The latest report by IMARC Group titled, “Flavoured Milk Market in India: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024”, critically examines the flavoured milk market in India. Flavoured milk refers to a ready-to-drink dairy product which is prepared by mixing milk, sugar, emulsifiers and numerous flavours such as rose, chocolate, banana and vanilla. It contains the same essential nutrients as plain milk which include calcium, protein, vitamin D, vitamin A, vitamin B12, potassium, phosphorus, riboflavin and niacin.
Flavoured milk has gained popularity in India on account of its numerous benefits. It offers ease of convenience, longer shelf-life and can be consumed directly without any need of boiling.
