The demand for gluten-free foods is exploding! With more awareness being brought to Celiac Disease and a growth in special diets Goodie Girl Cookies has risen to the challenge and created delicious cookies that are gluten-free!
There is more and more talk about it but do you actually know what it is? It is the general name for proteins found in wheat, rye, barley, and triticale (a newer grain grown to resemble wheat but is tolerant to a variety of growing conditions). It is most commonly found in breads, pastas, cereals, and guess what…baked goods! For people who suffer from Celiac Disease a gluten-free diet is essential and according to the experts about 1% of our population is affected!
Celiac disease is caused by an abnormal immune response and can cause damage to the lining of the small intestine. When damage is caused it can lead to a lower volume of nutrient absorption, which no one wants! Goodie Girl Cookies set out to help relieve those who suffer and those who are simply cutting gluten out of their diets. There is no longer any need to cut out sweets and desserts because Goodie Girl Cookies has taken your favorite classic cookie recipes and made them even more delicious, all-natural, and gluten-free!
