Draper, UT -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/09/2013 -- Cacao is a plant-based food that contains carbohydrates, fats, proteins, natural minerals and some vitamins. The allure of chocolate and the love affair that people have with it makes chocolate a universal gift for birthdays, special celebrations and holidays. Even in turbulent economic times, the high-end chocolate market is a major profitable segment of the $17-billion-a-year U.S. candy industry. Americans consume about 1.5 million metric tons of chocolate confectionery products each year, and they spend nearly $10 billion to do so.

Gluten Free Population (Xocai Healthy Chocolates) - The global gluten-free product market is projected to reach a value of $6,206.2 million, growing at a growth rate of 10.2% by 2018. Gluten-free bakery and confectionery products accounted for the largest volume share of about 46%, followed by gluten-free snacks that contributed about 20% in the gluten-free product market. North America contributed to about 59% share in the global gluten-free product market. The demand for new products and a variety of gluten-free products is increasing in the market. The existing companies are actively introducing new products with different ingredients and flavors, thereby understanding the needs of their consumers. Each year, it seems like more manufacturers identify candy as gluten-free, widening the choices for candy-loving kids and parents alike.
It’s estimated that 3 million people in the United States – or one in 133 people – suffer from celiac disease, but many are unaware. While gastrointestinal problems are symptoms that often accompany the condition, many celiacs and people with non-celiac gluten sensitivity may have good digestion but experience growth, skin, skeletal, reproductive, neurological, psychological or other disorders. Scoping the Competition - Higher End "no gluten ingredient" Chocolates Pure, unsweetened chocolate, made by liquefying roasted cacao beans and containing nothing but those roasted beans, should be completely gluten-free. But pure, unsweetened chocolate also doesn't taste very good. It's the combination of chocolate and cocoa butter (like pure chocolate, a product of the cacao beans), sugar, milk (in some cases) and other ingredients that make "chocolate" such a taste sensation. And those other ingredients are where any gluten-related problems are introduced. (Source)
