I know all about Gluten Free Products as I had been diagnosed with a lot of food sensitivities and allergies. I believe anyone could do quite well on-line for these products. I am fortunate enough to live in Chicago, and I can hit any Wholefoods, or other stores, but I believe that there are many small towns in lots of States, that do not have access to Gluten Free, or other foods that they may be allergice to, to find alternative measures. For example, I am allergic to dairy. For me, at the time, I thought I was going to go into Dairy Fits. I LOVE CHEESE!! Milk too. I now buy RIce Milk unsweetned, and can't live without it. If I eat cheese, it might be on a pizza, but it is Organic!! Does not bother as much without all the horrible additives. Yes I belive there is a market out there. People are getting sicker and sicker everyday, not only by the Gluten, but also the chemicals. It has already been reported that all these antibiotics they are putting in our food, we are ingesting, and we are becoming resistant when we need antibiotics. Scary Factor. Go For It! I believe they will do well. If anyone has any questions regarding anything, please feel free to write to me or post! I do know that you must be completely gluten free for six months, for you to be gluten free. Hope I have helped. Patricia Reply
Is gluten the same as sugar? Reply

No, gluten is a protein found in some grains. It clumps together and forms strands when you work it, which is why a good piece of crusty bread needs to be kneaded. It's gluten that gives you that texture. It's the same reason why if you overbeat a cake batter, it'll turn out dry and tough. Reply

Hello everyone :) @Patricia Thanks for your support! Yes there is a growing market as there seems to be more people getting more prone to food allergies plus the ever growing health conscious group as well. @Dave Gilbert No, Gluten is not the same as sugar. [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gluten/]Gluten[/url] is a form of protein found in wheat, barley and rye. Gluten gives elasticity to dough, helping it rise and keep its shape and often gives the final product a chewy texture. Gluten may also be found in some cosmetics, hair products, and other dermatological preparations. Cheers! Reply

I hear that a lot too that we are becoming more health conscious. But why in the world does Google trends show a downward slope when I write the word "health". Reply

Noah, my guess is that the term is just too broad. It's very vague. But if you look at trends for "gluten free," "paleo diet" and "lose weight" there's serious upticks in activity. I would try looking at more specific terms if you want to see what's going on in the health industry, so to speak. Reply
