Millennials Driving Gluten-free Demand Around the Globe


Millennials' special diet needs are key to global gluten-free market strength. CC--Jack Lawrence

Celiac.com 08/11/2016 - In many ways, millennials are the special diet generation. To drive that point home, a new survey shows that a full one in five 18-34 year olds now have a food intolerance. That means 20% of millennials must either avoid certain foods, and/or eat special dietary foods to be healthy.

So, while one in three consumers are actively avoiding gluten right now, that number rises to 40% with millennials.

With the gluten-free market now worth GBP 210m, the Swedish bakers are calling upon chefs, caterers and operators to take a second look at their offerings. Andrew Ely, managing director at gluten-free cake maker Almondy, says that an in-house company survey confirms that more and more consumers are avoiding gluten, with three quarters of people having bought a gluten-free product in the last year.

Meanwhile, market researcher Mintel projects annual gluten-free market growth to increase another 50% by 2019. The research also found that over 25% of people would be more likely to order a gluten-free cake than a non-gluten-free cake, making celiac friendly desserts a solid bet for boosting profits and driving sales of hot drinks.

Companies like Almondy are perched to take full advantage of the market. A recent survey showed that nearly half of those with a gluten-intolerance had heard of the Swedish cake company, while a staggering 71% of millennials would buy Almondy's globally best-selling branded cakes, Daim Cake and Toblerone Cake.

Stay tuned for more gluten-free market research and food trends.

I know food intolerances are on the rise. I wonder what the figures are for children 0-17 years old. I bet it´s higher than the millennials (18-34 yrs).

Snickers and Reese's!

Obviously candy isn't good for anyone but Halloween is the exception of the year. That being said what is everyone's favorite candy for the night?! I'd like one night to indulge and not feel left out of the spooky night!

I get heart palpitations from milk. I had to drop corn and milk besides gluten. Any of your intolerance sneak in? Heart palpitations signal milk to me, but as you hear we are all different. Good luck

Plantar fasciitis is common in general. I'm not sure if it's more common in celiacs in particular but I don't think it necessarily means anything ominous. I will say that you should make an appointment with a regular doctor that knows you. You should never go to an urgent care for chronic pr...
