Limited options at mealtime often present a challenge for those with celiac disease or gluten intolerance. Beyond Celiac indicates celiac disease is a genetic autoimmune disease triggered by the consumption of gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley and rye, and can cause serious health complications. Currently, the only treatment for the disease is to follow a 100 percent gluten-free diet. Learn more about gluten allergies here. The good news is that new gluten-free products are consistently hitting grocery store shelves and online retailers. A report by Zion Market Research reveals that the gluten-free product market is expected to reach $7.6 billion in the U.S. by 2024, which will likely lead to even more gluten-free ready-to-eat and snack products. Sorghum is a naturally gluten-free whole grain that manufacturers are looking to as an ingredient in their celiac safe flour-based products. Sorghum flour provides nutritional benefits as well as a texture and consistency similar to that of traditional flour-based goods.
