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.
