Price of "free from" foods

Price of "free from" foods to high?

Food Allergies Trigger Multibillion – Dollar Specialty Market Washington Post

After reading and thinking about this article I wondered about the price of allergy friendly food, and services. I understand supply and demand is less for allergy safe food but “free from food” is a growing market, are we paying too much?

I take in point a dairy free chocolate bar cost twice as much as a milk chocolate bar. How much can it really cost to keep chocolate away from milk, Coco plants do not grow on cows.

Peanut free chocolates and granola bars cost the same as nut chocolates and granola bars in Canada. Americans pay a premium to ship nut free products to the States. Info shipping Canadian Nut Free Products.
