Better Bowls®, the only brand of heart healthy instant pudding and gelatin mixes, are available in major regional grocery chains and select Wal-Mart Super Centers, and have recently launched a Sugar-Free line of products and created an online Facebook donation promotion in honor of National Diabetes Month.
Better Bowls® Sugar-Free instant puddings and gelatin mixes are great tasting, nutritious snacks sweetened with Splenda®. One serving of the sugar-free pudding counts as '1 carbohydrate exchange' and one serving of the gelatin is considered a '0 carbohydrate exchange' or a free food, for diabetics trying to manage their carbohydrate counts and eat healthy. The sugar free puddings are only 80 calories when prepared with milk and contain 3 grams of fiber and 7 grams of protein. The sugar-free gelatins have 20 calories and contain 5 grams of fiber and 40% of the daily value of Vitamin C and count as 0 Weight Watchers® points. In addition, Better Bowls products are low in sodium, gluten-free, and have no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.
"We are committed to helping the more than 50% of American households actively trying to treat, manage and/or prevent chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, obesity and diabetes by providing consumers with nutritionally better and healthier food choices while maintaining great taste. Trying to get the right balance between natural, healthy and great taste is a challenging task and Better Bowls achieved that balance with our great tasting, nutritious line of puddings and gelatin mixes. A lot of sugar-free products in the market focus primarily on the sugar- free aspect and fail to deliver nutritional benefits which is our key focus. Our sugar-free products score very well with some of the leading nutritional programs used in grocery stores. For example, our sugar free gelatins have a score of 83 using the Nuval® system" said Dr. Malathy Nair, who is the founder and President of Better Bowls and a 17 year veteran of the food industry having worked previously at General Mills and The Hershey Company.
Better Bowls is also committed to helping Diabetes Research. Diabetes is a major issue facing today's population, with more than 220 million people worldwide being diagnosed with diabetes. For the month of November, Better Bowls will donate 10 cents towards diabetes research for every individual who becomes a fan of the Better Bowls Facebook Page. (Up to $500)
Better Bowls, a Hershey, PA based company located at the Hershey Center for Applied Research has supported diabetes organizations in communities where their products have been sold.
With November being National Diabetes Month, Better Bowls is proud to launch its Sugar-Free Heart Healthy Instant Puddings and Gelatin Mixes, and also will donate 10 cents towards Diabetes Research for every user who "likes" Better Bowls' Facebook page until the end of this month.
