In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease. In 1998 I founded The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.
Today I tried a product that many celiacs should appreciate—a delicious Raspberry Attune Gluten-Free Probiotic Chocolate Bar. The amazing thing about these bars (they make several flavors, including Raspberry, Dark Chocolate and Chocolate Crisp) is that they contain five times the live cultures as yogurt, so they would be an especially important addition to anyone’s diet who has celiac disease.
The gluten-free bar was excellent, and it tasted like a very high-quality chocolate bar with small pieces of raspberry—an excellent combination of flavors. Since it is made with 68% cacao it is likely packed with natural antioxidants as well as the added probiotics (in the form of Bifidobacterium Lactis HN019, Lactobacillius Acidophilus NCFM and Lactobacillius Casei LC-11).
I would recommend these bars to anyone who wants to add a healthy snack or dessert to their diet that also packs antioxidants and probiotics in a single, small 0.7 oz. gluten-free chocolate bar (it is only 90 calories). These bars will also fool my kids—they will be eating something they love, chocolate, but also something that is healthy—so if you have children this is the kind of treat you should be looking for!
