Food for Everyone

To support Coeliac UK Awareness week and National Vegetarian Week, Take Stock presents some recipes that can be enjoyed by all.

From May 11-17, it’s Coeliac UK’s Awareness Week and according to Mintel, one in 100 people suffer from coeliac disease – an intolerance to gluten. In addition, many more people are choosing to avoid gluten for a variety of reasons and the free from foods market is growing rapidly. Research from Mintel shows that the free-from market has shown impressive growth, having doubled in value since 2009 to £365 million in 2014. It’s forecasted to grow by a further 51% by 2019 to £551 million.
“Catering businesses can benefit from the increased demand for gluten-free – it is estimated that people with coeliac disease and the friends and family they dine with are worth a potential £100 million a year,” said Kathryn Miller, food policy lead for Coeliac UK.
Vegetarian Week runs from 18-24 May and according to Mintel 12% of adults in the UK follow a vegetarian or vegan diet. There’s a growing number of consumers who are also actively cutting down on their consumption of meat, preferring fish or having meat-free days during the week. As a result, the meat-free market in 2014 has been estimated at £657 million.

Take a look at our gluten-free Lemon and Lime Dal recipe and Quick Vegan Kidney Bean Burger recipe.
