La Jolla, California (PRWEB) August 22, 2012
Ever since Elisabeth Hasselbeck promoted the benefits of gluten-free diets on the popular daytime talk show, The View, many consumers have embraced this new trend in nutrition. While many food producers have relied on high gluten content in wheat-based products for added texture and structure, the element derived from wheat plants is known to be harmful for those with celiac disease, wheat allergies or the recent condition coined as “gluten sensitivity.” A recent article from FOX News discusses the growing popularity of gluten-free products and how those in the medical, baking and retail industries are responding to the new trend. Fad or not, Julian Bakery offers a wide array of healthy bread products that include gluten-free items; the company describes its success with its high-quality products.
According to the article, the huge consumer shift to gluten-free diets is majorly in part due to its faddishness. However, there are some who have legitimate dietary restrictions as a result of complex medical issues. Most notably, celiac disease “causes abdominal pain, bloating and intermittent diarrhea” in reaction to gluten. Julian Bakery notes that those who have intolerance to gluten still have to find a way to get proper nutrients into their body. The bakery has created a unique line of gluten-free products that are said to “satisfy your hunger and provides protein and low carbs.”
Until about 20 years ago, celiac disease was considered extremely rare; however, health professionals have found that nearly two million Americans suffer from the disease. In addition, people have begun to blame gluten for an array of digestion problems that often resemble symptoms of celiac disease. Since celiac disease is detectable through biopsies and blood testing procedures, many who complain of the symptoms have found that they do not actually have the disease, but a condition recently termed as “gluten sensitivity.”
Despite the collection of documented medical knowledge, FOX News claims that a large percentage of those who follow gluten-free diets are simply following a trend in hopes of losing weight or eating healthier. Troy DeGroff, health food store manager, tells FOX that regardless of the incentives people have for shopping gluten-free “they're at least paying attention to what they're sticking in their mouth.” Following a similar sentiment, Julian Bakery promotes health conscious diets in a recent press statement, “Julian Bakery makes the perfect gluten-free breads that taste good and are good for you. On or off a diet, Julian Bakery prides itself on providing customers with breads that are not full of starch, sugars and other unhealthy ingredients.”
Julian Bakery, of San Diego, California, has transformed from a small bakery into a health-conscious business offering fresh cookies, breads and other products. Customers can purchase low-carb, gluten-free and other specialty items at the storefront or online. Zero Cookies, Carb Zero, Paleo Bread, and Low Carb Protein Bars, vitamins and supplements are just a few of the products available at Julian Bakery.
