UK Food Enzymes Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the UK Food Enzymes Market according to our research experts:

Increase of Food Enzyme Usage in Bakery Applications

The UK Bakery market is worth billions of the dollar and is a large sector of the United Kingdom food industry (as per the data provided by The Federation of Bakers). Total volume at present is approximately just under 4 billion units; the equivalent of almost 11 million loaves and packs sold every single day. Since enzymes are natural proteins that act as catalysts for biochemical reactions, providing a wide range of quality improvements in baked goods, therefore the enzymes market in the United Kingdom is expected to grow during the forecast period, as the bakery has always been a prominent sector in the country and will continue to do so during the forecast period.

Increasing Application of Speciality Ingredients

Companies such as Koninklijke DSM N.V., DuPont are aiding bakers and food manufactures by providing those enzymes that produce bread with supreme resilience, delayed staling, more softness during shelf life and proven sensory benefits (e.g. even after 7 days, bread has a softer crumb and is more moisty). By extending the shelf life of bread, multiple benefit enzymes also support industry players in actively reducing food waste. Moreover, these enzymes solution particularly increases the foldability in baked products like tortilla wraps, preventing cracking at folding points. This enables producers to achieve a stronger product appeal for consumers and improve process efficiency for manufacturers.

For instance, by simply adding natural processing aids like BakeZyme® (by Koninklijke DSM N.V.) to the baking mix, manufactures can achieve more gluten-free as well as tolerant, stable, elastic and less sticky dough which is easier and faster to handle.
