The Rise of Food Allergy and Intolerance

Food allergies and sensitivities are on the rise. As many as 15 million Americans have food allergies, including nearly 9 million adults and 6 million children,1 while some estimate up to 20% of people globally are living with some form of food intolerance.2

The Free-From Lifestyle

At the same time, the demand for free-from products is on the rise, as more and more individuals opt to follow a free-from lifestyle, either by choice or necessity. More than 80% of Americans buy free-from foods because they believe them to be more natural. These free-from consumers demand products that contain no GMOs, trans fats, food allergens or preservatives.3

The Prevalence of Ingredient Sensitivities

The United States Department of Agriculture estimates that 34 million Americans have some form of food ingredient sensitivity,4 while an estimated 15% are affected by a chemical ingredient sensitivity that includes those found in everyday products like detergent and perfume.5
