Packaging Spotlight: Fifty50 Foods Unveils New Packaging for its Certified Low-Glycemic Products


Specialty food brand continues to serve consumers' growing appetite for Low-Glycemic Foods while funding Diabetes research

ROCHESTER, N.Y., Nov. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Fifty50 Foods, the company that designed specialty foods for people living with diabetes, revealed new packaging prominently featuring its brand slogan "Eat Well, Feel Good" to underscore the company's commitment to helping consumers benefit from a Low-Glycemic diet. The company also announced that it will continue its 26-year legacy of donating half of its profits to diabetes research, which so far totals more than $14 million.

"Based on shopper and retailer insights, we felt it was the right time to showcase how our great-tasting products meet the personal wellbeing objectives not only for people with diabetes but also those who want to live a Low-Glycemic lifestyle," said Julie Frost, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Fifty50 Foods.

Fifty50 Foods has the industry's most extensive variety of certified Low-Glycemic foods ranging from peanut butters and fruit spreads to candies and cookies to breakfast items like syrup and oatmeal to baking items like pie crust and crystalline fructose. The brand's food items contain carbs that rank lower on the Glycemic Index (GI) so they are digested slower and won't cause dramatic blood sugar fluctuations, helping to keep energy levels steadier.

Low-Glycemic foods are not only for people with diabetes. Studies {1} have shown that a Low-GI diet offers health advantages like diminishing the risk for Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and age-related eye illnesses.

Tradition of giving continues
"In 1991, when we first committed to donating half of our profits to help prevent, treat and cure diabetes, it was not as common as it is today to find companies that make significant financial contributions to charities and social causes," said Frost. "We are proud of the fact that we were an early trailblazer in this area."

The company has given more than $8 million to date to (JDRF), the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research.  "Fifty50 Foods is helping us realize our goal of living in a world without T1D," said Melissa Newman, Ph.D., Executive Director, Southwest Ohio Chapter, JDRF. "Every dollar we put towards research comes from donations and we are grateful for their support so we can continue to advance our mission and find a cure."

Fifty50 Foods' products are available for purchase at Fifty50Foods.com, on popular online shopping sites like Amazon, iHerb and MyBrands and at local grocers across the U.S.

Frozen Dessert Spotlight: Graeter’s Low Glycemic Ice Cream



50% of the sugar and 100% of the fun. Whether you’re managing diabetes or shopping for someone who is, one scoop of our low-glycemic ice cream serves up a deliciously responsible indulgence.




It’s the secret behind our sweetness. The monk fruit packs a lot of power into a small package. The extract is nearly 300 times sweeter than sugar, so a little bit adds a lot of naturally sweet flavor. It’s why our low-glycemic ice creams have the same taste and texture as our regular flavors. In fact, in head-to-head taste tests, most people couldn’t tell them apart.

The monk fruit grows in remote highlands in Asia and is considered a national treasure in China, where it’s been grown for centuries in small family orchards. The Chinese have long used the monk fruit as a natural sweetener and as a way to treat diabetes and obesity.

Managing diabetes is all about moderation. By budgeting sugars and carbs, you can allow yourself sweet treats. Graeter’s low-glycemic ice creams meet the certifications of the Glycemic Research Institute®’s criteria for a low-glycemic food suitable for people with type 2 diabetes.* It’s the sweetest part of being responsible.

Product Spotlight: EPIC Turkey Almond Cranberry Bar


Naturally low in fat and loaded with vitamins and minerals, turkey is an exceptionally dense source of nutrient- rich protein. This delicious bar is loaded with almonds and cranberries to add both texture and balance to the dominant meatiness of the turkey. We finish the bar with a hint of tandoori spice that further enhance the flavor and naturally increases shelf life. The native North American turkey has deep-rooted cultural and nutritional value that long exceeds the arrival of Columbus.

The great Ben Franklin once noted, "Turkey is a much more respectable bird (than a bald eagle), and withal a true original Native of America... though a little vain and silly, a Bird of Courage, and would not hesitate to attack a Grenadier of the British Guards who should presume to invade his Farm Yard with a red coat on."

About EPIC
While driving through rural New Mexico on one of our epic outdoor adventures, we witnessed the horrors of an industrial cattle feedlot off the side of an isolated country road. For the first time, we became increasingly aware of the large-scale industrial animal factories that supply the world's meat, but we never connected the dots to the animals that we consumed everyday. Immediately, we reconsidered our own consumption of meat to protest the unnatural and inhumane raising of animals.

As vegetarians, Katie and I continued our pursuit of epic adventure to new extremes. We raced marathons, trained for Ironman triathlons, and frequently entered the wild where we pushed our bodies and spirits to previously unimaginable limits. Sometimes we would be out for so long that we had to sleep in fields just to find the energy to drag our bodies the final few miles home.

Shortly after, we reached a point in which we were becoming increasingly fatigued, losing muscle mass, and suffering from symptoms of overtraining. Over time, we discovered that the problem was that Katie and I could not consume enough nutrient-rich protein and vitamins to keep up with our constantly recovering bodies. We both felt a sense that we were missing a fundamental element to our diets and we instinctively began reintroducing animal protein that we purchased from our local farmers market. At the time, this was the only available outlet for humanely- treated organic and grass-fed meats.
