Sales for gluten free foods have grown into a $9 billion dollar market and those numbers are expected to increase by as much as 60% in the next couple of years.
According to a US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulation issued in 2013, food manufacturers may label their products as “gluten-free”, “no gluten” and “without gluten” if their product has less than 20 parts per million (ppm) gluten.
