We love to try new foods. Some are great. Some don’t measure up and some become staples in our kitchen. See what you think.

munkpack_roof-snow-300Munk Pack makes ready-to-eat oatmeal-fruit squeeze snacks for adults. The packages are a larger version of the portable, spouted, squeeze packs kids love. The concept behind Munk Pack snacks is to provide a portable food that could be used as a quick breakfast, a workout supplement or healthy snack when on-the-go.

Munk Pack is available in three flavors. Each flavor comes in a 4.2-ounce pouch.

 

Apple Quinoa Cinnamon: 80 calories, 1 gram fat, 2 grams protein, 17 grams carbohydrate, 75 milligrams of potassium and 4 milligrams of sodium.

Blueberry Acai Flax: 100 calories, 2 grams fat, 2 grams protein, 21 grams carbohydrate, 194 milligrams of potassium and 6 milligrams of sodium.

Raspberry Coconut: 100 calories, 2.5 grams fat, 2 grams protein, 20 grams carbohydrate, 192 milligrams of potassium and 7 milligrams of sodium.

Munk Pack was launch in the summer of 2014. The flavors are all Certified Gluten-Free, non-GMO Project Verified (no genetically modified ingredients), and kosher (OU). The oats are third party audited and have confirmed levels of less than 10 ppm which is less than the FDA standard for a gluten-free ingredient. We are pleased to see that Munk Pack lists the potassium level for each flavor. This mineral is not required on nutrition labels but many consumers need to know how much potassium they are eating and this value is helpful when provided.

Munk Pack participates in the 1% for the Planet program. Supporting companies donate 1% of their sales directly to the sustainabilityoriented nonprofits of their choosing.
