Increasing Demand for Clean-Label, Organic, and Plant-Based Ingredients Fuels the Middle East & Africa Powdered Flavors Market
Global consumers are becoming highly concerned about the food they consume, owing to which they are paying more attention to the product labels and the ingredients used in processed food products. The preference for 100% natural and simple ingredients has increased, compelling manufacturers to launch ingredients with clean-label claims. Organic food products are becoming increasingly popular owing to their perceived health benefits. Ingredients in organic products come from organically certified farms that follow strict farming practices. Organic products are free of pesticides, chemical fertilizers, and genetically modified organisms (GMOs), increasing their appeal among consumers, who are ready to pay high prices.
Manufacturers are launching products with organic, non-GMO (genetically modified organisms), and 100% natural claims to fulfill the changing requirements of consumers. In July 2022, Symrise also unveiled blueberry ingredients and active compounds in powder, flakes, and certified organic extracts that can be used as a flavoring agent in baked goods, ice creams, beverages, dietary supplements, and baby food.
Consumers are rapidly shifting toward vegan food due to rising health concerns related to animal-origin food and the perceived health benefits of plant-based food. Vegetarianism and veganism are on the rise across the globe as consumers are cutting down their meat and dairy intake and preferring products with 100% plant-based ingredients. Thus, constant product innovations, a rising preference for vegan food, and the growing popularity of organic and all-natural products are expected to accelerate market growth.
