2008: The Year of the Gnu?

2008: The Year of the Gnu?
New York, NY, December 18, 2007 --( A “Gnu” movement is taking hold across the country. People everywhere are chanting, “I want my fiber”. Dietary fiber, that is. People nationwide are proclaiming that the delicious Flavor & Fiber Bars, made by Gnu Foods, are the inspiration for their fiber-obsession. They are great-tasting, convenient and are a perfect addition to everybody’s “on-the-go” lifestyle.

This growing passion for fiber couldn’t come at a better time. Ongoing research by doctors, dieticians and nutritionists shows the numerous health benefits of eating more fiber. Health professionals say that, “Fiber is the hardest working food in your diet.” No wonder that 2008 is poised to be “The Year of The Gnu”.

Overeating and seasonal weight gain are challenges that we face during the holiday season. A fiber-rich diet is a great strategy to curb your cravings. Diets rich in high-fiber foods, like Gnu Foods’ Flavor & Fiber Bars, will fill you up with fiber instead of sugar and fat. You’ll feel full with fewer calories…and will eat less.

Gnu Foods loyal customers include:

• Dieters who are counting calories and POINTS® -- each bar is Low Fat with only 130-150 calories, depending on the flavor
• People looking for a satisfying, heart-healthy snack
• Parents looking for a wholesome and delicious snack for their children
• People with digestive disorders looking for a delicious, entirely natural, food-based solution for their conditions

Gnu Foods started in 2004 with a new way to get the dietary fiber your body needs: in a delicious, baked bar, each with nearly 50% of your Daily Value of Fiber. Now it’s easy to get the fiber you need for weight loss, heart health and natural regularity. Each bar provides 12 grams of Dietary Fiber, has just 3 grams of Fat and tastes great! Say goodbye to bad taste, dry cereals, unpleasant laxatives and ingredients you can’t pronounce. Gnu Foods’ Flavor & Fiber Bars have the most fiber in a delicious baked bar. And they’re entirely natural.

The bars are available in five scrumptious flavors—Banana Walnut, Cinnamon Raisin, Orange Cranberry, Chocolate Brownie and the “Gnu-est” addition, Peanut Butter.

Make 2008 a Happy “Gnu” Year.
