About this project

Salad shouldn't leave you hungry.

It sounds so simple, yet how many of us have eaten a salad only to binge on snacks a couple hours later?  

We kept finding ourselves in this unhealthy cycle, and knew something had to change. We love to eat healthy, but not at the expense of feeling hungry. That’s why we created something that would make our salads more filling, delicious, and nutritious: HYP Salad Topper.

What is HYP Salad Topper? 

HYP Salad Topper is a high protein salad dressing that’s organic, non gmo, vegetarian, and gluten free. Packing 10g of protein per 2fl oz, HYP Salad Topper comes in portable single serve pouches so you can stay full on the go. We’ve developed three distinct and delicious flavors, that are also low carb with 0 added sugars.

Why did we make this?

We’re committed to living a healthy lifestyle and for us that means eating a lot of salads and vegetables. We wanted something that would make our plant based meals keep us full for longer. But we didn’t want our solution to sacrifice taste or nutrition. All the dressings we usually see in the grocery store contain loads of saturated fats and sugars while adding no nutritional or functional value.

So we started talking to other healthy, active people to see what they wanted from a salad dressing. We talked to fitness studio owners, health food experts, and everyday people on-the-go throughout product development to make sure we designed our salad dressing with you in mind. We started off with the idea of high protein, but wanted to make our dressing more accessible to health conscious consumers like ourselves That’s why we only use organic ingredients, and tirelessly worked to make our recipes vegetarian, gluten free and low sugar.

Where you come in:

By supporting our Kickstarter project, you can help us achieve our mission of making healthy eating easy, delicious, and convenient. Specifically, we’ll be using funds to find a packaging manufacturer so we can expand our product lines and develop new flavors. For your generous support, you will receive the following:

 $15,000 is our minimum goal for fulfillment, but we hope to raise much more. Help us do so and we will unlock extra flavors for backers to enjoy upon fulfillment. If you are as excited about extra flavors as we are, share our campaign with friends via email and social media. We’ll be eternally grateful and also in the kitchens, cooking up our next flavors for you to enjoy!”

 

Risks and challenges

Scalability

So far, the largest batch of HYP that we have produced was not large enough to satisfy the growing demands of our family and friends. One thing that we are excited to undertake during this process is upscaling our production. While it will be a challenge, with your support we feel more than confident in rising to the task.

Production Costs

Currently, our dressing is prepared fresh and shipped refrigerated. Unfortunately, that means expensive shipping procedures, but with funding we can research more ways to improve the shelf stability of our products. That way we can get HYP to you as fast and conveniently as possible while maintaining the wholesome integrity of our product.
