Key Market Trends

Increase In Preference for Fiber Fortification and Supplementation

Research states that more than half of the consumers worldwide are now trying to increase the fiber intake in their food. This has prompted manufacturers to fortify higher-value products, like crisps, puffs, and flakes, along with dietary fibers. Key players are increasingly preferring fibers from various sources, such as chicory root, asparagus, carrots, Jerusalem artichoke, jicama, leeks, and whole grains, to develop fortified food products with high-fiber content and fiber-based supplements categorized under the functional food industry. Owing to this, functional-food manufacturers, like General Mills and Quaker Oats, are primarily including prebiotic ingredients in their product portfolios. The companies, such as BENEO GmbH, have embarked on utilizing chicory root in their new formulations for 2018. Fibers, like chicory roots, are now used in beverages, like tea and coffee to shelf-stable snacks and wellness bars.

Europe Remains Prominent in the Market

The increasing awareness regarding the consumption of food fibers and the health benefits of the fibers are the main factors supporting the growth of the market in the region. This has led to an increasing transition from consuming traditional foods to high fiber foods. The European food fibers market is also driven by increased demand for dietary supplements and functional food and beverage products. The UK Food Standards Agency (FSA) has adopted an AOAC international method to authorize the labeling of inulin as a fiber. This recent development allows manufacturers to label inulin and oligofructose as dietary fibers in the United Kingdom. Manufacturers now claim the following benefits on the ingredient label - enriched with fiber, fibers added, rich in fiber. The current dietary habits in Europe have shifted from traditional food to average Western diets, with too little wholegrain cereals, legumes, fruits, and vegetables.
