Paneer refers to a fresh, non-melting and unsalted white cheese which does not require aging or culturing. It is obtained by coagulating milk with a vegetable-derived acid and is characterized by a spongy and cohesive body with a close-knit texture and sweetish-acidic flavor. Paneer is rich in proteins, minerals, fats, iron, potassium, calcium and magnesium owing to which its consumption on a regular basis strengthens bones, maintains blood sugar levels and fluid balance, improves digestion, and helps in weight loss. Apart from this, as paneer is a coagulated form of casein which is a slow-digesting protein, it releases energy gradually. Owing to the numerous health benefits offered by paneer, it is preferred by athletes, bodybuilders, sprinters and other sports enthusiasts.
Due to the presence of varied nutrients in paneer like riboflavin, zinc, selenium, pantothenic acid, thiamine, phosphorus and vitamin B12, it aids in enhancing metabolism, regulating blood pressure, forming cartilages and strengthening the immune system. Due to these benefits, a growing number of health-conscious consumers is favoring paneer over its alternatives, thereby triggering the growth of the market across the globe. Moreover, owing to hectic lifestyles and altering food habits, the working population is shifting towards easy-to-prepare food products. As paneer is an extremely versatile ingredient, has an easy preparation process and saves cooking time, it is gaining traction globally. Looking forward, the global paneer market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% during 2019-2024, reaching a volume of 2.5 Million Tons by 2024.
