CINCINNATI, Ohio—May 10, 2011—AdvancePierre Foods announced today that it has given its popular Grahamwich sandwich a bold new makeover. Along with a new name and packaging, AdvancePierre Foods is proud to introduce Whole Grain Graham SnackersTM. These new products are a good source of fiber and protein and provide 15 grams of whole grains in each serving.
Whole Grain Graham Snackers are convenient, handheld peanut butter and grape jelly snacks “sandwiched” in between two whole grain graham crackers. The products are individually wrapped to lock in freshness and can be enjoyed as a wholesome meal or snack.
“Parents and school foodservice directors are always looking to provide children with nutritious, great tasting products that are quick and easy to serve—like our Whole Grain Graham Snackers,” said Jill Parker, MS, RD/LD, SNS, dietitian with AdvancePierre Foods. “Whole grains play an important role in a healthy diet, and these kid-friendly products are a simple way to increase daily whole grain servings.”
Experts suggest that including whole grains as part of a balanced diet can help reduce the risk of obesity as well as chronic diseases such as stroke, heart disease, diabetes and cancer. In addition to vitamin B and iron, whole grains provide vitamin E, magnesium and fiber, nutrients often lacking in children’s diets.
Graham Snackers and Whole Grain Graham Snackers are included in AdvancePierre Foods’ Smart PicksTM line—products that contain less sodium, no partially hydrogenated oils and more whole grains than traditional menu items. Both Graham Snackers products are currently available to schools and nationwide through most broadline foodservice distributors. They are also available for purchase through online retailer Market Day.
