Unilever Bestfoods, part of Anglo-Dutch consumer goods giant Unilever, has said it is to expand its line of low-carbohydrate products in response to good consumer demand.
The company said it is about to roll out another 14 products in its Carb Options range, almost doubling the number of options already available. The Carb Options range includes sauces, marinades, salad dressings, peanut spread, bars and shakes.
The new products, including Carb Options Ketchup from Hellman’s, Carb Options Green Tea from Lipton, Carb Options Hearty Italian-Style Sauce with Sausage from Ragu, Carb Options Instant Noodle Soup from Lipton, and Carb Options Chunky Peanut Spread from Skippy, will begin shipping this week to retailers and will appear next month on store shelves in supermarkets nationwide.
Unilever Bestfoods said more than 30 million Americans are currently limiting their intake of carbohydrates.
