|All Doctor's CarbRite Diet Bars Are Now Lab Certified Gluten Free
10, 2003 - Universal Nutrition, a New Jersey based health nutrition and
sports supplement manufacturer, announced that its line of sugar free
bars and candy, the Doctor's CarbRite Diet line, is now lab certified
gluten free. The Doctor's CarbRite Diet bars are a perfect healthy
snack that contains no hydrogenated oils, no trans fats, no
preservatives, no artificial sweeteners or flavors.
People with celiac disease cannot tolerate gluten protein, which is
found in wheat, rye, barley, and possibly oats. Celiac disease is a
digestive disease that damages the intestines and interferes with
absorption of essential nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, and
protein from food. Decreased absorption of nutrients can result in
vitamin deficiencies and even more serious health problems including
intestinal cancer, osteoporosis, anemia, and seizures.
A gluten free diet is considered to be the only effective treatment for
celiac disease. Most grain, pasta, cereal and other foods containing
wheat, rye, barley, and possibly oats must be avoided. Following a
gluten free diet can help promote healthy intestinal environment.
The Doctor's CarbRite Diet bars can now be used as a part of gluten
free diet. The Doctor's CarbRite Diet Bars are also perfect for those
who restrict sugar intake and need to maintain balanced insulin levels.
CarbRite Diet bars can be found in fine health food stores.
