Allergen-Free Food Market size was at USD x.xx million in 2019 and is anticipated to reach over USD x.xx million, recording a CAGR of x.xx% throughout the outlook period 2022 - 2027.
Allergen-free food includes anti-diabetic foods, gluten-free, lactose-free, and others. Many people are allergic to gluten, lactose or are unable to consume high-calorie products due to diabetes, which has led food manufacturers to produce allergen-free food. Additionally, many consumers now prefer allergen-free foods and beverages in the belief that they will aid their digestive health, weight management, and general well-being.
Allergen-Free Food Market Drivers and Restraints:
Better access to information has made consumers very skeptical about the ingredients found in their food. A growing number of them are moving away from products with synthetic ingredients to those with organic ingredients. Globally, demand for personalized meat substitutes and dairy products has exploded, as has health spending per capita. With increased awareness, consumers realize the importance of allergen-free foods in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Additionally, government initiatives to encourage the use of natural ingredients have created an environment conducive to the growth of the global allergen-free food market. To capitalize on prevailing trends, some of the largest companies are targeting strategic collaborations. For example; In July 2017, Cargill Incorporated and Delacon entered into a strategic partnership to strengthen their presence in the Allergen-Free Food Market for artificial foods. With the increasing incidence of foodborne illness, modern consumers are more comfortable re-evaluating their food choices. Beet powder is an instant hit with some consumer sectors.
The clean label refers to food products with natural, familiar, and simple ingredients that are easy to recognize, understand and pronounce, without artificial ingredients or synthetic chemicals. Consumers' preference for foods with fewer ingredients has forced food manufacturers to exclude artificial ingredients and chemical modifiers from their food production. The main certification and labeling authorities around the world have required companies to provide correct labeling on their food packaging. Incorrect packaging or labeling is one of the main causes of product recalls. As a result, some of the leading companies are developing a range of plant-based and organic foods, without compromising functionality. National food safety authorities and the Secretariat of the International Food Safety Authorities Network (INFOSAN) are seeking more information on the potential role of food in transmitting the virus through local and international trade. Meanwhile, the World Health Organization has recommended certain standards to maintain hygiene and food safety practices to prevent the transmission of COVID-19 through food. These trends will drive the demand for clean and ultimately allergen-free food in the coming years.
Allergen-Free Food Market Segmentation:
According to the type, the global allergen-free food market is segmented into gluten-free, lactose-free, diabetic, and other foods. Among all of them, the lactose-free segment dominates the market followed by the gluten-free segment. The increase in diabetes cases among the population is driving the growth of the market for diabetic food during the forecast period.
Based on packaging material, the global allergen-free food market is divided into glass, plastic, metal, paper, and others. Among them, the paper and plastic segments are considered the fastest growing.
Based on the distribution channel, the allergen-free food market is bifurcated into store-based and non-store-based. Among them, the store-based distribution channel dominates the worldwide market. The availability of a wide range followed by the convenience of finding all products under one roof is the driving force behind the growth of this segment.

The coronavirus pandemic had its immense impact on the food and beverage industry, with the shutdown of manufacturing units and the temporary closure of hotels, restaurants, and cafes. Due to this, all the associated industries in the F&B sector, such as allergen-free foods have registered declined sales and revenue. However, this slump is temporary as people become more aware of foods they consume in order to avoid lifestyle diseases like obesity, celiac, diabetes, etc., which is likely to act positively for the allergen-free foods market in the coming years.
The global Allergen-Free Food market has been divided by geography into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa. While Europe and North America are seen as leading markets for allergen-free foods, East Asia and South Asia are supposed to show higher growth prospects.
Nearly 15 million people in the United States have food allergies, and nearly 6 million of them are children. Almost 17 million people suffer from food allergies in Europe. This, combined with the increasing prevalence of lactose intolerance, is driving demand for allergen-free and non-GMO products in the region. In the last three years, the United States has witnessed a significant increase in the number of people who identify as vegan. This creates many opportunities for the expansion of the allergen-free food market in North America. In Asia-Pacific, the market will mainly benefit from changes in consumer preferences. Meanwhile, Latin America is the fifth most important market for the health food industry worldwide, attracting some of the giants of the Brazilian market. The global market for allergen-free foods is characterized by large capital investment in developed markets.
