Vital Health Foods adds exciting new flavours to snack range

JANUARY 20, 2016

Vital Health Foods, the continent’s largest nutritional supplements manufacturer, has launched two new flavours in its Mini Rice Cakes range. The Beef and Salt & Black Pepper varieties, made from the highest-quality ingredients, are great with dips or on their own.

“Vital’s Mini Rice Cakes are made from GMO-free wholegrain rice and are completely free from azo dyes like tartrazine,” says Andrea du Plessis, Vital Health Foods’ nutrition expert.

Beef and Salt & Black Pepper are the two most preferred potato-crisp flavours, she explains, which is why the company added these varieties to its existing mini rice cakes range. Other flavours in the Mini Rice Cakes range include Balsamic Vinegar & Sea Salt, Cream Cheese & Chives, Creamy Cheddar, Fruit Chutney and Sweet & Spicy Pepper Salsa.

“Snacking is one of the cornerstones of healthy eating,” says Du Plessis.”

“Whether you’re diabetic, trying to lose weight or just looking at improving your diet, snacking is advised as a healthy eating strategy. Small healthy snacks between meals can make a significant contribution to dietary fibre intake and healthy eating habits in general.”

The two new flavours are ideal for summer gatherings, and can be served as is or dressed up. The Beef Mini Rice Cakes are the perfect foil for thin slices of cucumber and dollops of tzatziki, garnished with lemon zest while the Salt & Black Pepper variety goes perfectly a small slice of mozzarella cheese, a fresh basil leaf, a slice of cherry tomato and a few drops of basil pesto.

Selling for R5.99, Mini Rice Cakes can be found at any leading retail outlet. Vital Health Foods also manufactures Vital Corn Cakes and Mini Corn Cakes.
