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 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
