Food Additives: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (Vocus) June 7, 2010
Food additives are substances that are added to food at low concentrations to help improve taste, extend shelf life, and prevent growth of microbes. They help maintain quality, texture, consistency, taste, odor, alkalinity/acidity, or serve any technological function related to food, such as acting as a processing aid. The factors playing a prominent role in growth of the food additives market include adoption of sophisticated food processing methods by developing countries, restructuring of food processing companies, and a demand for more complicated food ingredients by processors.
The United States and Europe dominate the world food additives market as stated by the new market research report on Food Additives market. Americans are particularly conscious of the calorie content, and hence low-calorie, low-fat foods are popular in the US. This indicates a growing demand for food additives such as fat replacers, artificial sweeteners, and hydrocolloids. Nevertheless, the US market remains the largest for flavors/flavor enhancers.
Key factors influencing growth of food additives in Europe include growing health conscious among Europeans, food safety concerns, and increasing preference for convenience foods. The raising obesity levels and desire for natural food products are factors driving demand for natural additives and fat replacers. The European market remains the largest for flavors/flavor enhancers.
