Food Enzymes Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Food Enzymes Market according to our research experts:

Increase of Food Enzyme Usage in Bakery and beverage industries

Bakery products consist of several products like bread, pastries, doughnuts, and rolls. Food enzymes act as a catalyst for biochemical reactions that offer quality improvements in bakery products. The bakery is the largest application market for food enzymes. Bakery products are prominent in North America and Western Europe. Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing region for bakery foods, with Australia, India, and China being the main drivers. In Australia, there is an increase in demand for Food enzymes in bakery applications due to restrictions on the use of chemical additives, especially in the manufacture of bread and other fermented products.

The beverage segment comprises food enzyme application in alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, with carbohydrase and lipase as the major categories of enzymes. Additionally, in the segment, enzymes provide three major functions- formation of sugar that is used during fermentation, viscosity control, and chill-proofing for beer. In the brewing industry, the major enzymes used include cellulose, alpha-amylase, and beta-glucanase for the liquefaction, clarification, and supplementing of malt enzymes. Some of the key benefits of brewing enzymes include better malt separation, extraction yield, and beer filtration and stabilization.
