A Satisfying Healthy Gluten-free Snack Bar That Tastes Great



   It seems like there are a lot of people who either can't eat gluten, avoid gluten, or just stay away from it because somebody told them too. What ever the reason you don't eat food with gluten in is none of my business. I am just happy there are great tasting products for people who don't eat gluten. Many years ago when the doctor told you that you had to get wheat out of your diet, it was plain awful as the few products that were available back then were expensive and tasted nasty. So this gluten-free craze has been awesome for people who have severe problems digesting gluten. Companies have worked hard to get healthy great tasting gluten free products on the market that people can afford. I don't have any gluten issues, but I eat gluten free products as they taste great and are made with healthy ingredients.


  I discovered a great tasting gluten-free snack bar that not only tastes good but has nutritional benefits. These bars are low in sugar and have only 100 calories too! The thing I like best is I can recognize all the ingredients as they are ones they come from nature and not concocted in a lab. These ingredients are ones that I can feel good about eating. Just take a look at the ingredients that are in these tasty bars and the nutritional benefits.

•Gluten-free rolled oats—heart-healthy fiber has been shown to lower cholesterol
•Chia seeds—full of omega-3 fatty acids to help reduce risk of heart disease
•Cashew butter – monounsaturated fat to help improve cardiovascular health
•Chicory root—another protein-packed, fiber-rich ingredient to help your digestive system
•Sunflower seeds—packed with vitamin E and antioxidants
•Coconut—loaded with fiber to improve digestion and stabilize glucose levels
•Banana—high in potassium to help lower blood pressure and tryptophan to help boost your mood
•Acai berries—high in powerful antioxidants to help boost the immune system and slow the body’s aging process.
•Cranberries—loaded with antioxidants and proanthocyanidins, polyphenols that keep bacteria
•Cherries—an excellent source of potassium, which helps to lower blood pressure by getting rid of the excess sodium
•Plums – a good source of fiber that helps normalize blood glucose levels by slowing the absorption of sugars
•Blueberries—high in powerful antioxidants and vitamin C to help boost the immune system and brain function.
•Greek yogurt—loaded with probiotics to support healthy digestion


Toosum takes these ingredients and makes four delicious flavors. The flavors are Cranberry & Acai, Cherry & Plum, Coconut & Banana, and Blueberry & Greek yogurt. I love eat one of these yummy bars for a snack as they have fiber and protein it them. So whether you have to avoid gluten or want to eat healthy, these delicious Non GMO and certified gluten-free are the perfect snack. What flavor would you like to try?

  2. I should get these to have on hand. I have a lot of friends that are gluten intolerant and I don't really have a snack option besides fruit for them.
