Let’s face it, the gluten-free trend of 2014 isn’t going anywhere in 2015. Last year, “Free-From” foods started to appear in the first aisle (you know, the one by the door), #glutenfree trended on Twitter and most importantly, Dunkin’ Donuts finally managed to produce a gluten-free doughnut.
According to The Telegraph, bread and pasta sales suffered a decline in sales throughout 2014 (-8.9% and -4.2% respectively), whilst “Free-From” sales reached £0.5bn for the first time. Despite less than 2% of the population suffering from a food allergy, millions of people are turning to gluten-free diets to lose weight and get healthier.
The trend is big in America too, thanks to the likes of actress Gwyneth Paltrow and socialite Nicole Richie, who both stick to a gluten-free diet. Worth around $2.6 billion, the market has grown by 36% since 2006. According to the Mail, even Girl Scouts are now making gluten-free cookies.
