Tropical Foods offers gluten-free snacks for the new year

December 20, 2013

One of the challenges of a gluten-free diet is having access to a healthy, delicious snack when you need one. Luckily, Tropical Foods has a variety of retail items to choose from for the gluten-free lifestyle.

Snacks include:

  • Flavored chips, tater pops, and baked lentil chips from Salveo
  • Think Thin bars
  • Tapaz 2 Go hummus and crackers
  • Clif Kid fruit bars
  • Food Should Taste Good flavored crackers
  • Kind bars

“Gluten causes some people serious health problems. Tropical is proud to carry gluten free products to help these people enjoy their favorite snacks without the gluten health hazards,” said Chad Hartman, Director of Marketing for Tropical Foods.

Gluten intolerance is becoming more common as more people are developing sensitivities to gluten. Celiac disease is one of the most common chronic health disorders and also one of the most under-diagnosed. It affects at least 3 million Americans or about one in every 133 Americans, although only 40,000 to 60,000 have been diagnosed. 6-7% of the population are also thought to have non-celiac gluten sensitivity.

The gluten free food industry has boomed, with 17% growth in the last year. The gluten-free market is over $4 billion in the US, with expectations to go beyond $6 billion by 2017.
