New Food Find: Allergy-Friendly Cookies Made in a Dedicated Allergy-Free Facility

New Food Find for Multiple Food Allergies: Cybele's Free-to-Eat Cookies

Cybele Pascal revealed a new line of allergy-friendly, certified gluten-free, vegan and Kosher cookies at the Natural Products Expo West last month. The cookies come in three flavors: Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Chunk Brownie and Oatmeal Raisin.


In addition to being free of the top 8 allergens (dairy, egg, soy, wheat, peanut, tree nut, fish, shellfish), the new cookies are also sesame-free. The Chocolate Chunk Brownie cookies are corn-free.


The cookies are manufactured in a dedicated gluten-free, allergen-free facility (free of the top 8 allergens). There is no risk of cross-contamination in this facility. Cybele shares with us:  

We also source our ingredients very carefully to avoid any cross contamination risk.


The cookies will begin to ship to stores in June 2012, so you will be able to find them by the end of summer.

Hi Sahba


Try PeanutFree Planet, I believe...  You need to read ingredients carefully, because they distribute products manufactured by many co's, and the ingredients vary widely by product; however, you can find snack bars and energy bars there.  Try EnerPro...they might work for you.  They work for my son, and are fairly high in protein.  He also likes the Enjoy Life ones.  I like the idea of making your own, too.  Good Luck!



Hi Sahba!  Welcome to KFA!!  The one that comes to my mind is the bars from Enjoy Life Foods.  Click on the flavors to see the ingredients lists and decide if you think they are okay in terms of refined sugar (evaporated cane sugar) and ingredients you can't pronounce.  I sort of know what you mean but my tolerance is probably different from yours.


I know that a lot of granola bars and fruit bars are indeed a risk for people with tree nut and peanut allergies.  If the Enjoy Life ones don't work for you, you might look into making a granola bar yourself.  Then you can control what goes in, both nutritionally and allergy-wise.  If you decide to go that way, come on over to the Food and Cooking forum and start a discussion about it.  We'll be happy to talk about recipes and techniques that work!


Does anyone know of a peanut/nut free snack bar that is portable, healthy and not loaded with refined sugars and ingredients that I can't even pronounce?!  I know there are products out there that are peanut free but they are not very healthy. Any help would be much appreciated!


I have noticed that oatmeal-raisin is a common flavor for allergy friendly foods...what's funny is that my daughter is allergic to oatmeal and raisins (allergic to grapes).  But I'm glad to see the chocolate chip and brownie varieties! I'll be on the lookout for these.

My daughter is allergic to milk, eggs, soy, gluten, and potatoes.  Do these cookies contain potato starch?  I notice a lot of gluten free products contain potato starch.

I had a chance to try some samples of Cybele's cookies last week and they are terrific!
