As awareness of celiac disease continues to increase, the demand for gluten-free foods is expected to dramatically rise, according to a new report released by the Canadian Celiac Association and the Allergen Control Group. The “2016 Gluten-Free Stakeholder Update & Planning Session” report contains key findings, observations, and future plans, as discussed by stakeholders from across the food value chain. Though 1% of Americans are thought to have celiac disease, nearly 83% go undiagnosed. It is expected methods of accurate diagnosis will increase and, combined with increasing awareness spurred by marketing and activist consumer groups, will create new avenues of growth in the market.
