Food processing units in Europe are expected to include this functional ingredient in manufacturing various food products owing to its crunchiness, appealing taste, and steady supply. Furthermore, the positive outlook of the organic personal care sector in the region, fueled by growing awareness regarding the benefits of natural and chemical-free ingredients, is expected to open new avenues.
