Kontos Foods Greek Lifestyle Flatbread Offers 15 Grams of Protein, Half the Carbs of Traditional Flatbread

 

Paterson, N.J. – April 3, 2018 – Spring is here and what better way to get into shape for the warmer months, than with protein-packed food that leaves you feeling fuller longer and helps you build muscle. If you want to keep your protein-plant based, you can meet your daily, recommended protein allowance with the countless varieties of beans and nut-based products available in stores. Kontos Foods, U.S.-based manufacturer of traditional Greek and Mediterranean foods, has a flatbread solution that is part of a vegetarian, protein-rich 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 (slightly less than traditional Kontos flatbread)
  • 180 calories per serving (vs. 230 calories for traditional Kontos flatbread)

Many dietitians say that many Americans aren’t getting enough protein everyday, or that they’re not eating protein throughout the day, instead of consuming it at one big meal, such as dinner.

“Eating a Greek Lifestyle Flatbread sandwich with a falafel filling is a perfect, protein-packed, vegetarian meal,” said Warren Stoll, marketing director of Kontos Foods. “We use soy flour in the Greek Lifestyle Flatbread to achieve a higher protein, lower carb. bread, but at the same time, like all our flatbread, it is ‘Hand-Stretched for Fluffiness™’, contains no trans fat, and is 100% vegetarian.”
