Auburn, WA (PRWEB) March 22, 2010
Sunsweet Naturals SupraFiber has completed the process to obtain gluten-free certification. SupraFiber will carry the certified gluten free mark, which insures that the product has passed the strict quality assurance standards of the Gluten Free Certification Organization.
"Sunsweet® is pleased to be providing a safe, nutritious source of fiber to the gluten intolerant community and others following gluten-free diets," said Dane Lance, Vice President of Global Sales & Marketing of Sunsweet. "The certification demonstrates our company-wide commitment to product safety and the adherence to the highest quality standards. We firmly believe that having SupraFiber as gluten-free is vital to our co-op's family of farmers' pledge for Sunsweet Naturals to bring consumers products that are natural to higher standards."
"We are particularly pleased to add Sunsweet to the GFCO family," said Cynthia Kupper, RD, Executive Director of the Gluten Intolerance Group of North America, based in Seattle, WA. "Sunsweet Naturals SupraFiber is filling a critical need since the gluten-free diet is low in high-fiber products which leads to improved nutrition and healthier lives. The product is easy to use and should be a part of the gluten-intolerant consumer's daily regimen."
SupraFiber is setting a new standard for fiber supplements. No other fiber supplement utilizes the high performance of whole food super fruit like SupraFiber’s blend of D’Noir™ prunes, acai berries, pomegranate and blueberries. Moreover, SupraFiber provides a rich 5 grams of fiber per serving, while being one of a few brands that provide a nearly equal balance of both soluble and insoluble fiber.
