The snack industry is constantly reinventing how we munch, and Optimum Nutrition (ON) is focusing some of their innovation on vegan consumers. Most of their products contain dairy, but the sweet new ON Nature Bites are dairy-free, and touted as plant-based. They’re also low sugar and packed with dairy-free protein.
