Key Market Trends

Rising Popularity for Clean Label Ingredients

Their interest in identifying the ingredients present in the food and beverage products has triggered the growth of the clean-label ingredient market. Consumers are highly concerned about the long-term effects of the ingredients they are consuming, in terms of nutrition content and their impact on health, environmental sustainability, sourcing, and social responsibility.

Increased Utilization in Beverages

The use of preservatives in the beverage industry is to avoid the change in taste, the color of the drinks, and bitter aftertaste.​ As soft drinks are high in water activity and some of them are rich in vitamins and minerals, they are an attractive environment for microbes.​ The usually low pH of the soft drinks, carbonation, sugar content in some of them, and the addition of preservatives, help to inhibit the growth of microbes and bacteria.​ The type of chemical preservatives that can be used in beverages depends on the chemical and physical properties of both the antimicrobial preservatives and the beverage type.
