Increasing Demand for Food Acidulants in the Confectionery Market

Confectionery remains one of the most popular product categories in South Africa. According to the significant chocolate and confectionery manufacturers, the demand for sugar confectioneries across the South African region is growing at the fastest pace. This growth has intensified the demand for food acidulants in the confectionery segment. Food acidulants, including malic acid, fumaric acid, lactic acid, and citric acid, are primarily used in the confectionery industry. For instance, acidulants, such as lactic acids and lactates, have distinct roles in producing candies. It not only helps in countering the sweet taste of sugar and sugar replacers but also enhances the impact of flavors on the taste. The benefits of food acidulants and its increasing awareness among end-user industries resulted in the acidulants having a prime role in the confectionery market of the region.
