Three New SOYJOY Bars, Enhanced with More Fruit, More Flavor Raisin, Apple and Hawthorn Berry

Otsuka Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd. (Head Office: Tokyo, Japan; President: Tatsuo Higuchi) has announced the September 14, 2015 nationwide release of new Raisin, Apple and Hawthorn Berry of SOYJOY baked soy bars.
Compared to the previous versions, the renewed flavors contain the same volume of whole soybeans*1 but offer a significantly increased amount and variety of fruit*2 . The enhanced fruity texture and distinctive flavors offer an even more delicious and satisfying way to enjoy the nutritional benefits of soy.
Made with nutrition-packed whole soy beans, SOYJOY is baked to make the most of the flavor and texture of the ingredients. Packed full of healthful ingredients, SOYJOY is a smart, delicious way to take advantage of intrinsic nutrients, including vegetable protein and soy isoflavones. SOYJOY is also a low GI food*3, producing a gradual raise in blood sugar, said to be beneficial for weight control.
Otsuka Pharmaceutical will continue to promote SOYJOY as a healthy snack option for busy people who are looking for a boost of nutrition or refreshing change of pace during the course of the day. An Otsuka Pharmaceutical global brand, SOYJOY is available in 11 countries and regions around the world.
