The Global Dietary Fibers Market is expected to grow at a high CAGR during the forecasting period (2022-2029).
Dietary Fiber is part of food that the body can’t absorb or digest. Fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes contain dietary fiber, which is crucial for human health. Dietary fiber promotes a healthy digestive tract, reduces LDL cholesterol, and helps with weight loss and many other benefits.
FDA’s regulatory definition of Dietary fiber requires non-digestible carbohydrates to possess a “Physiological effect that benefits human health.” Synthetically created dietary fibers will have to provide evidence of benefit to human health to meet the FDA’s requirement. FDA also increased the daily reference value of dietary fiber.
FDA recently changed the guidelines regarding dietary fiber. This new FDA definition will remove a lot of products from ‘fiber-rich category.
The western diet consists of refined and processed food such as canned fruits, vegetables, pulp-free juice, white bread, pasta, and refined grain cereals. All these foods are lower in fiber, so fiber intake in the western population is smaller. Thus paving the way for the Dietary Fibers Market to emerge in these countries.
A low fiber diet can cause colon cancer as well as diabetes, heart disease, Haemorrhoids, duodenal ulcer, chronic constipation, etc. These facts prove the need for dietary supplements and fiber-rich foods. Along with an increase in demand for whole-grain foods, demand for dietary fiber supplements is also increasing.
The problem with dietary fiber supplements and foods with added fiber is that they don’t contain all the components present in naturally fiber-rich foods such as whole grains and fruits. That’s why they are often less effective. In the future, if entire grain products become popular, that could be fatal for the dietary fiber supplements Industry.
Based on Physical properties, Dietary fibers can be segmented into two categories. Soluble and Insoluble. Soluble fiber helps with irritable bowel syndrome.
Insoluble fiber helps avoid constipation. Soluble fibers are of two types, viscous and non-viscous fiber. Viscous soluble fiber becomes a thick gel when it comes in contact with liquids in the digestive tract. Due to this characteristic, this type of cholesterol can bind to cholesterol in the small intestine.
The binding of Cholesterol prevents its absorption into the bloodstream and keeps cholesterol levels low, Insoluble & non-viscous fibers do not possess this ability.
Based on application, Dietary Fibers Market can be segmented into Food & Beverages, and Pharmaceuticals. Within the food & beverages, the category market can be further segmented into Bakery, Baby & Toddlers, Cereals, Sports Nutrition, and others.
Many Foods & beverages companies have launched ‘high fiber products. Bakery Industry was the leading sector in Fiber containing product launches in 2017.
Based on geography, the Dietary Fibers Market can be segmented into North America, South America, Europe, Asia-pacific, and the rest of the world.
Most North Americans consume less than half the recommended amount of dietary fiber. Dietary Fibers Market is not significant in places where people eat whole-grain foods that including most developing countries. Dietary Fibers Market is most dominant in North America & Europe.
There are plenty of dietary fiber manufacturers who provide a wide range of products for the food & beverage industry, Some of them are Fibersol, Ingredion. Subsidiaries of major pharmaceutical companies as well as private manufacturers which make Dietary fiber supplements are Benefiber (Novartis), Metamucil (Procter & Gamble), Citrucel (GlaxoSmithKline), Fiber Choice (caret group- Private), Konsyl, Vitafusion Fiber, FiberCon, etc.
Manufacturers are adding dietary fibers to their products. Synthetic fibers are getting invented. Companies are advertising their fiber-rich products.
