Attune® Foods Announces Acquisition of Uncle Sam, Erewhon Cereal Brands

Creator of Industry’s First Probiotic Chocolate Bar Expands Portfolio to Full Spectrum of Functional Foods Promoting Digestive Health

SAN FRANCISCO--()--Attune Foods, maker of the world’s first Probiotic Chocolate Bar, announced today that it has acquired the Uncle Sam and Erewhon cereal brands from US Mills, LLC, further expanding its portfolio of great tasting food products that deliver digestive health benefits.

  • Uncle Sam cereal, introduced in 1908, is an all natural, high fiber cereal that contains a unique blend of toasted whole grain wheat flakes and flaxseed. In addition to providing an excellent source of naturally occurring dietary fiber, it is low in sodium and sugar.
  • Erewhon is a leading all natural gluten free cereal brand that is available in more than a dozen delicious varieties. Many varieties are wheat free, low in sodium, low in fat and have long been a staple in gluten free diets.
  • In addition to the purchase of Uncle Sam and Erewhon, Attune Foods also is acquiring Skinner’s Raisin Bran and New Morning cereal and graham cracker brands.

“We are thrilled to add Uncle Sam and Erewhon cereals, two brands firmly rooted in the digestive health space, to the Attune Foods line-up of innovative products. With the addition of these great cereals along with our existing probiotic chocolate and granola bars, Attune Foods has cemented its status as a leading natural digestive health company," said Rob Hurlbut, CEO of Attune Foods. “The American Gastroenterological Association found that nearly half of Americans (46 percent) say that digestive problems affect their day-to-day lives. Attune is committed to delivering a full set of all natural digestive health products to help consumers better address these needs.”

“Attune has dramatically changed the way consumers access probiotics and is clearly committed to offering natural digestive health products to help people feel their best every day,” said Ilya Nykin, managing director of Prolog Ventures and Attune Board chairman. “With this acquisition, Attune is expanding its footprint to a bigger and broader platform, providing a tremendous growth opportunity with our customers and consumers when it comes to digestive health.”

Attune Chocolate and Granola Probiotic Bars contain probiotics that are clinically proven to support a healthy digestive system and boost immunity. Each bar includes 6.1 billion cfus (colony forming units) of the most clinically tested probiotic strains, is an excellent source of calcium and contains less sugar than most yogurts.

Attune’s innovative product line is found in the refrigerated yogurt section of more than 3,000 retailers across the U.S. such as Safeway, Whole Foods, H-E-B, Hannaford, Wegmans, A&P, Bristol Farms and online at www.attunefoods.com.
