Do More Bars' Gluten Free Bars Already Compliant With New FDA Gluten Free Labeling Guidelines

Do More Bars' gluten free bars labeling is already compliant with the new Food and Drug Administration (FDA) rule that foods labeled 'gluten free' test at less than 20 ppm (parts per million) for gluten. The rule was published in the Federal Register on August 5, 2013 and manufacturers have one year to become compliant. This long awaited ruling is a relief to those with celiac disease whose only way to manage their condition is through eating a gluten free diet. No matter how the claim is stated, 'free of gluten', 'no gluten', etc., the same standard applies. Foods must be either inherently gluten free or be processed to the point that the gluten has been removed. Fortunately, Do More Bars are made with ingredients that are naturally gluten free and the finished products are also tested periodically for gluten as an extra control measure. The FDA estimates that about 5% of the products claiming to be gluten free have more than 20 ppm gluten, so it is important to know which products on the market are already compliant.

Kid Friendly Healthy Snacking Solution for Back-to-School Season

Heading back-to-school is just around the corner and it's time to start planning food options for the gluten-free student. Do More Bars' gluten free bars provide a taste friendly, back pack friendly snack option. Reminiscent of crisp rice treats, kids of all ages love them and they don't melt or fall apart, providing an intact snack when needed. With celiac disease now affecting 1% of the population, more schools are addressing gluten-free dietary needs. Still gluten-free options aren't always available. Even the majority of colleges and universities lack the knowledge to meet gluten free needs. Students need to go prepared with snacks that can get them through times when they don't have access to gluten-free foods.

Do More Bars Announces New Gluten-Free Bar Flavor - Apple Walnut

The company announced today that the winning flavor combination in their 'Do Us A Flavor Contest' was Apple Walnut. Each year, Do More Bars, gluten free bars, develops a new flavor, but this year the company wanted the flavor to be the 'People's Choice'. For this contest the company encouraged everyone to send in their favorite fruit and nut combination. The feedback was so varied, from wasabi peas and green raisins to lime pistachio, that there was no single flavor combination that was clearly the winner. So the preliminary voting was narrowed down to four of the most popular choices; Peach Almond, Apricot Almond, Apple Walnut and Banana Walnut. A second round of voting made for a very tight race between the Apple Walnut and the Peach Almond, but in the end the Apple Walnut came out on top. Founder Tammy Woods stated, "This has been such a fun contest. We love hearing what tastes good to people; some combinations I never would have thought of doing. It's been enlightening. The feedback from this contest will certainly influence future flavors." The new Apple Walnut flavor will be in the works this summer and should be available by August. All those who suggested the winning flavor will be entered in a drawing. The winner will receive a six-pack of the new flavor when it comes out.
