Alpen Snack Bars

7 posts in this topic

Several months ago I came upon a website that had gluten free bars. The name was alpensnack or something like that. The bars were made with nuts and dried fruit and were quite tasty. Now that I want to get some more, I cannot come up with the website. Is there anyone out there who know what I am referring to? HELP. Please e-mail me if you know anything about this product. anne@clay-play.com

Hi Anne,

I think you are talking about Alpsnacks. They are great. I buy them by the dozen at Gluten Solutions. I haven't found them anywhere else, but I'm sure other places sell them. You can find them at the following link:

God bless,

I've tried some of their mixes. This is where I get the Really Great Foods Chocolate Cake mix that I've raved about before. It is awesome! I also get their Gluten Solutions label Chocolate Mint Protein bars. They are great and we always take some of these with us when we leave the house, so we have something easy to eat if we can't find something safe right away. My kids love em.

God bless,

Mariann

Wonderful to know. Except the mint that is (hate mintlOL). After I get over being sick (what a morning I won't bore anyone) I will think about placing an order. I need to figure out what other foods I'm having problems with. How long does it take for an order to get to you? I did order a paper catalog. We are going to Oregon in a week to visit relatives. I've been trying to figure out what to do for food for me since I will probably be fending for myself. I doubt I could get an order from them that fast. Thanks much.

Carol,

They try to ship the same day, the next day if you place the order at night, but it still takes about a week to get your order. I placed my order on the 1st and it is expected to get to me on the 9th. So you probably don't have time to get the shipment sent to your home, but you could have it sent to the address in Oregon where you will be visiting and then you would have food there to eat.

God bless,

Mariann

Thanks much. We will be in several different places so I think I'll skip. Won't have much money till payday anyways which is the Friday comming before we leave. Just for information, I have been really researching this SCD diet the last couple of days. I'm really seriously considering trying it after the book gets here and I read on it. Now that I know for sure that food has been making me sick I have more will power to do what it takes to get well.

    • Normal Iga Levels For Kids?
      Just came back from a pediatric GI doctor with my 12 year old. the doctor told me that Chris' IgA level of 45 is too low and normal range for his age is 70. Although the standard Celiac panels came back negative twice, he wants another done with TTG and IgG.

      only the first one is a celiac test.  and you need the rest of them run.  What country are you in?
    • Second Panel has come back...advice?
      If you follow the gluten-free diet correctly, without being paranoid about it either......your DGP will drop because you won't be eating the food that makes it rise.  I think having a gluten-free house is a great idea because it allows you to relax in your own home. As for reading labels all the time, I have a few comments on that one.  In the beginning, and depending on just how much processed foods you plan on eating, it is a good idea to get into the habit of reading labels.  You learn how to do that correctly from experience.  However, in 11 years gluten free, I have never once seen any processed food I have bought that changed their ingredients. I'm sure it can happen but I've never seen it. Usually, with higher end brands, they never do that because if the product is a success, they don't mess with it.  I can't speak for generic or store brands because I do not buy them. I do not eat a lot of processed foods either. If you are buying a product specifically geared towards the Celiac population and is certified gluten-free, you do not have to check the label unless you have other food intolerance's. Glutino and the other companies which market a gluten-free line of products will not change their ingredients and put something in there we cannot have. Whole Foods Market Gluten Free Bakery line....same thing.  They are all dedicated facilities that make food for Celiac's and are not a worry. I am from New England and buy B & M baked beans, which are gluten free. They are a New England company and haven't changed their recipe for years and years...in fact, maybe never.  Those beans are an institution around here and they will not change their ingredients that have been popular for a very long time.....they have been around since my great-grandmother's time. I buy the basic ones without the added flavorings like onion, etc. I can't speak for every flavor they produce because I eat only the basic beans. But I no longer check the label....don't have to. The company specifically told me they don't mess with success and would not change ingredients. Supplements are something you need to read labels on every time but food items are a little different and you will become very good at understanding the whole thing the longer you do it. It becomes second nature. I am very happy you are on your way to a much healthier life! 
    • Nation's First Free Food Pantry for People with Food Allergies or Celiac Disease
      Kansas is wheat country, and like the rest of America, Kansans are generally not gluten-free. That means the food in their charity food pantries are not usually gluten-free. View the full article
    • Celiac in 10 month old?
      This is a link that will explain sreun panels for infants under 2 years of age. http://www.thepatientceliac.com/2013/04/18/update-on-celiac-disease-screening-in-infants-and-toddlers/ The author of that is a doctor, has celiac herself, and is a member of celiac.com. Here is a link that tells you about her: http://www.thepatientceliac.com/about-me/   This link will also give you information: http://www.beyondceliac.org/living-with-celiac-disease/info-for-parents/testing/ Quoting from it in part: Celiac Disease Testing in Children Under 3 Blood tests are not always accurate in very young children. If your child is less than 3 years old, you may be advised to see a gastroenterologist instead of relying on blood tests results.
