Gluten –Free: The Facts Behind The Trend

Gluten –Free: The Facts Behind The Trend
By Katherine Sabal

Whether you like it or not, the two word term ‘gluten-free’ has been coming up a lot more often, not only in the grocery aisles but also in the media. People all across the nation have noticed, in some capacity, this growing food trend. As people become more aware of the benefits of cutting down on or expelling gluten from their diets, demand for gluten-free products has grown greatly over the past few years.

Gluten Free Lava Cakes
According to a survey conducted by the NPD Group, a consumer research firm, thirty percent of adults are interested in cutting down or avoiding gluten altogether in their diets.  This growing interest has contributed to the growing gluten-free food market which today stands as a $4.2 billion industry. The gluten-free interest has grown so much that even the restaurant industry can’t ignore it.  The interest is most definitely there and growing, with 200 million restaurant visits in the past year including a gluten-free order.

Taking in all of these numbers, the question might still remain: What is a gluten-free product? Simply put, a gluten-free product is a product that does not contain gluten, a protein composite found in grains such as wheat, spelt, barley and rye. Gluten is what gives dough its elasticity, helping it to rise and keep its shape resulting in a final bakery product with a chewy texture.

Gluten Free Cookies
So, why are there an increasing number of people trying to avoid gluten in their diets?  One reason is that 3 million Americans have been diagnosed with celiac disease, making the disease four times more common than it was 50 years ago. People who suffer from this disease cannot consume any gluten as it can cause intestinal damage. Another reason is that a growing number of people are finding that they are sensitive to gluten and suffer slight allergic reactions if they consume food with gluten in it. One other reason is that there is a growing number of consumers that are interested in embarking on a course towards a "healthier lifestyle" overall and they believe the eradication of gluten from their diet is a good step in that direction.

But even with this increased talk of the gluten-free food trend, it can be very hard to find good tasting gluten-free product that makes consumers not miss the “real” thing. Knowing this, Davidovich Bakery  refused to release it's gluten free line until it was confident they were offering the best gluten-free products that are on the market. Davidovich Bakery makes available to customers an assortment of gluten-free products such as breads (baguettes, raisin bread, hot dog and hamburger rolls), muffins (chocolate chip and banana chocolate chip), chocolate chip cookies, brownies, coco lava cakes, chocolate and vanilla cupcakes and even pizza crusts and a vegan birthday cake. Davidovich Bakery offers gluten-free products for every occasion. And don’t worry; a gluten-free bagel is in the works! Davidovich Bakery is hard at work developing the best gluten-free bagel - a product usually very high in gluten - it can offer to consumers.

The world famous Davidovich Bakery will be proudly sponsoring the NY Fencing Academy's Senior Mixed Epee Cup competition to be held on Sunday June 9, 2013 at the NY Fencing Academy headquarters located at 2896 W. 12th Street, Brooklyn, NY 11224.  This exciting USA Fencing (USFA) sanctioned event will take place at noon in the NY Fencing Academy's, newly renovated, state of the art facilities located in the historic Coney Island section of Brooklyn.   

For those unfamiliar with the art of fencing, Epee is one of three modern sport fencing weapons utilized by fencing competitors around the world.  Epee matches are noted for their intense drama as competitors employ speed, concentration, and accuracy as they duel for points where their opponent's entire body is a viable target for scoring.  Even those unfamiliar with the technical rules of the sport will appreciate the intensity, excitement, and sportsmanship of this event.

Davidovich Bakery has a long history of supporting exciting New York City sports events, including the NYC 5 Boro Bike Tour and the NYS Taekwondo Championships.  The addition of sponsoring a fencing event is of particular excitement, as the company's owners have a long history of involvement with this international sport.
