Gluten & dairy free cookies 💛

June 12, 2015

  
In most every supermarket today you will find a ‘gluten free’ section or ‘gluten free’ foods. So what does it really mean to be ‘Gluten Free’? 

A gluten-free diet is a diet that excludes the protein gluten. Gluten is found in grains such as wheat, barley and rye. A gluten-free diet is primarily used to treat celiac disease, because gluten causes inflammation in the small intestines of people with celiac disease. Another reason you might give up gluten is if you are ‘gluten intolerant’ so those who have a sensitivity to gluten or are gluten intolerant.

However these days it’s not only people with celiacs disease who choose to go ‘gluten free,’ gluten is often blamed for weight gain, bloating and stomach struggles, and so people tend to eliminate gluten rich products in order to lose weight. Celebrities going ‘g-free’ have made cutting out gluten from diets even more popular.

Today I’m introducing a great brand which is completely focused on ‘gluten free’ products for kids & adults alike. They are super fun as going gluten free doesn’t mean it needs to be boring. In 1984, two brothers recognised a need in the market place to cater for those with food allergies, and so the Orgran brand was established. Specialising in natural gluten free foods for better health and wellbeing, Orgran is now the trusted brand for Coeliacs and other allergy sufferers around the world, exporting to 55 countries worldwide.

The Orgran range is amazing, from the most delicious melt in your mouth shortbread cookies to super cute animal shaped cookies for kids in handy carry packs. The geniuses at Orgran have taken everyones needs into consideration.
