Hy-Vee announces new foods in supermarket

Excerpts from an article by Beth Freehill in the 1/20/10 Clinton Herald (Iowa)

Hy-Vee is providing customers new foods that combine health and good taste. Fiber, protein, probiotics and omega-3 fats are the latest health trends that have influenced a number of the new products on the list this year.

The following list is the top new foods for 2010.

  1. Earth Grains Thin Buns or Arnold Select Sandwich Thins
  2. Chia seeds
  3. SlimCado Avocado: This avocado has up to half the fat and a third fewer calories than a regular avocado. Another difference is the skin remains green and does not turn black and yields to gentle pressure when ripe. Look for these avocadoes in the produce section.
  4. Kashi Heart to Heart Whole-Grain Crackers with Plant Sterols
  5. Flatout Flatbread & Artisan Fold It Flatbread
  6. Agave Nectar
  7. Dove Miniatures Ice Cream Bars
  8. Greek Yogurt
  9. Jif Omega-3 Peanut Butter
  10. Full Circle Organic Fruit Strips
