comparison-of-growth-of-gluten-imports-in-major-countries-and-the-world

 

I chose to create a bar graph illustrating the percentage of growth of gluten imports in various major countries with the inclusion of the statistics based on the world data. The colors show a sharp contrast between the growth from 2010 through 2014 in comparison from 2013 through 2014. The difference shows how the growth rates are rising exponentially in these developed countries, especially from year to year, which in return means that the usage of gluten in foods is increasing as well. The graph will be useful for my paper to demonstrate how widely used gluten is in daily foods. This also proves to be an issue within the Celiac disease and non-Celiac disease gluten intolerant communities because of the dangers of the inclusion of gluten in a wider range of foods as a substitute or an unnecessary addition to thicken certain foods. This aspect is extremely important for my argument so that grocery stores, restaurants, and the general public will be able to correctly label and identify if gluten was included in order to avoid the consumption of the substance by the people who are negatively affected by it.
