St. Louis, MO - Extend Nutrition has recently been approved to display a doctor's seal of approval, a major benefit granted by consumer protection service Doctor Trusted.

The nutritional company, which makes snacks created by Dr. Francine Kaufman, passed a strict application process. The process involves careful evaluation by a doctor of Extend Nutrition’s website and products or services offered.

In addition, the review process involves predetermined criteria that include fair pricing and return criteria, reasonable medical claims, easy-to-locate customer service and protection of sensitive customer data, among others.

The entire process promotes consumer safety surrounding health products and services, and helps Extend Nutrition strengthen trust in their brand as an online health business.

“We are excited that Extend Nutrition has been recognized for passing each of these criteria. It provides an easy, highly visible way for customers to check legitimacy on their own before making a purchase,” said Jonathan Lindberg, Outreach Manager at Extend Nutrition.“It’s another way we can help our customers feel confident about making healthy snack choices.”

The seal protects customers as well as business owners by elevating moral business practices and accountability.

Extend Nutrition has been a trusted snack food brand since the late 1990s. Dr. Kaufman, a world-renowned endocrinologist and past president of the American Diabetes Association, invented the snack food line of protein bars, protein shake mixes, and crunchy snacks.

Extend Nutrition snacks help stabilize blood sugar for 6 to 9 hours. This helps to prevent blood sugar swings, which can wreak havoc on metabolism.
