Bannock Outdoors today launched the first healthy backpacking food line wholly developed with the health conscious individual or family in mind, with meals and desserts that include natural ingredients, the highest amount of protein and fiber, and the overall largest portions of food per serving. As a result, anyone actively engaged in outdoor activities — hikers, campers, backpackers, etc. — can have tasty, healthy and filling meals that will provide more energy and stamina to support their active lifestyle.
Later this year, the company will add innovative camping equipment (e.g., hammocks, stoves, backpacks, solar lamps, chairs) to improve the overall camping experience.
Bannock’s convenient, well-balanced backpacking meals — sold in freeze-dried pouches that only require boiling water — include 55 non-GMO natural “superfoods” along with a unique blend of fruits, vegetables, grains, beans and herbs with every serving. No enhancers are added. Bannock’s breakfasts and desserts are also sweetened with Kakato,™ a natural, high-fiber and low-calorie sweetener.
“As a father of five fairly picky eaters, I know how hard it is to find foods that everyone likes but are still healthy, convenient and satisfying,” said Phil Cox, CEO, Bannock. “That can be even more difficult while camping or hiking, something we love to do as a family. Our goal in launching Bannock was to create meals that blend nutrition, taste and convenience for any camper, backpacker and hiker on the go, meals that are satisfying and provide the energy required so you can last through a long hike or hours of fishing in the creek.”
“These are the meals my entire family will eat,” Cox added. “There’s no guilt about the breakfast for dinner or desserts we all love because they are completely clean and chalk full of healthy ingredients!”
