Digestive biscuits are a rich source of fiber and are preferred by the consumers willing to avoid consumption of sugar and fructose corn syrups. Moreover, biscuits in general have rich nutritional profile, including fats, fibers, and carbohydrates.

Apart from large-scale production companies dominating the market, local small-scale bakers focused on innovation are also producing delicious biscuit products with authentic recipes.

However, several of these countries have high economic, political, and currency volatility, and they exhibit greater liability to infrastructure and labor disruptions than more established markets.
