Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Gluten-free Food Market in the US 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Gluten-free Food Market in the US: B&G Foods, Bob's Red Mill, Boulder Brands, Chobani, Dr Schär, Flower Foods, General Mills, Gruma SA, Hero, and Popcorn Indiana.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Aleia’s Gluten-free Foods, Amy's Kitchen, Blue Diamond Growers, Bob's Red Mill Natural Foods, Doves Farm, Enjoy Life Foods, Kellogg, Kraft Heinz Company, Nestlé, and PepsiCo.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “With the market for gluten-free packaged foods growing at a steady rate, the growing presence of private labels in the market is giving tough competition to large players. Retailers have embraced the growing trend of gluten-free food products by stocking more of these items, highlighting them in their stores, and launching their own private label brands.”

According to the report, one of the major driving factors of the gluten-free food market in the US is celiac disease and other gluten allergies. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder, whereby the small intestine is unable to process the gluten present in certain foods such as wheat, barley, and rye. It affects the lining of the small intestine and disrupts the absorption of nutrients. The continued consumption of foods with gluten may increase the risk of contracting other more serious health disorders such as multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, and certain cancers.

Further, the report states that the threat of contamination of ingredients and raw materials is a major challenge faced by the vendors in the gluten-free food market in the US.
