Gluten-Free Trend: Evolving, Improving, and Still Growing

Almond flour is finding increasing applications in gluten-free baked goods and breads, amid the rise of gluten intolerance among a growing number of consumers. In recent times, manufactures are focusing on using almond flour and other health-benefiting ingredients in development of various gluten-free products that focus on convenience, such as grab-and-go snacks and bars. For instance, in September 2019, Simple Mills expanded its product portfolio with the launch of Simple Mill Soft-Baked Almond Flour Bars. Moreover, as consumers are keen on boosting nutrition content in their daily diets, demand for almond flour is expected to grow strong going forward.

Blanched Almond Flour to Capture 56% Market Share

By the end of 2029, blanched almond flour will account for more than half of the total sales, as per the FMI study. Blanched almond flour is witnessing high demand from the bakery sector, due to its fluffiness, smooth, and fine texture. This type of almond flour is preferred over natural or unblanched flour, as it is lighter and much better for creating pastries as compared to their natural counterparts. These properties are further prompting manufacturers to launch innovative offerings in this category.
