Growth in demand for functional foods

Changes in lifestyles and lack of time have led to high consumption of functional foods in countries around the world, especially in Asia. With growth in workload, busy lifestyles, and increase in the number of working women (considering women play a predominant role in preparing meals in households), the time and means to intake healthy food have reduced. This has resulted in the growing demand for products that offer balanced nutrition. Thus, the consumer demand for functional foods, nutraceuticals, and supplements has been increasing. As insoluble dietary fibers form an essential ingredient in functional food products, their market is also increasing.

With changing consumer lifestyles, there is a need for intake of extra fiber. Insoluble dietary fiber content varies in different types of foods. Several key players such as Archer Daniels Midland Company (U.S.), Cargill (U.S.), and E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company (U.S.), offer a range of insoluble dietary fibers obtained from different sources including wheat, oats, corn, peas, potato, legumes, and rice for their application in food, feed, and pharmaceutical products. Further, the products offered by these companies are also in accordance with consumer needs. This is projected to drive the market for insoluble dietary fibers.


Dietary fibers cannot be digested by humans due to lack of necessary enzymes in the digestive tract. More specifically, dietary fibers are resistant to hydrolysis. Since dietary fibers cannot be digested, they pass through the body almost unchanged and cannot be used as an energy source. These properties of fibers are useful in the physiological functions that they perform. However, the same characteristics become a hindrance while incorporating fibers as ingredients in food products. Blending of fibers into the product is of high importance for the chemical stability of the product across range of temperatures, and requires time. However, with taking up the volume of the overall product and not contributing to the energy, these fibers become a cost-intensive ingredient. Further, there would be an economic impact on the manufacturer due to the high price of dietary fibers and also the difference in the technology involved in obtaining them.
