Salba Smart 100-calorie packs

Foods rich in Omega-3s pack a punch in ‘back to school’ lunch

Salba Smart® Natural Products helps parents with healthy, on-the-go snack packs

DENVER (August 14, 2008) — Savvy parents understand the important role Omega-3 fatty acids play in the health, brain development, and behavior of children, but getting kids to eat foods like salmon, flax seeds and walnuts isn’t always easy. Making it easier to sneak good nutrition into lunchboxes this fall, Salba Smart Natural Products offers a full line of tasty snacks made from Salba® - Nature’s Perfect Whole Food. The most nutrient dense variety of Salvia hispanica L, Salba is the richest whole food source of Omega-3 fatty acids and fiber found in nature.

Deficiency in Omega-3s has been linked to ADHD, vision problems, depression and violent behavior in children. According to the Journal of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics, children with ADHD taking supplements of Omega-3 fatty acids: EPA and DHA, showed improvements in central ADHD symptoms like inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity, during a 2007 study. Every serving of Salba provides over 3,000 mg of Omega 3’s and over 5000 mg of dietary fiber. It is also high in antioxidants, protein, calcium and iron.

“Ounce for ounce whole Salba grain provides three times more iron than spinach, 15 times more magnesium than broccoli, and six times more calcium than whole milk,” said Rally Ralston, managing partner of Salba Smart. “Salba grain is the only food that is part of each of the six groups of the USDA Food Guide Pyramid, and we have made it easy for parents to incorporate this essential food into their children’s diet with Salba products that meet the demands of busy, on-the-go lifestyles,” he added.

Salba Smart’s products include ideal lunch box solutions: 100-calorie Bite Size Organic Tortilla Chips (0.7oz); All Natural Whole Wheat Tortillas (10.5oz, 12.4oz, 20.8oz); and Pretzels made with organic flour in Sticks (7oz) and Thin Twisted (7oz). Its Whole Grain (12.7oz) and Ground Salba (6.4oz) can also be added to everyday foods such as cereal, pancakes and smoothies.

Other Salba Smart products include USDA Organic Tortilla Chips in White Corn, Blue Corn and Yellow Corn flavors (8oz); and Organic Salsa in Mild, Medium and Hot flavors (12oz). All products contain 0g of trans fats, and are gluten free (except tortillas and pretzels) and Certified Non GMO.

Salba Smart can be found at Whole Foods Market, Wild Oats, Vitamin Cottage, Wegman’s and other natural foods stores. It can also be ordered online at

I understand the need for Omega 3..etc but I've never understood the 100 calorie packs of anything. To me, it's just the manufacturers playing mind games with consumers.
