The Gluten-Free Doughnut Is A National And Local Bakery Trend

July 20, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
The gluten-free trend is spreading into the retail doughnut sector, touching both large chains and local operators. Dunkin' Donuts, noting that it  recognizes that “sensitivities to food ingredients such as gluten are a serious concern,” said it will introduce a gluten-free cinnamon sugar doughnut and a gluten-free blueberry muffin by the end of the year. An example at the local level: Memphis, Tenn.-based Glaze Gourmet Donuts said it will offer gluten-free doughnuts among its other specialties at weddings, parties and office gatherings. The market for gluten-free foods hit $4.2 billion in 2012 and is expected to exceed $6.6 billion by 2017 (Packaged Facts).
