Gluten-Free Food Market Sales Increase 63%



February 25, 2015 by David Lennarz

According to Mintel, gluten-free food market sales increased 63% from 2012 to 2014 due to increasing awareness of celiac disease and perceived benefits of gluten-free dieting.  Mintel Food Analyst Amanda Topper believes the market will continue to grow.  Gluten-free snack foods showed an increase of 163% over the two years, the largest growth percentage of all the food categories.

It may seem like a great idea to join in on this booming market, but before you label your products as “gluten-free”, make sure the product meets U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) standards for gluten-free labeling.   In August 2013, FDA released a final rule that legally defined the term gluten-free and similar terms for the first time in history.  The rule became effective in August 2014. Products that claim to be gluten-free but do not meet FDA’s standards will be deemed misbranded.
