Key Insights: Natural Cheese Market
Health Conscious Consumers Driving the Natural Cheese Market
Popularity of emulsifiers and preservatives-free cheese is continually picking pace considering the increasing inclination towards healthy eating and moving away from cheese made using milk protein concentrates (MPCs). Consumers opting for traditional cheese, laden with grass-fed cows’ milk that is high in A2 beta casein and considerably low on low in A1 beta casein is projected to drive the natural cheese market, globally.
However, restricted availability of natural cheese especially in grocery stores would restrain the adoption to some extent. Farmer’s market, local artisan cheese shops, and ‘deli’ section are more likely to sell traditional, natural cheese.
Scrutiny Pushing Manufacturers to Produce Lower-Sodium Natural Cheese
High sodium levels in cheese, being increasingly linked to rising incidences of hypertension, stroke, and kidney diseases has called for ‘less sodium’ movement, globally.
Moreover, since sodium is an essential ingredient used in the final steps on the cheese-making process, manufacturers have been increasingly producing natural cheese with less sodium and fat content, making products with high nutritional value available to consumers.
As per the U.S FDA guidelines, ‘reduced sodium’ label claims can be only made with products having at least 25 percent reduction in sodium levels. However, lowering sodium content in cheese would mean ensuring safety and quality of the products, further pushing for renewed production methods, new safety models, and robust testing.
Shifting Consumer Preferences Driving Packaging Innovation in Natural Cheese Market
Increasing demand for specialty and ready-to-eat products within the natural cheese market has pushed for new product development and packaging innovations. Manufacturers are increasingly focusing on meeting the nutritional and labeling guidelines to help consumers evaluate the nutritional content.
Moreover, growing penetration for convenient and portion-control foods have been a significant driver in novel packaging innovations and designs including press-to-close openings, sliders, reclosable zippers, and straight-tear scoring –to ensure easy-access and long-lasting freshness.
Growing ‘Veganism’ Likely to Impact Global Consumption of Natural Cheese
Increasing demand for ‘all-things non-dairy’ is anticipated to impact the sales of natural cheese in the next few years. Moreover, changing dietary patterns considering the growing number of lactose intolerance cases will further restrict the natural cheese market, globally.
Cheese Analogue, another cheese substitute made form vegetable proteins peanuts and soyabean is also likely to impact the global consumption of natural cheese.
