After posting about Balsamic Four Onion Spread on Friday, I was alerted to another product containing barley malt extract.

Promax Nutty Butter Crunch and LS Peanut Butter Cookie Dough bars are labeled gluten-free and are certified gluten-free by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO) but barley malt extract is included in the ingredients list in the soy protein crisps used in the products.

The good news: This month (March, 2012) the company begins production on reformulated bars that will no longer include a soy protein crisp containing barley malt extract.

Please read the entire post, including manufacturer statement at http://www.glutenfreewatchdog.org/blog.php?id=8. The information on the Promax bars is added as an addendum after the information on Balsamic Four Onion Spread.

Two energy bars from Promax contain barley malt extract
