The Global "Fermented Ingredients Market" is expected to grow at a high CAGR of 8.6% during the forecasting period (2022-2029).
Fermentation is considered an early preservation technique in the food industry due to its potential benefits on human gut health and the immune system. Food ingredients such as amino acids, organic acids, and enzymes are used in fermented mode to enhance the nutritional and preservative qualities. Fermented food ingredients are naturally derived through microbial fermentation of real food and are used as natural preservatives in various food and beverages. Food manufacturers worldwide use these naturally derived ingredients to deliver the fresh taste of their food products over the shelf-life. These are used in various food products such as dairy, bakery products, prepared meals, deli meats, and various other food and beverage products.
The addition of artificial preservatives such as benzoates, sorbates, sulfates, and nitrates causes several disorders. The rising awareness among the health-savvy population about these artificial preservatives is increasing the demand for fermentation-based ingredients. The code population is looking towards fermented ingredients and increases key factors in fermentation-based. This is motivating food manufacturers to use fermented ingredients. Furthermore, the regulations associated with the use of artificial and chemical preservatives in food products support the growth of the fermented ingredients market. The development of organic, gluten-free, and non-GMO ferment supports the growth of the drive market growth over the forecast period. However, misconceptions prevailing among certain people about food consumption derived from microbial cultured ingredients hinder the market growth.
The global fermented ingredients market has been segmented by product type into organic acids, amino acids, enzymes, sweeteners, antibiotics, vitamins, minerals, etc. Organic acids evolved as the largest segment owing to the growing demand for organic acids like gluconic acid, citric acid, and lactic acid from food, plastic, and consumer chemicals industries. Organic acids are mostly produced by submerged fermentation. By application, cosmetics are likely to witness the highest growth rate due to the growing interest in effective but chemical-free products. Skincare products such as moisturizers, serums, adrenals often contain herbinsin and yeasts, which can be fermented. Fermentation of these ingredients enhances the absorbability and potent of the cosmetic products.
