    BAYSHORE, N.Y., July 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Long Island-based Nutritious
 Creations ( 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
     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;

     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."
