REDUCED CARB-LOW CALORIE ALTERNATIVE BAGELS MADE WITH FACTS HEALTHY LIFESTYLE PREMIX BECOMING PREFERRED CHOICE FOR WAISTLINE WATCHERS IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
Los Angeles, CA April 17, 2003 FACT Corporation (PRWEB) April 18, 2003
of Freehold, New Jersey and Western Bagel Baking Corporation of Van Nuys, California say the response to the launch of the reduced digestible carbohydrate, low calorie Alternative Bagelconscious consumers has exceeded expectations to date.
Western Bagel began using our unique, Healthy Lifestyle premix in two bagel products at its thirteen company-owned stores in Southern California, as well as through giant food retailer, Albertsons, only a few months ago, and initial responses indicate that the products are already a huge success, said Jacqueline Danforth, President of FACT. FACTs premixes are the core for a variety of functional products that fit almost any diet regimen, even such popular weight-loss programs as Weight Watchers, Dr. Atkins, Sugar Busters, Jenny Craig and The Zone.
Suitable for foods such as breads, bagels and pastas as well as a variety of sweet baked goods, the FACT line of premixes are a boon for dieters who no longer want to be one of the more than 140 million adults in the United States estimated to be overweight.
Western Bagels Marketing Director, Corie Ustin, said the low-carb bagels, known as the Alternative Bagel, meet the requirements of health-conscious dieters without sacrificing taste and texture.
Ms. Ustin added that the overwhelming response to date has prompted Western Bagel to expand its distribution to 300+ Albertsons stores in Southern California, as well as to Food4Less and Ralphs, both owned by The Kroger Company, one of the largest food retail companies in the United States, and to Gelsons supermarkets, bringing the total number of stores expected to carry the Alternative Bagel to well over 750. There are also plans for expansion of the Alternative Bagel line to introduce a wider variety of flavors, including Cinnamon Spice and Sweet Wheat, as well as the impending introduction of the product line to Publix, the employee-owned Florida supermarket chain.
Rolf Richter, COO of FACT commented, Its wonderful to see timely success for early adapters such as our first customer, Western Bagel, with the launch of this line of health conscious, functional bagels. We intend to see replication of this phenomenon over several different product categories over the course of the year.
FACT Corporation is positioning itself to become a leading producer of Healthy Lifestyle brand premix for functional products that deliver specific health benefits to consumers. Formed in 1947, Western Bagel Baking Corporation is one of the worlds largest bagel producers with national and international distribution under the Western Bagel and other brand names.

Questioning the Wisdom of Low Carb Modified Foods
If you are following a low carb diet and you think eating "low carb" versions of things like pancakes and bread is smart, think again. You'll gain weight as soon as you add real carbs (water weight mostly), any carbs, and you will be paying high prices for unhealthy food in the bargain. Instead eat whole foods such as whole baked potatoes, fresh carrots, salads, vegetable soups, bean dishes. Eat the real thing!
Stay away from the modified versions whether low fat, low carb, or low anything. Low carb means added artificial sweeteners and who knows what to stretch the fiber, low fat usually means added sugar, low calorie is usually crappy tasting. Why pay extra for this trickery?
If you want to lose weight and keep that weight off a few things must happen. Your diet must include healthier foods in greater quantity than unhealthy foods. I'm not talking "good" or "bad" foods. Any food is fine, in moderation. The trick is moderation. I love cake but I don't eat it every day. I love all kinds of sweets but I don't over indulge every day. If I did I'd gain weight, and it really is that simple. I choose to stay in shape by eating the goodies when I want, but my desire is infrequent because I want even more to maintain my size.
What does eating pancakes do for me? It makes me want syrup, and maybe something sweet later that day. It sets me up for craving sugary sweet foods. That may not be what I really want, especially if I'm trying to lose a few pounds.
What about bread? Wouldn't I be better off eating the low carb bread? No. Choose a healthy, whole grain bread. The low carb brands are not whole grain, they are white flour, with added corn starch and artificial sweeteners. They reduce the size of the loaf, and slice the pieces teeny tiny then claim, "Only 4 Net Carbs per Slice" or something equally ridiculous. Check the loaf. Is a sandwich made with teensy sized pieces of bread going to satisfy you or is it going to make you want another sandwich? Eat the real thing, and you'll feel satisfied from having eaten an adult sized sandwich, and you won't feel deprived or crave for more.
