Optimum Nutrition (“ON”) maker of sports nutrition products, including confectionary Cake Bites, cookie-like Protein Wafers and fruity ESSENTIAL AMIN.O. ENERGY™ drinks – enters new territory with the introduction of its first savoury ready-to-eat protein snack.

ON Protein Ridges are crunchy, baked whey protein squares coated in savoury spices.

“Optimum Nutrition constantly innovates to satisfy tastes,” said Sarah Teeter, Director of Marketing for ON in a press release. “Not everyone is looking to satisfy a sweet tooth – Protein Ridges are the perfect anytime snack when you want something satisfyingly crunchy with a savoury kick, and a great protein-rich alternative to traditional chips or crackers.”

Each one-bag serving of ON Protein Ridges delivers 15 grams of whey protein, 170 calories and, depending on the flavour, two to three grams of sugar and 14 to 16 grams of carbohydrates. Protein Ridges are gluten-free and available in four flavours: Sour Cream, BBQ, Honey Sriracha and Cheese.


“Protein Ridges are just the latest addition to a growing family of ready-to-eat and ready-to-drink products from ON,” said Teeter. “People want convenient options that also feed their desire to make good nutritional choices.”

ON Protein Ridges are available at sports nutrition retailers and online.
