With one in 100 people worldwide living with celiac disease, and many more undiagnosed, the gluten-free market is a rapidly growing segment. Celiacs cannot enjoy the same wheat-based foods that others do, and one of the most common complaints about gluten-free foods is that these products lack the taste and texture that consumers enjoy. They are constantly searching for products that taste better.
Expandex® modified tapioca starch helps give them what they have been missing. Used in your formulations, the unique characteristics of Expandex® take the texture and appearance of your product to the next level. Plus it may even help you broaden your formulation offerings.
Between 2006 and 2010, the U.S. gluten-free food and beverage market saw 30% compound annual growth rate. The market reached an estimated $2.6 billion in retail sales last year, according to Packaged Facts' report, Gluten-Free Foods and Beverages in the U.S., 3rd edition.
