Food Emulsifier Market Outlook
A food emulsifier is an ingredient that is generally derived from natural sources such as plants and animals, and is used as a binding agent in the processed food industry. Increasing consumption of processed and functional food over the years has fuelled the demand for food emulsifiers.
A food emulsifier is a substance used for binding immiscible liquids so as to provide a stable texture. Food emulsifiers stabilize food by increasing its kinetic stability. An examples of a food emulsifier is egg yolk, in which the main emulsifying agent is lecithin.
As food emulsifiers are hydrophilic in nature, they help solubilize the components of food ingredients such as proteins, carbohydrates, oils, fats, and others with a homogenous texture. Food emulsifier are not only used for texturing and blending food ingredients but also to increase the shelf life of various packaged foods, thereby functioning as a food preservative.
Thus, food emulsifiers impart quality and freshness, and make food products look more appealing, and moreover, prevent mold growth in such products. Innovation in processed food has been the major driving factor for the global food emulsifier market.
Food Emulsifier Market Dynamics
Fortified foods generally require food emulsifiers to bind essential micronutrients such as vitamins and minerals with staple food such as oil, margarine, wheat flour, etc. Thus, the increasing growth of the fortified food market is expected to drive the demand for food emulsifiers in the coming years.
One of the major factors that is expected to drive the growth of the food emulsifier market across the globe is the expansion of processed food industries in developing countries such as India, China, Indonesia, etc. Rapid urbanization and changing lifestyles have had a great impact on processed food, which has, in turn, created vigorous demand for food emulsifiers in recent years. Bound to these factors, the global food emulsifier market is anticipated to remain positive during the forecast period.
