Muffin Break is proud to announce the arrival of the new Lower Carb muffin range to its growing portfolio of healthy muffin alternatives available in stores now. The range introduces two new exciting flavours: the Lower Carb Berry, Nut and Seeds muffin, and the Lower Carb Macadamia, Mango and Passionfruit muffin, a fusion of fruit and nuts bursting with goodness in every crumb.
Five years in the making and following rigorous nutritional analysis, the new lower carb range has been thoughtfully and lovingly designed for Australians seeking a healthy snack. Balance has been key in its development with a considerate (and delicious) combination of nuts, seeds and yummy fruit teamed with nutritional ‘know-how’ to bring Aussies more of the good stuff. The Lower Carb range is high in nutritional value while being lower in kilojoules, carbs and sugars.
Featuring a variety of nourishing ingredients including chickpea flour, chia seeds, almond meal and natural Greek yoghurt, the new Lower Carb range is full of goodness.
Sharon Natoli, Accredited Practising Dietitian and Director, Food & Nutrition Australia says, “It’s great to see Muffin Break introduce a healthier option as part of their product range, without compromising quality and taste. The Lower Carb option provides 70% less carbohydrate, 75% less sugar and 47-49% less kilojoules compared to a standard Muffin Break muffin. The muffins have also been tested to confirm they have a low GI. This option will be particularly suitable for those who want to manage their total kilojoule intake for the day while still enjoying something sweet when out and about.”
Freshly baked in-store every day using only quality ingredients, Aussies can feel extra good about these tasty treats. The Lower Carb range promotes good health and wellbeing overall as it is also a good source of fibre and protein as well as being low in sodium. The muffins also contain a low proportion of saturated fat.
Gemma Fitzsimons, Muffin Break ANZ Marketing Manager, says, “We recognize that balance is important to our customers and we’re committed to ensuring there is a variety of options for everyone. A lot of time has been taken to create a fresh, great tasting range that customers and Muffin Break can feel good about. We’re really proud to finally bring the Lower Carb muffin to our stores for health conscious Aussies to enjoy.”
Prepare to go nuts for the Berry, Nut & Seeds muffin. Filled with trail seed mix which includes linseed, almonds, raisins, sunflower and sesame seeds, these muffins will help contribute towards your daily nutritional needs. The chia and linseeds in this muffin are a great source of Omega-3s, protein, healthy fats and vitamins and minerals. Baked fresh every morning, this moreish muffin is bursting with delicious goji berries, boysenberry, blackcurrant and apple compote to sweeten even the most sour of days. The goodness factor doesn’t stop there as the army of berries supply antioxidants that help protect cells in the body from damage along with vitamin C and beta-carotene which are both important for a healthy immune system.
For a tropical break, the Lower Carb Macadamia, Mango and Passionfruit muffin is crammed with nourishing and tasty ingredients that help the body stay energised. Containing mango and peaches, which are a great source of vitamins A & C, which in turn help the body absorb iron from food, along with potassium for healthy nerve and muscle function.
