Key Market Trends

Expanding Immunity Ingredient Space

The immune health segment is witnessing an inflow of numerous novel and functional ingredients targeted toward specific health needs. From classical ingredients, such as vitamins and botanicals, the market is now shifting toward the use of ocean’s seaweed and yeasts’ beta-glucans to continue to diversify and expand the market.​

In line with this, beta-glucan, which is characterized as the most popular emerging ingredient in the immune health segment, is witnessing a huge demand from consumers globally. Yeast beta-glucan is derived from baker’s yeast and is found to maintain or stimulate the effectiveness of the immune system. Moreover, yeast beta-glucan has positive effects on cholesterol levels. Research is being carried out to investigate its positive impact on blood sugar levels as well. Yeast beta-glucan is a multi-purpose ingredient capable of fortifying and supporting the immune system. For example, beta-glucan derived from the yeast can be used in nutritional and dietary products, dry-mix products, and in a range of other products, such as granola bars, cookies, beverages, and desserts. ​
