and buckwheat, a gluten-free seed which is high in plant-protein and fibre, meaning that these bars really rack up the healthy credentials.

Unlike conventional chocolate, the bars’ luscious raw chocolate coating is vegan and provides a bucketload of antioxidants and vitamins, like magnesium and iron. And to top it off, raw cacao is known to be a source of serotonin and tryptophan – aka nature’s happiness chemicals!

Available in three mouth-watering flavours, best-selling Salted Almond is naturally rich in vitamin E, while Goji & Pumpkin Seed has a turbo boost of antioxidants thanks to the juicy red berries. The moreish Mulberry Spirulina bar features a dose of the bright green freshwater algae which is well known for its superfood profile. Rich in B vitamins, iron and anti-inflammatory gamma linolenic acid (GLA), this superfood gives a whole new meaning to eating your greens!

Launched in Planet Organic at the beginning of August, sales for Biolive Crunch Bars are already well into the thousands and have far exceeded sales of any of the other 150 snack brands stocked at Planet Organic. Raw chocolate continues to be a strong category for the retailer, with sales of antioxidant-rich raw chocolate far outselling conventional chocolate.

Given their stellar health credentials, it’s not hard to see why Planet Organic’s Biolive Crunch Bars have become an instant best-seller.

The bars are available at Planet Organic stores across London. The bars retail for £2.50 but are currently on promotion for £2 (until 30/09/18).
