Julian Bakery’s Continuing Pathological Lies

Julian Bakery’s Continuing Pathological LiesYou know, I truly did think I was done with Heath Squier and the Julian Bakery’s Continuing Pathological Lies but hey, we all make mistakes and I made one.  I got an email from one of their customers a couple of days ago complaining about the “new size” of the “new” Paleo Wraps and wanted to maybe know what to do about it. Continue reading


Defense Nutrition vs Julian Bakery

Defense Nutrition vs Julian BakeryDefense Nutrition vs Julian Bakery. As we pretty much now know, Heath Squier and the Julian Bakery are unable to utter much truth.  In fact the only way I would know if Heath were telling the truth is if his mouth were sewn shut.  Julian Bakery is all over their own website, FaceBook and Twitter telling people how they make their Paleo & Primal Bars fresh in Oceanside, CA which seems to be pretty far from any truth I might know of.

Julian Bakery Going Around Coming Around

Julian Bakery Going Around Coming AroundThere is a term for what the Julian Bakery has practiced over the years called Economically Motivated Food Fraud EMFA and a more crude way of saying it might be “lying to make money”.  It has just come to light that not only is the Julian Bakery embroiled in a 3rd Lawsuit, they are also enmeshed in their 4th Lawsuit in as many years.  They 100% brought it on themselves, and this time as defendants in  Defense Nutrition LLC vs Julian Bakery Inc. I don’t know the charges yet but I imagine it may have to do with non-payment in the manufacturing of Paleo Bars, Paleo Protein Powders, and which may also include SAF Berbering and Glycozine.  As they say:  What Goes Around Comes Around. 

So now I think I kind of get it.  Their Paleo Bars are being sold everywhere, including even E-Bay.  Julian Bakery hasn’t had the Coconut Shred flavor for at least 6 months and I think maybe much longer. Here are the Cinnamon Rolls, the Sunflower Butter, the Blueberry Tart, the Almond Fudge, and of course you get the idea.  These are probably people who ordered them directly from either Amazon or the company itself, realized how absolutely revolting they are, and thought what-the-heck let’s try E-Bay.  So on to the Paleo Wraps story… Continue reading


Just Delicious Diabetic Bakery Low Carb Scam

Just Delicious Diabetic BakeryYep, another low carb scam…let alone they call themselves the Just Delicious Diabetic Bakery.  This bakery, according to owner Nanette Goin, has been selling products to hospitals, on line sales nationwide and through the Kroger Corp for 7 years and if that’s not bad enough news?  They are right in my back yard here in Portland, OR.  Continue reading


Moores Law As Applied To Most Alternative Sweeteners

Lily PondMoore’s Law.  Do you know what it is? Question: A lily pad grows so that each day it doubles its size in (area). On the 30th day it completely covers the pond choking out all life. On what day of its growth was the pond half covered?  See bottom for the answer.

The lily pad coverage grows very slowly in the first several days and then as it exponentially grows, the time shortens very quickly. Continue reading


Can Diabetes Really Be Cured? Yet?

Can Diabetes Really Be Cured?Can Diabetes Really Be Cured? I started writing this post at least a month ago and because of “other things” it has been on the shelf percolating. We all know that when something sits for a while thoughts can change. I am now ready to charge after Dr. Jason Fung and his cadre of supporters now saying that diabetes can be “CURED” and I say:  The Emperor Has No Clothes. Continue reading


Julian Bakery Fakery Crackery

Sugar Alcohols (Polyols) And Why I Don’t Use Them

Swerve SweetenerThere are many sugar alcohol products out there and they are not, as many people believe, “free” carbohydrates. When you look at a nutritional label for any given product containing sugar alcohols you can not simply subtract the total gram count from the carb count-it is more complex than it seems. Their common names are: Erythritol, Isomalt, Lactitol, Maltitol, Mannitol, Sorbitol, Xylitol.

The effects sugar alcohols have on your blood glucose can vary so it is difficult to know how they will affect your levels every time. Continue reading


Amazon Sues Over Fake Reviews

Fake Amazon Reviews 1OK, I think I now have the final pieces to the Amazon Fake Reviews puzzle. One of the questions I have always asked myself was how, all of a sudden, the Julian Bakery’s 5 star reviews began showing as Verified Purchases and now I think I have the answer. Continue reading


Victoria’s Review Of More Julian Bakery Chicanery

Moldy Chocolate Mint Paleo BarAs stated elsewhere, I have a Google alert for the Julian Bakery and once in awhile something juicy comes to my inbox.  This was one of those times. Here is Victoria’s Julian Bakery Paleo Protein Bars: A Review  Fast forward a couple of days after Victoria’s review and as if by magic a new “View Lab Results” appeared on the Julian Bakery site as 230 calories which leads me to believe they have taken some original letterhead from some Canadian Testing Laboratory and put their own nutritional label on it.  This would be so ILLEGAL. I can tell you from experience it is totally impossible to get a product tested (again) and have results back in two days and there is no way in HELL any testing laboratory would put this statement on its lab report:  Net Carbs=Total Carbs –Fibre –Sugar Alcohols Total Dietary Fiber = includes IMO Fiber.   According to the Julian Bakery web page this product does not even have any sugar alcohols listed. Chocolate Mint Paleo Protein Bars. There is no receiving date of this product, no results date, and this is definitely not like any lab results I have ever seen and I have seen many of them. I want to reiterate these are not Lab Results.  It is (I believe) a fictitious and totally made up “new” nutritional label.  I think what we are seeing here is the total breakdown of the Julian Bakery and their web of lies and deceit.

Here is Victoria’s follow-up three days later Oh, This Means War and the Julian Bakery email responses are priceless.  Julian’s Bakery: Worst Customer Service! Her last words are:  On that note …buyer beware!

Mauzone Mania-Another Low Carb Scam Artist Discovered

MM Chocolate BiscottiThere is now a new low carb scam artist on the block going by the name Mauzone Mania and they are being sued. Mauzone Mania Lawsuit  I didn’t even discover them, much to my chagrin.  I have said there are so many falsely labeled low carb products being marketed to diabetics and the low carb community that it’s pretty hard to keep up with them.  I kind of have to pick and choose and go after the most egregious and apparently the law firm Gainey McKenna & Egleston located in NJ and NY believes this company is pretty bad.  Below are some pictures of the offending products along with a chart showing the lab tested differences and some of the differences… are humongous.  There are more flavors available in many of the products shown.

Partial List Of Julian Bakery Paid Fake Amazon Reviewers

Moldy Paleo Bar VideoSince Amazon has chosen to cherry pick and take down just a few of the Paid Fake Reviewers (that I reported earlier) I am going to start listing them here and see if I can get some action this way.  I am only one person so of course it would be impossible for me to find the 100’s of 1,000’s of Amazon’s site-wide fake reviews but get this-the few they have taken down?  Many of the reviews still remain on the products reviewed.

Anatomy Of An Amazon Sponsored Fake Reviewer

Fake Amazon Reviews 1Have you ever purchased anything from Amazon? This article is for you even if you are one of the few who have not.

Bridget Hidden Julian Bakery Review on Amazon

Consumers Beware: Amazon Reviews Are Being Deleted, Hidden And Faked

Amazon Reviews HiddenFake Amazon Reviews 1Amazon Deleted Reviews

Oh yeah, you read it right and I have ample proof below.  Do you think Amazon cares? NO, NO, and HELL NO. Amazon is the company that allows a seller to “HIDE” any review they deem detrimental and which brings down averages. This is now not about Julian Bakery poisoning diabetics, this is about poisoning the whole of the Amazon Review system.  There is at least one Amazon “Vine Voice Reviewer” Linda R. Hendrex “Rubicon”VINE VOICE that believes it is impossible to delete a review and technically she is right but only technically.  What’s the difference between deleting, hiding or removing a review so that the public cannot make an intelligent buying decision based on ALL a seller’s product reviews? I am here to let her know that her beloved Amazon not only doesn’t care but lets it go unchecked after having been notified about it by multiple people, including yours truly.

Linda says:   Continue reading


Julian Bakery Is Breaking Amazon Seller Policies

Julian Bakery is now offering free Paleo Protein Bars on Amazon in exchange for a 5 Star Review and it is my belief this is against the Amazon Sellers Policies. Amazon says…”If you offer a free product, it must be clear that you are soliciting an unbiased review. The free product must be provided in advance; no refunds are permitted after the review is written. Review solicitations that ask for only positive reviews or that offer compensation are prohibited“.  So read the reviews below and you be the judge.  Kinda makes you question the Amazons Reviews System doesn’t it?  But hey, Amazon makes their $$$$$.  Julian Bakery has long been famous for purchasing 1,000’s of fake reviews but… Continue reading


Julian Bakery, Cain Credicott, & Paleo Magazine

Paleo Magazine Logo 1I began contact with Cain Credicott, founder and editor of Paleo Magazine, regarding his centerfold advertising of the new Julian Bakery Paleo Protein Bars on February 17th. I sent a “care package” for him to try the bars, including the falsely labeled bars test results and told him I had filed yet another formal FDA complaint. His brief response was that he had gotten the package and he would be looking into it.  Fast forward… Continue reading


The Low Carb WiO Diet Scam

The Low Carb WiO Diet Scam is located in West Jordan, Utah and is now the newest and perhaps the worst low carb scam I have encountered to date…and…this is a dandy folks.  WiO Diet stands for Weight Is Over your last Diet pretty tricky huh?  The brains behind this low carb scam company?  Jason B. Whitney & Nirav Dhruv and this is charlatanism & quackery at its best.

Julian Bakery Is Falsely Labeling Their New Paleo Protein Bars-They Are…Not So Tasty…And…They Are Moldy Too

Whew!  Julian Bakery is being sued by FedEx for $241,274.27  This is the initial filing by FedEx and as more becomes available to me I will post it here. Court Docs FedEx vs Julian Bakery.

Whey Low Sugar Scam

Whey Low Sugar ScamI have gotten a lot of people coming to my website who google Whey Low Sugar Scam.  Upon closer inspection this product, as far as I can tell, is nearly identical to white table sugar. It has 4g carbs per teaspoon and table sugar has 4.2g carbs per teaspoon with a difference of .2g per teaspoon which seems to me a ridiculously microscopic difference.
They advertise it as sugar made healthy (see picture) and as we know sugar is sugar is sugar, and sugar is anything but healthy.  The funny (pathetic) thing it is all spelled out on their website.

Beware The New Truvia Brown Sugar Blend

Beware The New Truvia Brown Sugar BlendBeware The New Truvia Brown Sugar Blend and why it is a very bad investment. Many diabetics & lowcarbers have been using Truvia® for years and the maker of this product (Cargill) realizes what brand identification & brand loyalty is and they are now playing on this. The original Truvia® is composed of erythritol (a sugar alcohol), stevia leaf extract, and ‘natural flavors’ whatever that is. (Be sure to read at the bottom regarding the two Truvia® lawsuits) The new Truvia® Brown Sugar Blend is a completely different animal consisting of erythritol, sugar, molasses, and stevia leaf extract. See any differences in the ingredients? Continue reading


More Evidence Of Heath Squier’s Pathological Lying

More Evidence Of Heath Squier's Pathological LyingMore Evidence Of Heath Squier's Pathological LyingIt seems to me that Heath Squier, owner and speaking for the Julian Bakery, is unable to tell the truth yet again.  Below is a screen shot of Heath answering the question on Amazon: How big are the wraps? Heath’s answer:  8”x8”.

Clearly from the picture I took they are 7”x7”. OK that’s settled: The Wraps are only 7”x7”.

Julian Bakery Lawsuit Dismissal

Heath Squier has dismissed his own lawsuit

This is my explanation of the whole story and why he dismissed it.  Julian Bakery Lawsuit

Sami’s Bakery, Low Carb Emporium & Carb Krunchers

Sami's BreadThis is a fascinating story. 

Sami’s Bakery obtained its domain name in May of 2003. Sami’s Bakery is located on the East Coast in Tampa, FL and was a very small local bakery until they hooked up with Lori Smith of “Low Carb Emporium” in Las Vegas NV.  Sami’s started private labeling low carb bread products for Low Carb Emporium under this same name.  As the sales of these products went nuts Sami’s had to enlarge their baking facilities.  On February 7th, 2005 Low Carb Emporium was busted by the CBS TV station in Los Angeles and PR Newswire Logoreported by pr newswire for selling these bogus low carb bread products.  Please see article here:

I have now had a total of five Sami’s supposed low carb products tested and they have all flunked the test. Five Sami’s Bakery Breads vs Lab Results Compared Side By Side  See for yourself.  I also had the priviledge of speaking with Mary Schluckebier the Executive Director of the Celiacs Support Association who told me in no uncertain terms that Sami’s gluten free products were NOT gluten free. The FDA says gluten free is anything <20PPM and Sami’s tested >5000PPM.  Subsequently there were warnings put out by many & various people associated with CSA.

OregonianOregonians Lois Kaplan and Bo Bodenschatz who owned LoBo’s Low Carb World in Salem, OR took Low Carb Emporium to task and had their breads tested through Exova Laboratories right here in Portland where I have had all my testing done.  This is a terrific article done by a journalist from our local newspaper The Oregonian. Please read:

Lori Smith never would disclose the name of her manufacturer as the above article states but I have information that it was Sami’s Bakery in Tampa.  I was super excited to see that Lois and Bo lived just down the road from me in Salem but alas too much time had elapsed and as I spent endless time trying to get in contact with them, I ran into one dead end after another.

On December 1st, 2003 a blog thread on low carb friends began regarding “Low Carb Emporium” brand breads, bagels, and rolls but only ran for 3 days.  It seems everyone loved the Low Carb Emporium products because duh…it was real bread.  Pure Foods Low Carb Market in Los Angeles, CA which had been carrying the Low Carb Emporium breads and bagels quickly distanced themselves.  With the testing of the Low Carb Emporium’s breads, coupled with the pr newswire article and the attending bad press, Low Carb Emporium shuttered their doors.

Sami-s-BakeryOK.  Sami’s has now enlarged the baking facilities but has lost his big buyer.  What to do now?  Get a partner and start producing another bogus line of low carb breads; this time under the name Carb Krunchers.  All goes swimmingly until the partners have a falling out.  They split and Sami’s Bakery decides to produce their own line of low carb bread products which he sells to this day.  He has his own website; his breads are sold along the East Coast, thru the internet, and are in scores of grocery stores in Florida.  Virtually the same ingredients and same nutritionals as the Carb Krunchers (Duh…Carb Krunchers was Sami’s recipe).  These products are also sold on the low carb store website:

I want to emphasize that I DO NOT inject insulin and I DO NOT take any diabetic drugs which in my opinion makes me a perfect guinea pig to test any supposed low carb product.
