Yoga Bar Success Story
The gap in finding affordable healthy snacking options
Looking at the retail shelves there’s a gap when it comes to healthy, tasty and affordable snacks. And that it is the lack of better options that lead people to make bad choices when it comes to packaged foods. Suhasini and Anindita feel that food is an area that people should not be compromising on – and they need to be able to understand and trust the food that they eat.
“For the past few years a lot of things have changed around us for the better. But an area where the Indian consumer lacks is in the convenience eating space. What we eat is so fundamentally important to our well-being, yet it is an area that we compromise on because of a lack of affordable better options.”
What goes into your favorite Snack Bar?
These genuine healthy nutrition bars are essentially made up of oats, dates, cocoa, almonds, cashews, amaranth, flax seeds, chia seeds, honey, other dried fruits, nuts and seeds. No chemical or artificial flavors used. They use only ingredients which people can see, understand or pronounce. When it comes to sourcing, the key principles they use the best quality ingredients which often lead to sourcing directly from the farmers.
The snack bar contains about 150 – 170 calories, 3-4 gms of protein per serving, a good percentage of dietary fiber, healthy fats (PUFA, MUFA, Omega 3s) and antioxidants. They contain no hydrogenated oils, no processed sugars (white sugars, high fructose corn syrups), no artificial colours or flavors and no chemical preservatives. The ingredients have been chosen to give sustained energy release rather than a candy bar like immediate sugar rush. These bars work really well to replace a missed meal or as an in between snack.
Yoga Bars stands for: energy, calm, love, taste and good health
Why the name Yoga Bars –
“Suhasini and I have practised Yoga for several years now and that has influenced us, especially when setting up the company and how we approach product development. One aspect which holds very strongly with us is that yoga is a continuous practise. It is not so much about the perfect pose as it is about the journey in getting there. And that’s what Yoga Bars is about – making that small change which takes you to a better place.” – Anindita Sampat, co-founder
