I am so impressed and so happy! Finally our community is starting to focus on health a bit. Very much needed in crown heights. Good luck.

looking forward to it

looking forward to it

great! I hop you can make the kind bars and be less expensive than the $2.25 local store selling price for a 1.5 oz bar – that is $24 per pound !!! if you can make it for $10 per pound, that would be about 65 cents per bar equivalent. they seem to be nuts and dried cranberries, or bluberries and honey, which are all under $10 per pound wholesale.

Unless you have celiac disease or a lesser form of gluten intolerance, there are no health benefits to a gluten free diet.

Do the dried fruits contain sulfur or are they naturally dried without anything added? That’s always my problem when I want to buy dried fruit – no chemical additives!

Are you a doctor?
don’t decide from what you read.
People with other stomach issues, such as chron’s and colitis will feel much better if they stay away from all grains.
besides
People could benefit from eating healthy snacks even if they are not off gluten.

Great to see people acting on ideas.

Yes I am a Doctor. I have been a practicing Gastroenterologists for 10 years and involved in celiac disease research for over 5 years.

For people with celiac disease, or a form of gluten intolerance, then a gluten-free diet is essential.

But for others, a gluten-free diet can lack vitamins, minerals, and fiber, and can increase sugar intake dramatically.

Why the negativity? While you might be right that scientifically, we have only been able to establish the benefits of a gluten-free diet in certain situations, nevertheless, many people report feeling significantly better when off gluten.
Regardless, I think even you agree that nuts and dried fruit are considered to be healthy snacks. As such, and especially being that you are a physician, you should applaud this endeavor.
I, for one, am very excited to sample the different treats and wish Yosef and Devori the utmost success.

Read wheat belly also written by a doctor. Today’s wheat has been genetically modified and turns into sugar immediately. Sugar causes inflammation which in turn causes most if our diseases. If we would refrain from sugar and wheat we would see a dramatic shift in our health for the better

Your bars look incredibly good, and they are so cheap! in Sydney we pay $ 3.00 for one kosher date/nut/whey protein (kosher) healthy energy ball….if you package them, I will bring them back to Sydney and sell for you!

Fruits??

Gluten causes tremendous problems.
Almost people suffer from non celiac gluten sensitivity.
Wheat rye and barely are completely different nowadays
in regards to gluten. The two primary systems that are affected are the nervous system and skin. Try to strictly avoid
gluten for 2 months and you be the judge. In the meantime wash on oat bread.

Thank you so much for doing this!!
Guest
Thank you so much for doing this!!

I live out of town, but I can’t wait to visit you on my next trip to C.H.. I hope you will carry organic and non-gmo products if you don’t already! Gluten-free in my opinion is great!

Wonderful! But....
Guest
Wonderful! But....

I just set the timer on my dehydrator … Will want up with fruit peels all ready for the kids.
I personally think people should research all the other junk in your food. GMOs, artificial food dyes, hydrogenated oils, kosher food producers fill their products with fake food.
This is an excellent start.

Doctor who essentially discouraged a gluten free eating habit, you don’t know what you don’t know. Also, to suggest that someone will lack various minerals etc from a lack of >gluten< is foolish. There are plenty of other sources for the vitamins, minerals and fiber found in "gluten bread", in our everyday diet. Fruits, veggies etc. Furthermore how could you link increased sugar intake to decreased gluten?!!! What is surprising to me is, you apparently have not done any research on the affect GMO foods have in damaging organs, or the affect of eating today's mostly lifeless food (food having… Read more »

Its great for everyone

Whether ur gluten free, celiac, intolerant or non of the above, you can always benefit from a yummy healthy snack

Why do we have to jump and bash a good idea ,especially at such great prices? The owners are not here to force a gluten free diet on anyone, just providing a great option for a delicious snack and a cheaper way to buy nuts and fruits.
Kol Hakavod!
I will definitely be buying some 🙂

Having everyone discuss health will bring more attention to healthy eating and your business. Good luck you two!

PS everyone would do good eating healthy snacks, nothing to do with diet or gluten free!
