Apple Concentrate Market Trends/Drivers
Rising demand for organic apple juices impelling market growth
Organic fruits are extremely nutritious as they are grown without the involvement of any synthetic chemicals, fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides. They contain high amounts of vitamins, flavonoids, carotenoids, and antioxidants, which are essential for decreasing oxidative stress in the body. Organic apple concentrate is one such fruit compound that is highly nutritious and widely utilized for manufacturing apple-flavored beverages. At present, there is an increase in the consumption of organic apple juices instead of consuming sugar-containing synthetic fruit juices and carbonated beverages for hydration. Besides this, the rising utilization of organic fruit juices in bakeries to produce pastries and pies is further catalyzing the demand for organic apple juices.
Growing consumption of dietary supplements is positively influencing sales of apple concentrate
Dietary supplements are effective in fulfilling nutritional requirements that are not fulfilled by regular diet intake. They contain various minerals, such as iron, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, manganese, magnesium, selenium, and copper. They also contain a wide variety of vitamins, such as vitamins A, C, B1, B2, K, E, and D, which are not found in any food products. Apple concentrate is currently incorporated into various dietary supplements to enhance their flavor and add a fruity essence, thereby making them more palatable. Furthermore, apple concentrate also contains quercetin, which possesses anti-cancer and antioxidant properties to strengthen the immune system of the body.
Increasing popularity of apple cider vinegar accelerating market growth
Apple cider vinegar is a fermented product manufactured from crushed apples, yeast, and sugar and widely used for cooking purposes and making salad dressings. It also possesses numerous health benefits and helps ease acid reflux in the stomach by reducing the concentration of acid and boosting the presence of essential bacteria in the digestive system.
