For those times when you don’t have the time to prepare and eat a full healthy meal, nutritionist Teri Rose has created Wellies, a meal replacement bar. “Wellies are a true on-the-go filling meal,” Rose says. Consumers can purchase two conveniently sized bars. The ingredients in Wellies Country Oatmeal, such as flax, honey, and egg whites are all sustainably grown in Minnesota and surrounding states.
“AURI was invaluable,” said Rose. AURI Food scientist Charan Wadhawan assisted Rose in product flavor enhancements, doing nutritional analysis, a shelf-life study, and answering all the questions Rose had. Ed Wene, AURI scientist also assisted Rose with microbial testing.
Wellies are available online at www.eatwellies.com. Rose is also working on a “cross-marketing relationship” with her ingredient suppliers to market Wellies. Rose, who plans to expand her product line, says she loves offering nutritious meals made with quality food ingredients.
