Bakery Drives the Emulsifier Market

The European market is at its peak since its consumption of bread and baked products is comparatively high, as compared to any other region across the globe. The bakery market in the United Kingdom is more open toward innovation and has been responding positively to consumer demand over the past few years. Consumers seeking out healthier alternatives are aligning manufacturers to improvise added benefits with every product, which also facilitates the new launches under the “free-from” banner. The rising consumer interest in devouring gluten-free products across the region on account of the prevailing diet problems is likely to address the shift of emulsifiers towards gluten-free bakery rather than a bakery in general. ​
