Key Market Trends

Health Issues Associated with the Use of Artificial Food Additives

Consumers are becoming more aware of the adverse health effects associated with the consumption of various synthetic or artificial food ingredients, such as colorants, flavors, texturizers, fat replacers, and sweeteners, owing to various research projects and bans introduced by governments. Consumption of such ingredients can lead to hyperkinesia, tumors, skin rashes, kidney damage, migraine, sleep disturbance, asthma, and ill-gut health. These health issues have led to a consumer shift toward natural additives. Government authorities, such as the WHO, FDA, EFSA, and FSSAI, have recognized the hazardous effects of these ingredients and have laid down guidelines for the use of such ingredients in food products that food & beverage manufacturers have to comply. Moreover, the use of clean-label ingredients also assists manufacturers in their marketing and branding strategies. Thus, the demand for clean-label ingredients is expected to increase at a significant rate during the forecast period.
