Key Market Trends

Increased Demand for Gelatin

Gelatin is an important hydrocolloid in the food industry and is widely used as food additives in healthy food due to its high content of protein and amino acid. The hydrocolloidal nature of gelatin has numerous applications in confectionery products (for imparting chewiness, texture, and foam stabilization), jelly deserts (for creaminess, fat reduction, and mouth feel), dairy products (for stabilization and texturization) and meat products (for water-binding). It has a unique amino acid arrangement in its sequence and contains relatively high amount of glycine, proline, and alsnine. The presence of biologically active peptide sequences in its primary structure results in gelatin’s bioactivities.

Confectionery is the Fastest Growing Agents

Confectionery provides one of the most important markets for a range of hydrocolloids owing to the functionality requirements which range from a simple gel or coating to the most complex of properties with many factors from production to final balanced consumption. Hydrocolloids may provide the shiny finish on a pastry or tart, the glue for keeping a coating on the surface of a candy, or the ‘melt in the mouth’ texture which consumers value. In a more complex way, hydrocolloids play a critical role in the flavour release profile along with the sweetness impact.
