Small Canadian Food Bar Company Makes Large Tsunami Relief Donation

(ALBERTA, Canada) . . . March 28, 2005. . . Saul Katz, the President of Solo GI Nutrition Inc., a small nutrition wellness manufacturer based in Western Canada has sent 46,000 bars of its newest product, SOLO GI™ Low Glycemic Bars, to the victims of the Southeast Asia Tsunami. The contribution was made through the Vitamin Angel Alliance based in Santa Barbara, California.

Katz said, “There is a critical need for healthy packaged foods. Each of us must do what we can to prevent a greater rift between those that have and those who do not have access to good nutritional supplementation. Vitamin Angel made it possible for us to effectively deliver good nutrition to those most vulnerable and in their time of need. Solo GI’s new low glycemic bars are particularly useful for the survivors because the bars deliver nutritional balance and energy on a slow release basis, enabling sustained energy and a feeling of fullness longer to help people live better”.

Howard Schiffer, president if the Vitamin Angel Alliance said, “Providing basic nutrition to stave off disease is absolutely critical. Solo GI’s™ Low Glycemic Bars will help us in two ways, first to provide food on a daily basis and second, to provide the kind of nutritionally validated food that will help lead to better health and wellness. We wish to thank Solo GI Nutrition for its generous contribution.”
Each delicious Solo GI™ bar delivers 23 vitamins and minerals, contains a good source of fiber, protein and carbohydrate and helps prevent blood sugar and energy swings. These bars contain good fats and good carbs without trans fats, artificial sweeteners, sugar alcohols and or high fructose corn syrup. Because Solo GI™ Low Glycemic Bars are digested more slowly they are ideal for weight management, as they provide sustained energy and prevent the spike and crash that can lead to food cravings.

Vitamin Angel Alliance is a non-profit, non-sectarian organization dedicated to providing basic nutrition and fighting vitamin A deficiency blindness around the world since 1994. Additional information on the Alliance may be found at
