Fad or Not, Gluten-free Foods Making Big Impact on Consumers

Celiac.com 02/03/2016 - Gluten-free foods are more popular than ever, higher in quality, and increasingly seen as worth premium prices paid by consumers, according to a new research report by Mintel.

Mintel's latest numbers show that 25 percent of consumers surveyed report that they consume gluten-free foods regularly, a whopping 67 percent increase from 2013.

At the same time, the report also suggests that nearly 50 percent of consumers surveyed feel that the explosion of gluten-free foods is basically a fad, compared with just 31 percent in 2013.

Mintel's report also shows that the vast majority of those who do consume gluten-free food are happy with existing gluten-free options, and that 35 percent feel that gluten-free foods quality are of higher than in the past.

The greater availability and higher quality of gluten-free foods has resulted in a greater willingness on the part of consumers to pay premium prices for gluten-free products. The survey reflects this, with 26 percent of consumers who reporting that gluten-free foods are worth their higher prices. All of these figures are higher than those reported in a similar 2013 survey by Mintel.

For those seeking to keep tabs on the gluten-free food industry, both in the US and beyond, Mintel compiles a wide variety of market reports.

I wonder how many of the skeptics have gluten intolerance issues or know someone who after a French fry cooked in cross contaminated oil is sicker than a dog. I will not even eat fries out anymore, even if they say they have a dedicated gluten free fryer.

Thank you for trying Kerry! I was unable to open the link though. Another celiac.com page pops up telling me I do not have an account for it.

I don't use these things they are usually sodium bombs!

I don't Usually use the super processed stuff, which this is. I use the spices or the gluten free spice mixes. I assume maybe something just didn't set well but I doubt it's gluten because I believe they're reputable. My husband doesn't have celiac and said his tummy is weird too, so I doubt it's gluten. I'll call them today to be sure.

I use them, too.
