WE'RE IN A GLUTEN-FREE BUBBLE THAT IS ABOUT TO BURST

Sales of products with a gluten-free label have doubled in the past four years, but for most people, gluten-free foods aren’t healthier. A leading economist explains why this bubble is ready to pop.

Gluten-free. It’s among the hottest trends in food today. It competes with “non-GMO,” “local” and “organic” for mindshare among today’s health-conscious, price-insensitive, and trend-following foodies, yuppies, and self-anointed amateur nutritionists.

Gluten-free is clearly on the minds of many.
