The LCMA produces a bi-monthly (six times per year) newsletter with in-depth interviews and insights to help low-carb manufacturers to gain and maintain a competitive edge.

Following are quotes to appear in the March 2004 issue:

"It wasn't until hearing Zonya Foco speak in Chicago at the Registered Dietitian's meeting did I realize what bad nutritional shape Atkins eaters had put themselves into. She discussed the fiber deficiency, Omega-3 deficiency, and the deficiencies of many other essential vitamins and minerals. I realized that with our existing technology, and discovering some new technologies, that we could very nicely help solve the nutritional deficiencies of the typical low carb diets."

“The sale of low carb products is growing
at triple digit rate. We see no slow down.”

-- Karianne Cole
-- Spokesperson , Albertsons Inc.

Albertsons is rolling out low-carb sets at 2,300 stores across the country. The sets range in size depending on the demand in the neighborhood; the largest set is up to 80 individual items.

“We’ve been waiting for manufacturers to come up with better-tasting low carb products, and we’re starting to see those now … new artesian breads, cheeses. The choices are more promising than six months ago, and address our concerns over shipping, shelf life and packaging.”

-- Larry Doyle
-- Executive Chef, T.G.I. Fridays

The restaurant chain rolled out a new low-carb menu, in partnership with Atkins, in late 2003, and is preparing for Phase II menu offerings for Spring/Summer.
