Update: ZonePerfect Perfectly Simple Bars

Last week I wrote about the new ZonePerfect bars that I found at Target with the “gluten-free” label on them.  I sent an email asking about oats to ensure that they were gluten-free and to see which certification company Abbott was using.

This is the response I received:

Hello Kim,

I just wanted to get back in touch with you regarding your question about certification of the Perfectly Simple ZonePerfect bars.

Perfectly Simple bars meet the FDA definition of gluten-free and are compliant with all gluten-free regulations. The bars are made with gluten-free oats.

Equipment, ingredients, and finished product are tested to meet all requirements issued by the Gluten Free Organization ( Perfectly Simple Bars are tested to meet the FDA standard of less than 20 ppm of gluten (i.e., ~1 mg/50g bar). In addition, Perfectly Simple bars are manufactured on a line that is certified and tested to be designated as gluten free by the Gluten Free Organization (

Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

So, anyone try the new Perfectly Simple bars yet?  If so, what did you think?  I hope to pick some up soon to try them out.  I can’t decide which one I want to try – they all sound good!
