Discontinued Products                


        The Land of Lost and Discontinued Products...
If you're a seasoned low carber that's been shopping online for awhile now, you are already aware that often times products disappear from the market for one reason or another... and on a few occasions, we've rescinded our recommendation of a product for extreme reasons as well. So when an item we've spotlighted here goes to extinction, we usually get letters asking about it. It seemed high time we maintained a list of such items with a little explanation where possible to help clear up a few mysteries, hence this page. Have we missed listing something here? If so, drop us a line at discontinued@lowcarbluxury.com.


  Unavailable Products         Rescinded Product Reviews




                                  GONE FROM THE SHELVES
   P R O D U C T   N A M E :
  Cottee's Gelatins
  REASON/STATUS:
  Import Issues.

  Cottee's Gelatins, imported from Australia were terrific because they offered a
  very intense fruit flavor and fast gel-ing, but were Splenda sweetened. While
  popular, the FDA disapproved of their import to the U.S. because the food colors
  (dyes) they used were not FDA approved colors.

                  
   P R O D U C T   N A M E :
  Carbolite Splenda-Based Granulated Sugar Substitute
  REASON/STATUS:
  Sucralose table-top licensing issues.

  Carbolite's granulated sweetener was built on a fiber foundation; rather than
  a higher-carb filler like maltodextrin. It used a mix of guar gum and inulin
  with the sucralose.

                  
   P R O D U C T   N A M E :
  Splenda - Liquid and Tablet Form
  REASON/STATUS:
  Import Issues.

  McNeil, patent/license holder in the U.S. for sucralose stopped the import of
  foreign (without fillers) variations of Splenda brand sweetener.

                  
   P R O D U C T   N A M E :
  Diet Jones Soda
  REASON/STATUS:
  Company discontinued product line in diet version.

  Jones discontinued their diet line of Diet Lime Cola, Diet Orange Soda, and Diet
  FuFu Berry; leaving only Diet Black Cherry (their weakest flavor in our opinion),
  and Diet Cream Soda. They claim the diet versions didn't sell well. We never
  found any stores that carried the diet versions, and those we asked were never
  made aware by Jones salesmen that the diet versions existed. Think that might
  be why the diet versions didn't sell well?

                  
   P R O D U C T   N A M E :
  Darrell Lea Chocolate Bars
  REASON/STATUS:
  Importing Discontinued.

  Imported from Australia, Darrell Lea Chocolate Bars were one of the first bars in
  America to contain Splenda and to be marketed to low carbers.

                  
   P R O D U C T   N A M E :
  Nature Sweet Brand Sweet Balance
  REASON/STATUS:
  Discontinued due to patent/licensing issues.

  Largo, Florida company that packaged granulated low glycemic sweetener from
  the Lo Han fruit grown in the southern provinces of China. It was 15 to 20
  times sweeter than sugar.

                  
   P R O D U C T   N A M E :
  Nature's Flavors Vanilla High Intensity Sucralose Sweetener
  REASON/STATUS:
  Sucralose table-top licensing issues.

  Liquid form of high intensity sucralose sweetener given a hint of vanilla
  yet still unable to hold McNeil (patent/license holder in the U.S. for
  sucralose) at bay. Pulled from market.

                  
   P R O D U C T   N A M E :
  Porkrind.com's Flavored Pork Rinds
  REASON/STATUS:
  Discontinued by Manufacturer.

  Included flavors like Chili Cheese, Lemon, and Texas Style Hot.

                  
   P R O D U C T   N A M E :
  Premiere Elite Bars
  REASON/STATUS:
  Manufacturer discontinued product.

  Premier's Elite Bars in Chocolate Banana and Raspberry were a favorite for a
  time. They've since been discontinued in favor or Premier's "Premier Eight" Line.

                  
   P R O D U C T   N A M E :
  Protein Revolution Low Carb Bars
  REASON/STATUS:
  Manufacturer discontinued product.

  Low Glycemic Technologies made bars in Peanut Butter & Jelly, Apple
  Cinnamon Spice Cake, and Hazelnut Toffee Crunch.

                  

            

                                  REVIEW/RECOMMENDATION RESCINDED
   P R O D U C T   N A M E :
  O'So Lo Ready-Baked Muffins
  REASON/STATUS:
  Unethical Business Practices.

  Low Carb Luxury cannot in good conscience recommend any product from this
  manufacturer.

                  
   P R O D U C T   N A M E :
  Sugar Free Paradise Baked Goods
  REASON/STATUS:
  Nutrition Information/Discrepancies.

  Low Carb Luxury was unable to determine proper nutrition information for these
  products after numerous labeling discrepencies, and many consumer complaints.

                  
   P R O D U C T   N A M E :
  AspenIceCream.com Products/Baked Goods
  REASON/STATUS:
  Nutrition Information/Discrepancies; Unethical Business Practices.

  Low Carb Luxury was unable to determine proper nutrition information for these
  products after numerous labeling discrepencies, and many consumer complaints.
  Calls and letters went unanswered and several customers (including me) were
  charged more than once for orders.

                  
   P R O D U C T   N A M E :
  Robbin's Nest Cake Rolls & Cheesecake
  REASON/STATUS:
  Nutrition Information Discrepancies and possible Mislabeling.

  An influential person in the low carb community paid to have the cake rolls lab
  tested when he had a serious concern over the accuracy of their labeling. The
  results showed the product contained significantly higher carbs than were reported
  by the company and on labels. When brought to the attention of said company,
  they dismissed these results.

  This information was sent to us by one of our most trusted low carb merchants.
  No further information is available at this time. However, in light of this information,
  we felt the safest course was to remove the reviews.

                  
   P R O D U C T   N A M E :
  Mountain Bread Wraps
  REASON/STATUS:
  Nutrition Information/Discrepancies.

  Low Carb Luxury was unable to determine proper nutrition information for this
  product after labeling discrepencies, and consumer complaints.
