Food preservatives are chemical substances added to processed food and beverages to inhibit the growth of harmful microorganisms and the oxidation of constituents. They help prevent deterioration, spoilage and contamination, extend the shelf life of foodstuffs, reduce wastage, ensure safety, and enhance supply. Some of the commonly utilized preservatives include sugar, salt, nitrites, vinegar, citric acid, calcium propionate, butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA), butylated hydroxyl toluene (BHT), and tert-butyl hydroquinone (TBHQ). At present, the utilization of food preservatives is generally regulated and monitored by the governing authorities of different countries.
The growing focus on maintaining health and hygiene standards is shifting consumer preferences toward hygienically packaged and fortified food products. This acts as a major factor escalating the demand for food preservatives in processed items like crackers, cereals, bread, snacks, cheese, yogurt, deli meats, sauces, and soups around the world. Moreover, rapid urbanization, busy lifestyles, rising per capita incomes, and the increasing trend of nuclear families are promoting the consumption of ready-to-eat (RTE) food items that require minimal preparation and cooking time. Apart from this, the rising health consciousness among individuals is driving the demand for organic preservatives and clean label ingredients. They are non-toxic, soluble, and economical and help retain the natural color, flavor and texture of the food. They also delay rancidity, improve appearance, and maintain the nutritional quality and freshness of products. Additionally, their demand is anticipated to rise as gelling agents and flavor enhancers in beverages and confectionary items across the globe.
