Key Market Trends

Increased demand of convenience foods

Rising demand for prepared and convenience food products such as baked goods, snacks, yogurt, ice-cream, beverages and other ready meals among the consumers have been witnessed with an increasing trend. This is due to the benefits of convenience food such as lesser preparation time and easy handling that offers an advantage to the consumers in their busy life schedule. Food stabilizers make up a very small part of the final product, but they have a significant impact on the final packaged product. For instance, products, ranging from fat-free dressing, low-fat mayonnaise, sauces, processed meat products, etc., require a broad variety of functional ingredients to provide optimization in terms of stability, creaminess, shelf-life, viscosity, and water absorption, among others.
