06/15/04 - Added Fat In Low Carb Foods Can Ruin Your Health! New Carb Escapes™ Use Only Healthy, Natural Carb Substitutes
Announcing The First All Natural, 1 Gram Net Carb, 0-Cholesterol, Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert

(Eugene, Oregon) Unhealthy fats and artificial sweeteners are substituted for carbohydrates in many low net carb foods, adding unnecessary calories and cholesterol. Instead of helping dieters live a healthy low-carb lifestyle, these products may actually be fueling the current national obesity and Type II diabetes epidemics. Noting the health dangers of low net carb foods on the market, Turtle Mountain Inc., a leader in the non-dairy frozen dessert industry, has created the first ever soy-based, low net carb frozen indulgence that uses only natural, healthy carbohydrate and sugar substitutes to support low net carb weight loss and lifestyles. Rich, flavorful Carb Escapes™ bars and pints – the first all natural, 1 gram net carb per serving, non-dairy frozen desserts – are high in dietary fiber and calcium, cholesterol-free, certified Kosher Parve and vegan, contain no artificial sweeteners, flavors or bulking agents and have a low glycemic index and load.

Dish up pure enjoyment with Carb Escapes™ pints in seven mouth-watering natural flavors including: Butter Pecan, Chocolate, Chocolate Almond, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Mint Chip, Strawberry and White Mousse. Fulfill your dessert dreams with Carb Escapes’™ novelty line in 3 heavenly delights: creamy Peanut Butter Fudge Bars, divinely rich Vanilla Bars and superbly classic Fudge Bars. Carb Escape™ Bars are sold singly or in boxes of three.

Instead of replacing carbohydrates with cholesterol-containing fats, calories and hydrogenated oils, Turtle Mountain substitutes a natural dietary fiber extracted from chicory root called inulin. Carb Escapes™ pints and bars all have at least 35% dietary fiber, which is part of the recommended 20-35 grams of fiber a day.

“Healthy carbohydrate replacement is not just about dieting for weight loss; this is about dieting for health and establishing a low carbohydrate lifestyle that decreases blood sugar levels. Carb Escapes’™ great flavors, taste and texture help dieters maintain that lifestyle,” states John V. Tucker, Vice President of Marketing at Turtle Mountain.
