How is Increasing Demand for Natural Ingredients Stimulating Market Growth?

Rising health and wellness concerns are prompting food and beverage manufacturers to use natural ingredients over synthetic ones. Diseases such as cancer, diabetes, allergies, cardiovascular disorders, are prompting them to adopt a healthy lifestyle, which involves the use of healthy, natural, and organic ingredients.

Food manufacturers are incorporating natural emulsifier extracts as they have large surface areas which allow them to easily pull water and oil. In addition, fibrous compositions have lipophilic and hydrophilic ends that attract oil and moisture to the matrix, further binding them together. This will ultimately stimulate market growth by increasing the demand for natural ingredients.
