Ambo Foods LLC, a physician-directed company, has gone totally gluten-free. “This coming week we launch a new line of gluten-free, omega-3 and fiber rich cookies,” explained Dr. Bo Martinsen. “We found the added cost of using gluten-free, certified oats was well worth not having to worry about wheat contamination from other products and at the same time allows us to offer the benefits of omega-3 in a cookie format to those with gluten sensitivities.”
A large portion of the population can benefit from omega-3 supplementation, including those with diabetes, heart disease, joint issues, and chronic pain. Often though, it can be difficult for them to find the omega-3 in a form that they don’t mind taking daily, which is where the idea of a cookie comes into play. But unfortunately most cookie recipes include the use of gluten, which takes them off the menu for people with gluten sensitivities.
It’s a common misconception that gluten intolerance affects just those with celiac disease. In fact, an increasing number of people report experiencing a wide range of gastrointestinal problems ranging from bloating and cramps, to diarrhea, weight loss and malnutrition due to the high levels of gluten added to breads and other processed products. In addition, while the science is not yet definitive, many parents are also striving to provide a gluten-free diet for their children, especial those with attention issues.
This new formula allows those with gluten sensitivities the full benefit of omega-3 fish oil in a cookie, instead of being limited to the often less palatable oil or capsule formats. Not only have we banished gluten, says Dr. Martinsen, “but the Omega Cookie is nutrient rich. The omega-3 content is equivalent to a fresh salmon filet or seven fish oil capsules. In addition there are substantial levels of fiber, calcium and vitamin D, making this a tasty and healthy solution not only for gluten-free disciples, but also those with diabetes, depression, heart and joint issues.”
Available in four delectable flavors: cranberry, tropical fruit, ginger raisin, and dark chocolate chip, almost anyone can find the perfect fit for their taste buds. And with the convenience of grabbing one on the go, even the busiest student, parent, or CEO can find time for good health in their schedule.
