Market Analysis

The growth of the industry is being driven by the rising demand from the food industry. The gluten content of wheat flour is very low, thus it widely demanded among consumers who are allergic to it. Gluten causes celiac disease, which is a genetic autoimmune disorder that causes the body to perceive the protein as a harmful substance and lead to body immune damage. This can be an important factor leading to the growth of the demand in wheat flour. In addition, wheat flour is extremely nutritious and abundantly rich in vitamins B and vitamins E, minerals, and catalysts.
