Kashi® introduced GOLEAN Clusters Vanilla Pepita Cereal and GOLEAN Plant Powered Bars. With nutritious ingredients like ancient grains, nuts, seeds and pulses, these new offerings deliver complete plant protein and a gluten free nutritional punch for whole body health.
Kashi has always been a firm believer that eating more plants is a catalyst for a healthy life and the message is resonating. This year, the US Dietary Guidelines for Americans focused on eating more nutrient-dense and plant-based foods, with fruits, vegetables, and whole grains provided as key examples. There are also a number of organizations increasingly advocating for a healthy lifestyle that focuses on plant-based eating. Diet plays an important role especially in active lifestyles, and plant-based foods in the right combination can be a great way to get the nutrition bodies need to perform, including complete protein. The new GOLEAN products offer a unique combination of nutritious ingredients for those who seek out plant-based foods to fuel their performance without soy or gluten.
Crispy, Crunchy Clusters of Plant-Based Goodness
Kashi GOLEAN Clusters Vanilla Pepita Cereal puts a new, progressive spin on the satisfying taste and texture of GOLEAN. Featuring a tasty blend of plant-powered ingredients that simply #GoTogether, like popped sorghum, rolled red beans, pea crisps, nutty pepitas and real vanilla, this light and crispy cereal provides inherent, balanced nutrition you'd expect from nature – such as good fats, fiber and phytonutrients. And with 9 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber, it provides great nutrition to support your active lifestyle.
Plant Powered Bars in Next-Level Flavors
Kashi GOLEAN Plant Powered Bars are waking up taste buds with four unique flavors: Salted Dark Chocolate & Nuts; Honey Pecan Baklava; Dark Chocolate Cashew Chia; and Peanut Hemp Crunch. Each bar is made with a blend of chewy grains, crunchy nuts, seeds and pea crisps topped with a smooth nut butter, or sunflower seed butter layer for a multi-sensory experience. Each Plant Powered bar delivers 8 grams of protein, 4 grams of fiber and nourishing goodness that you can take wherever you go.
Cracking the Code on Protein & Balance
In order to be considered complete, a protein must contain all nine essential amino acids needed for the body to function. Not only has Kashi cracked this code in its GOLEAN recipes by bringing together the right plant-powered ingredients, but the new foods also provide essential nutrients for healthy lifestyles such as fiber and iron – without relying on soy or gluten-based ingredients.
