Celiac.com 07/15/2013 - For gluten-free Americans who love donuts, life just got a little bit better. That's because Dunkin’ Donuts has announced plans to offer gluten-free donuts and muffins in all its US stores by the end of the 2013.
The Canton-based company field tested gluten-free products in a handful of locations around Boston and Miami, news of which generated considerable social media buzz.
This news is certainly much heralded by many gluten-free eaters, so it will be interesting to see what the response is like, and how Dunkin' Donuts fares.
Certainly, the timing is right, with the market for gluten-free goods continuing to see double digit growth, and predicted to top $6.6 billion by 2017.
Moreover, a recent survey by market research firm The NPD Group, Inc. found about one in three American adults say they want to reduce or eliminate gluten from their diets. For many people,
Dunkin’s wheat-free cinnamon sugar doughnut clocks in at 320 calories, compared to 260 calories in a regular glazed doughnut. The gluten-free blueberry muffin is 400 calories -- 60 calories less than the standard version. The company said the pastries will be packaged separately to avoid cross-contamination.
Those who must eat gluten-free, and might want to grab a donut now and then, will be pleased to learn that Dunkin' Donuts says that each donut will be individually wrapped to prevent contamination.
