Coeliac Awareness Week is this month and this year's theme is ‘Thriving: Living Your Best Coeliac Life'. Coeliac New Zealand provides a wealth of information and support to people living with Coeliac Disease – you can visit their website HERE.
“The aim of this year’s campaign is to raise awareness of how people with coeliac disease can really thrive and live their best life while eating safe gluten free food. The theme, ‘Thriving: Living Your Best Coeliac Life’ aims to inspire those living with coeliac disease to live well every day and build a greater understanding about the need for gluten free food to be safe and accessible for people with coeliac disease. Throughout the week we aim to raise awareness and educate New Zealanders that coeliac disease is a serious inflammatory condition but with the right support, people with coeliac disease can truly thrive.” - Coeliac NZ
And what better way to live your best Coeliac life than to enjoy lots of gluten-free cookies?
In 2005 we launched our gluten-free cookie range, and it fast became one of our top sellers. We are obsessed with creating delicious everyday treats that taste just like homemade and through many trials, we perfected our gluten-free cookies, in part, by making our own blend of gluten-free flour (top secret, of course).
Like our ‘normal’ cookies our gluten-free cookies contain high quality ingredients using New Zealand butter and free-range eggs. They are certified and endorsed by Coeliac NZ giving confidence to shoppers with the Crossed Grain Logo.
At Molly Woppy we bake for everybody and are incredibly proud of our gluten-free range which offers our customer’s a treat food that they can share with everyone.
“If a family member has the condition, they often need separate toasters, cutlery and chopping boards to eliminate the risk of cross-contamination. With an estimated 100,000 people living with the disease in New Zealand, the number of people affected by coeliac disease is significantly more when taking into account the wider impact of families,” Coeliac NZ General Manager, Wendy Bremmer.
