Driftwood, Texas – A new brand of in-between snack solutions is debuting a line of protein bars that feature simple ingredients. Available in both vegan and non-vegetarian options, the flagship products from BodyBar Protein are positioned as better-for-you alternatives to traditional nutrition bars.
The Texas-based Driftwood brand was founded in 2021 by Ayarpi Reganyan, who struggled for years with IBD. When doctors couldn’t find a solution to her autoimmune condition, she took her health upon herself, first by completely eliminating gluten and then eliminating processed foods, sugar, and more from her diet. After experiencing first-hand how what she was eating directly affected her health, Ms. Rejanian teamed up with food scientists, to experiment with different ingredients, flavors and proteins to develop the first line of BodyBar protein bars.
“I struggled with my health for years and was finally able to get it under control after cleaning up my diet,” she said. “It was a powerful time after so many years of feeling out of control. That’s when I knew there was an opportunity to support people facing similar health challenges that I do and more.”
Made without gluten, additives, artificial colors, added sugars, or natural flavors, the bars come in varieties of cinnamon, apple, sweet cocoa, and chocolate brownie.
