Key Market Trends

Growing Demand for Naturally Preserving Foods

Spray drying is the most effective method for powdering milk and other food products. Since it is less expensive in case of operations and initial cost, it is mostly preferred over other powdering techniques such as freeze-drying, vacuum drying, etc. Biologically and thermally sensitive materials such as milk, fruit juices, and essential oils are being dried using this technique. Food is perishable; hence, food preservation is needed to prevent its damage or spoilage under normal environmental conditions. The main aim of food preservation is to prevent or delay the growth of microorganisms, such as bacteria, yeast, and molds.​

Consumers' demand has increased for fresh fruits and vegetables. To handle the market demand, fresh foods, including fruits and vegetables, are preserved using different techniques. This is attributed to the popularity of spray drying technologies.​ High moisture content in food products, like fruits and vegetables, leads to high water activity, which leads to loss of quality due to increased enzyme activity and microbial growth. Therefore, consumers' immense demand for naturally dried foods is increasing globally.

Recent Development

In November 2021, The Food Processing Innovation Center (FPIC) launched Davao’s innovative food product called Bukolyte in Davao City. Spray-dried buko (young coconut) powder, Bukolyte, is made from young coconut water and meat developed using spray-drying technology that converts liquid extracts into powder while preserving some of the essential nutrients.

In March 2018, Swiss food and beverage giant Nestle Inc. developed a new form of porous, “structured” sugar made with spray drying that allows the firm to lower the sugar contents of confectionery products by some 30%. The new sugar dissolves to provide a level of sweetness comparable to a large amount of traditional sugar.
