Pack Tunch have launched three new flavoured health bars – apple & cinnamon, pineapple & coconut and lemon & lime all of which contain California Raisins. The bars can be found in a range of health and wholefood shops, gyms and sports facilities across the UK and retail at 99p per 45g bar.
The bars are made by blending and pressing no more than eight natural ingredients. California Raisins are chopped and added to the bars to help bind the ingredients as well as add texture and natural sweetness. As 95% of their bars are made from just fruits and nuts they are all full of vitamins and minerals, protein and fibre along with the types of good-carbohydrates that keep you going – longer. The bars contain no sweeteners, binders, preservatives or colourings.
Scottish company, Pack Tunch was founded by brothers, Joe, Dave and Ed Wall who were inspired to create Pack Tunch bars by their own busy lifestyles. Frustrated by the lack of good alternatives on the market the brothers decided to make their own nutritious and delicious bars. The idea behind the name? A meal between breakfast and lunch is brunch, a meal between lunch and tea is Tunch – hence the name Pack Tunch! Simple really.
“We use California Raisins because we value quality ingredients and recognize the high standards the California Raisins have to go through. Plus not only are they so natural, they taste great too!” – Beth Marchant, Sales & Marketing Manager at Packed Tunch California Raisins make the perfect ingredient to incorporate into health bars due to their consistent quality, moisture content and flavour/appearance. These little gems add texture, natural sweetness and the high acid content, low pH and low water activity all work as natural mould inhibitors which help to extend shelf life.
