Global Market for Gluten Free Flours Set to Take Off by 2027

Celiac.com 05/13/2017 - Currently, a gluten-free diet is the only treatment recommended for people with celiac disease, or other medical sensitivities to gluten, especially those who show symptoms of gluten intolerance, such as vomiting and chronic diarrhea.

Those folks may be in for a pleasant surprise, as the global market for various types of gluten-free flours looks set to takeoff over the next few years, driven in part by gluten-free flours made from amaranth, corn, maize, coconut and/or beans, among others. Gluten-free flours offer a number of benefits, including very high protein, good texture, and, in many cases, higher nutritional value and fiber content, compared with other grains. Many gluten-free flours make an excellent thickener for soups and sauces, and a good addition to all purpose of baking flour.

Overall, the rapid growth of the global market for gluten-free flours is due, at least in part, to increasing popularity within the processed food industry, growing urbanization and an increase in demand by an aging population. Another major factor is a growing concern with health-related issues, such as obesity, diabetes, and weight management, among others.

These, along with perceived generic health benefits are expected to drive a rapidly increasing demand for gluten-free flours in the coming years. However, lack of awareness in developing countries regarding the need and benefits of gluten free flours, along with the high cost of gluten free flours, as compared to wheat flours, may serve to dampen expected growth in the gluten-free flours market in near future.

Driven partly by ready availability, demand for gluten-free flours will come mainly from the fast growing bakery sector, especially as products like gluten-free biscuits become more popular, spurring the use of gluten free flours ingredients such as bean flour, chia seeds, and nut flours along with binders such as guar gum, xanthan, and baking powder.

Lastly, market analysts expect the commercial availability of pre-mixed gluten-free flour mixes to increase both supply and demand for gluten-free baked goods.

So a big thank you to everyone that's responded. I'll confess I was hoping someone was going to post something along these lines: But no-one did. Instead you've posted some very good, sensible advice which makes a lot of sense to me. I've since read online that trace amounts, such as you...

That's such a lovely offer I'm almost sad to tell you I'm now the proud owner of 3 boxes but thanks so much in any case. That was really nice of you. Wow is that the case for all Dairy milk or just the Heroes? That this comes just as I'm trying to kick the milk habit properly is just.......

Woah, sounds like a rollercoaster for sure. Am i to assume this to be permanent then?

I just wasn't sure if it can be absorbed through cuts and broken skin, and enter the bloodstream. Their bottoms aren't cut and don't have deep wounds, but they get raw and rashy. That's why I was concerned, or at least curious.

I doubt there is any gluten in " oat kernel extract". But the gluten has to get to your small intestines to cause a Celiac reaction. iac rwactio
