Omega Munch, a naturally gluten free – organic fruit and seed snack is perfect for any time of day. Omega Munch combines organic flax seeds, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, and quinoa with delicious raisins, all in a shape convenient for snacking on the go! A low-calorie food, Omega Munch is an excellent source of fiber and provides real fruit, protein, and heart-healthy omega-3s (without that fish oil aftertaste).
Omega Munch doesn’t just provide great nutrition—it also tastes great! Unlike other seed snacks, Omega Munch has a chewy yet crunchy texture and a nutty, fruity flavor. The final formulation for Omega Munch was optimized by a team of Ohio State University food science students. The team was recently a finalist in the Product Development Competition at the 2011 meeting of the Institute of Food Technologists.
