Increased awareness of celiac disease and gluten sensitivity has led to significant growth in the gluten-free product market.  Gluten-free food and beverages reached sales of 2.64 billion in 2010, a 30 percent increase since 2006 according to a recent Packaged Facts study, and are projected to grow to $5.6 billion by 2015.  As a prominent ingredient in gluten-free products, rice will continue to benefit from growth of the market.
