CHICAGO — Enjoy Life Foods, the #1 brand in the Free-From food industry, is unveiling the new shape of breakfast with its latest innovation to hit shelves, Breakfast Ovals, debuting at Natural Products Expo East. An on-the-go oval designed to deliver simplicity during hectic mornings, Breakfast Ovals are a delicious allergy friendly morning snack loaded with more than 20 grams of whole grains per serving and 12 percent of the recommended daily value of fiber. Soft-baked with all-natural fruit and bursting with flavor, this cookie-inspired breakfast innovation offers the taste consumers crave with the wholesome whole grains and nutritious ingredients they need to start their day. Show attendees are invited to visit the Enjoy Life booth #1039 morning or afternoon to fuel up on two of the four new flavors, including Maple Fig and Berry Medley.
“Part of what makes Enjoy Life a pioneer in the allergy friendly category is our commitment to push the boundaries of modern eating,” said Joel Warady, General Manager and Chief Sales & Marketing Officer at Enjoy Life Foods. “With our new Breakfast Ovals, for example, we used four types of purity protocol gluten-free oats, including steel cut oats, rolled oats, oat flakes and oat flour, to create a unique breakfast biscuit free-from all common allergens that’s deliciously moist, wholesome and most-importantly, convenient.”
Purity protocol is currently the strictest guideline for growing and processing gluten-free oats with conformance requirements covering crop rotation, seed purity, traceability, storage and more. Furthermore, Enjoy Life requires its oat ingredients be tested for gluten down to <5 parts per million (ppm), which is less than gluten-free standards for the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO), totaling <20ppm and <10ppm, respectively.
Available online in November, and on shelf in January, Breakfast Ovals will retail for $5.59 for a five-pack box. Like all Enjoy Life products, each box touts a bright teal color – the hue of food allergy awareness – to help shoppers easily spot Enjoy Life’s safe foods on shelf. The portable breakfast line is available in classic breakfast flavor combinations, including:
- Apple Cinnamon – A timeless pairing of sweet and spice, Apple Cinnamon Ovals offer a satisfying start to any day with an on-the-go morning meal that’s as trust-worthy as it is tasty.
- Chocolate Chip Banana – A yummy blend of fan-favorite Enjoy Life chocolate chips, bananas, and gluten-free whole grains, these wholesome Breakfast Ovals aren’t monkeying around!
- Maple Fig – This seasonal-inspired combination of sweet maple syrup and juicy figs is rich in fiber and packed with cinnamon, nutmeg and clove spices—all the warming flavors of fall offered in one year-round bite!
- Berry Medley – Loaded with blueberries, raspberries and cranberries, these ovals are bursting with the flavor of bright luscious berries picked at the peak of ripeness.

In addition, Breakfast Ovals are Non-GMO Project Verified, Certified Gluten Free, palm oil free, Kosher and Certified Vegan.
