Purely Elizabeth Debuts First-to-Market Adaptogenic Grain-Free Superfood Bars and Antioxidant Powdered Vibrant Oats

purely elizabeth pr 2 2018

Bold, new products from the health-focused food company combine trend-forward ingredients with on-the-go convenience

BOULDER, Colo., Feb. 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Purely Elizabeth, a leading food brand committed to creating delicious, innovative and nutrient-rich products, launches a new line of Grain-Free Superfood Bars and Single-Serve Vibrant Oats. As with all Purely Elizabeth products, these new items are gluten-free, non-GMO Project Verified, vegan and contain organic ingredients, ancient grains, and superfoods.

“From the beginning, our goal at Purely Elizabeth has been to elevate familiar foods by combining nutrient-rich and superfood ingredients into delicious recipes,” says Elizabeth Stein, founder and CEO of Purely Elizabeth. “These latest launches incorporate trend-forward ingredients in convenient, accessible products.”

Purely Elizabeth’s new Grain-Free Superfood Bars are the first-of-its-kind on the market and one of the first packaged products to contain adaptogenic extracts. The bars are powered by Reishi – a known adaptogenic superfood that helps the body balance stress and supports healthy immune function, detoxification, and overall health – as well as nutrient-rich, elevated ingredients including cashew butter, coconut oil, hemp seeds, cashews, pumpkin seeds, almonds, and chia seeds. With only 6g-7g of sugar, the bars are lightly sweetened with Coconut Sugar and Coconut Nectar. Flavors of the paleo-friendly bars include Coconut Cashew, Banana Nut Butter, Peanut Butter Cinnamon, and Chocolate Sea Salt.

In addition, the Single-Serve Vibrant Oats bring the trend of bright, colorful “unicorn” food to life and inject a spirit of playfulness into the dated oatmeal category. The oats come in three delicious flavors – Raspberry Pitaya, Blueberry Lemon with blue spirulina, and Coconut Turmeric. Each flavor is powered by a colorful, cutting-edge ingredient – turmeric, blue spirulina and pitaya – and a base of gluten-free oats, quinoa, amaranth, flax, and chia. For added crunch, the oats are topped with Purely Elizabeth’s award-winning Original Ancient Grain Granola and are the only single-serve oatmeals on the market with a granola topper.

As of February 2018, the new Grain-Free Superfood Bars and Vibrant Oats will be available on www.purelyelizabeth.com as well as on store shelves at select retailers nationwide.

About Purely Elizabeth
Purely Elizabeth was founded in 2009 by Elizabeth Stein, a certified holistic nutrition counselor. Realizing that the superfoods and ancient grains she was recommending weren’t readily available on store shelves, Stein created a first-of-its-kind line of gluten-free, ancient grain granola that was an instant hit among consumers. As founder and CEO, she continues to maintain a clear vision and strict dietary guidelines for Purely Elizabeth, while striving to innovate with products like grain-free granola, probiotic granola, oatmeal, bars and more. Dedicated to staying one step ahead of the curve, Purely Elizabeth continues to introduce innovative products that make it easier than ever for busy individuals and families to start each morning off on the right foot. Stein previously released a number one Amazon best-selling cookbook, Eating Purely, which further illustrates her dedication to making health a priority, but never an inconvenience.
