Cider is becoming increasingly popular as a summer beverage because it is gluten-free and frequently sweeter and more refreshing than beer. Several cider producers say that the majority of their products are naturally gluten-free as cider is made from apples that does not contain gluten. The demand for gluten-free products increases as more people develop gluten sensitivity, which is linked to celiac disease, and with the rise in awareness for the need of consuming high-quality food and beverages. Gluten-free beverages also help with cholesterol levels and digestive health. As a result, customers are attracted toward natural, nutrient-rich beverages that provide various health benefits. Thus, the rise in demand for gluten-free alcoholic beverages is expected to drive the growth of the market during the cider market forecast.
