Following the US Congressional Report and the public's concerns with contaminants like heavy metals in baby cereals, Else Super Cereal for babies is the first and only alternative with the Clean Label Project Purity Award Certification. Retailer demand for the product line is soaring, and it will be available for purchase this week on Amazon, followed by other retailers and elsenutrition.com.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ELSE NUTRITION HOLDINGS INC. (BABY) (BABYF) (0YL.F) ("Else" or the "Company"), announced the release of its plant-based Else Super Cereal for babies, furthering the brand's mission to provide families with sustainable, dairy-free alternatives of complete nutrition products for toddlers and kids. Entirely plant-based, organic, non-GMO, and made with real whole foods, the four-flavor range of Else Super Cereal now offers parents a real alternative to today's standard baby cereals. Else Super Cereal provides a unique combination of balanced nutrition, gluten-free carbohydrates, high-quality plant proteins, with all nine essential amino acids, healthy fats, and 20+ essential vitamins and minerals.
Else Super Cereal is the first and only baby cereal line in the U.S. granted the Clean Label Project Purity Award, which tests products for over 400 impurities, including heavy metals like arsenic, lead, cadmium, and others. Else uses the cleanest ingredients, all sourced from the U.S. and Europe, and has developed an innovative proprietary ingredient processing method to ensure the highest level of purity and whole ingredients for its baby nutrition.
"We've heard the resounding need and demand from parents and pediatricians for a clean label baby cereal," said Hamutal Yitzhak, CEO and Co-Founder of Else Nutrition. "For many babies, the introduction of baby cereal is their first exposure to foods other than breast milk or infant formula, underscoring the importance of pure and clean options packed with nutrition. The launch of Else Super Cereal reinforces our mission to lead the clean, healthy revolution for babies and children. Else is building a portfolio of nutrition products that meets feeding needs starting as early as infancy," she added.
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, breastmilk or formula alone may not support an infant's caloric and nutrition needs after six months. Adding foods into the diet is essential for optimal growth and cognitive development. Else Super Cereal for babies is a good source of iron, providing 15 percent of the recommended daily value for babies while maintaining a low sugar content. Else Super Cereal is free from common allergens, including milk and soy, and is also free of gluten, corn syrup, artificial ingredients, and preservatives. It can be given to infants aged six months and older and conveniently served by mixing with warm liquid (breast milk, formula, or water), available in original, vanilla, mango and banana flavors.
"Parents are looking for healthy options and want more nutritional density without worrying about high levels of heavy metals, pesticides and plastic," said Jaclyn Bowen, Executive Director of Clean Label Project. "Else Nutrition's latest offering highlights the brand's commitment to innovation and cleaning up the baby food industry. It also gives parents of infants increased peace of mind when introducing first foods into their child's diet."
Consumers will be able to purchase Else Super Cereal in April on Amazon.com, followed by additional online retailers and www.elsenutrition.com. The product will then become available more broadly, including in local retailers. The suggested on-shelf retail price per 7oz pouch is $6.99.
