Until recently, celiac disease was considered to be a rare disorder; however, today it is believed that three million Americans, a little less than 1% percent of the population, may have celiac disease. Celiacs are intolerant to gluten, the protein found in all forms of wheat (including durum, semolina, and spelt), rye, oats, barley, and related grain hybrids such as triticale and kamut. Often when food scientists think of avoiding gluten in a product formulation, they think wheat flour only. However, there are many hidden sources of gluten in the food ingredients business, and even the slightest amount in a food product can cause the celiac many discomforts. Currently it is estimated that 97% of celiacs remain undiagnosed and go untreated. It is also estimated that the number of known sufferers of celiac disease will increase worldwide by a factor of 10 during the next few years. Some consumers who have tested negative for celiac disease still avoid gluten because of other real or perceived reactions to gluten in the diet.
Also, some consumers with various neuropathies have experienced an improved condition while on a gluten-free diet. At the same time, a new group of consumers seems to be migrating to the gluten-free market from organic and natural foods and other segments. These trends suggest an opportunity exists for greater development and marketing of gluten-free foods.
