Moreover, the gradual increase in the demand for food manufacturers to preserve food products is fuelling the demand for dehydrated foods, as well, during the forecast period. Contamination of ingredients & raw material and harmful effects of preservatives are the major threats to the market. Consumers are opting gluten-free diets, owing to several health concerns, further prompting them to adopt other healthier options like regular dried food products, etc.; thus, pushing several other manufacturers to add gluten-free dried food offerings to their products portfolio.
