Cinnamon Churro Banana Bites and Chili Lime Pineapple Chips—Both Made with GentleDry Technology—Excelled in Recent Shelf Life and Sensory Tests

BEND, Ore., June 24, 2024 – BranchOut Food Inc. (NASDAQ: BOF), a pioneering food technology company and producer of dehydrated fruit and vegetable-based products, is taking the next step in its strategic collaboration with the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command (DEVCOM) to enhance Meals Ready-to-Eat (MRE) through its proprietary GentleDry technology. Following BranchOut Food’s successful six-month shelf-life test and sensory panels, the U.S. Army selected Cinnamon Churro Banana Bites for a subsequent field test with live soldiers, and will likely include the company’s Chili Lime Pineapple Chips pending an additional iteration.

Made with GentleDry technology at low temperatures to preserve flavor and up to 95% of the original nutrition of fresh produce, both products passed the shelf life and sensory tests with excellent scores and offer calorie- and nutrient-density that are both functional and appealing for U.S. Army soldiers. If the products perform well in the field, they may be selected for addition into one or more MREs. The volume for each product selected and incorporated into one MRE will be about 1,500,000 units per year. This volume will increase if multiple items are selected and incorporated into multiple MREs.

“We are excited to advance our partnership with the U.S. Army as our innovative snacks have passed rigorous tests and captured the troops’ interest with their freshness and flavor,” said Eric Healy, CEO of BranchOut Food. “These snacks not only provide the nutritional density needed in the field but also offer the taste of real fruit, which is a welcome addition to the MREs. As we continue to develop new MRE concepts, we are focused on enhancing meal variety and enjoyment for soldiers, reinforcing our commitment to delivering high-quality, nutritious, and enjoyable options.”

Dedicated to offering extraordinary natural snacks and real superfood ingredients, BranchOut Food is committed to delivering products that excel in flavor, color and nutrition, while also providing an exceptional taste experience.
