Fermented ingredients are food additives used for triggering fermentation in food and non-food products to obtain the desired chemical properties. Some of the commonly used fermented ingredients include industrial enzymes, biogas, vitamins, xanthan, antibiotics, amino acids and antibiotics. They are commonly added to food products to initiate microbial growth and enzymatic conversion to produce cultured milk, yogurt, wine, beer, cider, tempeh, miso, kimchi and fermented meats. Fermented ingredients are acidic in nature and can alter the flavor and state of the food. They can also aid in reducing digestive ailments and enhancing the shelf life of the products. Fermented ingredients are widely used across the food and beverage, cosmetic, biofuel, textile, paper and pharmaceutical industries.
Fermented Ingredients Market Trends:
Significant growth in the food and beverage industry across the globe is one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market. Food product manufacturers are increasingly using amino acid-based fermented ingredients to preserve foods and produce premium-quality fermented and alcoholic beverages. Moreover, rising health consciousness among the masses regarding the benefits of consuming fermented food products is providing a thrust to the market growth. Fermented ingredients consist of healthy bacteria and yeast that break down carbohydrates, starch and sugars in foods, which can be further used to produce kimchi, tempeh, kombucha and yogurt. In line with this, the increasing demand for fermented ingredients in the pharmaceutical industry is also contributing to the growth of the market. These ingredients are widely used for breaking down compounds under aerobic or anaerobic conditions and enhance the bioavailability of medicinal compounds. Other factors, including the increasing utilization of fermented ingredients in animal feed, along with extensive research and development (R&D) activities, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth.
