Gluten-free is at least a billion dollar market.

As the food blog Eater notes, there is no shortage of companies trying to help people with celiac disease. And unlike their non-gluten-digesting ancestors, today’s celiacs are hardly being forced to go without carbs these days.

“Gluten-free” versions of nearly everything are now available. In the US, sales of typically wheat-containing gluten-free products went up 34% between 2010 and 2014, and have now reached more than $1 billion, according to the market research group Packaged Facts, which measured sales in salty snacks, crackers, pasta, bread, cold cereal, cookies, baking mixes, frozen bread/dough, and flour.
