    SOYJOY Baked Whole Soy and Cranberry Bar

    With so many gluten-free snack bars coming onto the market nowadays, it can be hard to find one that stands out, and really deserves a spot in your snack food reserves. SOYJOY makes great baked whole soy-based gluten-free bars, and their new cranberry flavor is one of their best yet.

    soyjoy_cranberry4.JPGWhen trying to describe the new cranberry SOYJOY, my first instinct is to compare it to a Nutri-Grain bar, just lighter and with whole dried fruit instead of a jelly filling (and no gluten, of course). I'm not usually a huge cranberry fan, but in this context, the cranberries add a very satisfying tanginess that keeps the bar from being overwhelmingly sweet. The bar also has a pleasant texture: it's both light (not overly heavy or chewy like some snack bars) and slightly moist, which is surprising given that it's made from baked soy.

    You can't expect to replace breakfast with these, but they are free of trans fats, low glycemic, low sodium and have 4g of protein. The ingredients list is also short and easily understood, with whole soy and dried fruit and no high fructose corn syrup. The portion control is also good, coming in at only 140 calories per bar.

    If you're looking for a tasty, fruity gluten-free snack to tide you over between meals, these are definitely worth a try.

    Celiac.com 07/30/2007 - I have a deep and abiding love for chicken nuggets. I associate tasty breaded chicken nuggets with growing up, as they were an integral part of happy childhood dinners.

I am happy to say that this supplement has recently been reformulated and it is now better than ever. 
    One of the biggest changes to CeliAct is the recommended dosage. ...
