New York, New York – June 25th, 2015 – The premium, Non-GMO snack bar category realized a 14% real increase in dollar sales in 2014, and 50% of consumers are seeking snacks that offer more healthful, better-for-you ingredients than basic nutrition. Toosum’s delicious 100-calorie snack bars are on-trend and made with nutrient-dense (and certified gluten-free!) rolled oats, chia seeds, and other delicious ingredients straight from nature, all with health benefits that go way beyond their good taste. In today’s fast-paced world, 48% of consumers prefer to eat more natural snacks, a 3% increase vs. year ago. Toosum oatmeal bars are all-natural and more healthful than other snack bars due to being low in sugar, certified gluten-free, Non-GMO, and containing heart healthy fiber shown to lower cholesterol and no artificial anything!

Toosum has four flavors of delicious and healthful oatmeal bars: coconut & banana, cranberry & acai, blueberry & greek yogurt, and cherry & plum.
In addition to meeting needs of American consumers, Toosum has a robust business in global emerging markets. The Asia-Pacific region will account for two-thirds of the world’s middle class by 2030. Today China’s urban middle-class population alone, if considered as a country, is larger than the total U.S. population. “Toosum is an early mover in high-growth foreign markets such as China and the Middle East,” said Peter Guyer, Founder and CEO of Toosum. “We aim to establish leadership positions in the low-calorie, gluten-free snack category in these markets which will soon resemble developed markets such as the U.S. and Europe.”
Please visit Toosum at the New York Fancy Food show June 28-30, booth #1873 on Level 3.

We know you’re careful about what you eat at meal times—lots of veggies, healthy protein, complex carbs. But snack time can be tricky because many “healthy” snack bars out there are loaded with sugar and calories or packed with preservatives and other ingredients concocted in a lab, not a kitchen.
