CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Enjoy Life Foods recently announced Dark Chocolate Morsels took Best New Product honors in GFREEK.COM’s Annual Gluten Free Awards (GFA). GFREEK.COM is known as the “go-to” website for gluten free product and service comparisons. Its mission is to make life easier on Celiac and Gluten Intolerant people and their families by providing quick and easy to understand comparisons about gluten free products and services. The Best Gluten Free New Product list is produced by approximately 3000 people on a gluten free diet who have casted votes on GFREEK.COM.
Featuring 69% cacao and clean ingredients of unsweetened chocolate and natural cane sugar, Enjoy Life Foods Dark Chocolate Baking Morsels is the only gluten-free dark chocolate morsel on the market that’s also dairy, nut and soy free, as well as being verified as non-GMO. The demand for gluten-free baking supplies continues to increase and is currently the fastest growing product sector in the gluten-free category.
The Dark Chocolate Morsels are the third SKU in Enjoy Life’s top-selling baking chocolate line joining category-leading Semi-Sweet Mini Chips and Semi-Sweet Mega Chunks. As with all Enjoy Life products, the Dark Chocolate Morsels are free from gluten and the top 8 common food allergens, certified kosher, made in a dedicated nut-free facility, verified non-GMO, and made with no artificial ingredients. The SRP for a 9 ounce bag of Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate Baking Morsels is $4.99.
Enjoy Life Foods is the leader in the "free from" food category, with food products that are all certified gluten-free and free from the top eight allergens: wheat, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, soy, fish and shellfish — the allergens that account for 90% of all food allergic reactions in the United States. With a variety of great-tasting product offerings that include cookies, bars, lentil chips, cereals, granola, and baking chocolate, Enjoy Life Foods gives millions of food allergy sufferers choices from which to “Eat Freely.”
“We are proud to have our Dark Chocolate Morsels recognized as Best New Product by the GFREEK.COM gluten-free community,” said Joel Warady, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, Enjoy Life Foods. “It is important to us that our free from products are serving the unique needs of those people who want to ‘eat freely’ from a wide variety of food choices.”
GFREEK.COM is a website that hosts the Annual Gluten Free Awards (GFA). Each year, people that consume or use gluten-free products and services are able to vote on their favorites. The results are posted onto the website for everyone to use. The 4th Annual Gluten Free Award winners and nominees will also be placed in the Gluten-Free Buyers Guide. The purpose is to provide quick and easy information to consumers, distributors and retailers.
According to Food Allergy Research Education (FARE), food allergies are serious medical conditions that affect up to 15 million people in the United States, including 1 in 13 children. It's a growing problem and increasing the availability in retail stores of foods that are safe for these people is more important than ever.
