Food Spotlight: NurturMe Launches First Ancient Grain Cookies with Probiotics for Kids

 

 

 

New organic, gluten-free line of cookies combines four ancient grains and immune-boosting probiotics

AUSTIN, Texas, April 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- NurturMe, the Tummy Friendly Brand™ known for its innovative quinoa baby food and toddler snacks, today unveiled the first and only organic ancient grain-based cookies with probiotics. Free from gluten, dairy, soy and egg, NurturMe Ancient Grain Cookies combine four nutrient-packed ancient grains with a daily dose of GanedenBC30® probiotics to support digestive health and immune health in little ones.

NurturMe shook up the baby food aisle when they introduced the first-ever infant cereals and toddler snacks made from pure organic quinoa, which is naturally gentle, hypoallergenic and easy to digest. Today the company is taking its approach to the next level by becoming the first and only baby and toddler food brand dedicated to protecting little tummies. Starting this spring, NurturMe is removing common allergens that can upset sensitive bellies from its full family of organic meals and snacks – including ZERO gluten, dairy, soy and egg – and adding non-GMO, vegan probiotics to its ancient grain-based lines.

"As moms, we understand how stressful feeding can be," says Caroline Freedman, NurturMe's CEO and co-founder. "Whether it's special dietary needs or simply picky eaters, we're taking our naturally gentle approach a significant step further to help take the worry out of mealtime. From our healthy new cookies, which parents can actually feel good about, to our 'free from' products with the added benefits of probiotics – we're leading the charge toward overall nutritional and digestive health in little ones."

Did you know around 70% of the immune system is in the gut? It's no wonder awareness of probiotics as an important player in overall health is on the rise. According to a recent national study*, 70 percent of Americans relate the term to a health benefit, and 69 percent of parents said they would pay more for products containing probiotics.

To support immune and digestive health, NurturMe has partnered with Ganeden – the leading and trusted probiotics company – to add a daily dose of probiotics to its ancient grain-based lines. Just one serving of NurturMe's new Ancient Grain Cookies, Organic Quinoa Baby Cereals or 100% Quinoa Squares delivers more immune-boosting benefits than 10 cups of probiotic yogurt.

NurturMe's new cookies combine quinoa, amaranth, millet and sorghum to deliver a complete and balanced protein with all essential amino acids and immune-boosting antioxidants.  They come in three flavors – Cocoa, Honey and Maple + Cinnamon – and are launching online and in stories (MSRP $3.99) in April, including in Babies"R"Us stores nationwide.

For more information about GanedenBC30 (Bacillus coagulans GBI-30, 6086), Ganeden's patented, FDA GRAS, non-GMO, highly stable probiotic ingredient that can be found in more than 750 leading products around the world, visit GanedenProbiotics.com.

Food Spotlight: Caution! Wide Loaf: Canyon Bakehouse Is Rolling Out Something Big

 

 

Gluten-Free Artisan Bakery Brand Expands Bread Line with First of Its Kind Big-Slice Loaves

LOVELAND, Colo., Jan. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Canyon Bakehouse®, a Colorado-based gluten-free bakery, announces the launch of two new big-slice loaves. The first of its kind for gluten-free bread, Heritage Style slices are wider and taller than traditional gluten-free bread. Rooted in the tradition of family-style, artisan-made loaves, the Heritage Style breads offer a big, new take on what it means to eat gluten free.

"Our fans have always loved the delicious taste and texture of our baked goods, but we wanted to create a large-loaf option for people who want a bigger, need-both-hands-to-handle kind of sandwich," said Christi Skow, Canyon Bakehouse co-founder and gluten free mom. "However, making a big, gluten-free loaf is quite challenging. You can't just add more dough to a bigger pan. Gluten-free bread doesn't rise and behave the way wheat breads do. So our team threw on their aprons, got busy baking, and created a recipe for a delicious wide loaf with a soft chewy center and golden crust on the outside."

Available in Honey White and Whole Grain, each Heritage Style loaf is made with all-natural ingredients and no GMOs, and is strong enough to hold up to any sandwich piled high with all the fixings! Like all Canyon Bakehouse baked goods, they are Certified Gluten-Free, kosher and free from dairy, casein, tree nuts, peanuts, soy and sesame.

Canyon Bakehouse Gluten-Free Heritage Style Bread will roll into conventional and natural grocery stores nationwide in February 2017. The suggested retail price is $7.99 per 24-ounce loaf. To learn more about the new Heritage Style bread and other baked goods from Canyon Bakehouse, please visit us on Facebook and Instagram @canyonglutenfree, on Twitter @CanyonGFree, or online at www.canyonbakehouse.com.

About Canyon Bakehouse
Canyon Bakehouse is a dedicated gluten-free bakery located in Loveland, Colo. The family-owned bakery opened for business in 2009, recognizing the need for delicious gluten-free products that combine great flavor with soft texture, using only whole grains and all-natural, real food ingredients you'd find in your own kitchen. The bakehouse has continued to expand its distribution, including more than 8,000 stores nationwide. The award-winning breads have been featured in Prevention's "100 Cleanest Packaged Food Awards" and Delicious Living's "Best Bite Awards."

About Emmy's Organics

Emmy’s Organics, Inc. was started by couple, Ian & Samantha in 2009 in Ian’s mother’s home kitchen in Ithaca, NY. After struggling for many years with digestive problems, Ian had to change his lifestyle at a young age to avoid gluten, dairy and other irritants. His path led him to learn and work with raw, vegan foods in a number of restaurants and cafés. After meeting Samantha, the couple realized that they both shared a similar passion for health and well-being. Samantha grew up as a dancer and a self-proclaimed “health nut.” One night, Ian taught Samantha a coconut cookie recipe that he had developed many years prior. Seeing how clean the ingredients were and how easy the recipe was to make, a little idea was sparked that is now Emmy’s.

Ian and Samantha started small, selling their goods at the Ithaca Farmer’s Market and Greenstar Co-op. People really took to the coconut cookies and more people started buying them. A trip to NYC and other regional stores invited more retailers onboard. Today, Emmy’s products can be found in thousands of retail locations nationwide and soon, other countries!

Emmy’s is a home grown, family-oriented company, committed to spreading the good word about healthy snacking as well as social and environmental responsibility. Emmy’s B Corp Certification also shows the company’s strong passion for using business as a force for good. Examples of this can be seen in the organic and non-GMO ingredients Emmy’s sources, the way they give back to their community and other causes and the way they treat all people involved with their business. Emmy’s products are made in a wind and solar powered building and much attention is placed on reducing their carbon footprint.

About Green's

1988 Derek Green had a problem. He had to avoid the gluten in barley and wheat, and at that time in the UK- indeed Europe- there was no gluten free beer available. A miserable life without beer lay ahead.

A natural entrepreneur though, he travelled across Europe at the start of the century getting brewery doors slammed in his face. The response was not good.

“Too complicated” and “Why bother?” were common refrains.

So began a long process of discussions, meetings, trials, false hopes, and dead end trails. Breweries did not want to know about production that did not exist and one that could not be quantified.

the breakthrough

The breakthrough came in 2003 when he met an eminent Belgian professor of brewing whom by coincidence had a daughter who also needed to avoid gluten, and there began a relationship with the mutual goal of brewing a beer made from alternative grains to barley, one that would be naturally gluten and wheat free. After numerous trials, in May 2004 Green’s launched the UK’s first ever Alternative Grain and naturally gluten free beer; named not surprisingly ‘Discovery’.

Pretty quickly, once the awards started rolling in, the range expanded and the beers started to be exported to more and more countries eager to try this new range of beers. Today Green’s still produce the original Discovery Ale, plus Dry Hopped Lager and India Pale Ale, all of which are produced with 100% gluten free raw materials.
