DUBLIN, January 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/gfpl5g/food_enzymes) have announced the addition of the "Food Enzymes Market: Global Trends & Forecasts To 2018" report to their offering.
This report examines the global trends and forecasts for the food enzymes market discussing types (carbohydrate, protease, lipase), applications (beverages, dairy, bakery) and sources (microorganisms, plants, animals).
Food enzymes act as a highly selective catalyst and function in metabolic reactions and in the conversion of complex molecules to smaller ones. Enzymes form an integral part of the global food additives industry. They are primarily involved in the conversion of carbohydrate to carbohydrase, protein to protease, and lipid to lipase. Food enzymes such as carbohydrase, protease, and lipase have anti-staling, digestive, and softening properties, which increase the shelf life of foods. The advent of such versatile functions has escalated their usage in application-specific ingredients and new upscale end-use products.
Carbohydrase has diverse applications within the food industry, making it the largest type of food enzyme, accounting for almost 70% of the market. Protease and lipase both have their major application in the dairy sector. They are mainly produced from microbial sources because of lower production costs and higher productivity. Comparatively, plants and animals are the depleting source of enzymes. The US is one of the largest players in the food enzyme business due to the excessive demand for processed food products, followed by China.
This research report provides a comprehensive analysis of the global market, which is witnessing faster growth on account of its diverse applications in the beverages, bakery and confectioneries, processed foods, and dairy products sectors. This market was examined in terms of value on regional and country levels. The changing trends in the consumption of food enzymes reflect the increased product penetration and purchasing power of the global population in the emerging economies, as well as the shift towards exotic and novel flavors in the developed nations. The market is predicted to continue flourishing in both developing and developed regions. The growth is also attributed to the growing demands for healthy and nutritious processed foods.
