Go Raw Debuts First-of-its-Kind Watermelon Seed Protein Bars at Natural Products Expo West

ANAHEIM, Calif. (Feb. 29, 2016) – Go Raw, the leaders in healthy snacks that are sprouted and raw, will unveil a complete line of plant-based protein bars at Natural Products Expo West booth #2414 from March 10-13 at the Anaheim Convention Center. Grow Sprouted Bars will be the first on the market that derives its pure-plant protein solely from watermelon seeds.

“We are always looking for ways to meet the needs of our consumers, which we believe are seeking highly functional foods that are safe and tasty for the entire family,” said Robert Freeland, CEO of Freeland Foods, Inc. “We're proud to be the only food manufacturer that’s unlocked the protein power of watermelon seeds and put it into four deliciously flavored bars.”

The Grow Sprouted Bars contain no more than eight ingredients, including lemon, cinnamon, cacao, mint and sprouted watermelon seeds. Watermelon seeds are known to have a high concentration of minerals, B vitamins and amino acids as well as work to regulate blood pressure and metabolism. An alternative to synthetic additives, rosemary extract is used to preserve optimum quality, flavor and texture. Each nutritious bar packs 12 grams of protein along with healthy fats and fiber into four delicious flavors: Dark Chocolate, Cinnamon Spice, Mint Chocolate and Zesty Lemon. Sweetened only with organic dates, Grow Sprouted Bars have between 230-240 calories per serving. Go Raw expects to publicly launch the new product in the Fall of 2016.

Go Raw will also host Evening on the Plaza, an Expo West social event complete with healthy snacks, drinks and entertainment by music headliner, The Revivalists. The gathering, which is open to the public, will take place Saturday, March 12 at the Grand Plaza Main Stage from 6-8 p.m.
