“The gluten-free food category will continue to grow as an increasing number of manufacturers develop better-tasting and more nutritious gluten-free foods. Category appeal beyond those with celiac disease, coupled with a new FDA ruling for gluten-free product labeling, suggests the category will grow out of its marker as just another diet trend.”
– Amanda Topper, Food Analyst
Some questions answered in this report include:
The $10.5-billion gluten-free food and beverage industry has grown 44% from 2011-13 as the rate of celiac disease diagnoses and awareness of, and interest in, gluten-free foods increase. Some 24% of consumers currently eat, or have someone in their household who eats, gluten-free foods. Perceptions of gluten-free foods have moved from being bland, boring substitutes for gluten-containing products to everyday items that appeal to those with and without a gluten allergy. Three quarters (75%) of consumers who do not have celiac disease or sensitivity to gluten eat these foods because they believe they are healthier, despite the lack of any scientific research confirming the validity of this theory.
This health halo will continue to propel the category over the next few years, especially as an increasing number of companies join the gluten-free category, producing higher-quality foods and beverages that have a broad appeal. August 2013 FDA regulation on gluten-free product claims will now set the industry standard and make it easier for consumers to shop for their gluten-free lifestyle. Mintel predicts the gluten-free food and beverage market will grow 48% from 2013-16, to $15.6 billion, at current prices.
