January, 2011 – New lemon bar mix offers delicious taste AND wholesome nutrition to people with celiac disease, food allergies, and diabetes – There has been a dramatic increase in the number of gluten-free products sold in stores and websites, but there has not been a gluten-free lemon bar mix — until now.
Just introduced by Marion's Smart Delights®, the new Gluten-Free Lemon Bar Baking Mix is not only certified gluten-free, but also allergen-free, Kosher certified, and made with 100 percent natural ingredients including gluten-free whole grains.
Like Marion's Smart Delights Cookie & Muffin Baking Mix, the Gluten-Free Lemon Bar Baking Mix returns the joy of baking and eating to people with celiac disease, food allergies, food intolerances, diabetes and just about anyone seeking delicious taste AND wholesome nutrition. The mixes are available in select stores or can be purchased directly online ($5.99 for the Cookie and Muffin Baking Mix; $6.49 for the Lemon Bar Baking Mix).
Marion's Smart Delights mixes bake up into luscious treats with rich, old-fashioned flavor and wholesome nutrition. Made in a dedicated gluten-free facility, they contain whole grains, lower sodium and less sugar than other leading mixes.
Marion Braswell, PhD, president of Marion's Smart Delights, experimented for years and consulted with leading nutritionists in order to create baking mixes that are not only gluten free and free of the top eight allergens, but delicious tasting. The result, according to Braswell, are great tasting and nutritious baking mixes that allow those on special diets to enjoy a happier, healthier relationship with food.
"Our products can be made to meet many special dietary needs from heart-healthy to gluten-free. We provide nutritional information and diabetes exchanges. You can indulge your sweet tooth and know that you made a smart nutritional choice," says Braswell.
Marion's Smart Delights website features many resources and recipes for using Marion's Smart Delights baking mixes to create a wide array of mouth-watering, gluten-free treats like scrumptious carrot cake muffins and cranberry bread. Enjoy dairy-free, vegan, and heart-healthier versions of the basic cookie, muffin and lemon bar recipes, plus holiday treats and much, much more.
Also available is a new in-depth report from Steffany Moonaz, PhD, a nationally known Health Behaviorist. Too Sweet for Our Own Good Health: Considerations of Sugar and its Substitutes offers fresh insights into the health consequences of today's super-sweet Western diet, including the role sugar plays not only in obesity but in other diseases and disorders. In addition, Dr. Moonaz suggests how to explore healthier substitutes for traditional sugar and "re-train the taste buds" to appreciate more subtle, natural sweetness.
