Austin, TX, September 20, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- ReThink Nutrition, Inc., of Austin, Texas, has created the first gluten-free, all-natural cookies and mixes made with fiber and no calorie stevia and erythritol instead of starch and sugar, called Yes! To Cookies.
Search and search and you won’t find a baked food without flour, starch and sugar. Yes! To Cookies is the first gluten-free, all natural cookie that fights sugar consumption by also removing starch. These are the first cookies to replace starch with fiber to meet the growing needs of a public faced by epidemic dietary problems.
It is proven fact that All starch and flour is quickly converted to simple sugars once consumed. Cooking and baking starch and flour facilitates the process of converting starch and flour to sugar even faster. These large amounts of sugar require large amounts of insulin to process and converts to excessive calories in the average diet. Many healthcare professionals appear hesitant to admit, or seem surprisingly unaware that starch and flour are simply sugar in disguise. This is leading to a frighteningly mislead public that doesn't realize that a healthy bowl of cereal, dish of rice, a potato or even a slice of whole wheat bread is simply even more excess sugar being added to the public diet.
The fact that starch and flour is simply sugar has been lost in the ongoing controversy over low carbohydrate vs. low calorie. Calories are simply energy. Flour, starch and sugar represent highly concentrated energy, high calorie forms of food. By replacing starch and flour with fiber, and quickly or slowly digested sugar with no calorie all-natural stevia and erythritol, Yes! To Cookies is far more similar to the healthy nutrition of a low starch vegetable that has lots of fiber and very little digestible sugar than a traditional starch, flour and sugar based cookie.
Another wonderful surprise is that fiber, stevia and erythritol do not cause the gastric distress of other sugar alcohols more commonly used in "sugar free" foods sweetened with maltitol, xylitol, sorbitol, etc. Most sugar alcohols such as maltitol, xylitol and sorbitol are also only half the calories and digestible carbohydrate grams of sucrose (table sugar) or fructose sugar. Erythritol is 5% of the calories of sucrose and fructose, so it and stevia have almost no measurable impact on blood glucose. This sweetener combination along with fiber provides appetite satiety as well as a powerful dietary tool to reduce calories and blood sugar impact. The fiber, too, helps slow sugar absorption of other foods.
Yes! To Cookies was a welcome surprise at the August 2009 American Association of Diabetic Educators Conference in Atlanta. Professionals were amazed to taste the first, all-natural, gluten-free, sugar-free, yummy cookies that help manage blood glucose by replacing starch and sugar with fiber and no calorie sweeteners. Sample and literature requests have started to pour in from healthcare professionals across the country eager to introduce Yes! To Cookies at health fairs, presentations and regional events.
Parents introduced to Yes! To Cookies at recent JDRF Walks to Cure Diabetes are amazed to now have a treat for children that has almost no impact on raising blood sugar levels. For adults and and parents of children with diabetic conditions, Yes! To Cookies is an exciting new snack with only 1/3 of 1 gram of digestible carbohydrate per half ounce cookie. That means that in 10 cookies or about 5 ounces of cookies, a person will digest about 3 carbohydrate calories which is easy to manage even for a severe diabetic.
For those concerned about gluten, replacing gluten with fiber instead of other forms of high calorie starch and flour is a healthy and welcome choice for weight control and better nutrition. For parents of autistic children Yes! To Cookies ready to eat cookies are a convenient gluten free treat that children say taste, "Great!" like real cookies. In addition, for families who must also limit casein, the Yes! To Cookies mixes can be made with butter substitutes for gluten free cookies that are also casein free. Whey protein isolate is used instead of whey to completely eliminate casein in the mix. The process of creating whey protein isolate eliminates all casein from the protein.
