Kay’s Naturals Lemon Herb Protein Chips

Author: Healthnuttxo

As someone who really doesn’t eat meat, I really depend on eggs and dairy to get my protein, as well as soy products like tofu. I love when I find tasty, high protein products that are natural and good for you, too!

I got some products from Kay’s Naturals, like the Protein Chips in Lemon Herb flavor.According to the package, these Protein Chips are gluten free, and have 10 grams of protein per serving. I’ll be honest, I was a bit reluctant to try this flavor. Lemon Herb? It didn’t sound like it was going to be as tasty, but it was!

First I was impressed with the portion size. a 1.5 ounce bag (which did have 1.5 servings in it) had a LOT of protein chips!Each chip is sort of in the shape of a rectangle, and has a wave to it. They dont really look identical to the ones depicted on the front. They were light, airy and crispy in texture. The taste was slightly sweet, slightly spicy, and quite salty. I could certainly taste the lemon- it reminded me of a tangy lemon peel or lemon zest, accompanied with a oniony/garlicy flavor.  Actually they kind of reminded me of sour cream and onion chips, with a little bit of sweetness from the lemon!

Overall, these are unique, and quite good! They are a bit high in sodium, but low in fat and calories, and high in protein.  4 stars

1 ounce (30 grams) is 110 calories, 3.5 grams of fat, 14 grams of carbohydrates, 3 grams of fiber, 0 grams of sugar, and 10 grams of protein.

Kay's Naturals Protein Cereal

Protein Cereal? What on EARTH is that? Read on, bloggies! 🙂

Kay’s Naturals is a brand that makes better alternatives to snacks, packed with nutritious protein and fiber for satiety.  They make a whole assortment of snacks and cereals to please all, and they are mostly Gluten Free.

I was sent some products to try from Kay’s Naturals, including the Protein Cereal in Apple Cinnamon and French Vanilla flavors to try.  The cereals have no trans fats, are gluten free, and have 9 grams of protein per 100 calorie serving (1 oz of cereal). Each of the cereals are ring shapes and have a light and crunchy texture.

Apple Cinnamon- These were very good. They tasted like a combination of apple cinnamon flavors with a hint of a vanilla flavor as well. They had a good amount of sweetness too to accompany the cinnamon flavor, and I liked the little pieces of dehydrated apples on each piece. They were addicting, and curbed my hunger until dinner time,

French Vanilla– Yum! I liked these better than the apple cinnamon variety, but I enjoyed both for the most part. They were a little bit sweeter than the apple cinnamon, and had a light vanilla and cinnamon flavor. I also tasted just a touch of honey to these crispy pieces. They paired nicely with my yogurt 🙂

Overall, these deserve 4 stars. You get a nice portion of cereal to munch on for only 100 calories, and you get 9 grams of  protein per serving!

Apple Cinnamon- Soy protein isolate, yellow corn flour, rice flour, tapioca starch, inulin, pea fiber, natural honey, evaporated cane juice, dehydrated apple pieces, canola oil, cinnamon powder, vanilla extract, natural flavoring, baking powder, double-acting leavening agents, salt.
