Cheese Rice Snack
New Style Rice Snack with Cheese
Thanks to the popularity of Hallyu (Korean culture wave), Korean snacks are actively exported overseas. Korean healthy snacks made with rice are receiving a particularly good response in foreign markets.
Rice is a representative carbohydrate food. But, unlike many other grains, rice can prevent obesity because it does not promote insulin secretion. In addition, rice is also good for preventing diabetes as it does not sharply increase the blood sugar level. Chinese consumers buy Korean rice snack as baby foods and American consumers enjoy Korean rice snack because they are gluten-free. Recently, Korean food company Nongshim Co., Ltd. released a new rice snack that contains a representative fermented food, cheese. The product is called “Cheese Rice Snack.”
Enjoy the Simple Taste of Rice and the Softness of Cheese at the Same Time
With Cheese Rice Snack, consumers can get the benefits of rice while enjoying a creamy-soft cheese. The products come as chips that are baked, not fried, so they taste light yet flavorful. Of course, the chips are crunchy and low in calories. What’s more, they contain no trans fats or cholesterol. With this product, consumers can enjoy the taste of cheese as well. To make the cheese taste stronger, the producer uses cheddar cheese and also sprinkles the chips with camembert. An employee of Nongshim Co., Ltd. said, “It is the first rice snack made with cheese. We are putting a lot of effort into developing healthy rice snacks with many delicious flavors based on various ingredients.”
