The retail market for gluten-free foods and beverages is exploding as a result of multiple triggers. On the marketer side, giant General Mills has converted its venerable Rice Chex Brand to gluten-free status, thus beginning what promises to be a battle of giants as other mega-marketers look to enter the fray. The first giant marketer to create a gluten-free product was Anheuser-Busch, which debuted a gluten-free beer, Redbridge in 2006. Also that year the international spice giant McCormick and Co. acquired Simply Asia Foods. Undeterred, numerous specialty marketers have sprung up, using web 2.0 networking to sell directly in what has long been a consumer driven market.

On the consumer side, demand has been growing exponentially as sufferers of a wide variety of maladies (including celiac disease, autism, attention deficit disorder, irritated bowel syndrome, and MS) have come to believe a gluten-free diet will provide relief. The consumer core of celiac disease, and gluten allergy, sufferers is also growing steadily as diagnosis and treatment of these conditions has improved and increased.

Retailers are holding up their side too. Supermarkets’ gluten-free marketing ranges from gluten-free product lists on their websites, to gluten-free private-label reformulations, to new gluten-free store sections. Even the Federal Government is lending a hand as it finalizes regulatory criteria for gluten-free labeling. This new regulatory clarity should prove a boon to marketers currently struggling through a hodge-podge of self-help organizations for certification. Even the current economic slowdown cannot be seen as a negative factor for the overall gluten-free foods and beverages market, as hard-pressed consumers are motivated to try dietary self-help when mainstream medical assistance grows out of reach.

Packaged Facts projects that this segment of the U.S. retail marketplace enjoyed a 28% CAGR to reach $1.56 billion by the end of 2008. Packaged Facts goes on to project that the segment will continue to grow, though not at the same torrid pace, through 2012.
