In 2020, the gluten free products market is $5.6 million and is expected to grow 6.5% every year to $8.7 billion by 2027.
Gluten is a protein found largely in four grains: wheat, barley, rye, and triticale (crossbreed). Its primary function is to provide elasticity to the dough, which is then used to manufacture a line of products by adding a chewy texture and keeping the product’s shape. This protein, however, is not suitable for every consumer because it may cause a variety of health problems. The rising prevalence of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and celiac disease is predicted to fuel demand for gluten-free products in both developed and developing countries.
