Grain-free flour power
The bakery industry in the UK expects a significant growth of grain-free flours and bakery products in the future. Driven by health, natural and less processed ingredients, such as coconut, lupin and cricket flour are on the rise.
Could grain-free be the future of bakeries?
Currently, grain-free bakery products represent a niche market, but the hype around gluten free, high protein and paleo, grain-free products appeal to consumers as being a new health alternative. According to Mintel, there has been a 134% increase in the global launch of non-grain flour based bakery products between 2010 and 2015.
