BAYSHORE, N.Y., July 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Long Island-based Nutritious Creations (http://www.snacksforlife.com) has introduced a complete line of gluten-free cookies. Free of all transfats and cholesterol, and containing no dairy, refined sugars, wheat or egg products, the new cookies were developed to help people with a wide variety of dietary restrictions to still be able to enjoy "sweet" snack foods. The entire line has no hydrogenated oils, either, which are found in the vast majority of all crackers and cookies on the market today. Kosher under the certification of the Kof-K label, the gluten-free line will be available in health and convenience stores nationwide. The cookies are available in eight delicious flavors (carrot cake, chocolate chip, coconut chip, banana, almond, Belgian chocolate, lemon, and vanilla-hazelnut) and are a good snack option for adults and children, alike. Individuals with celiac and other gastrointestinal diseases, who in the past have had few snack food options, are a particular target market in this line's development. The three-ounce cookies are wrapped and sold individually. Despite all- natural ingredients and uncompromised commitment to health, the cookies have been described as soft and chewy and, most importantly, delicious. Sample Nutrition Facts for 3oz. Cookie: -- Serving Size: 1.5oz/43g, Servings Per Package: 2 -- Amount Per Serving: calories 180; fat calories 70; total fat 8g; saturated fat 0.5g; trans fat 0; cholesterol 0; sodium 160mg; total carbs 28g; fiber 1g; sugars 15g; protein 2g. According to Robin Patrusky, president of Nutritious Creations, the gluten-free cookie presents a remarkable new alternative for consumers interested in a healthy cookie that doesn't compromise on taste. "We knew that an increasing number of people are coming to recognize the value of health foods as a part of a regular daily diet," Ms. Patrusky explains. "At the same time, we appreciate that people are frustrated by the realization that 'healthy' often means 'less tasty' or 'less enjoyable.' Nutritious Creations was established to change that stigma about health foods and we're confident that our gluten-free line will be successful in that regard."
