Gluten is the protein commonly found in wheat, rye and barley, and it can cause some people severe health problems. But for many, a gluten-free lifestyle can make a world of difference. Enjoy Life Foods wants to help everyone delight in safe, tasty treats, which is why they're proud that their baking facility has been certified as gluten-free by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization. They make their cookies, snack bars and more under strict regulations and perform routine rapid tests to ensure that their products are free from gluten. Nosh with confidence!
The GF/CF diet
Gluten is the protein that is found in wheat, barley and rye, while casein is the principal protein found in milk and other dairy products. Gluten is common in items made in mainstream bakeries, but the substance also sneaks into foods you wouldn’t suspect, such as soy sauce or licorice. Remember that “wheat-free” doesn’t necessarily mean “gluten-free”!
Some people eliminate these items from their meals as a personal preference, but most — like those with celiac disease — must follow a strict gluten-free/casein-free diet because it’s imperative to their health. All Enjoy Life Foods products are gluten-free and casein-free, so they’re suitable for a GF/CF diet.
Many parents report an improvement in alertness, sensory perception, awareness of pain and overall behavior management when gluten and casein are eliminated from the diets of their children living with Autism. While there is limited scientific evidence to date, anecdotal evidence from many parents points to the benefits gained from following a GF/CF diet.
All Enjoy Life Foods products are free-from the eight most common food allergens in the United States, as declared by the FDA — wheat, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, soy, fish and shellfish. In addition, our products are made in their allergy-friendly facility, so there’s no chance of contamination. Enjoy Life also is free from Canada’s twelve priority food allergens, which include the top eight plus sulfites, crustaceans, sesame and mustard.
But forfeiting the bad stuff doesn’t mean they forfeit the taste or texture you crave! Enjoy Life gets creative with their ingredients to bring you foods that are safe and delicious. In addition to secure rice products, they use nutrient- and flavor-rich grain alternatives such as quinoa, amaranth, buckwheat and sorghum flour. Instead of eggs, they use a combination of baking powder, flax and applesauce. Rather than saturated fats, they use non-hydrogenated, trans fat-free safflower oil. For sweeteners, Enjoy Life skips the refined stuff and uses a combination of natural fruit juices and honey or pure brown cane sugar. They also bake with rosemary extract and a fruit juice/grain dextrin mixture to lock-in freshness and extend shelf life.
To them, being allergy-friendly doesn’t mean giving up your favorite foods like cookies, chocolate bars and seed & fruit mixes. It just means they put a little extra thought and love into creating them safely.
GMOs (genetically modified organisms) are plants or animals created through the gene splicing techniques of biotechnology, and they’re present in more than 80 percent of packaged products in the average U.S. or Canadian grocery store.
As the #1 brand in the allergy-friendly foods category, Enjoy Life Foods has a mission to create delicious food products made with pure, safe ingredients. That’s why they're so proud to have received the official Non-GMO Project Verification on all of their 56 products. This benchmark places Enjoy Life Foods at the top of the gluten-free/allergy-friendly food chain, as no other free-from company in the natural foods category has more verified non-GMO products.
