With the rise in health consciousness, more consumers are adopting gluten-free diets due to perceived health benefits. Consuming gluten can cause digestive troubles and other health complications in people with celiac disease, gluten intolerance, or sensitivity. Therefore, they seek alternative ingredients like toasted flour, which is naturally gluten-free and safe for consumption. As the popularity of gluten-free baking grows, so does the demand for toasted flour as a premium ingredient. In conclusion, increased demand for gluten-free products drives the market's growth.

Additionally, The COVID-19 pandemic and related lockdowns have led to more people spending time at home. Many individuals have turned to home-based activities, including baking, with limited outdoor and dining options.

Toasted flour, with its unique flavor profile and versatility, provides an exciting ingredient for home bakers to incorporate into their creations, adding depth and complexity to their baked goods. Thus, the rising home baking trend is propelling the market's growth.

Handling raw materials, managing manufacturing workflows, and operating and maintaining equipment requires skilled workers. Labor-intensive processes increase operational costs and labor overheads. Therefore, high production costs are hindering the growth of the market.
