Phenolaeis recently introduced First Date’s Date & Oat Bites, a clean label chewy granola product – available for private labeling – with best-in-class ingredients that serve consumers’ unmet wellness needs. Phenolaeis targeted this application after realizing there was consumer demand for on-the-go snacks with mood and energy benefits for today’s hectic and stressful times.
With First Date, Phenolaeis has spearheaded the creation of the next level of better-for-you energy snacks. The chewy granola bites are gluten-free, non-GMO and trans-fat free. They superfuel the body with healthy fats, fibers and nutrients. This base formula is shelf stable for six months without the need for preservatives.

Dates are sweet, flavorful contributors of antioxidants, carotenoids, flavonoids and phenolic acid as well as fiber, potassium and protein. They also contain magnesium, phosphorus, calcium and B-vitamins. Dates are part of a “Powered by Palm” combo because they complement one another. They have a larger number of polyphenols. The ones they have in the highest concentrations are ones that Palm Fruit Extract doesn’t have; the polyphenols lowest in dates are the ones that Palm Fruit Extract does have.
