Kontos Foods Greek Lifestyle Flatbread Packs a Nutritional Punch With Half the Carbs, Twice the Protein of Traditional Flatbread

Paterson, N.J. – Jan. 9, 2018 –If you’re starting 2018 on a diet like millions of people around the world are—dietitians recommend the best success will not only come by eating smaller portions, but also in reading food labels and swapping out healthier versions of food you might normally eat. High-fiber, low-carb wraps are a common substitute for bread on many diets. But once in awhile you crave bread, and Kontos Foods, U.S.-based manufacturer of traditional Greek and Mediterranean foods,
has a solution that won’t derail your diet: Kontos Greek Lifestyle Flatbread. It has:

• 15 grams of protein (nearly twice the amount in traditional Kontos flatbread)
• 20 grams of carbohydrates (half the amount of traditional Kontos flatbread)
• 8 grams of fiber (four times the amount of traditional Kontos flatbread)
• 2 grams of sugar (less than traditional Kontos flatbread)
• 180 calories per serving (approx. one third less than traditional Kontos flatbread)

According to nutrition experts, eating foods high in protein and fiber leave you feeling fuller throughout the day, which can help you achieve your diet goals.

“Greece and the Mediterranean region hold long traditions promoting healthy eating,” said Warren Stoll, marketing director of Kontos Foods. “Kontos formulated its Greek Lifestyle Flatbread to have similar attributes of Greek yogurt, which is lower in sugar, carbs and calories, but rich in protein. We use soy flour to achieve this, but at the same time, like all our flatbread, the Greek Lifestyle is ‘Hand-Stretched for Fluffiness™’, contains no trans fat, and is 100% vegetarian. And the best part, your kids won’t even know the difference.”
