Specialty diet guide

Specialty Diet Guide

There are more and more delicious and satisfying special diet products available today. That's good news for people with health concerns, dietary limitations or just a personal preference.

Organic (non-GMO)

These foods were grown or produced without the use of harmful chemicals, pesticides and herbicides. GMO, or genetically modified organisms, have been engineered by scientists and added to foods to enhance pest and herbicide resistance. However, risks to humans include antibiotic resistance or introducing allergens. Organic farming reduces pollution and encourages the conservation of soil and water. Look for products labeled 100% organic, Certified organic or USDA organic.

Gluten Free

These foods eliminate the protein gluten that is found in grains like wheat, rye and barley. Gluten causes digestive discomfort and inflammation in the small intenstines in people with celiac disease and gluten intolerance.

Dairy Free

Providing snack options that are dairy-free will benefit people that are lactose-intolerant or have an inability to digest dairy. These products help reduce the chance of stomach pain, cramps, headaches and other symptoms associated with lactose intolerance.

Sugar Free

Sugar Free

Decreasing the intake of refined sugar can help reduce the risk of many health complications. Sugar-free foods are a great snacking alternative for employees suffering from Type-2 diabetes, insulin resistance, heart disease and other health concerns.

Heart Healthy

Heart Healthy

Choosing snacks that are low in saturated fats and salt can help those with cholesterol and blood pressure challenges. Many packaged foods make it easy to follow the American Heart Association guidelines for a heart-healthy lifestyle. Try nuts, microwavable soups, dried fruits and more.

Calorie Restricted

Calorie Restricted

Reducing calorie intake is one part of a healthy lifestyle. The snack options found in the vending machine are typically loaded with trans fats, sugars and processed carbohydrates. Providing employees with smaller-sized treats can keep healthy eating on track, help prevent overeating and satisfy a sweet (or salty) tooth during breaks.
