Allergen-free food market is a global rapid-growing segment. The largest share of allergen-free food product value sales comes from North America and Europe. Analysts estimated annual growth rate of allergen-free food market in the US. being more than 10% and product sales in the year 2018 being more than US$ 6.2 billion. The fast growing market of allergen-free food is due to not only an increase in numbers of food allergy individuals but also allergen-free food has been considered to be healthy food.

Foods identified as allergens are wheat, milk, egg, peanut, soybean, fish, seafood, sesame and tree nuts. These foods are common ingredients in many food products. To produce allergen-free food products, food manufacturers have to be aware of types of allergens, control plan for processing, cross contamination possibly occurring during processing, detection methods for allergens and regulations including allergen-free labeling.
