High Protein/Low Carb
Please be advised that before starting any diet, you need to consult your medical professional. Your body burns carbohydrates and fat for energy. With a high protein, low carbohydrate approach to dieting you can increase your protein intake by eating healthy meat products and limiting your carbohydrates like white sugar and breads so that your body can easily burn more fat.
The Feingold Association of the United States is dedicated to helping children and adults apply proven dietary techniques for better behavior, learning and health. In 1973, Benjamin Feingold M.D., a pediatric allergist from California proposed that salicylates, artificial colors and artificial flavors caused hyperactivity in children. To treat this condition, Feingold recommended a diet that was free of such chemicals. The rest, they say, is history. Many parents who have followed Feingold's lifestyle and dietary changes have reported improvement in the child's behavior. Wellshire Farms is pleased to be a member of the Feingold Association and we are proud that many of our products meet the Feingold criteria for healthy eating and lifestyle.

Gluten FreeCeliac disease is a digestive condition triggered by the consumption of the protein Gluten. Gluten is found in bread, pasta, cookies, pizza crust and other foods containing wheat, barley and rye. When someone with this disease eats foods containing Gluten, an immune reaction occurs in the small intestine resulting in damage to the surface of this intestine and causes the inability to absorb certain nutrients in food. Eventually this causes malabsorption, which in turn causes vitamin deficiencies in the brain, nervous system, bones, liver and other organs that need vital nourishment.
