Product Snapshot: Two food industry veterans have announced the launch of Farm&Oven Snacks, Inc., a Boulder, Colorado-based snack brand. The company was founded by Kay Allison and Mike Senackerib whose innovations for big food companies have generated billions of dollars in revenue. Farm&Oven’s initial product line includes Bakery Bites that deliver 40 percent of the recommended daily vegetable intake, up to 35 grams of fiber per serving and contain one billion probiotics per serving. The Bakery Bites include three bite-sized pieces per serving and are available in four flavors, including Beet Dark Chocolate, Carrot Cinnamon, Pumpkin Maple Pecan and Zucchini Lemon Poppy Seed.
“Farm&Oven is truly a personal passion for me inspired by my autistic daughter who wouldn’t let a vegetable cross her lips,” says Kay Allison, co-founder, Farm&Oven. “I tried many things to get her to eat more vegetables and found that including them in a snack or meal she enjoyed was the answer. I knew that if we created something that was delicious, healthy and had a soft, moist texture it would appeal not only to picky eaters but to anyone – kids and adults alike - looking for a convenient, nutritious snack.”
Each Farm&Oven Bakery Bite contains two servings of vegetables per bite and one billion CFU’s of GanedenBC30® (Bacillus coagulans GBI-30, 6086) live probiotics per serving, which helps support a healthy immune system and the digestive system.
“After many years of working with big food companies, I know that consumers are snacking more often and are focused on getting more vegetables into their diets,” says Mike Senackerib, co-founder, Farm&Oven. “Seventy percent of people want to eat more vegetables and 74 percent experience discomfort with digestion, which is where we focused Farm&Oven -- to deliver a product that tastes great and provides nearly half of the recommend daily vegetables, high fiber and probiotics.”
Farm&Oven Bakery Bites are non-GMO and are made with traditional baking ingredients, vegetables and no added preservatives. Four varieties of Bakery Bites are available at farmandoven.com for $2.39 per serving, 5 servings per box for $11.95 and will be available on Amazon in 2018.
