LOS ANGELES, June 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reality television star and certified health coach Tenley Molzhan joined SOYJOY® to provide gluten-free wellness and snacking tips to consumers. Molzhan, who lives a gluten-free lifestyle due to gluten intolerance, focused on ways to enjoy one's favorite foods even if avoiding gluten in the diet. Gluten, a protein found in wheat, rice, barley and many food ingredients, can cause one's body to react negatively if consumed by someone who suffers from a gluten allergy or sensitivity.

Molzahn's message was a positive one: going gluten-free doesn't mean you have to give up your favorite foods. By simply swapping out certain ingredients one can create new and delicious recipes to suit diet needs. However, with busy, on-the-go lifestyles a reality for many, the option of gluten-free food isn't always there. Molzhan, who travels a lot herself, suggests always packing pre-portioned snacks - such as nuts or dried fruits - in the morning before leaving the house. Being prepared for the day helps to ensure the best nutritious and energy-sustaining options are readily available, and keeps you from getting caught at the closest vending machine.
"I'll admit, I'm a snack bar girl. That's why I'm proud to partner with SOYJOY - all-natural, gluten-free baked snack bars made with real fruit and ground whole non-GMO soy," said Molzhan. "I practically stash a bar in every bag I have - from my gym bag to my purse, and even in my car's glove box!" Molzahn adds, "SOYJOY bars are the perfect substitute for granola bars made with artificial ingredients. At 130-140 calories per bar, it's an easy, tasty and wholesome snack for any time of day."
SOYJOY is certified gluten-free by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO), the leading gluten-free certification program in the world. While SOYJOY has always been gluten-free, this official recognition assures that those suffering from gluten intolerance or leading a gluten-free lifestyle, can snack confidently on SOYJOY. SOYJOY's packaging will feature the official "Gluten-Free" logo starting this summer.
