Denver, CO – October 14, 2020 – Award winning industry veterans Brad Pyatt and wife Stephanie Pyatt create Award winning healthy indulgence vegan protein bar winning the 2020 Mindful Award for The Best Vegan Bar Of The Year. The brand of vegan protein bars developed by TRUWOMEN® has been the result of a collaboration between ex-NFL athlete, Brad Pyatt, and his wife, Stephanie.
“Before founding TRUWOMEN® with my husband in 2015, Brad, I would often eat a chalky protein bar, only to have my stomach in knots from the conglomeration of low-quality ingredients like whey and sugar alcohols,” said Stephanie Pyatt. “Inspired by how underserved women are in the protein space, I wanted to create a snack that women feel proud to eat and share.”
Mindful Awards, an independent recognition platform highlighting conscious companies and products that mindfully make waves in the ever-expanding world of consumer-packaged goods, today announced the winners of the organization’s second annual awards program.
All nominations were evaluated by an independent panel of experts within the consumer-packaged goods industry, with the winning products and companies selected based on a variety of criteria, ranging from brand principles, environmental impact, health, taste, and transparency.
Pyatt and his wife have been working since 2015 to create nutritious snack and meal bars that also feature great taste. The nutritional bars that have been nominated are under the TRUWOMEN brand, part of the TRU Brands, Inc. portfolio. Only 200 calories, the bars are made with plant proteins encompassing brown rice, cassava and roasted almonds and taste like a favorite dessert.
