Rising demand for low trans-fat and gluten-free products
Consumers are becoming more health-conscious, and their nutritional preferences are changing, leading to a rise in demand for gluten-free and low-carbohydrate products. Food manufacturers now make bakery products that have reduced sodium content and low-saturated fats, with the help of emulsifiers and other additives. A growing trend has also been witnessed with respect to demand for vegetarian and organic bakery products. The demand for gluten-free products has witnessed strong growth in Europe and North America, especially in the U.S., due to awareness about the benefits of gluten-free diets.
Manufacturers in the Asia-Pacific region are expanding their product portfolios owing to the diversified preference and improving living standards of consumers. China, Hong Kong, and Malaysia have witnessed a high growth in demand for bread in the market whereas demand for rice bread is higher in the Japanese market.
Health issues due to excess consumption of trans fatty acids
In developing nations, trans-fatty acids are widely used in food manufacturing owing to their melting point at room temperature between saturated and unsaturated fats. They are found in hard margarine, partially hydrogenated oils, and in some bakery products and fried foods. Trans-fatty acids are most commonly found in processed foods containing partially hydrogenated vegetable oils, such as margarine, palm oil, and butter fat which are used as baking ingredients. Epidemiologic and biochemical evidence suggest that excessive usage of trans-fatty acid in the diet may lead to significant risk of cardiovascular diseases and cancer in humans. Awareness about such negative health effects of trans-fatty acids is affecting the baking fats & shortenings market, and in turn, the baking ingredients market.
Baking ingredient manufacturers are focusing on reducing the trans-fatty acid content in their products and are also developing alternatives for them. The governments of many countries have fixed the intake level of trans-fatty acids for various food products. Currently, trans-fatty acids in foods are labeled in the U.S., but not in the U.K. and Europe. The UK Food Standards Agency (FSA) is in favor of the revision of the European directive that governs the content and format of nutrition labels in the U.K. (and the Rest of Europe) so that trans-fatty acids are labeled.
