Quest Nutrition launches tortilla style protein chips

Published 30 May 2018

California-based Quest Nutrition has launched tortilla style protein chips to power up snacking.

These savory snacks feature at least nine times the protein of conventional chips and approximately 75 percent lower net carbs, giving consumers craveable snacks that work for them, not against them.

Each bag contains 18-19 grams of protein with only 4 grams of net carbs. These savory tortilla style chips currently come in the top two most popular flavors, Nacho Cheese and Ranch.

Quest Nutrition chief marketing officer Suzanne Ginestro said: "As consumers seek healthier food options, they often feel deprived of eating the snacks they love. With our bars and cookies, we offer many ways to feed sweet cravings, so we are happy to expand our savory options with this new line.

"It is our goal to support consumers on their wellness journey by giving them foods they crave in protein-packed, low-carb options." 

Consumers love for salty snacking continues to grow at a fast rate. Overall, sales of salty snacks have increased 30 percent since 2011, reaching an estimated $11.2 billion in 2016.1 

And today's snackers are hungry for better-for-you snacks that provide all the benefits of a crunchy munch without compromising on taste. With less than 1 gram of sugar and no soy, Quest Tortilla Style Protein Chips are baked, not fried and have the same protein-rich and low net carb profile as all Quest products.

The chips come in two bold flavors:

Nacho Cheese –18 grams of protein, 4 net carbs

Ranch – 19 grams of protein, 4 net carbs

Nacho Cheese and Ranch are available at select retailers and on QuestNutrition.com.
