Celiac.com 06/07/2017 - After nearly a decade of high double-digit growth, the US market for gluten-free foods is set to level off to single digit rates in coming years, according to a study from Research and Markets.

The firm's report, titled Gluten-Free Foods in the U.S., 5th Edition, looks at sales of gluten-free food across nine product categories, specifically traditional grain-based salty snacks and crackers, bread, pasta, cereal, making mix, cookies, flour and frozen dough.

The report covers gluten-free food products sold through all types of retail outlets, including supermarkets, discount stores and super-centers, warehouse clubs, and mass merchandisers, along with convenience stores, drugstores, health and natural food stores, dollar stores, farms and farmers' markets. The report projects sales of more than $2 billion in 2020, up nearly $400 million from 2015.

Researchers included products based on the possibility that they could be formulated with gluten, and whether they were clearly labeled and marketed as gluten-free.

The company culls data for sales and market size from a proprietary Packaged Facts national online consumer survey conducted in July/August 2014; IRI sales tracking through U.S. supermarkets and grocery stores, drugstores, and mass merchandisers (including Target, Kmart, and Wal-Mart) with annual sales of $2 million or more; and from the Simmons National Consumer Survey from Experian Marketing Services.

The report provides analysis of leading brands and marketers, key facts about gluten and how it can be avoided, gluten-free trends and opportunities, competition, food service markets, regulations and product development, and marketing trends.

Some of these companies of gluten-free foods need to realize that the "new" grains that they are adding to their ingredients are off-putting to celiacs as is canola oil. So many celiacs can't digest the grains and many are intolerant of canola. The companies sales would probably grow if they did more research.

Your numbers should not be going up at all. You are getting gluten somewhere. Do you eat out? Have you read the Newbie 101 at the top of the coping section? That will help you to ferret out how you may be getting glutened. Do you have a gluten free household or is it a shared house...

I?m 62 and have just now been tested for Celiac. My Titer was negative, I have zero IGa and too much IGg (16) which is an indicator of intolerance at the very least and may indicate the need for another endoscopy. He also tested for EPI (exocrine pancreatic insufficiency) which was negative. ...

Wow, I also had pyloric stenosis that was misdiagnosed for some weeks as an infant (and almost died from it). I also have Raynauld?s and I started following celiac diet, finding an immediate improvement of my symptoms. I thought I was the only one that had all 3 of these diagnoses. Interesting.
