Mouthfull Cookies is a new line of gluten-free, wheat-sensitive, and celiac-friendly cookies. They are lactose-free and kosher, and possess the same taste and texture as ordinary cookies. As a special treat, each cookie is accompanied by a special, handwritten poem.

Barbara Sharon, owner of Mouthfull Cookies, believes in providing a gluten-free product that tastes like a regular cookie, and can be enjoyed by everyone. They come in mouthwatering flavors such as chocolate-chunk, oatmeal raisin, fudge, Snickerdoodles, snappy gingers and vanilla chocolate drizzle.

According to a recent article published in the journal "Gastroenterology," one in 5,000 Americans has celiac disease. Over the past decade, the number of Americans who suffer from this disorder has grown to a staggering 1 in 133. Non-celiac gluten sensitivity has been coined to describe those individuals who cannot tolerate gluten and experience symptoms similar to those with celiac disease, but lack the same antibodies and intestinal damage as seen in celiac disease.

Gluten is the spongy complex of proteins found in wheat, barley and rye that allow dough to rise. As yeast ferments sugar and releases carbon dioxide, gluten inflates like a hot air balloon, giving breads and cakes their delectable texture.

Gluten-free foods represent the fastest-growing segment of the global food-allergy and food-intolerance products market, which is projected to exceed $26 billion by 2017, according to the recent "Food Allergy and Intolerance Products: A Global Strategic Business Report" from market researcher companiesandmarkets. com, based in London.

Jewish people seem to have more trouble digesting gluten than other segments of the population. Yet it seems that everyone is jumping on the glutenfree bandwagon. The roster of celebrities who’ve eliminated gluten from their diet includes Chelsea Clinton, Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, Drew Brees and Oprah Winfrey.

Mouthfull Cookies owner Sharon states, "We have overcome the taste barrier and created superb, gluten-free cookies that are undistinguishable from cookies manufactured with wheat. We want to bring a smile to cookie lovers everywhere. Our goal is to transcend the market barrier, in addition to the taste barrier, and have everyone, regardless if they are gluten-free, purchase our cookies. Customers will enjoy reading the poems while they indulge in their cookies, for a double-dose of happiness."
