My husband and I began following Jorge Cruise's "Belly Fat Cure" plan in March of 2011. Needing to keep my motivation up, and also wanting an archive to read back over, I decided to join the legion of those people already tracking their progress.

I double-checked my packaging at home for the Oat, Flax & Whole Wheat pitas in my last post. It definitely did not include Sucralose in the listing. So I emailed their quality contact, attached the two ingredient lists and asked which was correct.

I just heard back this morning:
   Sorry for the delay in replying to your question.
    We eliminated the sucralose from the pita a couple of years ago.  Thanks for pointing out the discrepancy on the website.  I have noted to have the nutrition info updated on the site.  That's handled by an IT consultant.
    Bottom line is that there is no sucralose in the pita.
Best regards,

Fantastic news for us! Remember, these specific pitas have ZERO sugar, and just 8g of carbs per serving with a nice healthy 4g of fiber. And pitas have so many uses!

So go support Joseph's Middle East Bakery! They do ship some of their products from their website if you can't find it from your preferred low carb supplier.


  1. Awesome news on that. I know some things are hard to find for us w/o the artificial stuff in there.
    Have a great weekend. :-)

  2. I was so glad you posted about the Joseph's Oat, Flax & Whole Wheat pitas. I found those at the BJ's where I live and thought they might be too good to be true. I was really relieved that you checked them out. I like to make little pizza's on the grill with them. They aren't at the store every time I go, so next time I'm going to stock up on them by freezing a few packages.
