HAPPYBABY organic finger foods have gone gluten free

July 9th, 2010 by Jennifer Harris


HAPPYBABY PUFFS

HAPPYBABY has added two gluten-free varieties to its organic HAPPYBABYPUFFS line.

These Puffs are the first melt-in-your-mouth organic finger food for toddlers that helps them to learn self-feeding and they are the only gluten-free puffs on the market.  The puffs are rich in vitamin D and are the only baby snacks with added vitamin B and calcium.  They contain half the sugar of similar products and are free of artificial colors/flavors and GMOs.  (more…)


Gluten-free snack foods are often lamented to be nutritionally lacking as many are packed with sugar and empty starches. One company has consistently bucked the trend by providing tasty, healthy, nutrient-rich snack foods and cereals that are also low fat and high in fiber.

Kay’s Naturals has built their reputation on providing all natural, nutritionally balanced snacks that are also gluten-free.

Now the company is adding Kay’s Cookie Bites to its best-selling lines of gluten-free snack foods and cereals. The Cookie Bites come in two flavors, Cinnamon Almond Cookie Bites and Honey Almond Cookie Bites, and are available in 5 oz. boxes or 1.75 oz. snack bags.

Kay’s describes their Cookie Bites as ultra nutritious, totally delicious and absolutely satisfying.

We agree.

When we tasted them, we found them to be sweet, flavorful and crispy. Gluten-free, casein-free, protein rich, fiber rich and made from natural ingredients makes them a good (and worry-free) snack during work or travel and perfect for those times when you’re running late and need something more filling than crackers or carrot sticks.

Marshmallows remind many of us of our childhood - whether it was roasting them by the fire or adding them to a steaming cup of hot chocolate. But Plush Puff takes marshmallows to a whole new level.

These marshmallows are not only gluten-free, they contain no corn syrup and use brown rice syrup instead. Plus, they are fat free so you know that they can't be too bad for you. (more…)

March 15th, 2010 by Marissa Carter

 

It appears to be cookie season! There are cookie sales going on for Girl Scouts, Kansas City area schools, and 4-H clubs. Looking at all of those tasty offerings is enough to bring a tear to any gluten free eye because they are off limits. Well, wipe that tear away! Here is a solution to the I-can’t-order-these-cookies-because-they’re-full-of-gluten blues.

The recipe for these peanut butter sandwich cookies comes to us from Florida, from Elizabeth Signer (A.K.A The Fat Boxer) to be exact. The recipe comes with many assurances that these cookies are so much better than the ones you can buy that you won’t be missing anything. (more…)

If this product had existed when I was a kid, I would probably be a healthier person today! For all you parents out there who have kids that love the "usual" gelatin snack product, but cringe when you think about the ingredients, fear no more.

cool_cups_orangeYou now have vegan Cool Cups. Cool Cups come in several flavors. At the Whole Foods near my house, I bought the orange, black cherry and peach mango. (more…)

Jennies Macaroons Adds New Flavor To Gluten-Free Line

March 12th, 2008 by John Libonati

New all-natural chocolate macaroons debut at Natural Products Expo West–BOOTH 3177  They’re all natural and made with only three ingredients, offering great taste and superior health benefits

Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) March 11, 2008 -- Jennies Macaroons has added chocolate to its line of all-natural macaroons, which are free of soy, wheat, sulfites, lactose, trans fats and gluten, nuts and yeast. As the first baking company to introduce gluten-free and dairy free products to the market in 1951—and the manufacturer of the #1 selling macaroon in the natural food market— Jennies Macaroons offer today’s health-conscious consumers what they’re looking for. “They’re all natural and made with only three ingredients, offering great taste and superior health benefits,” says Arnold Badner, president.

Jennies’ products include ingredients that are nutritional superstars. Coconut, now considered by health experts to be the healthiest form of saturated fat, is a main ingredient in both the macaroons and Jennies Omega-3 Energy Bars. The addition of flax seeds, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds give the bars a fiber boost as well as Omega-3 support. One bar contains 1,305mg of the FDA recommended 1,300 mg/day of ALA Omega-3, which promotes normal cholesterol and triglyceride levels and supports healthy circulation, lung and brain functions. “Unlike many energy bars on the market, Jennies-Omega 3 bars taste great and contain no artificial ingredients. And they provide a great source of healthy energy for an active and athletic lifestyle,” adds Badner.

Garnering significant attention from the health industry, Jennies’ products are promoted by Jordan Rubin, founder of the Garden of Life and Perfect Weight America, who chronicles in his book The Maker’s Diet how he used Jennies Macaroons as a treatment for Crohn’s Disease. Dr. Mary Enig, nutritional expert and biochemist, recommends Jennie’s Coconut Macaroons as the #1 source of coconut for her immune-compromised patients. According to Enig, coconut helps the body’s cellular function and has unique antimicrobial, anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties.

The new Chocolate Macaroons will appeal to specialty food and chocolate retailers, as well health food stores. Available in 8-ounce canisters, the coconut and almond are already sold in Whole Foods nationwide. Jennies Macaroons complete product line is available nationwide and includes Jennies Energy Bars, Traditional Jennies Macaroons, Zero Carbs Jennies Macaroons, and Omega 3 Energy Bars. All products are Kosher Parve, Maker’s Diet approved, and manufactured in a gluten-free and nut-free facility.

Jennies Macaroons (www.macaroonking.com), founded in 1919, has been the leading provider of all-natural macaroons since 1951, and expanded its line to include its popular Omega-3 Energy Bars in 2006. All products are Kosher Parve and Maker’s Diet approved, and manufactured by Red Mill Farms, Inc. in Brooklyn, NY. President Arnold Badner, 66, who has run more than 30 marathons and is an avid cyclist, relies on his Energy Bars to help him through his century bike rides in the Catskill Mountains.
