Key Market Trends

High Demand For Food Emulsifiers in Bakery and Confectionery Segments

Bakery products, such as bread, make up a major part of the European diet, and thus, the increasing demand for dough strengthening and softening emulsifiers are propelling the usage of bakery emulsifiers, such as lecithin in Italy. Fats in bakery ingredients help to retain gases released during baking, thus, ensuring richness, flavor, and moisture in the bakery products. Emulsifiers act as an intermediary between oil and water, thus, preventing the separation of oil from water. Emulsifiers are also used for conditioning the dough and increasing the shelf life of bakery products.

Moreover, the segment witnesses demand from the confectionery, dairy, and meat products markets. Observing the excellent performance of this industry, manufacturers are focusing on developing the benchmark product in the range of food emulsifiers for increasing productivity and their respective shelf life bakery as well as meat products across the country.
